with this new warhammer campaign this summer and rumours of all the major races getting a special character (certainly hope we arnt getting left out!) to go with it Im just wondering what other wood elf players would like to see regarding a new character piece.
Some obvious ones of course Ariel? an updated skraw the falconer? a Durthu you could also use as a treeman ancient? Scarloc? Naeith the phrophetess? Or maybe an entirely new concept?
Who would be top of your list and why?
well those are all good ideas, but we already have Ariel/ Skaw up on the GW website, but what i REALLY want to see is some sort of wardancer character. The real idea behind this would be that he/she would also change the army choices like Orion.
i pretty much just want a wardancer core.
yea the Ariel and skaw figures suck though. and are they conversions or classic figures anyway?
Anyway, a wardancer figure would be great. In the timeline is there not some mention of a specific female wardancer that does something? cant remember what exactly, but there is definatly scope to develop that.
Personally I think the wood elf list really lacks characters, i mean dont get me wrong the ones there are great but they are all so super powerful and restrictive in terms of army selection that they end up just being groovy pieces on the shelf. Some less powerful but equally groovy characters would be extremely usefull.
I'd love to have a new model for Skaw as I've found him really effective in combat. But as far as a new character goes, I'd love a wardancer or wild rider special character, though I don't see the latter happening.
What I don't want is a Waywatcher special character. :x
I can see it now...Waywatcher character has +1 bonus to soil his camouflage loin cloth. Maybe he will have a magic dirk of "You can kill me anytime you please, but tell me mum I loved her." :tongue:
What seems realistic is some sort of kingly figure. It seems all the races have great leaders in their special character section, but WEs just have quirky figures that are generally outsiders to regular WE society. Orion, who doesn't care who he kills, human or elf. Aerial who shows up, what, just one season? Durthu who appears only in times of the direst need. Skaw, who, well I don't know what Skaw does. Then there's the twin sisters, but being on a dragon eats up all the points.
There needs to be a "regular" WE special character IMO.
I would like to see a WD lord or noble I think the idea of a wardancer core unit army would be cool.
Skaw would be sweet.
What about a Spellweaver on a unicorn?
I can't believe I am hearing this "regular" talk. The wood elves aren't supposed the be a representation of a high fiber diet. We are the unpredictable defenders of Athel Loren. You have been spending to much time with those Dwarves.:tongue:
I don't know why you believe the WE don't have a great leader. Orion is the embodiement of the WE god of the hunt. He returns every summer to lead the WE to battle. Ariel give us direction year round. She embodies the forest and helps to heal it after attack. Why does Durthu need to hang around all the time. If he is only needed when things go bad, let him go chill until he is needed. Skaw is the fonzy of the WE nation, nuff said. The sisters can always ride a Great Eagle if you are concerned about the points.
Basically it seems to me that getting a good list to work with Orion is nearly impossible as all your gladegaurd, scouts and eternal gaurd start gobbling up special slots and to compensate your cool but stupidly expensive wild riders become core.
Drycha is sweet but who in their right mind actually wants to field a complete forest spirit army, i mean once in a while for fun maybe...
Then the sisters, cool but cant be the army general anyway!!!!!
If you ask me thats a serious lack of characters.
Cheaper, interesting, not neccesarily can kill anything that moves, but with good fluff and something new and unusual to add to the game. A few Bugman/Luthor Huss/ Snarsnik type characters, thats what WE seriously lack. Role on Nemesis crown and lets hope and pray!!!
