Re: Warhammer Fantasy New Guy

Both armies are very strong (some consider them to be OP) and you could do well with either. Vampire Counts take a lot, and I mean A LOT, of planning and fiddling around, which can be annoying for players new and old. There isn't much you can do with VC aesthetically though, just lots and lots of sk...

Re: High Elves vs Wood Elves vs Lizardmen

Unfortunately, the Wood Elf player had to drop out, so it will probably just be Dinosaurs vs Magical Weaklings. All of the characters have maxed out on various magic items (Book of Hoeth, Preservation, DS, and Crown of Command being some of them) and they would bunker together in the Spearmen group....

Re: 2000 High Elves army list 8th

I suggest (just from experience) getting the two Bolt Throwers as apposed to getting more troops or chariots. I've never been able to use Tiranoc Chariots well, 5 more Phoenix Guard won't get their points back, and 5 more spearmen will have virtually no effect on the game. A noble decked out for com...

High Elves vs Wood Elves vs Lizardmen

Hello my fabulous fellow Nerds! Soon I will be playing a 1v1v1 battle as High Elves. The opponents will be an experienced Lizardmen player, and a Vampire player using Wood Elves for the first time. We are going to be playing on an oversized 5' x 9' table, so lots of room to maneuver even with 3 armi...

Humans or Wood Elves? AoS

Hey guys! I'll get right to it. Last Christmas I received some Wood Elf Glade Guard, bought the rulebook, and was given some Wild Riders. With Age of Sigmar coming out, I'd like to start buying some more Wood Elf models. However, my brother wants us to start a mixed Human army that we would share. W...

Re: New To Fantasy

High Elves are a good army, but they are hard to start playing as. I've played for about 2 years as HElves and its taken me that long to start winning more than 5% of the time. Some tips for collecting: Cavalry are good for filling core, as they are the same in $$$ (at least, in america) but more ex...

Re: vampire army list

One does not simply break a Vampire army's battle line. I agree with pretty much everyone, get more Core, less heroes, maybe 2 units of wolves instead of those knights, magic will shred them, artillery will shred them, and other cavalry/chariots/monsters charging will shred them. Go for more, cheap ...

Re: Wood elves 2400pts

Ditch the Eagles, maybe more Waywatchers instead. Also, go with Shadow, Life, or BEASTS. Turn those Tree Kin into TREEMEN with Wyssans. Also, try some of the little heroes that can be specialized. Branchwraiths, Shadowsancers, Waystalkers, all are good at little tasks in a 1500+ game. Just experimen...

Re: Elf Characters

Thanks for the advice! I unfortunately do not play with End Times rules yet, as I won't buy them with 9th somewhere around the corner. I will try out the glittering scales/fencers blades combo, Azeebo, especially since Wood Elves have little armor anyways. Any advice on other styled characters would...

Elf Characters

Hey everyone, I'm looking for advice on Elf Characters, particularly tanks. I play High Elves and Wood Elves, and I usually face Dwarfs and Lizardmen. I've noticed how effective it is when my opponent throws a well made tank (Oldblood or Lord, typically) at me. I was wondering if it is possible to m...

Re: Should I buy Wood Elves?

Haha, I have used 1d4chan, and it was helpful with High Elves, but not always reliable for other armies. Thanks for the advice, everyone. I have purchased the book, mainly for fun, but they do seem like an awesome army. I will check out asrai.org, thanks for the suggestion!

Should I buy Wood Elves?

I've been thinking about buying the Wood Elf Army Book, and maybe even collecting. It wouldn't be serious, and I probably wouldn't buy much, but checking out their book and maybe having some battles using proxies sounds like it would be fun. Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not the Wood Elv...

Re: New Fantasy Lizardmen player 750pt List help.

Cold One cavalry are very good, and I hate them. They wreck me so much. But, they are magnets, and I mean MAGNETS. They are always the first thing to die in my opponent's army, so make sure they are protected. Do you have a Battle Standard Bearer? Maybe give that to the Oldblood, as he is pretty muc...
