So i have a quick question:
Goblins fear elves that they dont outnumber 2 to 1. Do Forest Spirits count as elves for this purpose? They are in the Wood Elf army (hell they cause fear anyway), but its just something my friend and I were discussing. They truly arent elves since their damn trees, but Wild Riders are forest spirits and they are elf models. So whats the ruling here? This is also important for things that have elven hatred.
Sorry, as far as I have ever seen it played in friendlys as well as tournys, Forest Spirits are not elves - therefore no fear to gobos for that part - now the fact they cause fear period is still involved though. "Just not through being an elf" though.
+ Wild riders cause fear on the charge - even if its a failed charge. Not sure about the ruling here on them dealing with gobos, but I would argue due to their fluff and their ruling of being forest spirits then no they are no longer elves per say anymore.

Forest spirit rule does not preclude elf. Glamourweave kin are still techincally elves; they simply gain rules, they do not lose them.
The same is true of Nobles and Highborn. This is important for Wild Rider kin as they get to keep their bow, and the WE special rules for moving and shooting still apply to them. If it's true of a Wild Rider character, I'd think it'd be true of the smaller unit as wel.
And, beyond that, Wild Riders look obviously elven, and have elven stat lines. If someone is going to try saying something that is an elf by lore is not an elf just because their special rules don't list "Elven", well, they're a spoil sport.
It's like saying that Lizardmen aren't really lizardmen, because their rules don't have that name written in them.
I'd argue that dryads, treekin, and treemen are not elves, but they cause fear anyway so the point is moot.
I would say that wild riders and glamourweave/wild rider kindred characters are elves.
My point exactly.
