ok, another alternitive army of mine.
an empire hochland forest patrol list.
an army of hunters, and protectors of the forest.
all in all, a lot of woodelf wannabe archers, skirmishers, fast cav, and some fighting core units, backed up by some reasonable magic, and some supporting heros.

the lord goes off with the huntsmen, and the captainr with some archers.

a maneuverable army, but not to good at combat.

they rely on combined charges to get by, and shooting to hurt a bit, alongside the magic.

the army really need to combine and support each other. 6 pistoliers in the front, 6 in the flank, and 10 archers up your read ashould hopefully break a unit.
some tactics and C&C welcome, as are tactics help...

I suggest that in your 3000pt list you try to find room for an extra level 2 mage,
also cant you only have 5 heros (max 2 lord) in a 3000pt list?
The 2000pt version on the other hnd seems solid enough :)

other than that I really like the idea, if used well it would be really fun to play.
Definately an army i'd enjoy playing with/against

I definitly can appreciate a good well themed army (especially since I have a soft spot for Hochland for some reason). The Engineers don't really fit, I don't know, IMO blackpowder in woodland based armies seems silly, but if you really want them why not give the duelists pistols instead of Throwing Knives, it makes them way more effective with shooting AND combat for only 2 more points a model.

Also, yeah you really need more magic resistance, another Lv2 mage with 2 dispell scrolls would go a long way.

ok, thanks for the feedback

il drop the archer captain, for another lvl2, that will act as offensive, and defensive, and ill drop the halbards down in size to make room for the duellists...

this is if i dont run off and spend all my money on the new forgeworld keeper of secrets...

and dryads...

for a slaanesh daemon army...
:D

TBH blackpower weapons fit perfectly in a hochland army. where do you think a Hochland long rifle comes from?

In the 2k list I would swap the 2x25 free company for a single unit of 25 swordsmen or spear men with a couple of 10 FC detachments, this would be much more effective. Presumably your archers are all detachments?
