    2250 pt Forest Spirits for MOAB

    heading off to MOAB in a couple of weeks and i still haven't got an army list sorted at the moment. i am doing a forest spirit army, but i can't take drycha unlike usual so I'm in a bit of a pickle trying to decide what to do to my current list as it stands below, but I'm stuck on Singles choices (lord, Hero & rare choices)

    Core
    8 Dryads
    8 Dryads
    8 Dryads
    8 Dryads
    8 Dryads
    8 Dryads

    Special
    3 Tree Kin
    3 Tree Kin
    6 Wild Riders, full command & War Banner

    so far just under 1250 pts, = 1000 left to spend

    Singles Idea 1
    Treeman Ancient with some Spites
    Treeman
    Branchwraith level 1 with dispel spite
    Branchwraith level 1 with dispel spite

    Singles Idea 2
    Treeman
    Treeman
    Spellweaver level 4 Glamourweave, Dispel Spite and mount
    Branchwraith (maybe)

    green is the models i have, red are the ones i'll potentially need to get

    --EDIT--
    doing the maths, the 2 braichwraiths cost 280 pts, while the level 4 weaver is 288. comparatively, these options add 2 Power + 4 Dispel and 4 power + 2 dispel respectively, which makes me wonder to go more offensive of defensive. the weaver i suppose has the ability to be defensive too though, with the addition of even more points (sigh, and i was toying with the idea of a eagle for her too)

    Each sprite can only be taken once per army, so you can't have 2 clusters or radiants.

    Other then that, I can't help to much as I only just started with Wood Elves. Core and special look pretty solid to me. If you're taking a Spellweaver for predominantly magic defense the Wand of Wych Elm might be worth the investment, but no one else here seems to take it.

    Singles Idea 3
    Treeman Ancient with some Spites
    Treeman
    Branchwraith with dispel spite
    Spellsinger level 1 Glamourweave, 2 X Dispel Spite and mount

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    Spites can only be taken once, just like a magic item.'

    I like Idea 2.

    option 3 looks like the best so far, good idea to combine the two skar. i was shying away from the weaver because its a huge amount of points for 1 T3 model. do you think it's worth buying that extra level for the singer though? considering i'll be needing offensive magic to touch things like flyers or faraway artillery

    Agreed. Leave her lvl 1. With only 5 power dice total, a lvl 2 caster and a BW won't accomplish much. Better to leave her at lvl 1 and use the points elsewhere.

    would it be worth putting the singer on a unicorn instead? it's roughly 40 points more and it buys some useful stat upgrades. also can it still join other units even though it's a monster (sryads, tree kin or wild riders)?

    i am so indecisive.

    plus three bound tree singing...

    ok, 1 day to go, and i still haven't purchased that last hero yet the list at the mo =

    Treeman Ancient
    Branchwraith w/ level 1 magic and dispel Spite
    7 x 8 Dryads
    2 x 3 Treekin
    6 Wild riders w/ full comand and warbanner
    Treeman

    and the undecided charachter is currently:
    Level 1 Spellsinger w/ Glamourweave, Steed & Dispel Scroll.

    i have 74 points to kill. what should i get?
    i was seriously thinking about the unicorn instead of a steed (it's a forest spirit you see) but i haven't heard much about them, and it would knock out a lot of points.
    alt, i could get the HoD arrows, and spread some spites around, but none seem that useful.
