1000 Point High Elf Cavalry list

Post by mrshadowguy » Sun Jan 25, 2015 11:39 am

So, I usually play Dwarfs in Fantasy, but I felt like giving something new a go. I've got High Elves now and wanted to run an all mounted list. Is this viable? And would this list work? Any feed back appreciated.

I would drop the prince for another unit of silver helms, or a couple of units of reavers. But to answer your question, yes it is viable as long as you don't play watchtower, in which case you almost auto-lose.

Can't have 2 magic weapons. There's a build I've often seen and fought against and it's called the murder noble. You basically have the same gear except give him the giant blade and other tricksters shard. Now your guy is asf, is always hitting at str 7 and forces anyone in btb contact to re roll their successful ward saves. It's like having your own blender vampire!

Not sure about this. I don't feel that this unit works very well with such a small unit size. I would wait till a larger points size before you add in another main combat block. Perhaps another chariot instead and something like a dispell scroll for the mage.

Are you keeping them as pure high elves or will you be planning on turning this into a Khaine elf force. The latter option can give you even more choice for a pure cav force.

Imo, silverhelms are kind've meh. Great to get your min core taken care of and get a hvy cav unit but I've seen them often struggle against anything with a high armour save or toughness and they fold like nothing if something half decent in a fight ever get's to charge them.

I kind've agree about dropping the prince. Seems like way too many points invested in 1 guy at this game size where they may not earn the pts invested back during a game. I think it could work, but either way is decent.
