Re: Wildwood Ranger Horde

Also keep in mind you can set them up in our free forest, choose the fear causing forest to give the WWR that extra attack against anyone they fight in the forest.

Used this trick a few days ago and it caught my opponent, and his Saurus warriors, completely off guard :P

Re: why are we so afraid of cannons?

From what I've seen on these forums, and the ensuing arguments I've had with people about cannons, is just one of those one off experiences where the opponent rolled really well and they lost a their dragon in a turn. Then every time after when they face one, fear of a 120 point cannon gets them to ...

Re: Wood Elves and Dwarfs Alliance 2600pts

Some poison shooting is always good to have in a list, but the places you could include a decent amount of poison arrows is on your glade guard. And since you will have such a strong offensive element to this combined list, you will be shooting through units sooner rather than later, so trueflight m...

Re: Flaming Sword of Ruin

Re: Sisters of the thorn

Regardless of specific circumstances where sisters would or would not be useful, the important takeaway is that they are pretty good at multiple roles. BUT, counting on them to fulfill more than one role while on the field of battle is relying too much on one unit, that can be focused down pretty qu...

Re: Sisters of the thorn

I just played another game with a 5 man unit of sisters yesterday at 1000 points and I take back what I said. They took out a unit of handgunners and a hellblaster volley gun while providing me with magic offense and defense for the entire game. I'll admit I was quite wrong about them >.<

Re: Quiting Warhammer

I partly disagree with your assessment. This is still a thinking person's game. Most of my wins are just because I out thought the opponent in the deployment and movement phases.

Re: A magicless Army

I'd say it would be effective. Wood Elves have phenomenal cavalry and infantry in this book, so more of that is never a bad idea. If I were to completely eschew taking wizard characters of any kind, I'd take a dragon and a large unit of sisters of the thorn to support it. But if I were to build no m...

Re: Sisters of the thorn

I've found that units of 5 aren't very effective. Between the possibility of losing sisters to miscasts, taking casualities from ranged attacks and the short range of their ranged attack, units of 5 just don't have the bulk to take a few causalities and still make a meaningful impact on the game.

As much as I would like to argue the contrary, Tree Kin are pretty useless on their own. The one time I had an extremely positive experience with them was when I ran them as 9 with a BSB. I also had a beastweaver in the army buffing my other units, so I put wildform on them, not really expecting too...

I would recommend a life weaver with crown of command and a 4++ ward save. It is incredible how much stubborn and either regen or +2/4 toughness does for these guys. Yeah defensive magic is what you want to go for when running a WWR horde. they are already pretty capable offensively. I placed a 3k ...

Is there anyway to leverage so many monsters in one army to throw your opponent off?

Unicorn Lone Weaver

Actually the problem is never really a cannonball, and it never really was. The problem is there is a slim chance that a cannonball might maybe possibly hit and kill something big outright, so everyone bases their decision making on something that probably won't happen. This leads me to believe you...
