Went digging around the loft and found my old Wood Elf army. Played it through 6th, 7th and 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy. Can’t quite remember the army composition but I’m not sure I was very successful with it.
But thought I’d share all the same. Always liked Wood Elves. It was the tree daemons thing. I could be tempted to play some games with them again. Seem to recall having more luck in 6th/7th edition with these. Although I did have a cracking weekend at Warhammer World gaming in a 8th edition Throne of Skulls event. But I think the drinking aspect helped!
I find regiments of models rather charming. They have a distinct look about them. Very different from the skirmished AOS look. Again, my painting style has developed over time but this brighter and greener scheme is very suitable for the style that older editions of Warhammer Fantasy portrayed at the time. I enjoyed adding flock and grass to the tree spirits as I wanted them to look like scenery. I worked for Games Workshop at the time and wanted them to blend into one of the gaming tables I’d built for the shop.
There seems to a lot of talk surrounding The Old World game being made by Forge World and various Facebook Groups have popped up with people sharing older square based armies! So it will be interesting to see if my Wood Elves can be used and reimagined in the new game.
Please excuse the large quantity of pictures. I set up units as I was unpacking the case and snapped away!!
