Lists will change with the release of the new Dark Elves, we don't need the flaming banner against hydras anymore and the pendant is gone. However imo the couldron is better as it can be put into units. The Dark Elves now have access to all the magic lores and ASF which is awesome because the elves learned their magic before they split up and had civil wars according to the fluff (didn't they?) so that means wood elves might soon have access to more lores and ASF on the elf units. I would pretty much bet my life on Glade Guard getting the armour piercing special rule :D and I can guarantee that Eternal Guard will soon be the best unit in warhammer (cus I own 50 of the metal ones) with 2 attacks and lots of ranks and asf they will be piff to fuck.
With Sheffield Maul just around the corner today I will be submitting my list. It's as filthy as I think I can make a Wood Elf list but to be quite honest, why the hell not? I mean the filthiest WE list in the entire world will still only be the same power scale as the fluffiest empire list you could imagine. I will post my list up later after I have decided what to drop out of it and had a look to see if I have enough GG to actually create the list in the first place. The maul is going to be ranked thankfully. I know a lot of people want it to be unranked but at the end of the day people do like to have the games ranked, I wouldn't go to a tournament if it wasn't ranked because as much as I like playing for fun I also really like to be in a league table of hundreds of players, to me that makes it feel like more of a game than just a hobby.
I havn't had a game of wfb since tides of chaos...but I can't wait to meet up with everyone and have a few beers and roll some dice...better get painting these warhawk riders...ffs.
