If you have 200 points more then him, how come you are the underdogs?

As for tactical advice, hide as much as you can behind terrain and in forests and try to get the charge on him, since you have a much easier time moving through terrain.

Try to kill his mage early with some spells or with the warhawks, and then blast his mages as good as you can with your own magic. Be sure to get the charge with your own knights against his, and they will be history.

The Treekin can probably take on some knights, but you might be better off if you use the treekin together with the sauruses against the white lions. They will probably kill 'em.

thanks for the advice.

we are underdogs because he is a really good player and we aren't as good or experienced as he is. anyways he deploys his mage in the white lion unit so it might be hard zapping him. also he flees from most charges against him and if i get too close with the wild riders he will charge me and i will have to take it because they are immune to psyc. i could hide in a corner but doing so gets rid of all the manuverabiliy Wood elves have. i need help

3 Treekin won't stand up to a Knight charge. However, if you take 4 and a BSB nearby they should.

Also GR are one of my weaponsof choice against Knights. Bait, flee, repeat. Altough the opponent may not take the bait.

I think some Waywatchers would be useful for you. Also ignore the White Lions until later on.

Use a combination of Warhawks and GR to take out that mage.
