High Elves @ 2400pts - War of the Beard Game 8

Game 8 of my ongoing series of battles against clubmate and fellow Dwarf player Adam at the club tonight. 2400pts of pointy v. stumpy goodness. As usual I am expecting Adam to bring a colourful and rather creative list to the table. For this latest battle the Elven forces of Elandarana, their outpost on the shores of the Old World, have prepared the following order of battle.

Elbereth Arnatuilë - Archmage of the 7th House & Daughter of Death
w. Silver Wand, Talisman of Preservation, Lore of Death, Level 4

Findecáno Amandil - Archmage of the 6th House & Servant of Life
w. Guardian Phoenix, Lore of Life, Level 4

Tuor Melwasúl - Noble of the House of Telperiën & Elandarana Battle Standard Bearer
w. Armour of Caledor, Talisman of Protection, Gem of Courage, GW

Haldamir Vanimedlë - Noble of the House of Helyanwë
w. Armour of Silvered Steel, Ironcurse Icon, GW

1st Among Equals Spears x35
w. Full Command, Gleaming Pennant

Archers x14
w. Musician

Archers x10
w. Musician

Phoenix Guard x28
w. Full Command, Banner of Sorcery

Dragon Princes x5
w. Musician

Ellyrian Reavers x5
w. Musician, Bows, Spears

Great Eagle

Great Eagle

TOTAL 2,397pts

Very different list for me in that I am running more characters than usual, I typically stick to 2 in most games under 3000pts. There is also less killing power on the table in terms of infantry with the White Lions being left out in favour of the 2nd Archmage. The Reavers make an appearance along with the Eagles to go after the Dwarven warmachines and as I plan on painting them next so felt like using them.

Battle Report up over the next few days after we play it of course :)
