Tourney in two months. 2250 point armies. Looking to hash out a list in the next week, or two at most, so I can start buying and painting models for it.
First, are Naestra and Arahan worth taking on the dragon in a 2250 point tourney army? Assuming so, I'd use a noble as a General. If not, I'll pick up another caster model and use a Spellweaver as my general.
Kind of looking for a list that will have a chance to stand against most armies in a tournament setting.
Rough idea is simply using Glade Guard, two or three units of 10, and possibly a unit of 5-7 glade riders for shooting/baiting purposes. 3-4 units of Dryads, and two units of Dancers for Melee, maybe a unit of Wild Riders as well. Then pack a scroll caddy, a Noble giving him HoDA (( possibly two Nobles, depending on whether or not Naestra and co. are used. ))
Any thoughts and opinions will be greatly appreciated. =)
No, they're not, but they're damned tough to get rid of. Points are scarce in a WE army. Most people would recommend that you get the spellweaver and another noble/highborn model.
Eagles are great, and plenty of archers. Your plan for 30 Glade Guard and 5-7 Glade Riders is a good one. 2-3 units of dryads is probably good. Dancers are fantastic. Wild Riders, maybe. But they're expensive to buy.
Of course, 2 weeks isn't a lot of time. How do you plan to assemble all this in time?
Think you misread
I'm trying to get a list together in two weeks, I've two months to finish the army. I'll try and get a rough list posted sometime tonight though.
You put Naestra and Arahan aren't worth the points if mounted on a dragon. Totally agree with that, too expensive
What do you think about Naestra and Arahan on an eagle? Is that worth having? (never used them myself, just wondered)
I would say they are interesting but not really worth the points for a tournament. That is just a guess I my part, as I have never actually used them myself either. One of the few wood elf models I don't have painted yet.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Rough list idea.
Bigger tourney, so I'm going to assume that everything will be represented at least once. Will be my first tournament playing Fantasy. =)
Highborn, Alter, Light Armor, Shield, Wild Fire Blades, Helm of the Hunt, HoDA, Murder of Spites.
Noble, Wardancer, Blades or Loec
Dispel Scrolls x2 (( Total of four between the models. ))
Glade Guard 3 units of 10
Dryads 3 units of 8
Glade Riders 1 unit of 8
(( If I had one more point open, I could get them a Musician. =P ))
Wardancers 2 units of 6
Warhawk Riders 1 unit of 4
Total = 2,242
Blind Deployment from what I understand. So I'm going to possibly have a slight advantage seeing that Wood Elves are a mobile force.
Alter hopefully with 9" movement will get to choose his charge, in which he'll have 6, Str 4 attacks, and WS of 8, with 1d6 St 2 shots added in from the spite. The noble I was thinking about tossing into one of the two Wardancer units and trying to run them down a flank. The two casters, more or less just there to caddy scrolls, and possibly spam Treesinging, though I'm not sure whether or not the board will be pre-set.
Core. . . Glade Guard will be set on a hill if there's one in my zone, otherwise, most likely try to set up all three units near the center of my zone. Dryads, Two units down one flank, and one down the other, or might use one as a screen unit somewhere. Glade Riders will be set up in the middle, so I can get them to either side to bait a unit if I can.
Warhawk Riders, much like the Glade Riders will most likely be set down in the middle at the start. Wardancers, the unit with the noble, will be paired with the single Dryad unit, the other group will go down the other flank.
Not exactly sure what I should do with the Treeman though. Could use him up the middle, and just try and draw attention to him? Or should I throw the unit of Dryad in the middle and use him down the flank?
Any insight into list changes, or massive flaws in tactics will be apprieciated. =)
