    Unsportsman like with....

    Is it unsportsman like to to use the Sisters of Twilight ,where you keep one out of harms way so that they can not die? I might not have worded this right, if not I can explain better.

    Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.

    I'm new to Fantasy, so mine will not be the most sage of advice, but:

    My understanding is that you want to use the Sisters for points denial. Is that right? A big expensive thing that the enemy won't be able to track down and kill...

    Seems to me that plenty of the Wood Elf lists I hear about are all about points denial, so the idea is nothing new, just taking it a bit further.

    As an opponent, I think I'd have to accept that it's just one more example of Wood Elves not playing like a conventional army. Having said that, if I was your friend and had to play that same points denial list the whole time, I'd probably end up a bit jaded about playing you.

    The sisters for a unit with eachother. So it is not really possible to keep them out of harms way.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    This is the way I've thought of it as well, because I don't see 'dismounting' as an option in the game. They are both riding the dragon and so can not be separated. Though if the dragon were to be killed, I could see the two sisters as separate characters on foot. Then you would be able to pull off what you are suggesting. I am not sure if this is allowed though.

    If the dragon is killed, the sisters form a unit of skirmishers. So I don't know how you could hide one as the OP suggested in his questionl.

    I guess you COULD position one sister within 2 inches of the edge of a wood and the other one further in. Sportsman like though? That's entirely up to you.

    I don't think that would really help as, if you get multiple shots on them. By this I mean that is you have 10 archers shooting at the twin sisters, then they have to randomise between the two. This could end up killing them both as the now have no protection.

    Dismounting's in LOTR. It's like a marriage in WHFB. You're stuck with them until death seperates you.
