An Article by beast_a_la_mode
Let me preface this article by saying that I have only played 4 games of fantasy in the new edition and they were all with my vampire counts spamming lore of beasts so I literally have no idea what is good outside of simple theory hammer. I had pretty much washed my hand of fantasy but a local guy gave me a deal that I simply couldn't refuse on a high elf army so it looks like I'm back.
Like I said I'm kinda at a loss for what actually works in fantasy but I think this list might be fun and could possibly be competitive.
Great Weapon, Dragon Armor, shield, Banner of the world dragon
Sacred incense, Ironcurse Icon, SIlver Wand
lore of heavens
28x Lothern Seaguard
FC, Banner of eternal Flame
20x Lothern Seaguard
40x White Lions of Chrace
FC, Banner of Sorcery, potion of foolhardiness
Repeater Bolt thrower
Repeater Bolt Thrower
So pretty basic, everyone goes into the Lionstar which is completely immune to magic, has a 3+ armor and 6+ ward vs shooting, are at -1 to hit from shooting. The mage uses the heavens signature spell to further debuff any shooting at the lionstar, Teclis will usually take shadow and spam Purple suns and soulblight. Anyone who challenges in combat will face Caradryan who is pretty tough himself but does D6 wounds with no armor saves against whoever kills him.
Oh yeah, and there's the two Seaguard units for just walking up with field and trying to whittle things down with their bows and then receive the charge, one unit has flaming attacks to try and strip regen for a turn the two bolt throwers try and kill big monsters.
So, suck or not?
