New Wood Elf player saying hi. I am building a wood elf army to play but also to stretch my creative muscle. I decided I am going to do a large terrain model diorama that the army would plant in to including the free terrain we get. The army them is autumn so I am useing a lot of those colors. I am working on terraining up and planning phase. I am new to fantisy so i would like my army compedative as well as looking good. Do I build the Diorama only as 2,250 or do i go larger to 3000 or more so it looks good and I get play choices. Money is not the issue I am doing this while my GF is building her own army so this is to keep me ocupied until she is done with hers. If any one has done this before I would love to here from them about what worked and if they had any regrets.
at 2500 pts, you can field almost anything that you could think of, and to make a competative 300pt list you would see a lot of repatition in good choices. I would go for 3000 because then you could field 2 lord level character which are always good...but then, if money isnt a option, i dont see how 500 pt difference is a bad thing.

I love your WE enthusiasm. However, WE play very different to any other army I ever used so I would suggest for the statement of competitive you really need to make sure they are the army for you. As no amount of design can make a good army if you don't play them right.
If you want to use different builds and like experimenting with different lists, then go for 3000. As Toast said, then you can run multiple lords, lots of treemen, and so on. You can pretty much run one of every unit at that level, which would make a great diorama.
If money's not an issue and you've got the time, go for broke, I say. I have all the units, save a couple of lord models, and I have a great time trying out different builds.
I did mean the compedativeness in terms of good unit selection and options in games. I did not want to make units to small just for the sake of getting a little of every thing in a very small box.
On thing I was considering doing was to make a lord/hero for each unit I build and place in the diorma so it looks like a company champion or hero when in the scene as a whole. Redundant choices like the 3-4 10 man glade guard units would only get one painted that way.
Any other surgestions?
The waywatcher models are gorgeous when painted well and would look great in a diorama.
And I really like the glade riders and wild riders. The mounts have a very dynamic sculpt job. If I were doing your project, I'd include them early. Plus they're really good on the actual battlefield, so having them available early might be a good thing.
