The reason you can't find it is because there is none.

And the Glade Riders save is +1 to nothing, ie. they have a 6+ save.

New to Fantasy I assume?

The BRB has all the rules for armour and such, so it isn't often you will find the Armour saves in a unit's profile.

Indeed, saves aren't shown in the unit profiles at all in my experience (unless special rules kick in). Armour comes in Light, Heavy, Shield, Barding, from being Mounted, and {insert other here}. If they don't have anything listed, they have no armour.

yep, things dont automatically come with an armor save in WHFB. crazy elves coming to battle with leaves for armor, eh? dang treehuggers!


but yeah, a healthy read of the BRB, then a re-reading of the book would be a great thing.

That could so easily be applied to a whole range of life lessons...

Along with "it's always in the last place you look", eh? :p

The execptions I was on about were chariot entries. They are the only ones I can think of.

And don't get put off by the lack of saves on wood elves – the best we can get is a 3+ armor save. We're compensated for this a plenty by loose skirmish formations and fast cavalry.

The army is great and has a great internal balance. There are no army builds of super cheese, as the VC, DoC and DE has taken over the spotlight.

But the best thing to do is to head over to asrai.org, and suck in all the knowledge of the WE community. I did so, and I usually massacre my opposition.

I don't have time to post a list in defiance of this comment, but I assure you it can be done.
