Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
2 separate things here:
1. I think it would be best to think of wood elf magic as mostly defensive in nature. Even with a spellweaver, we can't get our power dice very high and our magic just isn't as high impact as that of other races. If you take enough casters to actually get spells through, then you'll be lacking in killing power in other areas. Where spellweavers shine is defensive magic by using the wand of wych elm combined with a branchwraith with cluster of radiants. 6-8 Rerollable dispel dice will go a long way toward shutting a daemon or VC player down. That said, this is kinda overkill against most opponents.
2. A spellweaver on a forest dragon is not a legal choice in the army book. Even if it was though it would be REALLY bad. Not only would you be wasting the points of the dragon but you'd be putting a gigantic large target bullseye on your spellweaver.
I like putting him on an eagle myself. Gets you into the position you want, and usually keeps you out of charge arc of the enemy units.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I personally put mine on a unicorn. With 20" normal movement, magic resistance (2) plus being a warmachine killer I enjoy the unicorn but only if you have the points to put into her. Oh and you get the ward for being a forest spirit.

it actually is very funny to see my spell weaver on her unicorn decimate empire or goblin warmachine crews, (hell +2 str on teh charge for good ole bill the unicorn) but ive only done it once or twice. Just when im trying to have fun. Otherwise i plop her in a wood and just have sit there all game dispelling and singing a lil bit.
