Default Im thinking of starting..

Hey,
I play 40k, i wanna start fantasy because it seems a tad more tactical and engaging. If i were to start i would want a fairly shooty army but if i decide i like cc i could move with it. I was thinking either high elves, wood elves, or bretonians. I need some input as well as what i should get to start it off. Thanks

James

welcome to the fantasy world men. .

first off all what attacks you the most? here you have to similar but very diferent armies, high elfs and the inproved new wood elfs, between this to i stay with the wood elfs 100%, bretonia on the other hand is a cavalry army, most CC and movement, the wood elfs have good shooting and are more tactic, good speed as well. stay with wood elfs i'll say. it will be for both of what you are looking for.

i myself will say play dark elfs but seems not interest for you.

Wood elfs we'll be your choise plus the minis are really cool 8 and fills yous apecs perfectly i will like to help you on what minis to get but i still don't have their codex.

Good look on the hunt. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

GW have released a few nice models for the lustria campaign they are running concerning the high elves, ht mages look fantastic.

High elves have an alright CC, not wow, but the more specialised troops are very nasty. They have soom pretty fantastic accurate shooting, with a very nice bolt thrower. Highly magical, with access to potentially the best magical offence, it can be devestating for opponents.

Bad point are generally low T and S plus high points. You'll often be outnumbered.

Btw, Some people might agree, others wont, but I think the asur (high elves) have access to two of the best value for point characters going, teclis and tyrion.

Empire?? why do you say that? Granted handgunners are pretty good, but mortars and cannons have a tendancy to miss emtirely, and of course blow up.

I dont play them myself, but find that the combination of guessing the range combined with scatter and artillery dice means simply, pff, too unreliable for my tastes, give me a reaper bolt thrower any day, lol.

Elves!!!! Great choice! If you want shooty then go for Wood elves. The waywatchers have the equivilant of killing blow with their bows!!!! But for Magic and Calvery Go with the High elves, or Brets for the calvary.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
