Hello all,

Let me start by saying I am new to Warhammer, a few of my friends play so thought I would give it a try.

I have decided on wood elves, I love the lore about them and the characters + I think the models are amazing so I thought I would try and put an army together.

Please be honest and let me know what you think and all advise is welcome.

Here goes:

Lord - 225pt
Spellweaver (life magic) - 185pt
- level 4 wizard - 35pt
- Asari longbow - 5pt

Hero - 120pt
Spellsinger - 80pt
- Level 2 Wizard - 35pt
- Asari Longbow - 5pt

Core - 558pt
Glade Guard x 9 - 108pt
- Swiftshiber Arrows - 36pt

Glade Guard x 9 - 108pt
- Swiftshiber Arrows - 36pt

Eternal Guard x20 - 220
- Shields - 20
- Full Command - 30

Special - 645pt
Warhalk Riders x3 - 135pt
- Wind Rider - 10pt

Warhalk Riders x3 - 135pt
- Wind Rider - 10pt

Wild Riders x10 - 260pt
- Shields - 20pt
- Full Command - 30pt
- Magic Standard Blade (Armour Piercing) - 45pt

Rare - 450pt
Treeman - 225pt

TOTAL = 1998pt

Looking forward to your thoughts and comments..

Ok start here, longbow isnt that great on her...but if you have the points then why not.

Hero - 120pt
Spellsinger - 80pt
- Level 2 Wizard - 35pt
- Asari Longbow - 5pt
Again same comment with the bow, i'd suggest running shadow here as it benifits the elven races so well.

Core - 558pt
Glade Guard x 9 - 108pt
- Swiftshiber Arrows - 36pt

Glade Guard x 9 - 108pt
- Swiftshiber Arrows - 36pt
Both of these units are 1 short as they are 10+ units. Your statisitically better taking either trueflight or hagbane arrows for most situations.

Eternal Guard x20 - 220
- Shields - 20
- Full Command - 30
I'm a fan of the 20 man EG unit. Its not super killy but should be enough to hold and dely for a flank charge.

Special - 645pt
Warhalk Riders x3 - 135pt
- Wind Rider - 10pt

Warhalk Riders x3 - 135pt
- Wind Rider - 10pt

For their price i'm not so sure these guys are worth it, but they look cool which is always a factor in my book. If you are looking to run them then save the points on the wind riders, you wont need the unit champ here.

Wild Riders x10 - 260pt
- Shields - 20pt
- Full Command - 30pt
- Magic Standard Blade (Armour Piercing) - 45pt
Firstly these guys have armour piercing already so thats points saved. Again i dont think the unit champion is really of much use here. I'd suggest 2 units of 5 becuase the 2nd rank wont get the massive 3 attacks each on the charge which is this units real killing power.

Rare - 450pt
Treeman - 225pt

Treeman - 225pt
If your taking treemen then 2 is a pretty safe bet. Especially with all the flying and fast cav you have for cannon hunting.

For a first list its pretty solid. Core feels a little lacking and i think you'd be relying on the wild riders alot in this list as it is.

Army lists shouldn't show itemised points cost. Just the whole cost of a squad with all upgrades.

Other than that I agree with SteaknChips on most points. But maybe try and get a BSB with Hail of doom arrow. His free shot on the general is pretty fun too.

OK, thank you for your input, I have slightly redesigned the army taking what you have said into account. I am hoping this one is a little more solid although any feedback is appreciated - good or bad :)

And I have removed the itemisation points cost, I didn't know you shouldn't do that so I apologise.

Here goes:

Lord - 220pt
Spellweaver (life magic) - 220pt
- level 4 wizard

Hero - 115pt
Spellsinger (shadow Magic) - 115pt
- Level 2 Wizard

Core - 755pt
Glade Guard x 10 - 150pt
- Hagsbane Arrows

Eternal Guard x20 - 305pt
- Shields

This comes in at 2015 points (the people I play with allow a 1% le-way on points). hopefully a little more solid than before.

I look forward to your reply's.
