Played 3 battles over weekend, orcs, ogres and empire. The Asf rerolling to hit is just stupid, even if you fail a fear test you still have a 55.5% chance of hitting. Spearmen have a 75% chance of hitting WS 4, and WS 5 or above hit most things over 91%.
They have completely overpowered the HE.
The re-rolls has definately made the Elf Spearmen fairly nasty. They are still only Str3 though so shouldn't be causing to much pain to toughness 4 opponents. They also have the problem of not beng able to get through armour. Any opponent with a Decent save and high Toughness, Dwarves, Chaos Warriors, Knights, Trolls should be able to weather the storm of hits. Then cause alot of damage in return.
Plus with the Step up rule those Expensive Highelves will be taking alot more casualties. Toughness 3 and a low save is not likely to survive attention.
Other than that, don't attack an Elven Spear Block in the front. Go for the Flanks.
