Not someone who will turn the game around, but he certainly helps if your strategy is an elfhorde and you didn't bring along Alarielle. See his bio in the fluff section for themed lists, basically he can show up anywhere High Elves are as long as the Phoenix King approves of whatever your army is doing. Plus, the chariot does not have to take a dangerous terrain test when moving through a forest, which is quite huge for a chariot.
Generic Characters[ edit ] Note: While named characters are judged against their generic counterparts, generic characters are examined based on their role in your army. Be sure to give this guy an armor or ward save, or else he will get his ass killed.
Look for the variety of killy options down in the magic weapons. Archmage: A fantastic caster. Access to all 8 Lores, plus High Magic, means he can literally be designed to do whatever you want, though the preferred option in an unclear situation is Lore of Life.
Like with the Prince, he has access to some of the best magic equipment in the game. High Elves are good at magic, and this guy proves it. Loremaster of Hoeth: A new Lord choice and mostly the same as a Swordmaster.
Think about it: the Signature Spells are nowhere near bad ok, most of them are not and you're getting all of them! Three magic missiles, a direct damage spell, two augments and two hexes. Having all of the lore attributes at your fingertips is useful, like casting Spirit Leech to get more power dice from killing someone. He gets to take as much magic gear as the Archmage and Prince does, meaning you pick how you want to use him and kit him out like one or the other.
He's a pretty solid choice, but he costs a metric ton to bring to the table and he's not as good on defense as a level 4 Archmage, so he'll probably only see field in big games. Also, put this guy near a wizards tower whenever you can. It's painfully hilarious. It is also worth noting that under the new rules from End Times, the Loremaster of Hoeth knows all the spells from all 8 lores. Anointed of Asuryan: Yes, you read that right.
The head of the Phoenix Guard is somehow a hero while a generic version of him is a Lord, go figure. Anyway, the Anointed is a Lord choice Phoenix Guard member with magic resistance and option to ride a Phoenix no one else can, other than Caradryan who is his named counterpart.
When he rides a Flamespyre Phoenix it will return from the dead more often and will even ease the burden on the Phoenix in case of shooting since he will absorb a few hits. On foot, he's a better option than the Prince.
In terms of mounts, you take the Anointed if you want one of the Phoenixes I would say go with the Flamespyre and the Prince if you want the Dragons. The main reason you take a Noble is because he can be a BSB or if you're low on points either overall or in the Lord choices in which case, he'll serve. In 8th with Lothern Sea Helms also being an option as a Battle Standard Bearer there are now conceivable lists where you might not take a Noble.
As a nice little bonus for those who are low on points, the armor types Heavy, Dragon, and Lion Cloak are cheaper on a Noble than a Prince. Mage: Unlike the Noble vs. Prince the difference in points between the Mage and Archmage is big that you might want a Mage instead, he can do everything the Archmage can but at level two.
If you're in the mood it's always nice to have a backup Mage with a different lore to deal with situations your Archmage can't. Never a bad idea.
The Dragon is fairly squishy for a Dragon and the model as a whole runs on the pricy side, but the Hero Level Dragon and the sheer power of the Mage on top make up for a lot of that. Flaming Sword of Rhuin is actually worthwhile in this edition and the Mage himself can put out an incredible amount of firepower. Note that you should never ever use the actual amount of dice you need; Figure out how much you need and then take one less, it'll give you more mileage.
Can be a game breaker at lower points, but tends to get irrelevant once it becomes possible to grab a Prince on Star Dragon. Also, beware as they can only take the Lore of Fire.
Handmaiden of the Everqueen: The main Valkyrie in a horde of sites.
You will only play this character with a group of maidens as she gives them and only them Quick to Fire. She's kind of expensive for her stats, so she should only be brought if you've got a big unit of Sisters with her name on it. Can take a Horn of Isha if you take the Everqueen, which you should take anytime you aren't taking the Reaver Bow.
Sea Helm: A new hero for the High elves who allows his unit to, after passing a leadership test, reform directly after they were charged, as long as they didn't Stand and Shoot or Flee that turn.
This means no more easily flanking your units, and taking into account that every High Elf Unit can strike out of 3 rows to the front, this - for measly Points - becomes really important.
He can also be a Battle Standard Bearer if you're taking him anyway and don't want to bother with the Noble. The Sea Helm however has light armor and a shield, that is all. If you're taking a BSB Sea Helm, give him a mundane standard and pump his defenses with his magic item allowance.
