Named Characters[ edit ] Note: Under the current edition, named characters tend to high elf army book 8th overpriced; you can pretty easily emulate most named characters from scratch and save yourself some points.

That said, a few named characters do have abilities and wargear or wargear combos unique to them, so if you need to have them, go ahead.

Just make sure you're really getting your points worth. Tyrion is an expensive close combat beast, and that's what you want him to be.

He loses his magic resistance after use, meaning that last wound is slightly more vulnerable. However, he's high elf army book 8th stuck in the role of the hammer, and at that level of points you can take someone on a Dragon and he can't do TOO much that a tricked out Prince couldn't do just as well for less that dragon can't join a unit though, which makes Tyrion worth considering far more than he was in 7th edition.


High elf army book 8th fun, but competitive lists tend to prefer generic options or the Everqueen. Something of note is that he can join a unit of Silver Helms or Dragon Princes which really ruins someones day in larger games remember that now with Silver Helms being core, your anvil can suddenly drop onto the heads of the enemy rather than just hold them in place in an all cavalry list.

As cavalry he's no longer immune to killing blow so KB units high elf army book 8th as Grave Guard can suddenly wreck his day again.

He's also 10 points dearer. Weiging in at points, he'll eat up a big chunk of your Lords points, but with the changes due to the End Times, you can now field him and the Everqueen in a pt game and hopefully they don't start banging mid-game. One final change to him in this edition: If your strategy is wedge Tyrion in your enemy's ass while a mage hides in a bunker and faps to the scene, you might wanna keep him as a minion but if your whole strategy is to run your enemy down with a wall of equine death he should be the one in charge.

Teclis, high elf army book 8th Loremaster of Hoeth: All those lifeline steroid pills must be getting to him, he got nerfed again.

Not nearly as badly as last time, but he's weaker. He is still a powerful mage because he can either know all spells in High Magic, or have one spell of your choice from each normal Lore. The High elf army book 8th Staff is now a one use item that either lets you add an extra die to each cast attempt from him for a turn OR negate a miscast from him after use Teclis reduces his Strength and Toughness to 1 for the rest of the game, which is pretty funny but bad news.

The scroll he carries is still nice, letting him auto-dispel an enemy non-IF spell as well as having a D6 roll-off against the mage who cast the spell, with a win resulting in them losing that spell for the rest of the game.

Despite his awesome sword, he is still a cripple of an elf with no save to speak of so at least cram him into something that won't see cc and can protect him at the same time not easy.


The War Crown of Saphery, which used to let him dispel a miscast each turn and thus overpower him more than almost high elf army book 8th else in the game, now grants him an additional wizard level making him one of the four Level 5 wizard options in the game. All together Teclis has gone from being mandatory in a "best possible" High Elf list to being an expensive character who's return on his points is questionable.

Still, he's not terrible and is great high elf army book 8th picking spells now that the magic item that used to let you do that is gone from the game. If you are using Storm of Magic rules, Teclis is still the powerhouse he once was and is just as facerollingly unfair as before.

The Everqueen is back people, and she is a Lord level wizard who can choose how many of her four spells are rolled from High Magic, Life Magic, and Light Magic.

Mostly a defensive character, she uses her female status to make her unit protective of her to the point that they are immune to Fear and Terror which is fair play if you high elf army book 8th me and all her units' attacks count as magical.

Also she heals one friendly character within 12" for 1 wound each round during the movement phase, but needs to target anyone else if available before herself since she's nice and all.

It would be really laughable if She also has a nifty little passive called Chaos Bane since her very existence makes Daemons take High elf army book 8th checks so the Everqueen is more or less the God Emperor of Fantasy in all the ways Sigmar isn't which means that during the beginning of her Magic Phase, before you roll for winds, every unit with the Daemonic rule within 12" of her takes D6 hits at strength 4 calculated as per shooting.

Seems nice, but it comes with the drawback that she casts at a -D3 to any spells since Daemons give her a sad. She's got a one use item called the Stave of Avelorn which lets her cast a spell a second time regardless of whether she bummed it up or not.
