WE and DE face-off

Not a whole ton to say, except that everything died. The Cauldron allowed a stupid amount of saves on the hydra, who, with the help of the chariot, saw off my Highborn and Dragon. (I got revenge on the hydra, dealing the last few wounds with my mounted Noble). I shot the manticore up right before he finally made it to me, but the guy riding it scared a whole unit of Glade Guard off the board, and followed them because he was so pissed.

We both had inbetween 650 and 700 left after 6 turns. It was one of the most enjoyable and hard fought games of Fantasy I've played. Here's the list I used, followed by end-game pics. Hopefully Larry will post his for everyone to check out. Hope you guys/gals enjoy this mini-report! (more pics next time - I get distracted by playing lol)

Note: We are aware that Lords are used at 2k and above, but allow them now because I am still working towards owning the models I need.

very nice. With your wood elf army, one of my fave things to do is take a larger than normal block of Glade Guard with Standard bearere and banner of Aenach. With their ability to retreat and fire, they can do lots of damage towards deadly enemies as they zapproach, and then even get off that one last shot the opponent might not expect.

Looks like fun was had, keep it rolling

I haven't looked into much of the wargear, as most of it seems over-costed. Somehow I missed that one I'll check it out.