But seeing as any special ranked unit aka any unit you want to put him in barr a block of spearmen has a magic standard allowance of at least 50 points banner of the world dragon costs 50 points , this isn't much of a problem.
Mounts[ edit ] Elven Steed: It's a horse, it goes fast and makes them the tiniest bit less killable. Available for Princes, Archmages, Nobles, and Mages.
Since Ithilmar Barding stopped subtracting from movement, you should probably always upgrade to Ithilmar Barding. There's no reason not to pay a few measly points for that.
Eagles are the halfway point between Horses and Monsters and they're quite cheap at 50 points. You can put a Noble with the Reaver Bow on one of these for a fast, shooty unit that is tougher a Great Eagle is your only chance of getting a T4 character and has an extra wound, or an Archmage to get on your opponent's flank and vortex him back to the stone age.
For a better Eagle you have to spend 15 points more, which if you're taking one you probably should. Griffon: Useable by Princes and Nobles. Good news they're cheaper than Sun Dragons points vs , but with upgrades to make the Griffon viable it comes to a grand total of points. The only difference being the Sun Dragon has one more wound It's iffy, but offensive lists requiring a nice hard flank to something that isn't a horde have a need for a well geared Prince on a Griffon. Not to mention that neat Island of Blood mini has just been gathering dust on your shelf Not a good option really, there's potential in that it crunches better than an Eagle for a Reaver Bow war machine hunter, but still iffy.
Still, there's complex strategies that can make great use of them, like 2v2 and scenario games. Sun Dragon: Option for Princes and Archmages.
The mini-Dragon. Still a Dragon, still kick-ass. Good for if you're short on points, since the 70 point upgrade from Sun to a Moon Dragon matters. Moon Dragon: The medium Dragon, same power level as most Dragons in the game. A good all around choice.
It can tear apart almost anything. Giants, K'daii Destroyers, and other dragons will all be killed if faced by a Star Dragon. Beware the I2 though and be aware that everyone and their dog will be gunning for it. Don't let it get bogged down in a head on collision with a large unit; yes it probably can't do any real damage to the Star Dragon, but it'll be stuck there all game and probably get flanked.
Have him charge down small units, flank big units in conjunction with a frontal assault, hunt down enemy monsters. Unless it gets hit by a cannonball, something is going to die when a Star Dragon gets involved. Skycutter of Lothern: Your mount option for the Sea Helm and the Sea Helm alone, but don't take it, because his main power is buffing your troops and he's good at it. Not a terrible choice though if you really want to buzz enemies without worrying too much about terrain checks or being shot at.
Taking a second Sea Helm and putting him on one replaces two crew members, meaning you're only getting the shooting attack of one crewman, and the Sea Helm if you spend the 4 points to give him a bow, or outfit him with a Reaver Bow the only way to really make this a remotely viable option.
If you want a Skycutter, take it as a Rare choice hilariously they're a special choice now, go elves! Flamespyre Phoenix: So finally the High Elves get their coverbeast to play. It's flaming hot, doesn't fear fire and comes with average stats for a Monster.
It lacks the power to really take out a big unit on its own but can take out war machines and kill off survivors. With an Anointed it gets powerful enough to flank units and at least have a chance, so this is how you want to take it. Frostheart Phoenix: Frostheart Phoenixes are great to have, but putting an Anointed on one doesn't really do anything for it besides get him into combat and waste his unit buffing so if you're taking one, take one as a Rare option. Core Units[ edit ] Archers: A good unit overall.
Longbows and high BS give them a good range and a solid ability to damage small lightly armored units don't count on them to do too much to heavy armor. They work really well in 2 or so groups of 10, especially when combined with Repeater Bolt Throwers you should generally concentrate fire. High WS, I, and LD along with Always Strikes First allows them to resist attempts by small units of light cavalry it'll take more than a unit of Mounted Yeomen to deal with these but you shouldn't be counting on them to do combat duties.
Players are split on whether to take Light Armor: On a 10 man unit, taking Light Armor could deny you an 11th model, but if you want to keep your model count low, Light Armor does make them marginally more survivable.
Don't bother with Command beyond Musician. Just a side note, Archers having Longbows is superior in range to Lothern Sea Guard having simple Bows, and this can make a world of difference when trying to outrange certain weapons such as Dark Elf Repeater Crossbows hold that thought until the new Dark Elf codex comes out Spearmen: Spearmen got a definite boost in 8th, with the new rules for Always Strikes First and the rank rules allowing them to strike in 4 Ranks, 3 on the charge.
