Hello people. I am starting a diorama project for a painting competition at my local Games workshop store. And i decided to make a scene where the wood elves face off against some race, but i cant figure out which. I read in the warhammer rulebooks race section where they tell more about the races and i couldnt find any enemies for the Wood elves except the dwarfs or beastmen(?), and i dont think they fit in that good in my diorama. So long story short, what are the wood elves primary enemies? Are Dark Elves just as big a threat to Wood Elves as for High elves? Or are wood elves enemies only Dwarves and Beastmen? So, lore masters, help me out here ;P
Thanks for replies in advance
Good choice, Wood Elves are always depicted as fighting against Beastmen....its so iconic that it's also cliche now. DE may not be the most likely thing you would find in the WE forrest, but they do often launch slave raids all over the place (so a slave raid narrative would be really cool). It might be really cool/different to have WE fighting off undead....there was a white dwarf campaign about a necromancer who was running around in the WE woods looting burial mounds.... Lots of narrative scope there for a great diorama. Also dont forget that WE and Dwarves hate each other. In fluff there was a famous war between Dwarves and Wood Elves...Something about Dwarves cutting down their magic forrest.
So if you are looking for something different there are lots of options.

Undead would be good. Also, wood elves have been known to face off against hordes or skaven tunneling up from the underworld.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
We'll pretty much shoot at anything that invades Athel Loren tbh :p
Men, elves, dwarves, agents of chaos, undead, greenskins, rat-men, the odd wandering Ogre... lizardmen don't seem to pop over that often though, think it's the climate
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Would be cool to see a small number of woodelf skirmishers holding back a pack of vampires!
