    A, wrong section this should be posted in the army lists section

    B, what does Upgrade (35) mean?
    You know that making it a wizard costs 50 points

    C, your magic is rather weak with this much flying and in combo with treesingen would be fatal. You could enntrap the enemy and then launcj a flying assault on him:shifty:

    D, two units of ten GG are good. Use the extra points to enlarge the EG regiment.
    And put your Noble in them. Then you have a good solid ground unit to stop and anemy that is braeking through.

    D, make the drayads a smaller unit. You wont get them all in combat (skirmishers) so downgrade them a bit. Same goes for the Wardancers. make them around 8 with command.

    The list looks interesting and do what you want with the comment. (and post things like this in the army list section!!!!)

    Good Hunting!

    The Spell singer should have a pritty good tree singing abilities now. I've kept the Wardancer unit farly big as I love the modles and will defenatly be relying on them heavily as I do not believe the EG will not stand up in a fight forever without help, even with the Nobel and Wraithstone. Hopefully this army will be able to simply dance around its enemies. Any comments still welcome, I want to know exactly what I'; doing before I go and invest money in this project. (So far all I have is 2 units of GG, 12 EG, 1 unit Dryad and a Highborn which I will probaly never use sinse he's not on an Eagle<_&lt

    I like the second list better. Here's what I'd say to keep in mind.

    Eagles are not skirmishers, so you have to be really careful about how you use them.

    I'd make two larger units of warhawk riders and two smaller units of wardancers. As it is, you have 3 true combat units: dryads, wardancers, and EG. The GG can help out the EG, serving as a sort of empire detachment, but more likely you will be fleeing with them. So who's going to help the EG? The Ds and WDs will have to. But that means nobody's out there assaulting the units you're warhawk riders are slowing down.

    Lots of flyers mean that you should be marchblocking parts of his army to throw off his battle line. That's when your nasty units like Ds and WDs come springing out of the woods, ganging up on an enemy unit (It works beautifully, too). But if you do that, then you leave your EG unsupported against scouts, flank and rear attacks, flyers, and such.

    So that's why I say drop the wardancers to two units of 6. They're still very effective and you now have two units that can go harrass the enemy.

    And you'll still have seven flying units.

    Myself, I'd be hesitant to build this army. If I were you, I'd buy some empty 40mm bases or use something else to proxy the models, and run a few games. See if it works, if you enjoy the play style, if it's fun, and so on.

    Just reminding you to not post individual ppoints costs of items, it is illegal. Good list though, definetely listen to david's advice, also the deep wood sphere would not be needed, instead make the singer =, a weaver and the highborn a noble he'll still have good hitting power amd you can give the weaver the wand of wych elm. Good luck.

    i like it it wouldn't be somthing i would feild but my army's really crappy at the moment and i'm looking to change it up a bit and your idea of a flying army is a good one......

    if you want an uber flying character then consider the dragon, i know alot of people will dis this but a dragon used right can be a terrible foe and damn near impossible to kill in any reasonable amount of time plus the terror would help your army out alot

    On my Army list at home that I've been working these post off I've divided the unit of 12 Wardancers into two of 6, I've kept my Lords and Heroes as is as I think the spell weaver is good enough and if I down grade my Highborn then he wouldn't be able to get BoL + Bodkins. Seeing as the only change I've made id the Wardancers I won't put the list up.

    I'm pritty happy with this this and I think I'll give it a try useing bitts of cardbord for the modles I don't have :wacko: , Hopefully it should be able to outmanovuere the enemy and pick off light units for minor vic. Thanks for the help :yes: .

    is that a spellsinger or a spell weaver cus if it's a weaver then you got 2 lords in 2000 points, if it's a singer then it can't be mounted on a great eagle
