Well wait until the book is released.

Waywatchers, Treekin and Wardancers seem a good way of putting the hurt on the knights, while all the time peppering them with Glade Guard and Scout archer fire. Keep running rings around them and choose your fights. If you get caught in a charge that you didn't want that will end up with the destruction of that unit, don't run in to save it, leave it alone and maneuvre to intercept the Knights once they are finished mauling the unit.

Rout the Peasants as soon as possible, isolate them from the Knights and inflict as much panic tests on them to send them running as soon as possible. With no support the Knights are going to be way too seperated and encircled to do enough to fight you effectively.

Nazguire, etal,
any advice for current WH annual rules would be much appreciated. Game is a friends "tournament" using old rules.
