This is the first game in a league I'm in, and I decided to take wood elves.

The mission was one where you had to hold a bridge in the center of the board which wood elves are bad at and vampire counts are good at... but hey, I'm a sucker for punishment ;)

Nice battle report.

I've had a hard time against a few veteran players playing WE with my VC. Played against a CC focused WE last week that was lead by anti-magic character slots, certainly gave me a run for my money.

One player came second over all playing comp'ed WE in the last major tournament outing I went too, so they still have their moments.

nice, i like it!

i play wood elves, this gives me confidence in my woodies again!

i wish i had a dragon though like you.

no treemen? yes it screams shoot me, but it would have been great to hold the bridge . . .

also, do you have success with the warhawk riders? i find them to be over priced glade riders, unless you have a particle role for them, such as hit-n-run, but that is too specific and does not come up often enough to justify their cost i find.

Sad-

All sorts of wrong. Next time your wood elves will not be so lucky

You should have taken the 2 troll hordes... :P

Ha! Unless they were just tied up with the hexwraiths a troll horde would have been devestating here.

That big unit of zombies would have just vapourized...

nice rep as usual, mal, and hopefully your opp learned something about playing to his strengths...... You really shouldn't have been able to win this scenario (or at least had a much harder time)

Nice start for the forces of order though, looking forward to more campaigneering in the future :)

I'm sure you could have drawn them into flank charging your troll horde to save the zombies... :P
