So with a title like that can you guess what happened? I said before that a gun line would remove the list from the field and the Wood Elves proved this to be completely and disastrously correct. At least in the second game the Executioners got to make Hamish wet himself slightly. However the ability to not fail your 3++ saves is so annoying, surely putting 20 wounds on him over 3 rounds would do something other than 1 wound but nooooooo.
So what would i change in the list for next time...
I: Drop the shooting
Dark elves cant compete with some as a shooting list, and it just doesn't have the punch without a shadow witch to back it up. So im gonna drop the large unit of riders and make the large shade smaller.
II: More hitty
With the riders dropped i think dropping the Bleakswords to bring a large unit of corsairs will be necessary. I'm not going to go for the witches as you need to invest a shiteload of points into them to keep them alive and their harder to control (i both love and hate frenzy on my savages). The 4+ armour and 2 attacks should be good enough.
III: More dakka
Another bolt thrower. Jesus Christ why didn't i do it before. Out ranging wood elves will be so fun.
i think i will bring some cold ones next time. I6 and lances are going to make problems for some, i just have to manage the stupidity somehow...
those are my thoughts. Anything people reckon i missed?
