Hi, the lord cal suggested I make a thread to keep all my lists in one place due to the amount of them. So my aim here is to get constructive criticism on my lists, and to not bury all the other lists out there! :P

Lists:
end of days list
Zarkarian's host.
dragon fire, Caledor's 3000
the tower's guardians, 2500 coven of light

End of days tournament list.
I am not certain I can go to this tournament yet, however I have taken up the challenge to make a list that comes completely from saphery and fits high elven fluff rather well.

End of days list
Saphery
Lords
Prince Olyvar
Vambraces of defence
Armour of caledor
Great weapon
Other tricksters shard
257

Level 4 arch Mage Zarkarian metal
Anulian crystal
Opal amulet
Iron curse icon
320

Heroes
Noble argon
BSB
Dragon armour
Helm of fortune
Shield
Sword of might
158

Level 1 high Mage villetta
Dispel scroll
Sacred incense
130

Core
18  archers FC
Banner of eternal flames
233

10 archers musician
115

34 spear elves FC
333

Special
18 sword masters FC
Banner of swiftness
Amulet of light
330

28 Phoenix guard FC
Banner of sorcery
Skein silver
525

Rare
2 eagles
100

Total
2499

Fortitude 7
Breaking point 3

Drops 8


the character set up:
The prince will go with the Phoenix guard, and the bsb will either join them or the spear elves, the large unit of archers will go centrally and bunker the mages.

Why I chose the units that are in the list:
18 archers, a centrally placed Mage bunker, they can also help reduce wounds on regen monsters.

10 archers, if I put them on a flank they make quite a nice defence against light harassment troops.

34 spears, they can effectively remove enemy stead fast and tie up the enemy long enough to get a hammer in the enemy flank.

Sword masters, they are my secondary hammer unit, they are slightly over the optimum of 14 so that more make it into combat and hence they are more reliable.

Phoenix guard, my main hammer and also a good anvil, the 29 S4 attacks will hurt most things pretty effectively, and for anything that they don't hurt I have my characters to provide punch.

Eagles, are eagles.


So on this list, I have appear to be going to go to the tourney (or there is a much higher chance) so I have been revising the list. I have edited in the changes, those being the prince (from white sword to GW with VOD over GP and the other tricksters shard of loec) then a bit of point shuffling.

Hi, this is my second most recent list. I used it in a standard battle line against wood elves netting 1850 VP to his 1100, it has been rather effective but I am not sure of some additions like the reavers and the core being slightly over the minimum.

Zarkarian's host (v1)
Lords
Level 4 arch Mage zarkarian
Metal
Sigil of ausryan
Talisman of preservation
Iron curse icon
350

Heroes
Noble battle standard bearer
AoC
Guardian Phoenix
Great weapon.
168

Level 2 fire Mage
Seer staff
Flaming swords, flame cage
165

Core
22 archers FC
267

10 archers musician
115

34 spears FC
Standard of discipline
346

Special
14 sword masters FC
Banner of swiftness
amulet of light
270

22 phoenix guard FC
Banner of sorcery
Skein silver
420

5 dragon princes
150

5 reavers spears and musician
99

Rare
3 eagles
150

Total
2500


The tactics I used:
Small unit of archers guard a flank against skirmishers, light cavalry and eagle type units.
Central archers bunker and spears tarpit, then the hammers (SM, PG) go where nessecary, generally the PG support the spears (and have a BSB)
Then the dragon princes and reavers try and get behind enemy lines.

Hi, this list is meant to be fairly competitive but mostly fluffy hence the dragon Mage. Sword masters come in since they are the mage's body guards.

622

Heroes
Dragon Mage
Silver wand
Golden crown of atracazr
400

Special
21 Phoenix guard FC

Warbanner
390

14 sword masters FC

So here it is, my dragon list. I have realised however that maybe the second level would be good on the dragon Mage? Other than that I essentially at people till they are much much smaller (flaming sword helps here) then send the dragons flying up a flank and the dragon princes can go for artillery ASAP and also hunt units like hydras which no-one in my army want to attack.

The phoenix guard are here to be boosted by the BSB and hence they can win most combats and will keep on trucking. SM are just the perfect hammer if a bit flimsy.

I think I may want to try this list with white lions, but since I don't have any and I am not short of high S attacks, I don't think that they would be much better than Phoenix guard.


Any thoughts? :)
