Take:

-Maximum waywatchers. You don't need bodkins on your core troops when you have these skirmishing guys cutting through armor entirely. They're amazing so you want maximum.
-Maximum waystalkers + double shot bow. These guys own t3 wizards, and you can mow down level 4s in a turn or two. Really a nightmare to deal with
-Wild Riders are excellent in small 5-6 man units. THey're throwaways that hit very hard.

Drop the Glade Lord and consider a second level 4 with shadow or death. Moonstone + a Sisters of Thorn bunker can be used to teleport and get great purple sun opportunities.

Drop the Banner and Level 2.

Personally I like 2+ glade rider units. They score warmachines and are very hard to deal with once they appear from behind.

I dig one big unit of 20 or so archers that get the flaming banner.

Otherwise, listen to Jarrett. I am a big fan of wardancers as a bunker unit, itp plus skirmisher movement seems like a great unit to bunker down in. Just don't let them get fireballed.

I am planning on using Wardancers on my doubles list, because I did mad plaid on their sashes. I am not sure what else to use in Doubles though.

I think that the flaming banner is superfluous since you have access to Starfire arrows. Which are fucking great (whats up wounding DE RBTs on 5s!).


Jarrett's list is about as close as it gets to optimized. The only thing I would add is dual lvl4 either Death Shadow, High Shadow, or Heavens Shadow (preferably the first two) is also tasty.

Yeah, I also dig High Magic for WE. Lots of fun stuff you can do with wound prevention.
