Total - 1981pts

Power Dice - 3 ^-^
Dispel Dice - 3

2 dispel scrolls




couple of notes:


the princes on dragons have great weapons for the off chance that their dragons are slain, they then start benefiting from them.

i'm not sure which list to take, i like the 8 bolt thrower list becuase i think it's funny i like the mage list because i think it is effective (and can take on even vampire magic in defence) and i like the last list becuase it is hard hitting and doesnt need magic to work.


decisions, decisions.


any advice on which lists are better and how to tweak them would be appreciated

Default Re: more high elf lists..........

Just a quick word of warning. List 2 is illegal. Since the army book was updated we have lost the 2 bolt throwers/eagles/chariots for 1 slot rule.

Personally I like List 4 the most. I find Archmages to be horribly expensive for their uses. Plus 2 dragons is just painful, nasty and evil ;D

i realised that i was getting my books crossed as soon as i left my computer :funny:

i even deleted the list from my post before reading your reply :P


i like the last list as well, but my main fantasy opponents are:


High Elves (sometimes uses the prince setup i have here, sometimes a dragon mage instead. always has lots of spears/archers and silver helms)

Orks and Goblins x 2 (one list has gringor in a unit of black orks, lots of standard ork units and a couple of gobbo units with fanatics, the other has a black ork warboss in a unit of black orks, a unit of savage orks, 2 units of goblins with 3 fanatics each - one of those units has a mage, a unit of about 10 squig hoppers, some wolf riders with a character, a giant, a rock lobba and a doom diver - the second list is a GT one)

Dwarves (only 1 cannon, 1 grudge thrower and one unit of..... the shooty guys - NO ANVIL!!, the rest is solid, regimented, blocks of nails infantry - if memory serves, one unit of slayers, one unit of hammerers, one unit of iron breakers with his lord and a unit of standard warriors.)

Vampire counts (there is only 1 vampire counts opponent i face and he brings 15 power dice to the table, 4 vampires, one unit of skellies, one unit of grave guard, one unit of bats and one unit of banshees/wraiths - he has some spirit hosts for his spell of creaty-ness and the rest of his points are zombies - lots of zombies. i find it a real challenge to take on, and havent beaten it yet, but he hasnt faced my new breed of armies yet - high elves and bretonnia!)


to that end, i think the mage list will help against all of them (especially the vampires) but none of the lists i have deal out enough damage to seriously threaten some of those armies. the vortex shard is a no-brainer against undead becuase it gives them an entire turn with no raises.

i can deal with the other armies (dwarves are stubborn little beggers, but if i can take out their war machines i can usually deal with them pretty easily)


anyone please feel free to suggest combinations/lists i havent considered. i tend to find a way of thinking that i like and spam that untill i hit my points limit.



i like to dominate at least 2 phases of the game, 3 if at all possible. i think the mage list dominates the magic and shooting phase as nothing i have can miscast misFIRE (oops :funny: )

the dragon list/s can dominate the combat phase (against ONE unit a turn) and thats about it - this is why i'm not sold on them.
