Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright I played my friend last night who is Wood Elf's and had a couple questions.
He said that all of his units can march and shoot w/out penalty? Is this true?
His Fast Calvary can to?
Just seems questionable since he never showed me. Thanks.
Also what would a standard strategy be for the Wood Elf's it's just that all of their units have low stats it seems like. Even the Eternal guard hit with S 3 sure they get 15 atks back on the charge but say a dark elf witch which is 10pts hits with 15 unless they lose combat just wondering what some strategies are! Thanks!

Well,seeing as how you can't march and shoot,PERIOD!he was pulling a real fast one.You guys need to read through the rulebook rules section together to know what everything is.If you guys dont have a rulebook,there are a bunch of pdfs online for the current edition WFB rulebook.As far as strategies go,it varies widely better each Wood Elf player,IMO.Also what units everyone picks to comprise their army.
Actually Brother Mike, Fast Calv CAN march and shoot, albiet they are the only unit that can do-so. Thats why our fast calv are 24points each, cause they can march 18" and then shoot 30", with 0 penalty.
But he is correct, the rest of our troops canno marh and shoot at all.
Also, bear in mind that the W.E army book is pretty old now, and the D.E rules are still relativly fresh. We don't add up mathamatically to most of the recent armies. However our tactics generally revolve around doing the unexpected and throwing the enimy out of their gameplan, leading them to making mistakes that we can exploit. Witch elves do cost less and have more attacks, but they also have frenzy, an easily exploitable rule. One unit of galde riders can have this unit causing all kinds of problems for a D.E player.
Yeah, the normal troops can move and shoot without penalty, not march. The glade riders can march and shoot with no penalty.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Really,fast cavalry can do that?!?!?Looks like i need to read through the rulebook myself!Wow i never took them before but i might start experimenting with them.
What others said about the move and shoot thing.
As for the stats thing there are lots of things in the game that seem like they shouldn't work but they do. All I can say is my Woodies are currently winning three games for every game lost.
