    1000 Point army idea. Just started playing WH.

    Ok I've just started playing Warhammer after finding a place where i live that has a nice group of people that play. I picked up a starter set and learned the basics and wanted to purchase a new army.

    A guy at the store pretty much told me to look at the wall and find which army appeals to me visually and i chose wood elves. He's been playing wood elves for over 12 years so i got kinda lucky.

    After picking up a Wood elf book and doing alot of research online. I've come up with i think a fairly solid army. Please tell me what i should change and be brutal. This is my first attempt at an army in 1k.

    Most of the guys at the place play 40k and are starting fantasy so they wont have 2k tournies yet. But they have 1k to 1.5k tournies every weekend.


    Wood Elf Noble - 156 points
    Alter Kindred
    Light armor
    Great weapon
    Helm of the Hunt
    Hail of Doom Arrow

    Branchwraith - 140 points
    Lvl 1 Wizard
    Cluster of Radiance


    10x Glade Gaurd/musician/champ - 132 points
    10x Glade Gaurd/musician/champ - 132 points

    8x Dryad - 96 points

    5x Glade Rider/musician/Standard Bearer - 147 points


    7x Wardancer/Full Command - 147 points


    Great eagle - 50 points

    Total - 1000 even

    Any tips are very appreciated. Thanks for looking guys .

    Seems like a pretty solid list. Just a couple of changes I would make.

    Drop the two champs on the glade guard units. Use the points to make one of the dryads a champ (nymph) to protect the branchwraith.

    Drop the standard from the glade riders, as they aren't really a combat unit and you want to deny your opponent points. Just get another wardancer with the points.

    Everything else seems reasonable.

    Have fun.
    I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.

    Sirkentley always gives sound advice. I pretty much agree with him. You have a solid list that will be even better with a few tweaks.

    And welcome to LO.
