You Can't Put The Cat Back In the Bag
well as you know cobler i'm new to fantasy but it sayas in our armybook that you Always get the free woods. It's like saying a brettonian army they can't use spear formation. It just seems very unlikly they would not allow you to do it. and yes something I aggree on is that we are Heavyly dependant on terrain as is lot's of pure shooting armies. jsut try to get some scouts in your list and take up as much terrain as you can and jsut be quick trying to hit omething that moves really fast like we woodies do is kinda hard. and just try to get out of the arc of fire from the enemies shooting if he has to turn his shooting to hit you he takes another -1 to his shooting that's all I know so far and all I can suggest on this.
hope it helps
Most tourneys don't allow the free forest.
I think you'll find WEs really aren't all that reliant on forests. I can win with just my free forest, and even then, all I did in said game was place my march-blocking scouts in there.
Just use what terrain you have, and a bit of creative thinking will see you do fine without a forest. Buildings, for example, are great to hide behind, or deploy scouts behind before sending them in Turn 1 etc.
That's about the best advice I have really. WEs do struggle to win without forests, but it is definitely accomplishable.
why in the name of athel don't they allow the free forrest it's something intwined wit the army. It makes absolutly no sence?! why do they do that?
Some tourneys do allow them but I think they decided WEs are a bit powerful with them. Probably to do with their "No modifying the terrain" rule.
well no woods at all makes a vaible aspect of WE list namly treesinging useless. Just seems a bit unfair to take away this tackticale aspect with is very important to WE tacktics. I mean why not nerf all other armies. Where WE so overpowered in the tournement circuit with it?
are you even allowed to treesing then with that rule since you are changing the the terrain

Well, it does say in the army book that WE's only get there free wood in pitched battles. So if a tournament is using scenarios, then they can justify not giving it to wood elves. But the ones I have been in do allow it in scenarios, just an organizer preference.
Not much we can say about it as it is a rule.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
i'm assuming there is still terrain, just not trees per se. I'd use what's there. Most balanced armies have ways of getting to shooting units quickly (GR, Eagles, WW, etc) so make sure you take advantage of them. While so many units are shooting at your treeman, you should be able to sneak in and hit them where it counts. Treeman still has T6 so while he will probably got down quicker than he used to, he can take some shooting.
But what hapens when evil demon flamers burn the treeman or 4 bolts throwers or 4 great cannons i am most worried about my treeman any idea what to do

WE is probably the army that masters the most the terrain. I could understand not allowing the free forest in scenarios but on the other hand, players should have a variety of terrain pieces. It does makes treesinging useless, where magic is an important factor...
But I guess we shouldn't make ourselves dependant on terrain. WE are a quick army and no terrain can compromize that.
