Hey guys I've been playing a list really similar to this for a while now and I decided that it's time to mix it up. I used to run an Archmage and that just wasn't cutting it, he was too unreliable in his casting and such and wanted to give a prince a shot. Other changes are more swordmasters. I like them a lot and want to see how they do with a few more bodies.

Here it is (Take all comers, btw):

Prince – 273
General
Dragon Armor
Barded Elven Steed
Star Lance
Dragonscale Shield
Sacred Incense

Noble – 184
BSB
Banner of the World Dragon
Dragon Armor
Great Weapon

Mage – 130
Dispel Scroll
Silver Wand

(19) Spearmen – 230
Command
Lion Standard

(10) Archers – 110

Lion Chariot of Chrace - 140

Lion Chariot of Chrace - 140

(11) Sword Masters of Hoeth – 165

(5) Shadow Warriors – 80

(12) White Lions of Chrace – 255
Command
Standard of Balance

(5) Dragon Princes – 250
Command
Banner of Sorcery

Great Eagle - 50

Great Eagle - 50

Repeater Bolt Thrower - 100

Repeater Bolt Thrower – 100

Total: 2248

I see magic defense being a problem, and ideas? At the moment, the Prince is going with the DP's, Noble with the Swordmasters or White Lions, and mage with the other unit (SM or WL).

Please give some feedback, I've never used a prince before so I'm sure I messed something up! Thanks!

Don't even bother with the silver wand on the mage. With just a single level 1 that extra spell isn't going to do a whole lot. I also wouldn't take the banner of sorcery (or command on the DP's) either in this case. Just give him 2 scrolls and always take high magic. That way you can always cast drain or shield of saphery. Most likely you're not going to be getting any spells off so you have to use him defensively and that means 2 scrolls.

With the points you save try to get some fear protection on those sword masters. I prefer the standard of balance but you could flip the lion standard to them and give the spears the war banner. I'd stick the noble with the spears to give them a bit more punch and the mage in the white lions as your swords should just go for combat.

This I agree with. I would however swap World Dragon for the Radiant Gem and spend as many points on your Mage as you can, that way you have a magic phase. To pay for this I'd drop four Swordmasters. You also need at least one more DP so that the unit gives the Prince a 'look out sir' roll.

Then I rather like the look of the army.
