High Elves & Dwarfs & 2400pts

Been working on list ideas for my High Elves & Dwarfs with a look ahead to Skitterleap in October, my last tournament of the year before cricket season starts.

High Elves @ 2400pts

Archmage Lvl 4
w. Book of Ashur, Talisman of Endurance, Lore of Shadow
Noble
w. Armour of Caledor, Dawnstone, GW
Noble
w. Barded Steed, BSB, Halberd, Helm of Fortune, Guardian Phoenix, Shield, Dragon Armour
Mage Lvl 2
w. Dispel Scroll, Opal Amulet, Lore of Shadow
Spears x20
w. FC, Banner of Eternal Flame
Spears x20
w. FC
Archers x15
w. Musician, Light Armour
Phoenix Guard x19
w. FC, War Banner
Swordmasters x18
w. FC, Ironcurse Icon, Standard of Balance
Dragon Princes x6
w. FC, Banner of Ellyrion

TOTAL 2,396pts Characters 36% Core 25% Special 39%

Unusual list in that the 600pt minimum core req' effectively removes a special unit choice, in this case my White Lions. Also dropped the standard RBT's in favour of bigger block of Swordmasters and a 2nd combat character. Set up of mages gives me all 6 principle Lore of Shadow spells. Phoenix Guard with War Banner rather than Razor Standard as their job as always is to "not die".

Dwarfs @ 2400pts

Lord
w. Shieldbearers, GW, RO Resistance, MR Spite, RO Furnace, MR Kragg Grimm, RO Snorri, RO Burning
Thane
w. BSB, RO Cleaving, MR Gromil, RO Resistance, RO Furnace
Runesmith
w. GW, Shield, RO Stone, RO Spellbreaking x2, RO Furnace
Warriors x20
w. FC, GW
Warriors x20
w. FC, GW
Quarrellers x12
w. Musician, Shields
Thunderers x14
w. Musician, Shields
Hammerers x21
w. FC, MR Grungi
Miners x20
w. FC
Cannon
w. Engineer, Brace of Pistols, RO Forging, RO Burning
Grudge Thrower
w. Engineer, Brace of Pistols, RO Accuracy, RO Burning
Organ Gun

TOTAL 2,393pts Characters 25%, Core 34%, Special 36%, Rare 5%

4 big blocks of infantry all T4, all with GW striking at S5 or S6 (for Hammerers). Strong shooting phase with 26 shots at S4, 14 of which are AP and super accurate Cannon & Grudge Thrower both with flaming attacks and the dependable Organ Gun.

The Miners act as a 3rd GW carrying combat unit but with the flexibility of being deployed as tunnellers, for a unit cost only 20pts higher than 20 Warriors.
