    Lost in the Forest

    Ok so here I am getting bored of my other armies and I find myself drawn to the protectors of Athel Loren, I swear war is not a hobby its an addiction. Anyways the question I have is....

    I have now 2 battalion box sets which gives me

    48 Glade Guard
    16 Glade riders
    24 Dryads

    As well I picked up a box of 10 wardancers, a treeman which is in the process of a conversion overhaul, 5 wild riders, 10 eternal guard 2 spellsingers and a noble

    so what should I get next since im kind of new to the forest? also what should I expect from this army I hear its a finesse style play which is definately a lurning curve from my skaven and OnG masochistic ways sigh

    anyways any help would be fabulous

    What should you get next? One thing, an eagle.

    Then get busy assembling and painting. You've got everything you need to have a great army with several permutations.

    Wildrider units are typically in 6, so you may want to get one of those. I actually use the Highborn on steed as my 6th wild rider since there isn't much use for the model and it looks pretty bad-ass.

    The Eagle is a great adition to any list.

    You will probably only need 1/2 the glade riders you have as archers, you may want to convert some of the others into scouts and waywatchers.

    Characters you will want to get is the Highborn on foot with the Great Weapon and a caster type. these are common in most armies.

    waywatchers but you already have enough glade guard to convert 8 into scouts/waywatchers.

    One thing I would add to the others is another noble with a great weapon. A lot of list you see here run two alter characters with great weapons.

    I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.

    Well I think everything has been said,

    A second Noble (our magic isnt as strong as it might look) to run 2 alters.

    A great eagle, really handy for march blocking.

    some waywatchers nice when going against heavy armoured close combat armies.

    But there is one unit I field a lot when playing against artillery heavy armies (like dwarfs or empire). And that is warhawks. Not everyone plays them, they need to git into your style. But that goes for everything "special" from the WE

    So I suggest you buy some (4-6) warhawks to squash those artillery fire lines!

    And welcome to the Forest!
