Welcome to Librarium Online!
New to the Warhammer game (I have played WH40k a little though and will continue with that while collecting WH army as well) I have looked into all the races. Read alot about choosing armies, that not only should you choose the ones that you like the strategy for but also the minis since you will be building and painting alot.
After looking through all of the armies I narrowed it down to the Wood Elves and the High Elves (I swear that my Eldar "Space Elves" loving mind made me pick these). I like the Wood elves using the forest to their advantage and being a reletively "shooty" army. I also like the High Elves and their balance of magic, cavalry, and troops. Both have dragons as well.
Im hearing about the chance of the HE's getting a new codex in the summer which is nicely placed near my birthday to buy the book and some units. Should I wait for that to come out before choosing?
Anyone have any words of wisdom for choosing between the two? Any help would be much apprieciated.
Well i play both High Elves and Woodies (and 40k eldar, you can say i am a pointy ear )
Wood elves also come with the tree spirits and will kick but in CC and can shoot as hell aswell. Teh model range is great aswell.
In contrast to HE woodies are a bit for forgiving to play due to the tree spirits those toughness give you more resilliance to take mistakes.
HE are great in magic and are on the list to be renewd soon.
They are more balanced. They take more getting used to but are great fun to play with.
On which to choose really depends.
Do you want an amry with mostly nromal regiments with support ---> HE
You want more a lot of skirmishers and like then go Wood elves
Hope it helps
