Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello everyone, I'm just starting up in Warhammer and i'm starting with a Wood Elf Army (I got it cheep from my sister) and so far I have 1 Wood Elf Lord with Greatweapon model and 1 Battalion box (24 Glade Guard, 8 Glade Riders and 12 Dryads. Well, 11 Dryads since one of them broke and went missing when my sister painted it) So far 5 of the models are painted (Not counting the missing dryad) so I'm gonna try to get some paints soon so I can start painting the rest of them and I was wondering if I should get some more models at the same time
It's mostly going to be 1000 point matches and maybe sometimes 2000 point matches, Atleast at first
Any help and tips is appreciated^^
Oooo, Quick edit. I'l probably be facing primarily Warriors of Chaos, Vampire Counts and Bretonnia. Though the Warriors of Chaos player might change to Dwarves soon as he feels his army is a bit over powerd. Those are the only three I'v actually seen play. There are a few others that suposedly plays with them at times but I dont know what armies they might have

You will probably want to pick up some Special/rare choices, and you definatly want at least One mage.
I will say that a Treeman is never a bad Idea. It is the only thing in our army that is always going to be a threat to any opponent that we face.
Other than that, it depends on what you preferances are in playstyle.
Well, I was thinking of buying 3 Warhawk Riders (Smallest group you can ahve is 3 of them) But they are a bit expensive to buy.. Lets see, One mage, Thats the spellsingers right? With the paint, paintbrushes and spellsinger.. Then I might need to wait and save money buying a few models at a time.. As for what kind of army I want, I was thinking more elves then trees. Dunno what kind of playstyle I'l have, Never actually played yet so I'l have to experiment on that some..
I'd think about converting some wild riders and wardancers before I bought hawkriders. The hawks are cool models, but difficult to use in gameplay effectively. They will also have limited use against vampire counts and chaos warriors or dwarves.
If you wana get the wahawks i would say go for it if you want a 120 point unit thats gonna do really nothing except march block? Haha. Yea get some dancers and wild riders. And i would consider an eagle.
Mate, the most important thing you do is get some low point games against friends who don't mind that your army isn't painted, and will help you learn the rules.
Then, when you feel more comfortable with the army at a low point level (1000 points?) start borrowing models to try out other units, as different people like different things. A lot of people don't like warhawks as they are difficult to use, but this doesn't mean YOU won't like them. In a recent tournament my 120 point unit of warhawks basically bagged me about 500 points in one turn, (though this was a bit fortuitous).
Start getting some games and developing your own gaming style, and then decide what models YOU want to play with.
NB, many casual gamers won't mind you proxying models at first.
Welsh im giving you your first rep for that. And yea listen to him dude.
Much love KPJD23
Well, For things like borrowing models and such, Thats kindof hard. You see where I live there is no gaming clubs or games workshop stores or anything like that at all. So the only people I got to play against is realy my sisters boyfriend (Who plays vampire counts) And his friends. And none of them has any wood elves.
And by the looks of things it's probably gonna stay arround 1000 points, Sometimes up to 2000 points
But thanks for all the tips and stuff^^
Maybe a box of Wardancers when I buy the paints and see how that goes then..
