Hello fellow elf players!

Like so many others I've been a long time stalker here, but recently I felt like sharing my list that I've been playing since the start of 8th ed.
It have worked well for me in most cases, but I wanted to hear your thoughts on the list.

Here's the list:


Archmage lvl. 4 (Shadow)


Mage lvl.2 (Beast or High usually)
Dispel scroll

Noble BSB
Great weapon
Armour of caledor


30x Spears FC
Gleaming pennant

12x archers

12x Archers

5x Ellyrion reavers


28x White Lions FC
27x Phoenix Guard FC (BSB here)
5x Dragon princes


2x Eagles
1x Frost Phoenix

Welcome Sweden!


It’s a good list. With the threat of Mindrazor from Shadow it’s got three blocks that are dangerous in combat, it’s got good magic some redirectors and a Frostheart. It might struggle against a gunline because M5 is not that fast or against an enemy with lots of fliers that it could struggle to pin down.

It might be an idea to replace the Phoenix (and one Eagle) with four RBT. This stops enemies flying around with impunity. It also lets you outshoot more opponents, meaning they have to come to your blocks. A unit with The Withering on it is in for a bad time vs four RBT. The Frostheart is good but I feel the RBT are a better fit here.

I would put World Dragon on the Lions, it’ll make them practically immune to half the stuff they care about. I’d take an Arcane Item on the Archmage, probably Book of Hoeth though there’s a case for Earthing Rod with Shadow’s love of dice. Razor Standard on PG is almost a standard pick to give them more bite vs armour. I’d pay for these by dropping the DP’s (in my experience they’re not that good) or possibly some elite infantry from each block.
