I play a Cult of Ulric army and I am having problems defeating my friend's High Elf army. Basically every game is the same. He sits back and hammers me with bolt throwers, archers, and magic. Then when my mangled army get close to his he cuts me up with his knights / chariots. If I was playing a "standard" Empire army I could take cannons / mortars to counteract his war machines but I dont have anything like that. Does anyone out there have any ideas for taking out these threats. I guess the worst part to deal with is the bolt throwers he's a proverbial bolt thrower sniper! haha. Thanks in advance.
Huntsmen, maybe? They act as Scouts and could sneak up behind the opponent's warmachines.
That's a good idea. I was also toying with the idea of taking a kislev contingent so that i could in a unit or two of horse archers. Any thoughts on that idea? Im not exactly sure if it's fluffy but i dont see why it wouldnt be.
Maybe. I don't see why it would be 'cheesy,' or unfluffy, - nothing wrong with making your army unique!
yust out of interest what would you use the horse archers for exactly?
how are you going to use them?

Exiled until 5thED redo...
I would probably use them to draw out tough infantry units, try to take out war machines, and generally just harass enemy units without getting bogged down in CC.
i didnt do it it was him 'onest boss
no pistoliers in a CoU army, i wish there were though! haha
Take a big strong unit of Greatswords and march towards him hiding behind some Free Companies. I dunno, it might work.....
No Free Companies, no Greatswords in CoU.
Though, one could execute precisely that tactic with a unit of Inner Circle Teutogen Guard and a unit of Warriors of Ulric.
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
