High Elves throw down with Wood Elves in this 750pt battle!
Here is the Wood Elf roster!
|Lords and Heros|
|Noble||Hail of Doom Arrow. Light Armor||1||102|
The High Elves brought:
Noble with Dragon Armor, Steed, Shield, Hand Weapon
Sword Masters x 15: Leader
Spearmen x 30: Leader
The game was a lot of fun, but Hazel had his Noble on his own and against a shooty Wood Elf army like mine, that is rough as I was able to get a short range volley off on him with two units of Glade Guard and my Noble with Hail of Doom Arrow, which smoked him.
Hazel recovered though and made a long charge with Spearmen. Although they took a lot of fire as they came in, they did a lot of damage and wiped out an Archer unit, but were in turn ground down by a unit of Dryads who came in on the flank.
A separate unit of Dryads flew up field to take out the Boltthrower.
The rest of the Wood Elves had their hands full dealing with the Swordmasters. Those guys are tough! With Great Weapons, WS 6 and Always Strikes First, they were mulching me! The only thing that saved my butt was my Ward Saves on my Dryads, my Nobles Leadership and a super lucky Insane Heroism roll on a unit of Archers that held the Swordmasters up a turn longer than they had any right to, allowing me to get a flank and rear charge with my remaining Dryads, mulching them Swordmasters to the man and earning the Wood Elves the wipe out victory!
Hazel said he’d never leave his Noble out on his own again, which is a smart play.
Great game and the Woodies march on to another victory! Oh they are good but I have a feeling when magic becomes more prevalent I will be up the creek without a paddle!
