Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have used tree kin in a battle recently and they are amazing! they are very hard to kill and can completely destroy most things in combat. The only thing that annoys me with them is that theyre not as mobile as many of the wood elves. Against lizardmen the skinks blew poisoned darts and threw javelins, making sure I couldnt attack them. Grrr, those pesky skinks, they will die in the end...
Couldn't you screen them with your dryads to help defeat the skink skirmishers? I am thinking of starting WE Forest Spirits as my 3d army and am interested in their limitations before I jump into them too expensively.
Was this a one off Skink regiment or the all singing all dancing Skink army of Doom?
I still hate Twiglets!
It was about 3 units of skinks, I dont know all I know is that there were a lot!
Tree kin are awesome. Mine I use in a line of 3 and promote one to a eldar tree kin. 10 attacks! I use 3 units of them too. Mine took down a hydra aND SOme warriors
Im aiming for a fearsome infestation that will overrun the enemy and Knock him out psychologically. I think I'm almost there.
Fire is killer against Treekin! i found that out the hard way. one time, me and my brother traded armies for one game, just to try each others armies out. he was my high elves, i was his wood elves. i had a unit of 12 dryads screening a unit of 3 treekin. i thought that my treekin would make it into CC no problem, they have a 5 T afterall! but lo and behold, does a fire mage come hither from the sky a-casting conflagration of doom! after the blazing 25 wounds, there was nothing left to see!!!! blasted fire!!!!
Yeah tree kin are awesome but as already said they are really vunerable to fire it isnt funny when youre entire unit goes down in one magic phase to the conflageration of doom! They also have a low initiative but hat really is not a great deal when you have a 4+ save and then 5+ ward. Overall tree kin are quality just dont let them play with fire!
indeed, we can get good magical defense and tree kin have s 5 & T 5 they can pack such a great punch. I love them!
i love em too, but, everyone hates fire.. so i thought about putting a unit of way watchers in front of em cause they -2 to hit .. it kind of worked but the dryad screen is better, move the dryads out of the way and use "call of the hunt" on the tree kin.. boo ya!
vampire counts = magic and black knights wrong!
