So I have discovered the benefit of using one list over and over rather than constantly changing. You get to know every unit very well, you know exactly how to deploy against everything, you know what needs support, it really helps you. This is my 2k list.

Noble, general, armour of caledor, amulet of fire, great weapon (goes in PG)

Noble, BSB, great weapon, armour of protection (goes in first spear unit)

Mage, 2 scrolls, drain magic and shield of saphery

19 spearmen, full command

20 spearmen, musician, banner

8 Dragon Princes, full command, warbanner

6 reavers, musician

17 Phoenix Guard, full command

Lion chariot

Tiranic Chariot

eagle

2 bolt throwers


I don't really keep track of their win/loss, but I have been very happy with them. Tonight I achieved a massacre against a Skaven army. The only VP I lost was the reavers (sacrificed them to redirect a rat ogre unit), a bolt thrower, and half wounds on the BSB. The skaven were reduced to a ratling gun, a unit of slaves and a unit of giant rats. My dice rolling in combat was absolutely brilliant which contributed to the massacre, though I was slighty winning anyway. Two shining examples; DP got charged by a unit of clan rats (I over ran into their path) and won combat first round whch was brilliant, second round they won by enough to break and destroy the unit. Secondly, my spearmen with bsb got rear charged by the doomwheel, which are very nasty critters. 4 spear attacks caused 2 wounds (needing 6's) and in the second round, the BSB got stuck in and killed the doomwheel! I fully expected the unit to be destroyed when they got hit.

That is a nice army, don't you ever suffer from lack of magic?

I don't actually, but yeah it is a potential problem if I face really magic heavy lists. Most of my opponents go magic light, its only VC that occasionally give me trouble, but theirs is quite defensive and supporting so as long as I can do well in combat I get out alive.

The army is very hard hitting and combat oriented, it relies on getting into the fight quickly which reduces the threat oof magic. I also use the DP as a shock unit to try to punch through and destroy whatever unit mage lords are hiding in as quick as possible, which stops their magic. And of course the odd irresistable drain magic is a nice boon. smile.gif

That is a very balanced list, I like it. In fact, I have no real critiques for it either, nicely done Strewart.

I have been doing much the same thing with my high elves. I use the same 2k list in every game, and mix it up a little when we go to 2.5k. Though, our armies are quite different.

Good list, I like it. I think I would like to add sword masters though, I don't really leave without them anymore. Noticed you took out archers, I've been contemplating losing mine as well.

Swordmasters are an interesting choice.. I wouldn't mind a small unit of them, in fact I was considering dropping the tiranoc for some. But they are extremely fragile and you can be sure they will take a LOT of shooting and magic. I also don't really like the models.

On the other hand, I love the PG models. I have made the list to be somewhat competative so it can win battles for me, but when given the choice I went for the models I like and the theme for the army that suited me rather than hardcore competativeness. Which is the main reason there is no magic; I hate magic unless I am using undead.

Archers.. Minimum unit is more expensive than a bolt thrower, has less range, less strength, less flexibility and only a few more shots. In their current state they aren't really a viable choice, and I haven't found a way to paint them in my Spartan theme that I like.
