So I think I'm going to get into Fantasy (other than crossing my daemons over from 40k) with High Elves.

I was look at HE mostly b/c I like the dragon model, and the clean colors, so my starter list at 1250 might be:

Dragonmage with some items

2 units of 12 Lothern Seaguard

2 Lion Chariots

2 RBT

I guess over time I'd work it up to a star-dragon list, but these all seem like good choices, and no wasted money (i.e. all usable at higher points).

I have heard good/bad things about Seaguard. I think it mainly stems from the price and the horrible shooting that are S3 bows. I guess at low point value games having a unit that can shoot and/or hold your line is good.

I have been taking minimal units of archers to fill my core, so I can take shinny things, and dragon princes are normally a nice hard hitting compliment to the dragons.

I'm always careful not to make a mage my general, especially one mounted on a dragon. The list is strong, but with no elite troops, they won't hold up in a prolonged fight. If your going to use the seaguard, I would reccommend a Noble with a Reaver Bow in the unit for extra punch. I would then bring an extra mage, maybe drop a Charoit and pick up an elite troop type (Phoenix Guard are my personal favorite)

In 1250 thou having a model moving 20 inches that is str 5 is a great thing. Remember this isn't 2000 points and up were every army can take a dragon high elves are the only ones that can. The dragon is a great idea. What i would do Mike if your set on this list is always combo charge with your chariots and dragon never send them in alone.

Ask Lincoln a dragon by his self sometimes isn't enough. Thou the use of some elite troops couldn't hurt you.

I've built this list out to 2250, and played with it to some success, I've just not played any fantasy in a long ass time.

Remember at 1250 you only need 1 core with High Elves. Try this -

Dragon Mage (2#, 430 pts)
1 Folariath's Robe - MAKES HIM ETHEREAL - nobody is going to shoot him off the dragon - still a lot of points for 1250 into a single character. You could do something different. - let me know if you want suggestions, i know you like the idea of playing with a dragon.

Dragon Princes (5#, 190 pts)
5 Dragon Princes of Caledor)
1 War Banner

Lion Chariot of Chrace (5#, 140 pts)
1 Lion Chariot of Chrace @ 140 pts (Chariot)

Archers (10#, 110 pts)
10 Archers @ 110 pts (Hand Weapon; Longbow)

Repeater Bolt Thrower (3#, 100 pts)

Repeater Bolt Thrower (3#, 100 pts)

Phoenix Guard (11#, 177 pts)
11 Phoenix Guard @ 177 pts (Standard Bearer Std; Hand Weapon; Halberd; Heavy Armour; Causes Fear)

Total Roster Cost: 1247

On a completely side note Mike how did you like your movie you know the one with the large blue people. Did you find it offensive or just my spelling?

I like the Siver Wand and Ring of Fury for my Dragon Mage. Power Stone and Guardian Phoenix are good too...

Ring of Fury is the bound item of was referring too. Siliver wand would be good also. Guaranteed to get spells 4 and 1. (that's what i'd take anyway)

Yeah, with the Silver Wand added, you'll be using 3 spells, and with the reckless rule, you get a free power dice for each spell...pretty nasty.
