I am new to the community and new to warhammer fantasy, so here's my attempt at a decent wood elves army list.
I'm trying to finalize my Wood Elves army without spending too much more money on them. My group of potential enemies includes: Warriors of Chaos, Dark Elves, High Elves, and Tomb Kings. I am trying to get a skeleton for a well rounded list around 1750 points that I can make minor adjustments to depending on the army. This particular example will be for the other two factions of elves, because those friends play more regularly.
Spellweaver- lvl4 Lore of Life with Glamourweave(item) and Wand of Wych Elm 335
Noble BSB- Asyendi's Bane, HoDA, banner of eternal flame 134
Noble- Eagle mount, Helm of Hunt, Wildfire blades, Potion of Strength 179
18 GG- Musician and BSB here 222
I plan to use the "anvil and hammer" tactic, with the Treeman being my anvil in radius of my BSB and the two dryad squads as hammers. My Waywatchers and Eagle noble are for warmachine/character hunting as I will be facing wizards, hierophants, bolt throwers, etc.
Overall, do you think this list is functional? (with consideration to small wargear/unit size adjustments given the opponent) Constructive criticism is welcomed, and any suggestion as to how to use the units I have here differently from people who have experience with WE. Thanks everyone!!
First off, welcome to the forest. Hope you have fun with the wood elves. Now onto the list.
One rule problem, your BSB can't have both magic items and a magic banner. Its either/or. Easy fix is to give it to a standard bearer in the glade guard unit.
Dryads don't really do it for me in this edition. I would drop them and the waywatchers for some treekin. They are the killy force in the wood elf army now.
The list as is can be functional, though I think it would have some trouble against warriors of chaos. Are you planning on increasing your points level of play?
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Thank you for your response and suggestion Sirkently. So I should give the flaming banner to the regular standard bearer in the 18 block of wood elves, and then use the noble just for hail of doom arrow? Also I forgot to mention that I do in fact have 6 treekin so I could definitely substitute those for some dryads, and maybe add a few more waywatchers for those chaos heavy calv. Thanks again for the suggestions, and for the welcome!
