    Crappy matchup for khorne.

    The mobility and LD of WE will allow them to fully control the battlefield.

    Wood Elves will dominate here. There will be all manner of flank charges and baiting going on here. Of course there is the highborn with arcane bodkins...

    Okay, here goes.

    Just look at that lovely hill! Making things better, my free wood will be placed to bottleneck his advance between the existing woods and the ruin. The terrain along with my free wood will work to my advantage as my skirmishers can dart back and forth threw them and only allow some of units through at a time. Scouts will deploy in the ruins if possible or the far woods. The scouting noble will use his HoDA early to hopefully eliminate a spawn or some fast cav. Marchblocking early with them will help a lot, too.

    Shooters will deploy back, probably about 8.5-9" to allow for an extra round of shooting and in two ranks to fit the most I can on the hill. The first rounds of shooting will deal with the distracting units, per my usual strategy. First, I'll target the Marauders and second the Warhounds.

    One trick I like to use against these sorts of armies is when hounds and fast cav are used to screen the frenzied knights. I'll kill all but one or two of the hounds, move to the next unit and kill all but one or two so that the knights remain blocked from charging. That buys me another round of maneuvering.

    The Highborn will target the unit of chosen knights. I assume they escort the lord. First off, they are worth more than the regular knights, and second, there are fewer of them. That means I can kill them more quickly with the bodkins and get more points, exposing the general. If I get lucky, one good round of bodkins on the general (needing 6's to wound--not easy but not impossible) will drop him.

    The Eagle and Glade Riders will lead frenzied units in awkward directions whenever possible. The archers will serve as bait, also--they've always been expendable in the end. By the time they need to flee and escape/be run down, they should have caused enough damage with their shooting to allow me to hit flanks and get tandem charges on the knights.

    I should be able to kill off enough of the army, claim quarters, and perhaps slay the general that I can pull out a victory.

    Also, I always attempt to preserve points by sheletering my characters. The general represents almost 300 vps that I rarely lose, and in this game, there's no reason for him to join a combat. The spellsinger usually survives, too. Keeping points intact will deny him VPs.

    Posting before tactics, I see?

    Well, as we all know my main tactic of run up and charge, that's not worth to be said.

    My sheer ammount of DD will take out any of his magic, with ease. My knights, upon making any contact with his panzy elves, will utterly crush them in combat. My lord and his unit will run through anything on the board, most likely, and just keep hitting home until there is nothing left. The rest of my army will try and out maneuver the panzies and try to grab a flank where ever one possibly opens up, to try and break his whole line. The spawn and Marauders will make it their priority to hit his archers, and break them, and the Hounds will tie up any shooting that comes at my knights.

    Really, there isn't much to say when it comes to this army, as it is a little self explanitory.

    I'm back.

    frenzy seems like the decider in this game and like the other's i am going to have to vote for Wood Elves.

    Baiting and failed charges will be play a large part in this game and with the bottleneck between the two original forests i cant see Khorne lasting too long.

    Hmm, with the first turn im going to have to go against the flow here somewhat. The Khorne can be redirected easily etc, but i cant honestly see the Elves claiming much in terms of Vpts from Kills. Whereas even one Knight, if Flanked, can dish out some pain. Then there are the Chaos support units to consider, they will be able to hassle the WE nicely. Victory to Chaos.

    I'm gonna go with Wood Elves. As long as the elves move properly they'll run circles around the knights, march blocking them and goading them into charges.

    When it comes time for the woodelves to charge in the Khorne chaps can't flee, so once again the manauverability is with the wooded ones.

    Shooting will do more damage than you think against this army due to the march blocking that will be doing on too.
