I have £100 to spend on a beginner Wood Elf list.

What would you suggest I buy to build a 1000 odd point army?



I've worked out I can get

24 Glade Guard
12 Dryads
8 Glade Riders
12 Wardancers
A Spell Singer
A Lord model of some description.


I'd have £10 left. What could I get to supplement this?

Nothing much that will form a full unit. For £14 you could get a unit of 6 waywatchers :eek:k: but at that point, you could probably just get another plastic box of whatever you fancied.

I think the mounted lord model is about a tenner, so you could get that to add some punch to the glade riders.

Basically, for wood elves, you want lots of small units of glade guard archers and scouts. This way, if they get trapped in h2h, you dont lose all your shooting. Also, in smaller units they are more maneuvreable, which means you can take advantage of their bows being armour piercing at short range.

Supplement this with whatever other troops you deem necessary.

Oh yeah jez, you need a model of a wood so you can take advantage of the free wood you get as a wood elf player. This is really useful, esp when you can move it around with spellsingers. I shit you not. This is important.

It's a solid start, shouldn't be too difficult to expand from here. Waywatchers and a few more dryads next and i think your set.

I'd stick a treeman in there. not the GW one though (shudder)

Best one I've seen is Ultraforges. If it has to be GW I'd try to get an older one (unless they would allow a lotr ent?)
