Hey LO I am new to WHFB but I have been playing 40k for awile and I have been considering Fantasy for a long time. With the new rulebook coming out soon I thought it would be a good time to start looking into which army to start. I am stuck between choosing either Wood Elves or Lizardmen. I think both armies look fantastic and I don't have a preffered fighting style. So I thought I would ask the people here at LO what maid them choose Wood Elves.
I play both armies so I think I am in a good position to give my opinion. If your desire is to win now, go with lizardmen. But if you like variety, tactics, and just having fun with the army, play wood elves. Not as powerful as the lizardmen currently, but wood elves will get a new book eventually, and they are really fun to play, especially if you can afford to get all the different models and field various armies. If you are tight on cash and just want to make one army that doesn't vary much, then go with lizardmen.
I will see you around in either the jungle or the forest.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Thanks alot sirkently,
I think I will do wood elves. They seem like alot more fun and I dont mind having to wait awile to learn how to play them correctly and get a large and diverce army. After all I spent the first 4 years of my warhammer life getting my but kicked by my best friend. So I think I can handle learning the different tactics and strategies.
See you in the woods of Athel Loren.
I also play both Wood Elves and Lizardmen, I started out with the Wood Elves... (as sirkently I believe).
I can second what sirkently said. Wood elves are a lot tougher to play, more tactics more thinking and positioning right. Make a single mistake and Wood Elves will make you feel it. This is probably both because of the nature of the WE as of the "outdated" armybook. But that which can be seen as punishing can be fun too, dont get me wrong im not into that sorta stuff... what I mean is that when you get to know the WE they are an unstoppable force!
The lizardmen are easier to play, can take a beating and still dish out a lot of hurt. But Lizardmen need to get up close and personal. Besides magic 24" is the best LM can do (Stegadon with Giant bow at about 250pts per model). So the LM is an army that does things completely different from WE. LM march up, do their hack and slash, then scorch the remainders with unnatural fire and move on to the next battle.
Wood Elves deffinetly seem to be far more fun to play even if it will take longer to master.
I don't like playing armies that are easy to play and dont need a huge amount of stratagy
