PostSubject: Dark Elves and Wood Elves - A Balance Issue   Wed 3 Sep 2014 - 17:12

Hi everyone.

People at my club are up in arms about the stats and rules for the Dark Elves warband (From TC 12), as well as the suggested rules for the Wood Elves (Mordheimer.com)

Am I the only one who has a problem with models that are Movement 5, Initiative 6, Weapon Skills 5, Leadership 8+ for all, and Ballistic Skill 4... yet cost VERY little more than other warbands? ... and then get skills that in a sense, give them a 4+ Invulnerable Save. (Fey Quickness with Step Aside or Dodge)


Has anyone come up with a compromise or re-balance that evens things out?

Its taken you all long enough!   Very Happy
People have been complaining about those warbands (and the Shadow warriors) since the warbands were written.

I expect a search of the topic Dark Elves or Wood Elves would turn up a few topics on this forum.

The folks at Druchii.net did their own warband in response, though I'm not sure if there is a link on this forum.

Folks are writing wood elf warbands continually, though I am not sure that any of them are any better.  Again a search of this forum is recommended.

Their low toughness seems to hurt them against shooting warbands and the general high cost to replace heroes and henchmen

Everyone pretty much recognizes Elves of all kinds as being glass cannons. But they suffer against high toughness targets starting out, and Strength 4 tends to do them in pretty fast.
