Default WFB: Wood Elves Rumors NOW WITH PICTURES

From Faeit212:

Wood Elves have a massive update coming. And they will be fine in the current and next edition with it.
I expect them late spring 2014.

Some of what Ive heard is:
Still a major guerrilla tactics army. Skirmishers are still prevalent.

New giant Treekin dual unit.

New Stag Monstrous Cavalry unit.

Best archers in the game.

Dryads having abilities to manipulate enemy unit structure.

New mpp wild rider kit

New mpp wardancer/waywatcher kit

Wardancers causing rank bonus to work against enemy.

New hawkriders kit.

WE wizards (spellsingers) have spells that manipulate environment, including making a new grove of trees and one causing an enemy unit to enter combat with the ground/terrain

WE have significant benefits within woods both stationary and moving.

Tree units able to start hidden in wooded terrain.
UPDATE: Pictures of the second week wave of models:

Oh hay, guys, and girls, welcome to the museum of best guesses, today, we'll be showcasing some of the work of the finest best guessing around...

No, seriously, this stuff is tantamount to wishlisting, or inferring from previous releases.

1; Still skirmishing army. Whoop-de-do, no other army has changed focus. Doesn't mean that the armies are actually any good at what they do; Ogre Bulls, for example, or Tomb King Phalanxes are poor choices compared.

2; Giant Treekin Unit; either it's Treeman, or Treekin, not sure what the Giant is doing, unless it's referring to new pieces, in which case it's becoming the "new cool" thing to suddenly allow Monstrous Infantry to come with multiple options, because Vampires and Tomb Kings CERTAINLY didn't come up with that idea.

3; Stag Monstrous Cavalry; insert obligatory Monstrous Cavalry here. Like that was a surprise guess, considering how useless it is at the moment.

4; Best archers in the game; that's not changed.

5; Abilities to affect unit structure, not got a scooby what that means, unless they are actually the ability to Disrupt when used in small numbers.

6; An old metal unit becoming plastic with a new codex, like that's new.

7; New wardancers/waywatchers; see above

8; Wardancers rules; two units doing the same thing? DOUBT IT.

9; new warhawk kits; well there's a surprise

10; spellsingers get a unique lore which does similar things to what it does currently? VERY insightful.

11; Wood Elves have benefits in woods; yay. NEver would've guessed that.

12; Tree Units can start hidden in wooden terrain. Just like now. Yay.

Don't get me wrong, I like that Wood Elves are getting updated. I just feel like Mystic Meg could've read that in the frown lines on my ballsack for all the "rumours" it provided.

i have to agree with sad nut sacked friend Vaz, someone has really phoned that set of rumours in, thats not to say its wrong, all of those rumoured units are pretty much required for the army as it stands, but lack of resin characters and a plastic hero is shouting wishlist to me.

Though to be honest a new army book and litterally anything new for this army would be a step in the right direction, that would also only leave the poor Brets as the sad army with no love.

Have no interest in WE specifically, but it's nice to see GW APPARENTLY working on them. It gives me hope for Brets. :-)

Hi Guys, new to the forum but a long time Wood Elves player.

The rumour is that the Wood Elves release is May 2014 and I have found some potential rules and releases translated from a Spanish forum, not sure about the accuracy but here goes:

Army wide ASF ( elves only )
- Hawkeye ( only elves , reroll one to hit, single shots)
- Spirit of the Forest ( unstable magical attacks, hatred , 5 + ward save , harmony with the forest )
- Elven Bow ( f4 , rapid fire , extra row )
- Saearath ( cc weapon , +1 Strength , + 1 SEspecial , spears )
- Explorers / Ambushers ( NDT : not what it is )

Forest Guard : Elvish Bow , Hawkeye
Eternal Guard : f4 , Saearath , L8
Light Knights : same
Driades : forms of combat .
Riders Halcon : Elven Bow , Hawk Eye , launches
Kournous Riders : Spirit of the forest, Saearath , L8 , F4 , A2 ( idk if directly go deer)
Arboreal : Spirit of the forest , as
Banshees : Spirit of the forest, Lamento ( breath attack ) , terror .
Eagle Claws : same
Wardancer : same , except for some changes that do not know .
Forest : Forest Spirit , Bow Elvish .
Men Tree: Like I
Millennial choleric : Hate Eternal , and nose to more

And releases

Man Megacaja Tree (Giant) / Durtu / Millennium cashflow
- Great Dragon Box Forest / Lord of the Forest / Sisters of Twilight
- Safety in Deer Forest Kournous
- Safety Kournous Riders (apparently nothing to do with the look of today, more fey and spiritual)
- Safety Wardancer / Forest
- Riders Box Falcon / Eagle Claws
- Safety Eternal Guard / Forest Banshees
- Blister Cantor of Trees
- Blister Lord of Forests
- Blister Skaw the falconer
same thing form Ajota from the Spanish Eye of Terror forums

but Ajota said (i thnik) that Wood Elves are in "april/may".

Hmmm not too many surprises there, the usual 2 variations on a unit to justify putting out a dual unit kit in the hopes to sell more kits.

FUCKING AWESOME to see them getting some love though. Although Banshee's? I thought that were a VC unit? Could that be a translation snafu?

Skaw the Falconer is an already established character isn't he?

im happy Wood Elves are getting updated, not because I particularly want to play them, seeing as I play the worst army to get allies in Fantasy (dark Elves) but Ive always been more of a bow Person over crossbows, so i might end up making a squad or two of Dark Elf bowmen out of the new WE models when they come out.

Yes, Skaw the Falconer was a character the edition before this one.

There are 2 rules to being a success in life:
1) Never give out all the information
