Always Strike First
I sincerely hate paying the embedded points cost for this on every single unit. RBT Crewman?! Mages?!? Also, I know elves are supposed to be quick, but ASF is overdoing it; just give us I6-7 on everything and we're good to go! High Elves are supposed to be a defensive force, but ASF removes all need to move whatsoever.
Our mages are supposed to be the best, aside from Slann. Our mages are supposed to have a disciplined and thorough grasp of the winds of magic. As it stands, we are paying waaaay too much for a wizard that rarely preforms on par. I don't want to pay for ASF on my damn scroll caddy.
Silver Helms need to be Core! The only reason you'd take Silvers over DPs is because you need the points, and cavalry lists are supposed to be structured around the cavalry, so you shouldn't need to sacrifice cavalry efficiency for some extra archers. Make Silvers Core, period.
Teclis is, I will admit, one of the best wizard characters in the game. He's our one truly heroic hero, however. Tyrion is a good character, but he's more of a bully; great for taking on units of lesser or almost-equal quality, but not that great at anything of his caliber. Contrast with Archaon, who can wipe the floor with anything in the game, and I do mean anything. I don't want an Archaon in my army list, but I'd sure like something that could take him.
Don't get me started. We own Vaul's fething Forge! We should have customization on par with the Dwarves as far as wargear is concerned. We've got some good ones, like the Star Lance and such, but I would trade all that for something like the rune system the Dwarves have.
All that aside, I love playing with my High Elves (no homo), and I win my fair share of games with our armybook as-is.
