I've got no idea what to include in my army any chance of someone writing me a list.

So far I've got
Prince on Griffon
Prince on a horse
Prince on foot
Mage on horse
Mage on foot

reaper bolt thrower
chariot
dragon riders x 10

40 Seaguard
40 Spearmen
20 Archers

30 Sword Masters

Got no idea about magic items and things, just looking for a list to learn with.

Ok looking at your models i would go with...

Lord on horse with surviving items like 4+ ward and re-roll armour for 55 points, dragon armour, shield and then a weapon of some kind to smash things.

Wizard lvl 1 or 2 on horse with beast magic to get teh basic spell on dragon princes to buff them with strength and toughness. loremasters cloak is nice.

Mage on foot another lvl 2 with life seerstaff and flesh to stone and regrowth (gives +2T and D3+1 models back)

prince on foot as a bsb if you can, if not then maybe the 3 x shot bow and put him in seaguard.

units of 20 seaguard one with flaming banner
2 x 10 archers

bolt thrower

lion chariot over a tiranoc chariot if you have it.

split the swordmasters into 2 or 3 units, add banners as you see fit.

dragon princes with some sort of banner to make them better.

banners to fit in are banner of sorcery, allows a good magic phase for you, razor standard, swiftness banner is also good.

Not sure on the points but you need to use the dp adn chariot to smash with if you can buff teh DP's with beasts and life they gain +1S and +3T in total so become hard to shift.

If you have a bsb on horse i would be tempted to put that in the dp too to allow for the mage to hide in the rear rank.

Also got some shadow warriors, is it worth putting them in somewhere?

Cheers for the help so far. Fantasy is confusing.

Just learn the game first and worry about your army list later :mrgreen:

You've got loads of options and can make a few decent builds, some defensive and some more attack minded. I've been playing High Elves for over 20 years, you're more than welcome to pick my brains (such as they are ;) ) down at the club over a coffee.

At 2400pts (as per OW) you could have:

Lvl 4 Archmage: There are a few different combo's of items you could use. The Seerwand of Saphrey lets you choose your spells, I normally reserve this for a lvl 2 mage. The Silverwand at 10pts gives you access to an extra spell, meaning you're more or less guaranteed to get the spells you want. The Annulian Crystal is also useful, although you can only have one Arcane item. I might be tempted to go for Silverwand, the talisman that gives you a 4+ ward (I think it's destiny) and the Ring of Ruby Ruin, comes to 340pts and leaves 20pts spare on your magic item slot. I tend to use Lore of Life on this Mage.

Prince: Gives the army access to Ld10 (not to be sniffed at) Armour of Caledor 2+ save, Vambraces of defence (re-roll failed saves plus 4+ ward) and Greatsword (for +2 Strength) = 242pts.

BSB: Dragon Armour, Greatsword, Banner of the World Dragon, makes Mage & unit immune to the effects of magic. = 184pts

Noble: Armour of Protection (5+ save 4+ Ward) and Greatsword = 143pts

Mage lvl 2: Annulian Crystal (nicks one power dice off your opponent & gives you a dispel dice) 175pts or Seerstaff of Saphrey (choose spells) = 165pts. I usually go gor High Magic here.

Core: 2 x 10 Archers = 220pts

Personally I prefer Spearmen to Sea Guard as you're paying an extra 4pts per model for a bow.
Core: 38 Spearmen with Full command & War Banner = 387pts

Special: Swordmasters, I normally run with 2 units of 15 with Full command, one unit with Banner of Sorcery (+D3 power dice) the other with Razor Banner (-1 to enemy save). 305pts & 295pts respectively

You can also give the Bladelords (unit champions Magic items if you wish, e.g. Talisman of light makes all the attacks of the bearer and unit magical)

You're left with 109pts, so enough to buy a Repeater bolt Thrower at 100 if you wish.

Prince goes with Swordmasters with Razor Banner
Noble goes in second unit of Swordmasters.
BSB & Archmage go in large unit of Spearmen that sits behind your main units casting Lore of Life Spells.
Mage goes where ever you think you need him.

My advice is pick the models you want and work from there, your army will evolve as you play more games.

Archmage and BSB would go in the same unit (prevents the Archmage from being killed by spells such as Dwellers) Against armies with a lot of shooting they'd go in Seaguard, otherwise in the Archers. They'd sit slightly behind the army. the mage casting + toughness on the Swordmasters and healing them back. Use the Dragon Princes to flank.

Deploy the other mage either with the rest or if your opponent has a Steam Tank or some Knights opposite them to hit it with some metal damage magic.
