1000 Points High Elves - Needing Advice - All Comers List

Post by RapierSix2587 » Tue Jul 29, 2014 11:16 pm

Hey everyone,

having been told now by people who know the rules better then myself that certain things I can and can't do and some things work better, I have worked this knowledge into my army and I'll put the list below this, please give any advice or tips, feel free to tear it to shreds too, any help is appreciated, here's the list:

Lords (235pts)

Loremaster of Hoeth w/ Charmed Shield

Core (250pts)

10x Silver Helms w/ Champion, Standard Bearer, Shields

Special (445pts)

5x Dragon Princes of Caledor w/ Champion, Standard Bearer

20x Sword Masters of Hoeth w/ Champion, Standard Bearer

Rare (70pts)

Eagle Claw Bolt Thrower

So that's my list, the Loremaster goes with his Swordmasters in a 7x3 Configeration to maximise facing at this point level and get the most hitting power, Dragon Princes try and help the Silver Helms with Flanking, Silver Helms focus on units they can try and kill on the charge, Bolt Thrower takes care of cannons and the like.. Not a good plan, but it is a fairly tough list I think, and the reason I don't have 21 Lions instead is because A, I don't have 21 Models, and B, If I cast the Beast Signature Spell I become better then Lions, so yeah.. Let me know what you guys think, thank you!

Drop Bolt Thrower and Princes, bring noble with Banner of the world Dragon. Take life magic. Laugh as your opponents die in droves.

Hey Owen,

My LGS Doesn't allow BotWD in any of their tournaments, campaigns or anything like that, and the people I normally game with won't let me use it against them, they won't play me if I do.. So that's out.

And to take Life means dropping my Loremaster and taking an Archmage.. Is that worth the trade off at this point level? The reason I chose the Loremaster was cause he can be offensive and defensive in range and combat.

And my Princes are my best unit, haha! They always do great!

I would prob take mage over loremaster but thats a matter of choice right?
Why I say that? interesting spells and can get the lore attribute to enhance ward saves a bit, can be helpfull :)
