Haha kind of takes the elves out of Wood Elves. I don't think your opponets will appreciate it much - and it's really solid, but also beatable. Definitely watch out for Dwarfs fielding two Organ guns and flaming war machines. That would be painful.

Spites are your friend. Cluster of Radiants and Pageant of Shrikes are my personal favourites, although a Murder of Spites makes it in to my armies occasionally.

yeap i agree with Highborn - you could drop some dryads and get some fun spites for your branchwraithes.

i posted this on the other thread but i recommend the following tactic

i find that with the new edition you can pull a clever trick,

step 1: whilst deploying terrain, dut a big hill or a woodjust outside either deployment zone

step 2: choose your side, luckily because you've deployed a wood/hill on either side it dosent matter which side you have

step 3: put your free wood alongside the hill/wood so your make an alleyway

step 4:deploy all your shooting stuff at your end of the alley, use you other troops to cover the flanks and force them down the alley, use treesinging to use your wood ot slow them down , ideally put a treeman in the wood!

6 turns later your pretty much intact and you've munched your enemy

WARNING: dosent work very well on skirmish based armies like beastman

works for me so give it a go

hope this helps

the only slight and teeny problem with that plan is that his whole army can emerge from the woods at anythime due to drycha and a tad more importantly, he has no shooting or elves in his army!!!!