A common formation for them is 5 ranks of 6 for a total of 30 models, giving you a total of 24 attacks 25 with Champion and 7 wounds required before they start losing attacks for a total of points with Command. Although if you're feeling saucy, you could take a points, 60 man Horde which gets a total of 50 attacks on the front.
Ultimately, there's always room for these fantastic infantry units in your army. The anvil of most "hammer and anvil" strikes for High Elf armies. With 8th, First Among Equals was dropped so now only Spearmen can take a 25 point max magic standard. They cost the same as an Archer upgraded to have Light Armor, but get free Spears to go with it, and can take a shield for an extra point. The only reason that isn't the best thing ever is because they have regular Bows instead of Longbows, and thus have diminished range.
As such they are often derided as overpriced, but they're a solid defensive unit that can pump out a shooting round on par with the archers and do as well as the Spearmen in melee.
With 8th edition, they can no longer take a magic banner as that is now reserved for Spearmen alone. The addition of the Sea Helm to the game has taken away their main weakness however. Before, you had to play it smart to get as many shots as you could in, then reform to take a charge. With the Sea Helm, one easy Leadership check and you're ready to stab the heck out of the enemy in 4 ranks! Just remember that the Sea Helm's reforming rule only works if you elect to hold, losing you a stand and shoot.
In any case, the high price of each Lothern Sea Guardsman makes every single loss taken slightly more costly than if an equivalent Spearmen had bought the farm 3 point difference, so every third LSG you take is one less Spearman. Take and use with discretion. In the previous edition, they were not worth taking due to them soaking up Special options. Now however, you can have a highly mobile force. Here's what you need to know; their stats are the same as Spearmen, but the have a Movement score of 9 compared to the 5 of Spearmen.
Finally, Spearmen are only 9 points and come with a Shield, whereas Silver Helms are a whopping 21 points and spend an extra two for that Shield, bringing them to 23 points total each. Is that worth it? When you want a chaff unit that can take a hit or two, sure. In a pure offensive, speed based list - HELL yes!
A Noble on horseback obviously bearing the Banner of the World Dragon, with your Archmage also on horseback, duh spamming any spell he can think of into the enemy, both these fine elves in a very large unit of Silver Helms that is acting as a fast moving steamroller. Flank the enemy with some Reavers, or skip the foreplay and go right to the reaming with Dragon Princes on a charge. Throw Tyrion into the mix for an army worthy of the High Elf race.
Do note however, that a list that isn't purely offensive probably shouldn't have Silver Helms in it. An Avelorn themed list where the Sisters of Avelorn mop up the enemy isn't half bad could be much better but for the most part keep them as your core in cavalry lists only.
Oh, and Bretonnian players won't stop bitching about Silver Helms until they get an update, so we should be cool with the mon'keigh right around the time of the Horus Heresy sorry, that was mean.
Funny, but mean. Ellyrian Reavers: Also back as Core. The primary role for Ellyrian Reavers in a High Elf army is as chaff to end an opponent's march, then harass casters and warmachines. The fact they in a unit of 5 with no upgrades can do that more durably than a Great Eagle makes them really worth it when you aren't using a horde of Core, and you need your Rare slots for Sisters of Avelorn or Bolt Throwers.
Not really worth it in most lists outside that role, their strength is the Wood Elf tactic of shooting and running.
They can flank too, so if your list uses a massive horde of one Special option as a wall of doom with a Sea Helm shouting orders to them then some Reavers on the sides aren't half bad. Still, the vanilla Reaver only carries Light Armor and a Spear, with all stats but their Movement 9 equal to Spearmen.
They're paying a full 7 points more for that horse, and they don't get a shield for it. If they drop the spears and take bows instead, you spend one extra point per mini so they lose out on the charge. For a full 3 points, they can still shoot and take spears so figure out what you want to use them for, then stick with it. Their champion, the Harbinger, has a higher BS so if you aren't taking bows there's literally no reason to spend the extra points on him. Perhaps the best use of Reavers however is against enemies with NO ranged options.
Nothing sadder than a game where your opponent realizes there's not a damn thing he can do to win because he can't reach your Reavers. Special Units[ edit ] While your Core units are used to create the core ha of your army, this is where you get the guys who do most of the damage.
Don't be afraid to shamelessly spend absurd amounts of points in fact, the full limit you can usually in your special choices. If you need something dead, and you're not in a big enough game to bring a Star Dragon, this is where you look.
