Maybe a Lv.2 Mage with Silver wand, Seer and Channeler Honors?
I’d be tempted by a Dispel Scroll Tyrren but your guy looks quite potent for a lvl 2.

Re: 6th edition homebrew rules

An all cavalry High Elf list doesn't feel thematic, but it seems that's the best way to make High Elves work in 6th. Probably strongest but other respectable builds exist. I remember fighting a decent list at the time which was built around infantry. It had a spear block, two units of archers, two ...

Mostly fighting all Kinds of undead and some dwarves a unit of stoic elites feels tempting and more fun to take on.
They sound really cool as an elite unit and likely more effective too.

Re: 2500 points vs VC (Warhammer Armies Project (Edited)

I don’t know the specifics of the Warhammer Armies Project. In general though, I like the Griffon and Lions because they focus killing power and offer ways of not getting bogged down in long combats. Having a reasonable amount of shooting and magic should always be helpful.

Re: Fielding a prince in Warhammer Armies project

MR(5) seems very situational, even for 40pts. It might still be one of the more powerful items out there, assuming the overall powerlevel has dropped in WAP. Looks like you might want it on a main battle unit, to protect multiple characters for example. The 8th version is a great pick on a mid-size...

BotWD also got a nerf in that it now gives Magic Resistance (5) instead of the straight up ward.
A big jump, comparable to the move from the 'Immune to Spells' 7th Edition version to what we saw in 8th.
