8th Edition Wood Elf Tactica

Post by godswearhats »

I'm trying to compile a list of tactica and discussions that are truly valuable for the 8th edition Wood Elf player. This should be a list of great articles and discussions which provide a fantastic base of knowledge for every player, whether new or seasoned. I've searched through the site and come up with a starting list. Anything with a question mark :question: is the best I could find: not really a tactica, but worth reading. It may need updating or more focus, or could provide a good basis for a solid tactica. You'll see a lot of question marks!

Anything with a :thumbsdown: currently has no up to date articles or tactica that I could find. Anything with a :thumbsup: has been promoted to the LEAF already. Nice job!

Please volunteer to write anything that is :thumbsdown: or :question:, or recommend a thread that already exists. Also, if you think there is a great article or thread that belongs in here, maybe in a sub-section I don't have yet, please tell me. This list is imperfect, and always will be, but let's strive for the best.

Thanks,
~gwh

It will be of use to us if you ask the dumb questions when you have them and the answer is not obvious. This will help us in figuring out what kind of guides need to be written (+ you learn stuffs)

Akaba: I knew about the Ulthuan tactica on Eagles but I think we need a Wood Elf specific one.

brilliant stuff. It will be very useful when it grows and becomes more and more complete. I'm sadly too inexperienced to contribute with articles. But my games count is increasing and someday I might write a tactica of my own to be included here.. :)

very nice initiative gwh.

Is there anyone who plays another army (or against another army a lot) who would like to write a tactica vs them? Especially the ones we have no discussions for.

I'm looking @popisdead for a Beastman one maybe :-) ? Any other takers?

I run dwarfs as my secondary, but their new book is allegedly less than a month away. So i will refrain from making a tactica on them until after I get some games under my belt

Tomb kings is my main army, so maybe when I get some more games under my belt with wood elves I could help with an article against them. If nobody else tackles it first of course.

That would be sweet! I've never faced them, so I'd be very interested in reading it myself.

A few years ago when the leaf was fairly dormant I talked to Beither about it and wrote something up but it stayed in draft mode.

I will go looking for it, maybe send it along.
