Hey, looking at the following list for a friendly against Skaven
Treeman Ancient 350 (General)
Annoyance of Netlings
Lvl 1 Wizard, Cluster of Radients
Wood Elf Noble 105
Hail of Doom Arrow
Wood Elf Noble 100
3x 10 Glade Guard w/ Musician (126pt each) 378 (Nobles go here)
9x Dryads 108 (branchwraith goes here)
3x Tree Kin 195
5x Waywatchers 120
I'm looking at trying to rain pointy death and try to cause some panic.....the tree kin treeman and dryads will try and create diversions allowing more pointy death
I'm a little concerned about Skaven magic though....and of being completely overwhelmed by cheap ratmen
I would say you have one too many character. I would drop one of the nobles, and make the other a BSB. You really need a BSB in this edition. That would give you a few points to get a fourth treekin.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
The character with Starfire arrows was a late edition, I wanted the panic arrow to try and upset the rats, didnt work as well as I had hoped but was still worth it in the end.
Played the game on Saturday night and won by 500pts. The Skaven magic is very deadly he cast the Plague spell twice (both failed Dispels...should have taken a scroll caddy) and it ripped through the archers but luckily for me it bounced onto his horde unit and wiped out half of it BWAHAHA.
Treeman and treekin were superb! Dryads didnt get to fight as they got turned into rats.
Wood elf shooting is defintaley much more effective with the new rules, I was a bit worried that the army would not really perform well as this was my first game of 8th but I think they are a really great army to play and have some good options
i personally like taking lvl 4 wizard with life in this match up. Dwellors bellow is amazing on their hordes, 50% rape
Way Watchers, as much as I love them, really haven't been making it into my lists because of how expensive they are for what 8th has made them. Scouts. Killing blow is nice, but for the price per model, it's really not worth it anymore. Against skaven, the killing blow is all but worthelss anyway. I would 100% agree that a level 4 Lifeweaver with a Wand of Wych Elm would have served you so much more than the TMA. The dispelling capabilities alone would have made her worth it, but as stated, Dwellers Below DESTROYS Low S Hordes like it's nothing at all.
40k: Silver Angels of Our Martyred Lady 7/2/3 - Daemons of the Great Squiggle! 3/1/0
Fantasy: Windhost of Athel'Loren 2/0/0 - Daemons of Another Great Squiggle! 0/0/0
Warmahordes: Legion of Everblight (Absylonia)
Yes treeman can be friendly......sometimes
The new rules have just made scouts better and brought them up to Waywatchers level. They did ok, killing blow was pretty good....it was great picking out his lone characters and weapon teams and just wiping them out with 6's bwahaha.....but yeah it is much better served against high armour units.
I'm yet to try a expensive wizard, in every game I have played the most I ever go is lvl2........Its something im planning on trying out in the future. The TMA did great got rid of 20 plague monks and then the remnants of his clanrat horde....easily killed off his points cost!
Some of the Life spells do look quite good...option for next game
