Welcome to Librarium Online!
Dunno how much I can trust these, seem kinda overpower on some points. Like the arrows causing panic :/
lite mer eller minder tillfĂ¶rliterliga ryckten:
"have just got new info about the new Wood Elves.
irst of... new magic lore...
still has tree singing but this is free kind of like drain magic for high elves..
then they have a magic bow spell that is just a magic missile D6 st 4 armour peiring attacks
a summoning dryads spell cast on a chosen level summon X many dryads within 12 inches.. absolutely awesome stuff
misguide can effectivley "teleport" unis from one wood to another...
cant really remember the others only vaguely..
oh assault of stone is back.. 13+ to cast and you can drop a hill on an enemy (i can beleive they brought this spell back but i cant complain ill be playing them XP ) every model in the unit takes an iniative test or are crushed
the new treeman hero has regeneration and 7 wounds.. OMG this guy is hardcore at 456 pts better be worth it
heroes and lords can take a thrown weapon (glaives) for 10 pts a hero or 15 a lord and does +1 s and is armour peircing 8 inch range
the new glade riders models are riding on wolves which is cool but will probably cause problems with the blizzard team's copyright.. not sure... but THEY ARE SOME DAMN FINE MODELS undead will want to use these suckers as direwolves
a new magic banner allows units to cast treesing powerlevel 3.. handy stuff for a meek 30pts
the new glaive launcher is incredible, I never thought i'd see the day woodelves got a warmachine but hey, they have changed alot with the newer incarnation especially that they leave the woods regularly for HUNTS. this baby does D6 str 5 hits on a unit within 24" the on a 4+ hits another unit within 6" of the original target and within range for another D6 attacks at St 4, then on a 5+ hits another unit at D6 st 3 hits then carries on again on a D6 for D6 str 2 hits... i hope theese are hittin knoblars cause they wont kill much but hey who knows your luck..
the new dryad missile aspect is weak but handy if you are looking for options inbetween walking around the table and combat.. though they only get a thrown weapon attack at St 3 range 12" bs 2... but hey option are options...
as well as magical banners in the arm,y there are magic horns which can only be given to a "tune keeper" in a wardancer unit..
handy abilities in all especially frenzy. wooo woooo u cant stop the train
warhawk riders will now work sort of like pegasus knights with 3 wounds each and the option to take a lance instead of a long bow making them str 6 due to the combined stat line
the army as a whole can take a bow upgrade called "arrows of the willow whistle" for 1 pt per bow armed model and cause panic test in any unit suffering casualties from it on a 4+
1 unit of glade gaurd can be promoted to a special choice with the option to take heavy armour as well as replace their weapons with a great weapon. the unit gains killing blow and some new rule called eternal hatred.. great stuff this is the most unique unit i've ever seen
the new dragon can take armour of life for 50 pts and gains regeneration... this is to much for me.. but hey cant complain

Right now, I'd say anything in that post is probably not very accurate. While some of it may have some remnance of how the army will be, none of it seems inline of how most codexes and armies are, nor does much of it seemed very balanced.
EDIT: Proof: That 13+ to cast hill dropping spell. GW would have had to completely lost it's mind to create a spell that could for all intents and purposes, completely kill a unit of Lizardmen, Dwarves, or Undead.
YAY!!!!! The season aspects are here! (hopefully)
I spoke to a guy on dakka three years ago, he had these great ideas for seasonal aspects of wood elves, so we told him to send it to GW and he did. Maybe it really is true.....
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
Wow that sounds like an uber unit.the new treeman hero has regeneration and 7 wounds.. OMG this guy is hardcore at 456 pts better be worth it
Only thing that really gets me mad is that everytime a new army comes out they keep getting better and better and more CHEESE is involved. Other than that they look like awsome models. Do you think they will be in the may US WD?
