Sylvaneth Tactics

WCSYL.png

The Sylvaneth are forest spirits of the Wanderer Aelfs. Led by the goddess Alarielle, the new treefolk were made from "Soulpods" she created. After Sigmar retreated to his realm, she considered herself a free agent, opposing Nurgle who seeks to claim the Realm of Life as his own. For some reason, all of Alarielle's soulpods became female Dryads and male Treekin, which makes sense only in the context of using existing models, but when looked at from a lore perspective Alarielle clearly had saved a LOT more female souls, and the only males she saved were the biggest. Lotta jokes that can be made here, hard to decide...

      • Ranged-Range 3-20"; Attacks 3; Strength 4; Damage 2/5
      • Unarmed-Range 1"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 1/3
    • Fighter Commentary - Comparing the Leader with a bow to the fighter (Kurnoth with a bow), you're paying 40 points, for 5 health and one extra attack on the range (a 3, instead of 2). Not worth it in my opinion. The Huntmaster with Scythe is a better buy for the same 240 pts.
