i know we have quite a few thread like this and i apologise for this (and its probably in the wrong forum) but for the next wood elf army book all wood elves armed with bows get the following special rule
arrows of the forest
the wood elf arsenal is so many and varied that they may take several different types of arrows
at the start of the shooting phase the player may elect which arrow the unit is firing, it may not fire different kinds of arrows in the same shooting phase. ot is assumed the unit has enough arrows to last the game unless otherwise stated. the unit may elect to shoot with basic arrows if they wish(wood elf basic arrows are strength 4) .
thick and sharp arrowheads which will shear through plate metal as easy as through bone
shots made with these arrows are strength five and are armour piercing but the range is reduced to 24"
these arrow heads are made light and sharp to increase the distance possible to be shot.
the range of these shots is 60". any shot shot further than thirty inches is reduced to strength 3 with -1 modifier to hit
wild fire bodkins
arrows imbued with the power of the forest. they burn with unearthly fire when a word is spoken by the unit champion
the shots made with these arrows count as flaming and magical
the above arrows may be taken as standard but other arrows my be purchased
volley arrows..........+10 points
when fired these arrows split twice or thrice over and strike the foe with uncanny precision
after rolling to hit the remaining shots are multiplied to D3 roll for each shot separately.
arrows of Ereth Khial.......+15( large template version.....+25 points)
arrows from before the sundering, blessed by the goddess of the underworld when they strike it is as if a great rock has hit the foe
hits from these arrows are resolved as if from a stone thrower with strength 6 a larger template may be used for an extra 10 points this must be decided when choosing army lists.
i mght think of more, what do you think people, should i put points values on the free arrows and make them a choice??? thank you all in advance
