    OR THIS LIST

    Dispel Scroll, Wand of Wych-Elm, L4

    Spellsinger
    Dispel Scroll, Divination Orb, L2

    Branchwraith

    Noble

    Personaly I like the second list but it lacks CC bigtime. But I will use the WW to slow the advance and snipe. Can they pick out characters in a unit or not?

    The first list is not nearly as shooty but has the Treeman.

    Anyway. What do you lot think?:w00t:

    I like the first list, but if you're going to have eternal guard and a treeman, then use a battle standard bearer so that they can both reroll their stubborn tests.

    I've never had great luck with WWs, so I tend to shy away from them.

    Thanx to the mod for moving it.:yes:

    My problem with the first list is that as far as I know everyone either has fire mages or
    has two great cannons, bolt throwers and the likes.

    My 2nd list is nice in the fact that it has alot of archers.
    If i stick to woods those Bolt throwers wont hurt as much.

    And I would rather keep the Alter than alter him to a BSB.
    Could you maybe give me some tactics as these will be my first games with WE:w00t:

    I personally prefer the 1st list as you have more magic and you have the treeman to distract fire from your shooty and combat units. I think the second list is also good but for a tournement I would go for the 1st list.

    Vassal Record 1-2.

    Dohh. Sorry the second list was also supposed to have a spell weaver.
    I do not know how I forgot my most important unit:wacko:

    Sorry about that.
    Anyone want to change oppinions.
    Also you should see list 2 has about 330+- points missing.:yes:
    I will change that

    Hmm, tactics...

    Well, I try to use units in teams. If the eternal guard are left unsupported they won't last long at all. They need their flanks protected by dryads or terrain, and they need some counter-charge units, like dryads or wild riders.

    Use fast cav/flyers to march block enemies you want to shoot up and avoid in combat.

    Give the alter the helm of the hunt. That extra attack can make a big difference, especially at str 6.

    Don't wait around for the HoDA. If a target presents itself, take it. You'll be hitting on 2's most of the time with his excellent BS, and you don't want him to die before you let fly with the best magic arrows in the list.

    I'd drop the GG down to 10 to let the EG have the warbanner. Or if you do drop, say, the branchwraith (since you've already got pile of good magic) for a BSB, give him a mundane standard and the annoyance of netlings. He's unlikely to die and then you've got +3 to combat res from the standards alone. And you get stubborn, and you get stubborn rerolls. Really, really worth considering. I guess I'd suggest you try the list with and without a BSB a few times and see how it goes.
