Tomorrow is the big Indy GT tourney in Dallas, and I'm primed, painted, and ready to roll.
I am worried, though, about facing a couple of things. First, the Casket of Souls. If one of those gets on a hill, it could mean quick doom for my Wood Elves. I'm not sure what to do other than take in the gut whatever magic is thrown at me and save dispel dice for the casket, not forgetting magic resistance from one of my three MR units. That and get into combat ASAP with it.
The other thing that worries me is the dreaded steam tank. I can try to avoid it, but if that doesn't work, then what? My heaviest unit is Treekin. I haven't faced a tank since the new Empire book came out. The War Alter I'm not so worried about. I can ignore it and only lose around a 100 or VPs, but the Steam Tank represents close to three times that.
I don't play that long to no what these guys do, could you explain a bit. Not the point costs and that sort of illegal stuff, just the information you can give. Theire weaknesses and strenghtes.
WE are darn near useless against a Steam Tank. Ive tried many times to think of how to take one down, but havent come up with much. I think all you can do is to move forests and stuff in front of it. Other than that, Im stumped.
As for that darn casket... jeez. Just try to stay in the forest, I guess. But then youll never get to shoot anything. Or hope your opponent doesnt get a hill. Or do just what you said and save your DD for it.
I think the best I can do is just wish you good luck, lol.
Current Wood Elf Tourney List: 3/1/3
As said, save your scrolls or 3 DD for the Casket, as for the Stanks . . . well, you can only learn by playing against them I guess. A lot of people hype them up, but unfortunatly for good reason. The winning army from my heat of the GT had 2 Stanks, 4 Cannons, 2 wizards and An Arch Lector on Wagon - I watched it tear a wood elf skirmishing line apart.
Ok ok, I know that doesn't help. To play against Stanks with elves it's simply really, go for the points you can get - Table Quaters, Standards, General, BSB and ignore the Stank. In order to get points for Stanks you have to kill them, which is especially difficult for low Strength elves. Treekin can possibly hold up a stank for a turn or two if they get the charge, but otherwise stay away from them, especially with your immune to Psych units that can't flee as a charge reaction. Remeber though, the Stank never fails a charge - it always moves it's full steam points.
Here's hoping you don't face um.

I took a steam tank down with an alter lord once. Took somme really lucky rolling. I spent several turns pounding into it with arcade bodkins, and then I got bored and chardged it. Destroyed it with a greatweapon which was fun.
My oppenant got upset and walked outside and went home. i think it was because it was his first game at vets night and i destoyed his favourite unit. At least I did it quicker than a britonnian player.

LOL, that's cool Sabeel786, always fun to see players get so upset with there lose that tthey walk out. DavidVC04, ignoring things isn't one of my favourite thing to do, but I'm very glad it worked oke. Asrai, just the best:party:.
Talking about Brets Vs Stanks, it's always a laugh to see a Bret with the Virtue of killing blow Vs Large targets slapping a Stank in one round of combat.
