View Full Version : Wood Elf Highborn Build

I've been looking at various builds for wood elf highborns recently and I quite like this one. Its 5 no armour save shots, a 3+ ward save against mundane attacks, 6+ armour save and M9.

Bow of Loren, Arcane Bodkins, Alter Kindred, Aramanthine Brooch, Light Armour.

I think this is a great harassing and possibly destroying unit, especially against cavalry. 2-3 turns and those pesky knights are gone, if they haven't fled by then. Although he can't be the general, this would be an idea for a Noble general to go with him and some glade/wild riders.

Wood Elf Noble 194pts
Wild Rider Kindred, Great Stag, Light Armour, Spear, Stone of The Crystal Mere.
(Noble and Great Stag have 3+ ward save until it is failed, 5+ AS.)

Am I right in thinking that the Talismanic tattoos would increase ward to 2+ for rider?

ward saves don't combine unless they specificaly say so (e.g MOT) so your only going to get a 3+

not sure your in the right section though

190 as you get the spear and armor free from wild rider kindred

Light armour on the Highborn is pretty pointless, that 6+ will save him from precisely nothing. A Charmed Shield would be good on him.
