So, with my dwarf project running nicely along, I decided that it would be the wisest thing to ruin the pay of seventy-three working days, my relationships with other people, and most likely my christmas holidays (and it's still August...) dedicating myself to another Warhammer project. In such a regard:

Lords - 285
Spellweaver (General, Lore of Shadow) - Level 4, Asrai Longbow, Acorn of the Ages @285pts
Heroes - 140
Spellsinger (Lore of Shadows) - Level 2, Dispel Scroll @140pts
Core Units - 630
10x Glade Guard - Hagbane Tips @150pts
10x Glade Guard - Hagbane Tips @150pts
11x Glade Guard - Hagbane Tips @165pts
11x Glade Guard - Hagbane Tips @165pts
Special Units - 945
3x Warhawk Riders @135pts
3x Warhawk Riders @135pts
3x Warhawk Riders @135pts
5x Wild Riders - Shields, Wild Hunter @150pts
5x Wild Riders - Shields, Wild Hunter @150pts
7x Deepwood Rangers - Trueflight Arrows @112pts
8x Deepwood Rangers - Trueflight Arrows @128pts
Rare Units - 460
9x Waywatchers @180pts
9x Waywatchers @180pts
Great Eagle

At 2500 points, smack between the fork.

Stuff:

Acorn of the Ages: It's really ironic that I have to pay some eighty odd bucks for an one hundred point upgrade, while a close-to three hundred point model costs me a sliver over thirty. Games Workshop logic really does baffle me sometimes. I'm yet to figure out a points to money ratio for their products, but when I do, I swear I'm going to disprove some fundamental laws of arithmetic. GW logic or not, forest = good.

Copy and Paste Units: Who could be screwed typing anyway?

Lack of BSB: He has a big flag and while Napoleon Bonaparte did say: "Astounding, the things soldiers would do for a three meter piece of cloth," we wood elves are beyond such blandishments such as leadership values.

No Treemans: He's woody, but has zero charismatic value of the toy cowboy that was 70% of my childhood. Gund enuf?
