Who in your eyes is the best Archer? (SBG)

Contenders in my eyes:

Legolas - 3 shots per turn or 1 auto-hit.
Aragorn - Free might each turn makes him a valuable contender for this title.
Vrasku - Crossbow, 2 shots per turn and 3 points of might.

Haldir could also cross into this titles contenders but I personally think the 3 listed above are all superior to Haldir in one way or another.

So anyone else you think is the best archer in the game (SBG)?

If not which of these 3 would you crown King Archer?

Legolas is just brilliant with the 3 shots, fits into the fluff too and admittedly makes him better than haldir.
I always like to take him and gimli on horesback , partially because i love the model and also because its a fantastic little combination.
Its like a small tank moving quickly towards your enemy,

As for the Gimli and Legolas on Horseback combo, I think it's a lovely little miniature but have to admit I've never tried it out in a game before.

Although Legolas+Gimli together won't count for the sake of this thread, I'm talking about Archer as a solo. Though it's a good point :)

although not mentioned Haldir, legolas is shit, he seems to be cursed to always miss at least 2 of his 3 shots, haldir though I've never yet missed a single shot with and always kill 1 thing each time he fires easily.

although I've had allot of luck with faramir as well

Playing in Cancon this year, Damrod (20pts), shoots though cover at a rider of Eorl, hits the rider (not the horse) and kills himn outright. Killed about triple his points value in one game.

Damrod is a great investment for any Gondor player I must admit.

Good call on mentioning Haldir aswell Stella. He's probably got the nicest Archer model in the game too (the armoured Haldir w/ bow).
