Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everyone i am new to warhammer and need lots of help! I'm really sure that im going to get the HE but need an army that can defeat wood elves. Help is welcomed, just so you know im in a 300 dollar budget and i am looking for a mix of calvary and troops. Thanks for any help.
ok thanks i will keep that in mind
The new battalion boxed set that just came outin the US is 700+ points worth of core and a single rare choice for about $100, not too bad really, might make a decent base for an army.
i agree with basco get the battalion and some white lions. also get some shadow warriors and another unit of archers. if you are playing in a over 2000pt game i would take an archmage, and another normal mage and upgrade both. i would not suggest using swordmasters as they will get torn apart by the wood elves arrows.
Consider taking Reavers, Shadow Warriors and some Eagles, otherwise those pesky fast attack woodies will run rings around your formations
Archers might not be too hot vs. wood-elves. They can already outshoot us. What you need is fast stuff to cover you from fast stuff, then get some heavy-armored units. They have bows (whoopie ) and they can't do SQUAT to armor. Get heavily armored Cav, since it is fast enough to run away and charge at will. Big units are good too, so that you can kill a bunch of the little SOBs on the first round of cc.
The idea to betaing WE is to catch them off gaurd. Wait until they get really close, and keep bragging about you defense. THen when they are just about in charge range, HIT'EM. They get really funny faces then (I thought I was attacking YOU :eek: )
