High Elf Prince
Armour of Calador, Guardian Phoenix, The White Sword: 240pts

Lords: 240pts

Noble
Dragon Armour , generic 4+ ward, Battle Standard, Great Weapon: 169pts

Mage
Level 2, Seer Staff, dispel scroll: 185pts

Mage
Level 2, silver wand: 145pts

Heroes (3): 499 Points

10 Elven Archers: 110pts

10 Elven Archers: 110pts

25 Lothern Sea Guard
Full Command, shields: 350pts

Core (3): 570points

17 White lions of Chrace
Full command, Flaming attach banner: 295pts

17 Phoenix Guard (255)
Full command, AP Banner, Talisman of Light: 345pts

Special (2): 640 points

Elven Repeater Bolt Thrower: 100pts

Elven Repeater Bolt Thrower: 100pts

Great Eagle: 50pts

Great Eagle: 50pts

Rare (4): 300 points


Ok so the plan is this:

Lord goes in with the white lions to give them stubborn leadership 10 plus another 4 str 6 attacks. Also with flaming attacks they will do well vs Abominations and Hydras.

Bsb goes in with the phoenix guard to give them some extra hits.

Mages will also go in these units or behind (dependent on opponents’) but leave before combat

The Sea Guard will sit in the centre flanked by both units of archers. The 2 blocks of elites will sit behind the archers. Archers can cover them from shooting and flee when enemy is in range (bsb rerolling psychology)

Mages will take lore of life to support all units (between both of them will have 5 out of the 6 spells)

Archers and Sea guard will try to reduce some numbers from bigger horde units, also will be great for taking down units of black guard or small hound units.

The seaguard can also add its attacks in against weaker armoured enemy.

Eagles are for heading after warmachines or solo characters or even combine charging small units of skirmishers.

That BSB setup is what I am looking to take as well when I use him on foot. The only thing I wonder about is a little more speed other than the eagles. A chariot or small cav unit to just have the flexibility of a counter charge could be helpful. Unfortunately, I'm starting to think that this kind of flexibility might come at the expense of rare units.

I used to always field 2 lions chariots and some dragon princes. I have had the dragon princes underperform in 7th Ed so dropped them (only took them as i liked my connversions)

I love my lion chariots but it is finding the points for them. I never used to take the phoenix guard but they seem very good now and I dont fancy dropping my white lions (already had to drop the swordmasters for the seaguard)

It all depends on what happens with the elite army rule for future lists

I assume this is an 8th list.

In which case, the Level 2 Seerstaff Mage is illegal - you cannot take two arcane items on one mage, scrolls in 8th are now no exception.

Hi Quannum,

Yes it is an 8th ed section list

From what I read in the book you can take a scroll with other arcae items. You just cant take more than 1 per army.

Will double check when I can as I might have read it wrong and if I have then will drop the seerstaff (since im going for 5 of the spells anyway) and go for something else
