Went down to my local gaming club and played my first game today on the beginners evening. My opponent didnt have 750 points so he borrowed 6 ogres to add to his list, also his list wasnt legal but didnt really matter he wasnt prepare to fight this night was just there to paint but was fun anyway.
Rare: Great eagle
Special: 3 Treekin, 5 Wardancers, 5 Wardancers
Core: 18 Glade Guards
Heroes: Noble lord
6 Ogres of some kind (bull ogres?)
10 Highelf Sword masters
Highelf lord on griffon
He had the first turn and moved forward, hid his griffon out of range for my glade guards, behind his ogres.
I had a really good first turn, I charged his ogres with my treekins and 5 wardancers and killed 3 of them, made them run and ran over them, my wardancers ran into his lord/griffon.
My Glade guards shot down 7 swordmasters but the last ones passed its leadership test.
Next turn his 3 swordmasters charged my great eagle, slaughtered it and overrun into 5 wardancers.
To make a long story shorter the 3 swordmasters made my 5 wardancers run away, charged my glade guards, killed a few of them before getting killed, the remaining wardancers killed his lord but ran away from his griffon and then my glade guards shot it down.
So first game, first win even though it wasnt really a serious one I think I learned alot. The glade guard shooting did alot, and I better buy them more time shooting next time around. I also learned how fragile the wardancers are but also how deadly their attacks can be especially while charging, so better be sure to make them flank in the future =)
Il see if I can get another fight but a real one in a week. Time will tell!
Any suggestions for tweeks on the list? It wasnt exactly 750 points but will try and paint more to make it =)
More missile troops!!!!! You can never have enough missile troops. Escpecially as your hand to hand troops, while good fighters, can be very delicate should the dice gods laugh at you!!
I would never take wardancers against high elves, since the high elves will strike first and kill them. On saturday I played a 1000 points gam against high elves and I tabled them without suffering a single wound. I used the following list:
12 glade guards+musician
12 glade guards+musician
10 glade guards+musician
spellsinger level 2 + dispel scroll
spellweaver level 4 (lore of life)
brancewraith + an annoyance of netlings.
On the first turn I cast dwelers from below on his white lions (the mage who was in it died together with a few whiite lions) and he failed his panic test and fled off the table. Then it was quite simple to just shoot his 2 units of swordmasters, and eventualy I finished his spearmen (with the second mage) with my shooting.
