Ok, so I'm starting a winter based wood elves army with NO treekin.

Here's the first 500 pts. or so. Tell me what you think.

126 pts - Wood Elf Noble, Longbow, Great Weapon, Light Armor, Hail of Doom Arrow, BriarSheath.

120 pts - 10 Glade Guard.

120 pts - 10 Glade Guard

119 pts - 5 Glade Riders with Musician.

I wanted to start out with a general and some core units. How is it looking? I know its a really small amount of points.

If you're taking Briarsheath, you don't have to pay for light armour.

5 Glade Riders with a musician is 129 points.

I'm worried that this army's not hitty enough. I'd be inclined to substitute Briarsheath and the glade riders for a unit of naked Wild Riders or some wardancers, because the enemy will reach your archers eventually and they will crumble under any sort of offensive.

can't take the wild riders, because they are forest spirits.

i will look at the wardancers though, or some eternal guard. the briarsheat actually can stack with light armor i think.

Try to fit in 5 wardancers at least, so that you can handle close combat. Otherwise it looks like a nice list, good someone has got the idea of winter asrai :)

Ok, redone a bit.... comments?

111 pts - Wood Elf Noble, Longbow, Great Weapon, Light Armor, Hail of Doom Arrow.

120 pts - 10 Glade Guard.

120 pts - 10 Glade Guard

147 pts - 7 Wardancers. Musician and Champion.

Total - 498 pts.

Now you've got a really strong shooting fase and can handle at least one unit in CC. Putting the hail of doom arrow and that shooting fase should be enought to weaken most enemys 'til they reach you.

Thanks! And its only the first 500 pts. I am going to try and build the first 2k in 500 point blocks and then in 250 blocks after that.

In the next 500 pts I'll add a big block of Eternal Guard.
As you know they really are supposed to be The Winter Guard.
But in 500 pts they won't be as effective, cause you need the shooting.
Good luck!
And smart way of making an army. I also should have done it that way..!
*thinks of his unusable armies :angel: *

yeah eternal guard and a spellsinger are for sure in the next half of the first 1k. Probably also some glade riders, and either warhawk riders or a great eagle.

i'm starting to get nervous though, as to how i'll take out things like steamtanks.... and chariots.

Oi. This is tough.
