Dwarf, High Elf and FOW army lists

Big week for working out army lists with 3 tournaments coming up over the next couple of months and (hopefully) a host of friendly WHFB games as practice - including one tomorrow night. Anyway the lists I have been compiling and will be using/testing over the next couple of months are:

High Elves @ 2400pts - friendly vs. Dwarfs tomorrow night

Archmage
w. Silver Wand, Talisman of Preservation, Pendant of Vengeance, Lore of Life, Level 4
Noble
w. Battle Standard, Great Weapon, Guardian Phoenix, Armour of Caledor
Mage
w. Seerstaff of Saphery, Opal Amulet, Lore of Shadow, Level 2
30 x Spears
w. Full Command, War Banner
29 x Spears
w. Full Command
30 x Phoenix Guard
w. Full Command, Skeinsliver, Banner of Sorcery
6 x Dragon Princes
w. Musician
6 x Dragon Princes
w. Musician
5 x Shadow Warriors
Great Eagle
Great Eagle

TOTAL 2,399

No shooting in this list apart from Shadow Warriors who are really only there to stop any Rangers from deploying to close to the rest of my infantry. 3 big blocks of infantry bolstered by Lore of Life and Shadow should work wonders and fast units will enable me to take out warmachines, at least thats the plan.

2400pts Dwarfs for Karak Eight Peaks Tournament in August

Runelord
w. RO Stone, RO Resistance, MR Balance, RO Spellbreaking, RO Furnance, Shield
Thane
w. Battle Standard, MR Gromil, RO Preservation, Ro Resistance, RO Fire, RO Furnace
30 x Rangers
w. Full Command, Great Weapons
30 x Warriors
w. Full Command, Great Weapons
16 x Quarrellers
w. Musician, Shields
30 x Hammerers
w. Full Command, RO Battle
20 x Miners
w. Full Command
Grudgethrower
w. Engineer, Brace of Pistols, RO Penetrating x2, RO Accuracy
Cannon
w. Engineer, Brace of Pistols, RO Forging, RO Burning
Organ Gun

TOTAL 2,400

Taken onboard Tanes advice, and conversations with him and other Dwarf players at Runefang IV, and have included a Runelord in this list. Opting to protect both characters as well as possible while leaving enough points for other units. Rangers are Warriors rather than Longbeards due to points cost. Miners add a lot of flexibility and overall its a solid combat orientated list.

I plan on getting A LOT of practice in with this list over the next few weeks as a couple of new Orcs & Goblin players have turned up at the club :)

High Elves at 2000pts for Might Empires Campaign Tournament in July

Archmage
w. Silver Wand, Talisman of Preservation, Lore of Life, Level 4
Noble
w. Battle Standard, Great Weapon, Armour of Caledor, Guardian Phoenix
30 x Spears
w. Full Command, War Banner
15 x Archers
w. Musician, Light Armour
24 x Phoenix Guard
w. Full Command, Banner of Sorcery
21 x White Lioins
w. Full Command, Ironcurse Icon, Standard of Discipline
5 x Dragon Princes
w. Musician
Great Eagle

TOTAL 1,998

Not much change here from the list I took to Runefang IV except for reduction in size of core troop component and 6 extra bodies in Phoenix Guard. Standard on White Lions means they are now stubborn on L9 rather than L8 and I can safely deploy them away from the General. We also get there optional 100pt units for this tournament 1 core, 1 special and 1 rare. These are earned with campaign points. Mine will be, due largely to whats available to me:

- 10 Spears w. Musician
- 5 x Shadow Warriors w. Champion
- Repeater Bolt Thrower


LW Fallschirmjager 3rd FJ Division HH for doubles Tournament in July


CHQ
w. 2xPF/SMG, 2xPS, 2xMortar
FJ Platoon
w. PF/SMG, 3 Squads
FJ Platoon
w. PF/SMG, 3 Squads
FJ Mortar Platoon
w. PF/SMG, 2 Sections (4 Mortars)
FJ Heavy Mortar Platoon
w. 2 Sections (4 Mortars)
FJ Anti-Tank Platoon
w. 4 x Pak 40 7.5cm
Ersatz Panzerspah Platoon
w. 1 x Sd Kfz250 & 3 x Sd Kfz 250/9

TOTAL 1,100

Big change here in that I am shifting from the FV Fortress Europe list to the FT Hells Highway as basically I really like the list. Also allows me to field a Recon platoon in the Ersatz and add in some cheap firepower. List gives me 3 Mortar Platoons, 2 with smoke capability and 1 with good AT/FP stats vs. Top Armour so its a definate defensive boost. Considered adding in 3rd FJ Platoon or Pioneers but points restrictions and cost/benefit of taking one vs. the Mortars wasn't worth it. Anyway we'll see how this works out.

Hi John,
In the FJ list should there only be 3 x PaK40? Otherwise the pts is 1135
As for getting a Pionier Plt in the list,the best i could do and keep the heavy mortars is,

HQ+ 2 PF=60
2x PS Teams= 50
1 x GW42 =42
1)FJ Plt full+PF =200
2)FJ Plt 2 Sec + PF =145
3)Mortars 1 sec =65
4)Heavy Mortars full=170
5)A/T Plt 3 x Pak40 =130
6)Pioniers full +PF = 260
TOTAL=1105
But i guess you haven't got much longer before you have to send your lists off?
