Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok ive played 7th edition for a long time and really enjoyed it. I came to the conclusion that Dark Elfs were the best army at this edition due to Hydra's and Shades with Assasins.
Now the new edition has come out and i have played a few games and it seems to me that the latest edition had only buffed the army more.
And so i come to my question how do i take out Hydra's and Shades with assasins whilst managing to deal with the rest of the army e.g 2 bolt throwers, wizards, infantry
Teradons gained vanguard now with the FAQ those can help deal with the bolt throwers that now only have 2 wounds. Second if they take a mage you can use your slann to basically detonate there mage with cupped hands of the old ones(they may hide there ROH bearer if they know you have cupped hands). Salamander hunting packs can now be down right broken now, the new monster rules and the skirmisher rules make this unit deadly especially to tough 3 elves. As for the hydra you have skink skirmishers that can now full move and shoot with blowguns they should be able to drop the hydra with poisoned attacks and with there faq all ranged attacks against the hydra is always hit no chance of randomizing to the crew.
