Well I've decided to go Wood elves for my first fantasy army and I've recently purchased the army book and ready to get started on my army. However before I do that, I wanted to ask some questions to get your opinions and advice from the more experienced players and some example army lists.
1. Way-watchers look awesome, but are they worth it or should they be left at home?
2. Can a WE army be competitive with just elves and no tree spirits such as dryads, treemen, etc.
3.Whats a good number of Glade Guard units to get and how many in each unit?
4. Finally, I saw this on the wood elf wepsite and it was a tactica about something called the Eternal Guard Phalanx. Are Eternal Guard a good unit and has anyone seen or tried out this phalanx formation because it sounds really intriguing.
Of course, the double treeman list is quite scary against some people! Just be careful if somebody takes a flaming magic lance.
One of my Eternal Guard looks like he's breaking his weapon over his head, and I can't correct it, lol.
He's so going in the back rank

I second sir Kently, although I must say I am one of those players who field 3x10GG in 1000 point games... cause im always playing against magic heavy or shooting heavy lists. I dont like eternal gaurd, they arent wood elvish.
A treeman is great but be sure to have some helping units around and a battle standart bearer to make sure he stays in combat!
Ow, and another pointer, dont go try to play magic heavy, we arent the best army for that... do note that I dont think we are competitive since im playing empire, high elves or dwarfs. So my oppinion may be twisted.
Hey thnxs for ur help so far. I've decided to start out with at least 2x units of 12x GG and is this a good number. Also, I would like some more info if anyone on here as used eternal guard before in units of 20x or more because and what are some good tactics to run them. Also because there models look freaking awesome!
I have run a big unit of eternal guard before. If you really want them to have a chance, you need a highborn with the rhymer's harp in the unit. Also a BSB and take the warbanner on the unit standard.
Basically run them up the board, and keep some skirmishing units off to the side for flanking in later turns. Nice to have a treeman in the list also.
But again, it isn't really going with the wood elf strength, just good for a change of pace.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Vampire counts actually. But yeah.... I hate that...
That said, heavy treesinging lists are situational, and IMO, fun. Also, I like running singers with my Treeman Ancient.
