Dear All Woodys

I just traded my Witch hunter army to a full grown Woody army with the expetions of Zero Erternal Guards.

So I joined a tournament in my local game shop, where the majority of the players, play Cheese style to prevent this the Game Shop have come up with a list of restrictions
Here are the Rules
Rules for "Who needs big armies!? - Reloaded" turnering #2
1250 points
Fully painted Armys(Including bases)
Max 250 points on Hero choices (inclusiv magic items, mounts og oher ecuipment)
Max 300 points in totall between Special and Rare choices
Max 50 points on magic items/gifts/spites/vampire powers/Chaos gifts/Ogre Big names/gifts of Khaine (This includes magic banners)
Max 2 spells a Turn(inclusiv bound spells) - This means the top limiits of your power dice still have no limit but only 2 spells a turn, no matter how many power diceĀ“s you have.

Wood Elves
Max 2 Skirmish units (Minus: Warhawk Riders and Waywatchers)
Max 2 units med ranged attacks (Minus: Glade Riders, Warhawks, Heroes uden Hail of Doom arrow and Waywatchers)


So my plea is THE [censored] I DO WITH THIS ? I have been looking at this forum for some time.

Do any have any links or hardcore suggestion to an all around turny army?

Sincere JAWZ

I have changed the Hero Choice to 250.

Is the minus next to the wood elf restrictions the things affected by the restrictions or the things excluded form the restrictions?

My 1000 point tourny list is:

Noble on GE with HotH, HoDA, spear, shield, la. 181

2 x 12 GG 288
2 x 5 GR, mus 258
2 x 3 WHR 240
1 x GE 50

The character can be changed to:

Noble on steed, with HoDA, spear, shield, la, 133
290 Special and Rare combined.
30 points magic items, spites....
2 units of med range attack
0 skirmishers.


That leaves 281 points.

Add 23 Dryads in 2 units. This is not especially effcient, but could be very annoying.

Add 2 x 10 Dryads 240, your two units of skirmishers, and add 3 GG and a musician.

Thers are otehr possibilities, adding more GR too.

With nearly every every one with a bow and core skirmishers, these rules make it hard for WE. You are practically compelled to buy 2 units each of GG, GR, and Dryads, and some of these units need to be larger than is usually considered efficient. You MUST spend 1250 - 140 - 300 = 810 points on core and can have only 6 units unless you have a lot of GR. (6 x 5, mus) Even fielding EG won't hwlp because they must be Specials in this army.

It is impossible to field a legal TK army.
