8th ed. High Elf list, 1st try.

Ok, I've been challenged to run a gamey B*****d high elf list with BOTWD. Swapping armies with Hamish. I don't actually have any models. This is what I came up with. It's a high mobile shooty list with lots of White Lions to wreck people's hobbies.

Loremaster of Hoeth
    Blade of Leaping gold
    Golden Crown of Atrazar
    Shield of the Merwyrm
I might swap out for Talisman of preservation and Book of Hoeth, still umming and ahhing, but this thing is gold.

Lothern Sea Helm
    BSB, longbow, Banner of Eternal Flame
Free reform when charged, yes please. Flaming attacks, yes please.

   High Magic (Soul quench)
   Khaine's ring of fury
   Dispel Scroll

2x 15 Archers
Pew...Pew... die.

3 x 5 Ellyrian Reavers
Pew...Pew... runaway!

30 White lions
   Full command
   Banner of Swiftness
In your face 6" movement... BAM! Hammertime!

28 White lions
   Full command
   Banner of the World Dragon
I am the indestructeable Anvil!

3 x Bolt Throwers
Pew...Pew...Pew... TAKE IT OFF!

2 x 1 Eagles
March block...redirect...flee...support flanking...still the best chaff in the game.  

What do you think?


  1. The challenge was more about you two swapping armies and trying to break each other's hobbies :P and maybe about being able to see things from the other side of the table, so that you can find strategies to work around the BOTWD

    And... BOTWD isn't seriously broken, just a little broken :P

    Skaven, now that stuff is broken - hence why I'm collecting it to play once I'm bored of 100 gobbo hordes with bows and the spider banner

    Love from your NG playing, Epidemius killing wife,

  2. Leave Epidemius alone, he's just an accountant at the end of the day.
