Default 1000pts High Elves

Hey all, picked up the new High Elf book yesterday, this is the first list I've come up with.



Noble: 118
-Great Weapon, Armour of Caledor.
General close combat elf, thought about the White Sword but it's an extra 34 points for killing blow basically.

Mage: 135
-Level 2.
Basic mage.

15 Spearmen: 169

-Full Command.
Normal rank and file elves to form a strong defence.

10 Archers: 110


10 Archers: 110

Fire support

15 Sword Masters of Hoeth: 255
-Full Command
The Counter-Attackers/Armour-Smashers of the army, can also form a nice defence.

Repeater Bolt Thrower: 100

To kill monsters or to weaken armoured units so they can be beaten in combat.

Thoughts?

Can i make a few suggestions

He is nice but i would suggest this.

Noble: 131
Dragon armour,sword of might, enchanted shield, helm of fortune.

For a re-rollable 2+ save and strength 5

Nothing wrong with your mage

Spearmen are nice.

One unit of archers is enough

Swordmen are leathal just get them into combat fast. You dont need a musitoin with them beacause they will win the cobat most of the time.

bring 2 reapeter bolt throwers to take down lot of targets with volly fire
that will soten the enemy up more.

That my prefrance personally.

Hmmm... it's nice to have a re-rollable save, but I'd prefer the extra strength really, especially since I'll be saving 13 pts.

Good

Good

Good point, it is only 1000 pts...

Hmmm... true, but then again he's only 6pts... I'll get rid of him if I need to...

Hmmm... I'd rather keep the archers than get an extra Bolt Thrower.

Okeydoke, thanks.

How's this then:

Minus
10 Archers: 110

Plus
5 Ellyrian Reavers:
-Harbringer, Bows.


This way I retain half the fire power but now I have a quick reaction unit that can fill multiple roles. Thoughts?

I'd keep your noble as is. If you can scrape the points though, the Talisman of Loec is invaluable.

Heres what I'd do -

Make the Spears 19 Strong, put the Character with them.

Drop an Archer Squad.

Drop the Swordmasters down to 12 and lose the Command. Put them in 6 x 2 or 7,5. That way you get 1 rank bonus point, but they dont need it anyway as they get enough kills to win combat anyway. Commands and ranks are a waste on them.

Keep the Bolt Thrower and Mage.

That leaves you 150 points, you could even take 5 Dragon Princes with that. Your best taking something with some speed. If you dont want the Princes you could get a Chariot and an Eagle, or some Reavers + some more items for your characters.

Okeydoke. But if I drop another archer unit I'll have none... :P.

So...

Minus:
SM's Command: 30
3 SwordMasters: 45

Plus:

4 Spear Elves: 36

LEFT WITH: 39

39 pts to go to...

Wait! *checks points* Yeah, I still have an extra point left... so 40 pts to work with:

Seerstaff of Saphery for the mage?
& something else (unless you can persuade me to use the tal' of loec, I don't like the thought of him losing 1 of 2 wound just like that...)

I was working off your first list so you'll have 150 points spare but you wont have the Reavers. Id probably go for an Eagle and Chariot or some Dragon Princes for those points rather than the Reavers.

Hmmm.... ok.... hmmm.... eh, this is a hard one.... Personally I'd like to retain some firepower if I'm up against other defencive armies... And a unit of 7 Fast Reaver Cavalry with Bows and a Harbringer is very tempting... And I'm worried about any evil spells/ranged weaponry killing the princes off... hmmm... I think I'll leave it as a variable.

So the original list: 997

Minus
10 Archers: 110
3 SM's and their Command:75

Plus
4 Spear Elves: 36
5 DP's or 7 ER's with a Harbringer & Bows: 150/154

New Total: 998/1002

7 Moving Bows will very rarely cause any damage. If anything you should be worried about your Reavers dying against enemy missiles and magic, they will be wounded on a 4 at worst and then only get a very poor save, the Princes are immune to fire based attacks and have a very good save.

If seven bows are rubbish then why the hell do I have ten of 'em with no saves? :P You do make a good point however with the survivability, now I actually think about it my earlier comment:

-is pretty silly :P. They'll only be killed off if I keep 'em in sight, which I'll try not to do. So yes, 5 Dragon Princes will be good, thankyou for the help.

So the list is:

Noble
-Great Weapon, Armour of Caledor.

Mage
-Level 2.

19 Spearmen
-Full Command.

10 Archers

12 Sword Masters of Hoeth

5 Dragon Princes

Repeater Bolt Thrower

Total: 998

Lol, well they have a range of 30'' not 24'', so they can outrange handguns and other types of bows. Plus they will probably be stationary, so its easier to hit. Then they are a required core at a cheap cost.

The Reavers are a good unit, but I think the Princes are better from a competative standpoint, I know I would rather face the Reavers than the Princes if i was your opponent, 1 or 2 fire balls with render the Reavers pretty useless.
