View Full Version : "Blacken the Sky"

So for my 100th post :eek: I thought I'd put my money where my mouth is and give you a WE list I use frequently to rip to shreds. I call it 'Blacken the Sky' and the basic notion is a train-load of WE shooting with small combat units to protect the archer line and glade riders to harrass warmachines and mages, march block and lead frenzied troops around. I frequently use no forest spirits in the list and get waywatchers and sometimes a 3rd unit of wardancers but this is a typical build.

Let me first say a few things though:
1) I will not use Eternal guard or Wild riders in my armies (yes they're useful, I don't like them)
2) I am opined that skirmishing melee units do better with champions
3) I know that 44 archers takes up 880mm of deployment zone
4) I have found I like the redone lore of life
5) The list has performed very well against mortal chaos, O&G, skaven and slaanesh demon legion

tbh glade riders are kinda sucky for shooting
unit champs are a wast of points
so is the banner on the GG
you may want to consider some scouts or waywatchers for march blocking.
