    2K First draft list (Forest Dragons and Unicorns continued)

    This is my first list in a long time, but I think I've got my bases covered...

    Highborn
    () Oaken armor
    () Dawnspear
    () Enchanted Shield
    () Forest Dragon

    Spellsinger lvl1
    () Glamourweave Kindred
    () Unicorn
    () 2x Dispell scroll

    Branchwraith
    () Cluster of Radiants

    Core units

    10x Glade guard
    musician

    10x Glade guard
    musician

    8x Dryads

    8x Dryads

    Special units

    3x Warhawk Riders

    8x Wardancers
    musician, Bladesinger

    6x Wildriders of Kurnous
    musician

    Rare units

    5x Waywatchers

    5x Waywatchers


    Notes:
    1) The enchanted shield is there because i had 7p to spare so i upgraded the normal shield (the armour save does stack right?)
    2) I did consider: Dawnspear, Fimblewinter shard and Glamourweave for Highborn but could not feel at ease with the stupidity rule on the Shard...
    3) I did also consider dropping the Branchwraith and the enchanted shield and adding a third unit of 8 Dryads...

    Pls add ur comments guys because there are a few other variations I thought of trying but they involve an almost total reshuffle...

    Cheers,
    Thanks

    Nice list, but first off, remove the point cost from your posts. It is against the rules and someone will call you on it.

    Now for what I would consider changing.

    What to consider picking up:
    Glade Riders w/musicain
    Eagle
    Branchwraith upgrade to level one wizard
    Full Command and Warbanner on the wild riders.

    What to consider dropping:
    one unit of waywatchers
    Bladesinger if you need the points

    What I would do:
    Drop a unit of waywatchers
    Add a Great Eagle
    Upgrade the Branchwraith to a level 1 wizard.
    Drop one regular wardancer
    Upgrade a wild rider to a standard bearer
    Drop one of the musicians on a glade guard unit
    Add the warbanner to the wild riders.
    Switch one dispel scroll for the deepwood sphere

    There is my wordy opinion,

    Soooo sorry

    Sorry guys,

    I missed the part about not being allowed to post point totals...

    It wont happen again.

    I've decided to rebuild and go for speed... No use having the Dragon out in front and nothing there to support him.

    Cheers,
    Will

    If i remember correctly, doesnt making a spellsing/spellweaver part of the glamourweave, give them similar rules to a forset spirit.

    If this is the case you can't flee and you could die against magical attacks.

    I do see the benefit of you giving the spellsinger that and the unicorn, but I personnaly find it a points sink.

    Other than that i like your army build. You covered it in one about the dragon, its going to be a big waste using it in 2000pts.

    In order for a spellsinger/weaver to ride a Unicorn it must be of the Glamourweave kindred... So its not an optional decision.

    I wish it was as easy as just giving him a Unicorn to ride

    cheers,
    Will

    I think the Unicorn is a great idea. Gives you the MR2 to counteract the lack of a ward save when being a Forest Spirit against damaging Spells/affects.

    Fyi

    Only one magic armor is allowed, so no Oak Armor/Enchanted shield combo.

    It is hard to find a way to use leftover points in these elf armies!

    Actually, the Enchanted Shield states in the description that you CAN take it with other Magical Armour

    oops

    In fact, if Im not wrong the rulebook says "can be combined with other mundane armour" under enchanted shield, so... It seems I did get it wrong.

    Q: So even if Helm of the Hunt is a "Helm" and Oaken armour is a "Light armour" Im not allowed to take both? Is the rule always -> 1 magic Item per category, even if its not the same item slot? (As in the armour category example I gave...)

    Yeah, one magic armour, either from the armour section, or commom item that is an armour, which I think is only the shield.
