View Full Version : 400 Point Wood Elf War Band

15-12-2008, 21:47
My LGS is starting a warband league, so I thought I'd get in the action. I'm not sure what armies I'll be versing, but I believe there are 2 skaven players, 1 ogre player, 2 dwarf , 1 vampire, 1 brettonian, 1 demons of chaos.

Branchwraith 90
A pageant of shrikes

Dryads (6) 72
Dryads (5) 60

Glade Guard (10) 126

Great Eagle 50


Would it be better to just separate the glade guard into 2 units of five?

Seeing as you don't really have any hard flanking units the Great eagle is less than useful besides the odd character hunt (weak characters) or CR though it will more than likely give CR, it is better used when you have a good flanking unit.

Drop it and make the branchwraith a L1 wizard , you get an extra DD and can cast treesing (yay) on your free wood (yay), drop the pageant if you do so...then add two more dryads with left over points.

You don't get the free wood in war bands. :(

The eagle was to march block or try to go for war machines, but the extra DD sounds nice. :P
And the pageant was for char hunting. Is it not that useful?

If going for characters the annoyance of netlings gives you the edge in any challange, could keep the eagle too, though I would drop the eagle and *some other stuff* and throw in a 5-6 man unit of wild riders, at thats points value they will do some heavy killing ;).

Shooting is awesome in Warbands, as it is very easy to cause panic tests on enemies. I used to run with glade guard and waywatchers in my 500 point warbands, as well as some dryads for hitting power.

Glade Guard (10) 126
Dryads (7) 84
Wild Riders (6) 188

And that seems like a good enough amount of glade guard to panic 'em.

And it's either wild riders or way watchers. But I think I'm going to run ww cause of the ward save

Pretty fun stuff.

Turns out my league was 500 points. >.> Made a quick wild rider noble list for it and beat my friends skaven, so I'm happy.
