Hello Everyone. Recently I have become very bored with 40k. I am Staring Fantasy along with a few of my other buddys. one is starting chaos, one high elves and another empire. I had started this beginning of fantasy craze with looking into wood elves. I like the models and the idea of trees coming alive and killing you, tons of archers and sneeky stuff. My Idea of staring would be to get the rule book and find out what stuff does before I buy and army. This is so I can get what I want abilities wise, not how cool the model looks so lets get it and be disapointed. I am wondering if you think this is a good idea or not. Thanks for any replies.:ninja:

The Army book is always the best place to start. I suggest that if you decide to follow through with WE that you design a warband or border patrol army and start by building that. It will allow you to play games with/against your friends and give you a feel for the WE with out committing to 1500 or 2000 pts. IMO the starter box and 1 hero is good way to create the warband army and will give you a few extra units so you can switch what units you play with.
You should also decide on what style you want and how much you want to spend on it. For example, you could get a 2000 point army for around $350 CDN with a dragon, a spellsinger, a noble, and a treeman. (about 1000 pts for less than $150 CDN depending on equip) On the other hand, a hoard 2000pt army could easily cost $500. I'm not sure about you, but the cost of the army is just as important as its playing effectiveness for me. Regardless, I'd suggest at least 2 boxes of Glade Guard (thats 32- so about 3 units of 10, and then you can try converting 2 for some cheap nobles) and 2 boxes of Dryads (3 units of 8, or you can try onverting a branchwraith or two and still have 3 decent sized units). That would be around $160 CDN and around 672 points if everything with no upgrades or conversions. Its a pretty good basis for a 1000 or 2000 point army, too.

Well like you i also recently started a new wood elf army but the differnc is that i had previously collected a 2500 pt skaven army.I would recommend a mix of choosing guys on looks and value.I mean yes looks dont matter in the game but if you look at it that way we might as well use peices of paper as our models.So if i were you get ALOT of dryads and a healthy dose of glade gaurd.Get a mage to alter terrain and a few scouts to disrupt there lines.Move any trees in the way of the enemy infantry and then move you glade riders or wild riders through to hit there rear.So have fun and good luck on the wood elf army.
P.S.-WOOD ELVES RULE!
