Starting a 2k High Elf army from 2 starter boxes
I decided to hold off my Sons of Caledor concept army and just concentrate on getting a full fledged 2k army done for quick play. The list is not that good but it still looks impressive, with 2 griffons running around the battlefield getting shot by cannons and trying the Thunderstomp units. It uses ALL the High Elf models from the starters and is completed by 2 boxes of Dragon Princes of Caledor.
So with 40 quid, you can have this funny army that’s questionable in its performance, but will look good nonetheless .

Prince on griffon (with Swiftsense), wearing heavy armor, Shield of Mermyrm, Lion Cloak, wielding Ogre Blade and lance = 389 points
BSB Noble on griffon (with Swiftsense), wearing heavy armour, Lion Cloak, shield, wielding Star Lance = 285 points
Mage (Level 2) = 120
Mage (Level 1) = 85
2 x 10 Lothern Sea Guard with champion, standard bearer and musician = 300
2 x 5 Ellyrian Reavers with additional bow, with musician = 210
2 x 10 Swordmasters of Hoeth with champion, standard bearer and musician = 320
2 x 5 Dragon Princes of Caledor = 290
Total: 1999 points. Dang! Still short 1 point. Actually, that Star Lance on the BSB Hero is kinda wash. Probably need to change it for something more tangible (or survivable)
