I need help!!!!!!!!! I don't know if i should use high elves or wood elves? Tell me which one and why is it better than the other. Please give additional information if u want.
Neither are better or worse in general, it depends on how you use them.
HE can have shooting and magic armies, cavalry, or mixed as their main styles.
WE have mostly skirmishing and are good at shooting, but you can use treemen which hit hard in combat.
Look at the models of both armies and determine which ones you like the look of best, and consider playing styles as well as fluff, then pick the one you like best.
Really, hokage, the models are what count (that's what you're paying for, right?). Go with what you think looks best to you. There is enough versatility within both of these armies that you'll have a few different playing styles available to you.
Alright, strewart, get in on this. hokage is playing devil's advocate here and all those PM's are annoying me.
Ranks? High Elves have more of 'em, and they have a special rule that allows their Spearmen to fight in ranks of three (instead of two) and their Archers to fire in ranks of two (instead of one). Wood Elves have more skirmishers. So, High Elves beat them in that department, but ranks aren't everything.
yeah strewart thx for your help Zanz bar after browsing through them i decide Wood Elves is my army
Yeah? Good, you've decided. It's better to pick an army based on your own tastes rather than someone else's anyway.
Zanzibar i founf thi article and says a way to defeat wood elves is doing this with high elves:
anyway how to beat them first of all play something other than pitched battle so he doesnt get a free set of trees try flank attack so you can get some cavalry on has flank. but if you have to play Pitched battle get asmany units in his deploymant zone as you get 100VPs extra if he is using an old army llist but if he is using the new one the lots of cavalry tactic is sound but thats a guess as i havnt played that
You'll find articles on how to beat every army with every other army. Like I said (numerous times) no army is better than any other army! Every army can defeat every army, and that's the truth. That's why I said decide upon the models and tactics, not their respective strength, because it's all relative.
that is why a chose the wood elves because the models look cool and the tactics sound better to me than high elves. So in this strategy can you tell me some ways ot tactics to try to prevent them from using cavalry killing my army
I'd say utilize the tree-folk (Dryads, Tree-kin, and Treemen). Not only are they tough, but they cause Fear. Not much chance of scaring off high leadership folks like the High Elves but that's up to the dice in the end, so there's always a chance.
