So, after a bit of a hiatus from the game (I stopped during 7th edition), a friend and I have come back to 8th edition and taken up where we left off.
I was a Wood Elf player, with my friend being an Orcs and Goblins player.
During 7th, I favoured a multiple small units (MSU) approach, fielding pretty much everything in a minimum unit, and dancing around until I'd worn him down a little and was in position to rout a unit with a well-timed multi-charge. My mate had struggled to combat this for a while, but eventually got the hang of keeping me from flanking him, and games because more competitive, although I think I probably still won a bit more than he did.
I suppose at this point I'll mention that my choice of Wood Elves is because I tend to like, in any game I play, using the fast, light selection, that utilises good mobility to their advantage.
Now we find ourselves in 8th edition. Obviously the new edition has not particularly favoured the Wood Elves, and probably even less so with respect to the playstyle I had used in 7th (that being the aforementioned MSU approach). I find myself disappointed that I am essentially unable to play the way I picked the army to play, or if I do, I have to use more bows to bring my opponents units down to lower strength before I am able to get into melee.
I also think I am starting to find the MSU approach a little stale, having played it for a while now. The trouble I have is that I don't really have any interest in playing Wood Elves in a style other than my fleeting MSU style. If I wanted to play a different style, I would have picked a different army.
To that end, I'm looking for a new army. Having done the Wood Elf MSU thing, I'm looking for a new experience. A completely different one.
So I put to the Warseerites, what army is the opposite to a Wood Elf MSU army, and why? I should clarify I'm not looking for novelty builds. This isn't a challenge to create an army with one massive deathstar unit, because 1 unit is the opposite of MSU. I'm more interested in which army, if constructed in a typical way for that army, is going to give me a thoroughly different experience.
All yours, folks.
