Hello there. I'm an experianced Eldar/Chaos player from 40k, looking to get back into fantasy. I had a high Elves army a while back, but I haven't played fantasy since the days of Herohammer, and frankly, High Elves seem too rigid and too delicate - if wanted an infantry line, I'll play Empire and have more numbers. And the Wood Elf models rock.
so anyway, here is my question - For the points, is it better to go for a single level three over two level two wizards? Do you lose some magic defense for the effeciency of combining everything in one model? And are the killing efficiencies of having two kindred nobles plus the BSB worth having ones magical eggs in one basket? My list is going to be tilted more to the Asrai than the tree creatures - one unit of drayeds and a Treeman would be the high end of my plans for the tress (I'd love wild riders too much to ditch them. So very Celty...)
Thanks for any advice.
A Level 4 Spellweaver and two Level 2 Spellsingers cost precisely the same amount of points.
Spellweaver in comparison to two Singers:
+ Can use more dice
+ Has more Lores available
+ Takes only a single Character slot
+ Is guaranteed to have a more diverse spell selection
- Puts all magic power in a single To3 basket
- Can't cast multiple instances of the same spell without Calaingor's Stave
- Can only have a single Arcane Item (in addition to scrolls)
- Prevents you from having a Highborn or an Ancient
- Cannot be in multiple places at the same time
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
A spellweaver has a great magic item at his disposal that spellsingers don't: the wand of wych elm. Rerolling all dispel attempts is nice, but you'd need something like a lvl 1 branchwraith with a cluster of radiants (which I do recommend) to add more dispel dice to the pool.
Myself, hearing all the talk of new rules, I don't plan on using any significant magic in my list. I run a highborn alter, a noble alter, a branchwraith who's lvl 1 with radiants, and a BSB (to add rerolls for my two stubborn treemen).
On the other hand you can take a lvl 1 singer with two scrolls and the lvl 1 branchwraith with radiants for decent defense.
I rely on weathering magic and using the warhawk riders to eliminate enemy users.
Yay, my worry is how to avoid getting taken by magic - is gaining the additional die from the radients worth losing two scrolls from taking two caddys?
