2400 Point – High Elves Heavens List

I have always liked the Heavens lore, but generally steered clear of it for Shadow.Well, we have a new book now and I thought that it could be fun to write up a 2400 point list using it. It is a fairly character-light list to get more troops on the table.

Lord

Archmage, Level 4 (Heavens), Book of Hoeth, Khaine’s Ring of Fury

Well, here is general of the army and what has determined the rest of the build. I initially gave him the 4+ Ward, but thought that it might be just as good to drop it and put him in with the Banner of the World Dragon. The spells that I am hoping for here are the augments/hexes, although Comet is still nice. Harmonic Convergence can give the White Lions some re-rolls, which should make them a little more deadly in combat. Otherwise Curse of the Midnight Wind and/or Iceshard Blizzard should help in the combats, too.

Hero

Noble (BSB), Sword of Might, Shield of the Merwyrm, Golden Crown of Atrazar, Ironcurse Icon, Dragon Armour

The BSB comes in with Strength 5, and a 4+ Parry save. The Dragon Armour gives him the 2+ vs Fire, and a 6+ Ward save, with the Crown giving him a 2+ Ward vs the first wound. He is mainly build for survivability. I could have gone with the Armour of Caledor, but I thought the 4+ Parry would be better, since the most risk will be encountered during combat.

Core

28 Spearmen, Full Command

This unit is mainly to provide ranks and hold up enemy. Spears are only effective against low Toughness and lightly armoured troops, which I rarely end up against.

15 Archers, Musician

15 Archers, Musician

Now that the archers can fire in 3 ranks, they have been expanded to 15 per unit. They are mainly to pick off enemy redirectors (and to fill out the core). I thought about dropping a unit of archers to fill out the spears to 46. I’m not sure which way to go. I don’t think that the 28 spears will hold stuff up for too long.

Special

29 White Lions, Full Command, Banner of the World Dragon

29 White Lions, Full Command, Banner of Eternal Flame

Here is the main combat power of the army. White Lions no longer get their re-rolls, but hopefully with the augments/buffs from Heavens, it can help to counter that. Banner of the World Dragon keeps them safe from magic.

Rare

Eagle Claw Bolt Thrower

Eagle Claw Bolt Thrower

The bolt throwers provide some ranged support for the combat blocks. I love how versatile they are, too with the single shot or the 6 bolts.

Great Eagle

Great Eagle

The eagles will be used for redirecting and holding stuff up.

Flamespyre Phoenix

I know that many people love the Frostheart, but for me, Phoenixes are supposed to be fire. Ideally, the phoenix can help to thin out some hordes before they get to my lines, or do some war machine hunting, if he needs to. Sure, they will be shooting at it, but hopefully the ward save can keep it alive.