Swordmasters of Hoeth: In any literally any other army, they'd be a Blue Chip unit, something to never leave home without. What's not to like? Well you see, in the High Elves book, there are three primary Special options and Swordmasters are slightly the lowest when you crunch survivability and damage.
But, if we're being entirely fair to the unit and taking them on their own terms, they're not all bad and with some strategy or magic AND magic is best of course you can make them into trap versions of Brock Fucking Samson. If you're careful with them, small units of them can make devastating flanking units, with most players taking them as bare 15 man units or 21 man 7-across units. Stick a Lore of Life level 4 Archmage or Alarielle in.
Enjoy your opponent's tears while your T7, regenerating, regrowthing unit pumps out 40 S5 attacks to the front. All it will have cost you is a few power dice to make that happen.
Phoenix Guard: Phoenix Guard are not only the best unit in the High Elf army, they are probably in the top 3 best units of the game, period. Wait that doesn't sound good? Yeah, there you go. These guys can get hit in the face by a cannon ball and just shrug it off, and they've got enough killing power to actually give back.
Be sure to give them a solid bit of static CR, because LD9 does not make them immune to failing their break test BSB works well and will be difficult to kill inside that unit. Either put them in horde formation, or make them very deep to take away steadfast. There is no High Elf army that doesn't have room for these lads other than the full cavalry list.
White Lions of Chrace: White Lions are the middle child, the jack of all trades, the bard if you will of the three Special choice High Elf infantry. Better than Swordmasters due to durability and costing the same amount of points, and deal more damage than Phoenix Guard and two points cheaper.
They are inferior to the respective masters in terms of raw damage, or survivability. They end up truly being the jack of all trades of the three, operating just as well as a defensive ranked unit as an offensive charging unit.
Also with S6 from Great Weapons swinging at I5 due to ASF negating ASL , 3 ranks of them is enough to make most monsters cry send them up against that Giant your opponent is so proud of and watch him cry as they hack out his kneecaps while singing a jolly tune about how they're hacking away his kneecaps.
Take them in big units with the Banner of Eternal Flame and you're ready for anything. They're very good as far as heavy infantry goes, and well worth your time.
If your strategy revolves around Swordmasters or Phoenix Guard, White Lions are worth considering as a secondary choice to flank. Therefore, if your Daemons of Chaos opponent likes Tzeentch and its flaming attacks Warpflame, Anon, not Flaming anymore , take these guys and see him cry. If you're playing a defensive list, they're probably not worth your time, but offensive lists can generally find a place for them.
On the charge there's not much that can hit harder, and while they're no Blood Knights they can certainly keep going in melee. Still, stick with prodding the enemy flank as your goal with them. As of new Army book however they are better shots than archers while only being 3 points more, and get Scouting and Skirmish so they have become useful at War Machine hunting and taking out annoyances like Spirit Hosts. Put a Noble with Shadow Armour and The Reaver Bow in the unit to give them that little extra fire power cheaply or just give the Reaver Bow to a Shadow-walker [the unit champion] to do it even more cheaply.
Throw Alith Anar in with them and you've got Elven Vietcong. Generally speaking, Shadow Warriors still don't have much of a place in your army. Reavers are better at putting the hurt on enemies and getting away, and Special is not the category you really want to put ranged options into.
Tiranoc Chariot: These aren't bad on their own terms but when compared to the other major option for Chariots, which is better in nearly every applicable way other than not having a ranged attack, Tiranoc Chariots get a thumbs down. Still, Tiranoc Chariots aren't bad and if you're in the mood for a cheap chariot 70 points , this is for you. They are very adaptable with longbows, spears, and very good movement. It should be noted that High Elf Chariots are among the most reasonably priced money wise units that GW has, and if you get a Chariot but use it as a White Lion one you get extra horses to put Lords or Heroes on.
Apparently nobody has noticed that you can take these in units of three. Well, you can take these in units of three, so they're not that bad compared to the other chariots in the army. Note that a character on a chariot still can't join a unit of Tiranoc chariots. Tomb Kings can only do it because they have a special rule for that. As with all Chariots, if you're playing defensively they won't help much, but they really work fantastically on the charge. Each one costs points, down 20 points from 7th edition.
Lothern Skycutter: It's a flying Tiranoc chariot with an extra crewman but each one has a bow compared to the longbow of the Tiranoc. The Roc not an Eagle, a Roc hits harder and has an extra attack, and all this comes at only 25 more points than the Chariot. But that's not why you take a Lothern Skycutter. Three words: Flying Bolt Throwers! It's a 25 point upgrade to have one of the crew man it, and it's what you're looking for in this choice.
