I have about 30 assembled glade guard. That was always enough for my games.. Now to assemble the other 70 I have still on their sprue's... hahaha

Warhawks looks to indeed be our monstrous cav equivalent. Same stats as eagles now with killing blow to boot. Need to buy a third warhawk. Only got 2 to use as eagles when my store sold out of actual eagles. Makes me sad at myself that I've been collecting wood elves for almsot 20 years and I have maybe 4% of my army painted :( this edition probably won't help... I see lots of unpainted rangers and stags in my future

So far I am 100% set on having a unit of Wild Riders as my scalpel. I don't know if they have any synergy with Waywatchers, but I'd also look to be taking a couple of units of them.

The rest is more open - Glade Guard? All skirmishers? Treemen? So many choices gah!

Looks like I'm going to have to have an Orion army aswell. THough I've been wanting to do that anyway after reading the books.

So I'm no great tactician when it comes to Warhammer, but I'm assuming an army that's comprised entirely of archers is not, one would say, a viable tactic?

(I couldn't help myself - the potential for 122 shots in one turn was too tempting)

(In all seriousness though I'm writing up a proper swiss army knife / toolbox list, because nobody likes cheese).

Ok so an actual 2500 list:



Lords
Spellweaver –
Level 4 Wizard
Acorns of the Ages
Elven Steed

Heroes
Spellsinger – 150pts
Level 2 Wizard
Elven Steed
Dispel Scroll

Core Units
10 Glade Guard –
Musician
Hagbane Tips

10 Glade Guard –
Musician
Hagbane Tips

10 Dryads –

5 Glade Riders -
Musician
Hagbane Tips

5 Glade Riders -
Musician
Hagbane Tips

Special Units
10 Wardancers –
Bladesinger
Musician
5 Asrai Spears

8 Sisters of the Thorn –
Musician
Standard Bearer
Lichbone Pendant

10 Wild Riders –
Wild Hunter
Musician
Standard Bearer

Rare Units
10 Waywatchers –

10 Waywatchers –

Treeman –
Strangleroots

2493

The idea is for the Spellweaver and Singer to pal up with the Sisters of the Thorn and gallop around buffing / debuffing / throwing javelins at people / staying out of trouble. The Dyrads and Treeman are there to chaff it up / body block anyone trying to get at the Glade Guard and Waywatchers, who will be busy sat in the forests generated by the Acorns of Ages, shooting away at the enemy. The Wardancers are the swiss army knife - ready to jump in where needs be. The Glade Riders offer some redirect / handy Warmachine hunting, and the Wild Riders are the tip of the spear, designed to slam into whatever needs killed, and doing just that!

I like it. Very effective. I've not managed to write a list yet, too much good stuff I just want it all! The more I look at him though the more I'm convinced I'm going to have Orion like 99% of the time. So sexy.

That said I'm still trying to figure out my Ecthelion character build. He will be my 1%

Unfortunately it Dosent look like it. Seems the people who were using welfs before the new book have moved onto another army because they don't like the new book. However there has been an influx of new welf players.
