Nice catch @Asmodeus ;) I'll have to make do with the worst choices in core then :)
Guess that means our core isn't as bad as some players think!

Side note, you have to use minimum core. Can't have you fielding a whole army of zombies or skeletons!

That actually would work too!

Obnoxious sidenote bordering on thread spam for those who are wondering:

I fielded in a competitive game 100 zombie unit couple months ago. It was a total pain in the ass for the Warriors of Chaos player I was facing. He couldn't kill the unit. It survived the whole game taking a beating from a tooled up Daemon Prince and his bros.

Whoa, mate! I said I didn't want a list thT would make people rage quit ;-)

I can work this, though. Switching some GR for GG.

Not a fan of bow of Loren + Hail of Doom BSBs?

I used to field a four man cube of tree kin but asrai.org said I was nuts, lol

What is wrong with the Tree Kin Cube? I just thought it would be nice in this list so you could hold a unit for a round or two.

Sure, Bow of Loren+ Hail of Doom is nice, I tried to get it in there but decided to go with better saves for the bsb since my plan was to get into CC with him and the Wild Riders. And sorry, I didn't mean to make a list that forces rage quits :D

Nice work leveraging Vlad and Isabella and the batswarms! Played smart that list could cause headaches and even real damage with the blood knights. Better than I expected. Nice work!

We all should try playing it and then report back if we can win with it.

Asrai.org has trouble with the new tactics their last book introduced. Good example is the dismissal of dryads or combat blitz lists focused on using sisters to support wild riders. Wood elves can play very shock and awe combat focus now and many players don't seem willing to experiment to fine tune those options. I support your treekin cube!

"I support your treekin cube!" - Best quote in a long time! Should be a bumpersticker.
It seems to me that the new WE can make some really hardhitting blitz-lists, but the community is kind of stuck in the old way of playing WE, just like with Dwarfs - IMO.

Glad you think I came out on top with that insane challenge of yours. If I weren't going to tournaments at the moment I would definitely try it out but I'm trying to keep my game sharp these days :)

I agree. Stick that in the little quote-y quote machine and attribute it to me. I'd do it but I don't want to look self-absorbed or vain :tongue:

we have a system now days for adding quotes to the generator, it is subject to approval but it's there.

"Quotations -> Add a Quotation"


*Reads Sun King's Yellow/ Red list* *Shifty eyes* That totally isn't more or less a list I've run on one or two occasions :innocent:

Here is my challenge for you:

Pure VC list and best close combat damage per model ratio possible (including screams, and buff effects but damage from spells will not count).

For damage calculation use: Enemy WS 4, enemy T4 enemy save 5+

Lol @Lynks ! "You're braver than I thought" to quote Princess Leia :D How did it perform? What is it's strengths and drawbacks? Btw. There is no red units in the list :D

Well, it was certainly less effective and less memorable than my curb stomp list. It didn't do too poorly but that might have been because it was against brettonians and not a lot of non-core can stand a charge from 10 blood knights :tongue:. Having said that literally everything else was just dead weight

As you were aware, I had a challenge for you.
Both a 2400 point and 4000 point list.

Undead Legions :
- 50% Lords/Heroes
- No Khaine Magic

Please include the following in the list :
- Duo Mortis Engines
- Casket of Souls

However, no Zombies!
Oh, one more thing to spice things up.
By all means, feel free to include a vampire Lord (or perhaps even 2!) Though if possible, try to avoid the ogre blade run-of-the-mill VL (sword of bloodshed, perhaps?)

Have fun! :)

I was trying to fit two Lords in but I felt the list would struggle to bring strong units to the table with so many points invested in rare and lords. This is what I came up with:

Lord
Vlad, Mortarch of Shadow, 3 Levels of Death (hoping for Doom and Darkness)

Heroes:
Banshee
Banshee
Banshee
Banshee

Core:
5 DW
5 DW
5 DW
50 Skeleton Warriors (VC): FC, Screaming Banner, Spears
42 Skeletons Warriors (TK): FC [Back-up bunker for Vlad]

Special:
4 Harbingers [Keep them close to the Engines and they become epic in CC]

Rare:
Mortis Engine
Mortis Engine
Casket of Souls [Combine with Vlad for most effectiveness]

Total points: 2398
