I've been looking at various builds for wood elf highborns recently and I quite like this one. Its 5 no armour save shots, a 3+ ward save against mundane attacks, 6+ armour save and M9.Fantasy Army: BoC
Bow of Loren, Arcane Bodkins, Alter Kindred, Aramanthine Brooch, Light Armour.
I think this is a great harassing and possibly destroying unit, especially against cavalry. 2-3 turns and those pesky knights are gone, if they haven't fled by then. Although he can't be the general, this would be an idea for a Noble general to go with him and some glade/wild riders.
Wood Elf Noble 194pts
Wild Rider Kindred, Great Stag, Light Armour, Spear, Stone of The Crystal Mere.
(Noble and Great Stag have 3+ ward save until it is failed, 5+ AS.)
Am I right in thinking that the Talismanic tattoos would increase ward to 2+ for rider?