Unlike the regular Bolt Thrower however, this one is a bit different. For one, there's only one type of fire, a single bolt which has half the range of an ordinary Bolt Thrower with 1 Strength less, same D3 wounds and ignoring armor saves, BUT can be fired whether it moves or not. It's beautiful, isn't it? Consider carefully. Note that if you're gonna take a single Tiranoc Chariot, you might consider an Bolt Thrower-less Skycutter, if you can find 25 points.
Probably worth those points. It does have good range, and it is your only war machine, and now that each one is 30 points cheaper it's a lot less painful setting up a defensive position on your side of the map. It does however depend upon lots of protection to be effective as it is a primary target for magic and shooting, and only has two wounds. They're more resistant to shooting than Eagles and can probably cause more damage long-term.
Not a great unit, but if you're in the mood, they don't generally hurt. Concentrate fire to bring down big things like monsters and characters, volley fire to eliminate enemy chaff and infantry blocks.
Great Eagle: Used to be the only chaff the High Elf army had, but now you've got Reavers and Silver Helms as options in this respect as well. At a mere 50 points 65 after upgrades , it's easy to field a couple eagles in any game higher than These guys are still the champions of war machine hunting, redirecting, and mage hunting, but they die easier than Silver Helms and it's hard to argue with the Reavers having a ranged attack on top of that role so the primary use of the Great Eagle is now to do the same role but save points a group of 5 Reavers without bows would cost 80 points and with bows would cost 95 points, a group of 5 Silver Helms with Shields would cost , and all 3 choices fulfill the same role to different capacities.
With T4 and W3, they're kinda survivable, but don't expect them to survive through the end of the game. The fifth edition, released in , re-introduced the Bretonnian forces, which had been left out of the 4th edition, and re-worked the Slann heavily to create the Lizardmen armies. The Rulebook was also available for separate sale, hard-cover in the first printing and soft-cover after that.
There was also an all-new magic system based on dice rolling. It was available in two forms: as a single hardback rulebook for established gamers and as a complete boxed set game complete with plastic miniatures Dwarfs and Goblins , The Battle for Skull Pass supplement book and a soft-cover rulebook that has less artwork and background material than the hardback version.
The smaller rulebook from the boxed set was approximately half the size of the large book both in size of the cover and page count. The two books had different front pieces and the larger rulebook has two extensive addition sections "The Warhammer World" 68 pages and "The Warhammer Hobby" 56 pages plus slightly expanded appendices.
On Friday 23 July , Games Workshop began posting an "unboxed" series detailing the contents of the new game box called "A Blog of Two Gamers"  The first army to be introduced to 8th edition was Orcs and Goblins.
They are one of the most popular Warhammer Fantasy armies, but their release in 8th edition was not totally expected, as at the time there were four Dwarfs, Wood Elves, Tomb Kings and Bretonnia Warhammer army books which had not been updated since 6th edition.
The Skaven armybook however, still has not been updated since 7th edition. Another one was released, called Blood in the Badlands shortly afterwards it included some special scenarios and introduced rules for siege warfare. In Triumph and Treachery an expansion that allows multi-player games of between 3 and 5 players and Sigmar's Blood a 5 scenario short campaign between Empire and Vampire Counts following the crusade led by Volkmar to destroy Mannfred von Carstein were released.
Another series of five books in , entitled The End Times, saw the appearance of every major character of the setting. The last book Archaon described the end of the Warhammer world. Intended to simulate armies of the real world of the Ancient and Medieval periods.
A science fiction based skirmish wargame using similar rules was developed as Warhammer 40, Rogue Trader by Games Workshop and released in Originally using a minor variation of the 2nd edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle rules, the two games have subsequently taken different development paths. This has since developed into the separate Warhammer 40, setting. The first edition of Blood Bowl uses the same basic turn system and character statistics as Warhammer to simulate a fantasy American football game.
Rules for ranged combat applied to ball throwing. Since the second edition of Blood Bowl the game has taken its own development path. A card game inspired by the game has also been developed. It is set in the destroyed city of Mordheim. It uses the same basic rules as Warhammer, but modified to support activation of individual models in a small gang. It also has a campaign system which you use to improve your warband as they gain experience. The Warhammer Fantasy Battles rules led to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay in , again using the same statistics, although presented as percentiles rather than 1—10 to give more detail and differentiation between characters than is required in a wargame.
In Black Industries released a second edition and Fantasy Flight Games now owns the rights to the 2nd edition game.
