Is that an Alter Noble? Or just regular noble?
Thank you sirkently, and yes it is an alter, i was posting in a hurry:rofl
i was considering using wildriders instead, and having both at 2,250, so which of the below would be better???
5 Wild Riders - 191pts
Musician, Standard, Wild Hunter, War Banner
6 Wild Riders - 190pts
Musician, Standard, Wild Hunter
I like the wild riders 6 wide for the same reason as I like treekin 4 wide.
urrgh, i have a rough idea of all opponents, we're lookin at:
2-3 Vampire Counts (one player is renowned for bein a cheeselord)
1 Tomb Kings (all magic but no casket, 2 screaming catapults?)
1 Ogre Kingdoms (know the guy well, hammer him every game)
2 Orcs and Goblins (surprisingly both magic heavy pure gobbo lists)
1 High Elves
2 Dwarves (one guys is lyk totally elite)
1 Wood Elves other than me surprisingly (lots of spirits but with bowfire)
-and i think one skaven, maybe a couple others yet.
Mainly concerned with the undead armies, not much experience against them but i know the new vampires are nighmarish. Anyone have a few tips vs them? And the forest woodies, if i play him it will be interesting
thanks in advance again all;Y
Do your tournaments have peer based composition scores? My comments are from my personal experiences in my local tournament scene where wood elves are hated. So with that in mind;
Mirage Arcana Podcast
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.
Well,like in previous posts ancients make no friends so i have never used one but with AoN i might have to.The only thing i have a problem with is close to no units that are durable enough to withstand charges and its something i always consider but yea you got to know what your doin.
I'd like to add my voice to those criticising the 3 treekin. In my experience, ogre type things need to be 4+, else they don't have the staying power. I'm not a huge fan of treekin anyway, but if you're goin to have them, have 4. With a free rare slot, I'd always try to squeeze an eagle in - they are seriously useful!
As mentioned above, i have swapped the tree-kin for 6 Wild Riders with full command. Never really used them before, but tried them against my beastmen "friend" yesterday and blasted him with them. 18 up the board, Call of the Hunt into the side of his warhounds(wiped them out of course), Overran into his chariot and smashed that to bits too! No one left in the way (everyone else decided to get outof their way), overran to unoccupied corner where they sat comfortably for the rest of the game!!!:party:
Wood Elves have no friends to begin with around here lol. so the ancient is fine. usually when im painting at the local gw, you get comments like "so when are you going to start playing a real army?" silly, but satisfying when they still charge my glade riders when i play them. XD
@Skarsgard: do you think i should drop one scroll to put both dryad units to 9men?
They definately are the better choice, thanks guys. i just have a soft spot for tree-kin (sooo beefy lol)
So what am i to do about the undead (both VC and Tomb Kings)? they are the ony armies i dont have much experience against. I do know one of the VC players always uses 2 varghulfs and another takes cairn wraiths and the black coach. and i know next to nothing about tomb kings except the have really angry magic.
Can anyone help me out?
