Welcome to Librarium Online!
Are there any rumors of Army book for Wood Elves for 7th edition?
I think I saw somewhere that we won't get a new book until GW releases an 8th edition rulebook. So I want to know is this truth (if it is, it sucks...)
"The truth, you can't handle the truth" (in my best jack nickleson voice).
Actually, nobody knows for sure. But the latest I saw is that wood elves won't be out before 2011. It in now rumoured that 8th will be out next year. Truth be told, I would rather have our book come out after 8th is released. Rather be first in line than pulling up the rear. You will probably have to hang tight for a couple of years anyway.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I agree totally. This book is very well balanced, and I would certainly like to see 8th edition for Wood Elves as soon as possible.
Only thing left to do is to wait
Hehe, good to hear that the army I am wanting to start up wont be updated quickly, I want a feel for the army before they update it!
I do think it kinda fails that our 7th edition will be more of an 8th edition... we are kinda skipping the 7th since we probably have to sit thight for a couple of years.
(if you believe the rumour that is)
At the other hand, who cares? I fought the newer armies of Empire and High Elf (as well as dwarfs and brettonnia) and I think our army can grind them to bits if played right!
Few weeks ago I played against Dark Elves, High Elves and Warriors of Chaos, as well as Vampire counts. I had a few very impressive victories!
You guys have so gotta give me a rundown on how to play wood elves, they seem like one of the most difficult to play, with all the moving and whatnot. And the eagles block marching etc.
One thing about WEs is that we're not the most profitable book for them to redo. Look at all the great new models and units that some armies have gotten.
In 2006, WEs got all new rules and models. I'll still argue that we hve the best model line in WHFB. Really slick stuff all the way around IMO.
So it's unlikely that we'll see any existing units get new models. That leaves special characters and new units, and how many new units would we see introduced? I just don't see a lot of room to profit off a new WE release, which is surely a consideration from GW's point of view.
Speaking of new units, I think it'd be cool to see a spite swarm of some sort.
As for rules, we could all go on for ages about that, but we could use some alignment with the current rule set and power levels.
But we're still playable and still competitive. Yet to see against Skaven though. That's gonna be tough, shooting and hordes and magic, ugh!
I play Lizards, Brets and Wood Elves and I am by far more successful across the board with the Woodies. I will be thrilled to see them get updated when it happens but in the current spectrum they play very well in my opinions. And thats against a group with VC, WoC, Dark Elves, High Elves, BoC, TK, Orcs and Empire in it.
