Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi all, I'm playing in a tournament soon and my first opponent is TK and I'm playing as Wood Elves ( it's 1000pts), I'm just looking for some advice in bringing them down I think I have a general game plan I'll put my list up later but any pointers, tips, things not to forget and advice would be greatly appreciated.
- Should I bring scrolls/magic defense or just ride the storm and snipe the casters
- Should I go combat heavy? I've heard tell the best way to beat TK in 1500pts or less is to swamp them with combat troops and snipe characters
-Best way to deal with chariots without Str. 7 units ?
- And what do you think I should worry about most ?
By the way, here is the list I'm thinking of taking
Alter Noble – 158 points
Helm of the Hunt
Hail of Doom Arrow
Spell Singer - 140
2x Dispell Scrolls
10 Glade Guard- 120 10 Glade Guard – 120
8 Drayds – 96 8 Drayds – 96
7 WarDancers – 133
5 WayWatchers – 132

you might wanna give your mage staff of cailigor so you can same treesing to try and block the chariots. and something fast instead of the waywatchers should be cool too. It's great for tying up enemy shooting of magic, unit's like eagle's or warhawk riders should serve you fine for that. and if you have the points get the GG a musician. it's great if you can get those GG to get back into the battle
Hmmm... Just as a heads up. I generally find the staff by -itself- is not very useful. If you throw four dice, you're only getting two off successfully, and at an average of powerlevel 4, which is easy to stop.
If you want to tree sing, take at least two singers.
Now, if you take a Lvl 2 Singer, and a Level 2 Singer with the staff; THEN you can throw 6 Power dice at three instances of tree singing.
2D6= 7 Average.
2 D6= 7 Average.
2 D6= 7 Average.
D3+1= 3 average.
So, that's some good singing! Hard to stop too.
hehehe let's go crazy then!!!
Spell singer lvl2, dispel scroll
Spell singer lvl2, staff of cailigor
2 x 10 Glade guard (music) 252
3 x 8 Dryads 288
8 War dancers (music) 151
Total 991 points
just run trough your tree sung forests with your skirmishers and be a general pain in the ass ! this list should also offer you enough Power dice to do other magic when the need for tree singing is gone. And the strong core section will assure you get some punches in. it's great against those immense undead spawning armies. and those dryads just tare through skeletons like there is no tomorrow.
p.s. I know it's silly but I just ran a similar list with only 1 spellsinger and 1 dryad unit less at 750 and it worked great . Just tree sing the heck out of him and they will learn to respect the treehuggers .
