View Full Version : What Should I Do next With My Army Wood Elves

29-09-2009, 21:30
Hi, i am looking maybe to add another element to my Wood Elf army that will make it much better.
The models i currently have available to me are as follows:

1 Treeman
5 Wild Riders with command
8 Glade riders with command
24 Dryads
20 Glade Guard with about 5 scouts
3 Tree kin
6 waywatchers
23 eternal guard with command
2 mages
1 noble mounted on elven steed

If you have any ideas of what to add, a good army list i can make, or a good tactic i should try please mention it.

P.S. i play mostly against skaven, lizardmen and warriors of chaos

I think you should add some Wardancers, and also a unit of Warhawk Riders and/or a Great Eagle.
Also running Glade Riders in 8 man units with full command isn't the best of ideas.

Alter Noble (the guy with the bow and the helmet with huge horns works) and Wardancers are the first two things I would add to the mix. A BSB to park in the Eternal Guard and/or next to the Treeman is also a huge benefit.

I'd even consider 2 units of Wardancers, about 8 strong they are pretty badass. A Wardancer Noble model wouldn't be a bad idea if you really start to like these guys (and I think you will!!).

Wardaners are my favorite unit in my Wood Elf army. I liked them form the minute I opened up the book because of their rules, and I really like the models as well (the direct order ones are even nicer). They are extremely fragile of course, but they pack such a punch that most units can't withstand it. Warning though... Warriors can.

Another vote for Wardancers!

I think they are one of the more 'iconic' Warhammer Wood Elf units (something you don't see in other IP's Wood Elves)

I often even run them with a Wardancer Lord and BSB.

Another to go for is a foot character for an Alter Noble, I agree with using the guy with the horns; you can say that's the Helm of the Hunt, and his bow is for firing the Hail of Doom Arrow! He looks pretty crazy.

Add wardancers or dragon. Wardancers are usually the best option of these two but against skaven a flying terror causing monster can be fun ;)

Orion is far from worth his points

In addition I use an alter hero in most of my games and sometimes an eagle but this is optional since units of 5 glade riders with musician can take care of most marchblocking.

i would agree with the WD. i would also get a lord/hero with a GW and a GE. all three of these are great units and the WD look really cool too, imo
