I'm really struggling against a mate's WOC army. He usually takes a sorcerer, 2 big units of warriors with an exhalted hero in each and a 10 man unit of chaos knights. Here's my latest go at an army designed to take this down. PLease let me know what you think.

Archmage
Lvl 4, folariath's robe, talisman of protection, silver wand
Lore of Life

Mage
Annulian Crystal
Lore of Life

Mage
Lvl 2
Lore of Metal

Korhil

40 Lothern Sea Guard w/ shields and cmd

20 Phoenix Guard w/ cmd and banner of sorcery

10 Dragon Princes


that comes to 1990 pts. By taking an archmage with silver wand and another mage i'm guaranteed dwellers, which will be good for taking out his big blocks of warriors. other life spells are to buff the sea and phoenix guard. pretty much just took metal for searing doom, although glittering robe or the hounds one would also be nice.
Basic plan is to let him come to me, receive charge with sea guard for a nice ranked up attack, phoenix guard can either flank attack the unit that charges the sea guard or take on the other unit. DP either lurk around for a flank/rear charge or go hunting the knights.
Thoughts???

Korhil sucks. He REALLY isnt worth it. He is t3 with a 4+ save, means an exalted will just eat him and get an eye of the gods roll. I would think Massed blocks of spearmen would be best, for the 4 ranks of attacks. Phoenix guard are good for survivability, but they wont kill much. You need something to flank the unit they are holding up, like white Lions. To lores of life might be a bit much, I would deffinitly say make the level 2 metal, and just take searing doom and whatever else you roll, to really mess up his day

What Sybarite said, in both posts. Though I'd drop the Noble for another Mage with Lore of Metal. Every spell there targets WoC's anus.

If you have the models, try running 5 Bolt Throwers with a Level 4 (Metal) and Level 2 (High Magic, Silver Wand - you want Arrow Attraction). Laugh as he tries to get anywhere near you and fails.

This!

My warriors get murdered by sword masters and phoenix guard with life irrestistables on them.

Disgusting. Metal is even worse, just be careful not to specialise your list too much, as against my ogres and empire - metal does bugger all!

hmmm, might give that alternate one a try, although will have to take the banner of sorcery off the lothern sea guard. jewel of dusk and channeling staff are both arcane items, so not allowed both yes? and same for the seerstaff and silver wand? is there are particular advantage to taking High Magic on the archmage and metal on the lvl 2 for versing chaos? (only needing a 3 for drain magic and shield of saphery does appeal, but i cant help but think it would be better to swap these)

Picking your lore you should probably go lore of life on the lvl 4 and metal on the lvl 2. Currently the lores in the BRB are better than any older ones. Plus am i right in saying that all HE mages come with drain magic regardless anyway?

Yeah, thats right- you have to have the high lore to get drain magic... this is different to DE where they get power of the darkness (or whatever its called) regardless.
