Whispers of Wood Elves are coming, and with it, saying that they very well could be added to our release list for Warhammer Fantasy. After all I know that Wood Elves are one of those armies that really could use an update, and are an army that I myself am interested in.

Please remember that these are rumors.

Wood Elves have a massive update coming. And they will be fine in the current and next edition with it.
I expect them late spring 2014.

Some of what Ive heard is:
Still a major guerrilla tactics army. Skirmishers are still prevalent.

New giant Treekin dual unit.

New Stag Monstrous Cavalry unit.

Best archers in the game.

Dryads having abilities to manipulate enemy unit structure.

New mpp wild rider kit

New mpp wardancer/waywatcher kit

Wardancers causing rank bonus to work against enemy.

New hawkriders kit.

WE wizards (spellsingers) have spells that manipulate environment, including making a new grove of trees and one causing an enemy unit to enter combat with the ground/terrain

WE have significant benefits within woods both stationary and moving.

Tree units able to start hidden in wooded terrain.


  1. Being a very long time WE player I can't wait, be too long.

  2. Who is still believing Stickmonkey rumours? None of his "predictions" ever became true...

    1. Your confusing rumours with facts.

      Rumours are like gossip, based on facts at the time but becoming distorted or embellished with each telling. What may have been true at the time, may now not be. Or what was said at the time, may be less than what is being stated now.

      Facts are like...em...facts. Supported by physical, or in this case visual, evidence that what is stated does in deed exist. Why did I say visual? Because Lizardmen were just rumours until we saw the leaked pictures, at which point it was fact.

    2. Thamos, I think the point you are missing is that (most people at least) prefer rumours that are actually likely to materialise into facts later.

      Stick Monkey's 'rumours' repeatedly (for whatever reason) fail to materialise into facts, therefore a of people are coming to the conclusion that either he is lying, being lied to, or his sources are so early on in the chain that his info is wrong.

      In the recent Eldar release (among other things) he said new jet bike models, new plastic aspects, and no wraith knight.) All of which were wrong.

    3. True; I myself was disappointed why no plastic Furies or Flying Monstrous Creatures appeared for Chaos Daemons. Can't remember who was responsible for the rumours though. Give Natfka some credit though. I doubt he'd post made up rumours from a known liar.

      My GUESS is that stickmonkey is "being lied to, or his sources are so early on in the chain."

      Which I believe was the point I was actually making. Do people actually read comments or do they just glance over them?

      You're the second person to react to a comment without realising you're complaint is unfounded. Here is my point in kiddy language:

      Rumours are like gossip.
      Gossip starts as a truth.
      With each telling, the truth sounds different until it becomes wrong.
      But still the gossip continues and others add their point of view.
      Before long "I ate an orange and a tomatoe" becomes "The sun has turned me orange and I'm putting ketchup on my skin to avoid skin cancer."

      Facts can be proven.
      Here's a photograph of me peeling an orange.
      Here's another of me biting into it.

      Class dismissed.

    4. Good Grief, bad day at the office old chap? No need to be quite so adversarial!

      I was merely pointing out, that the original poster (who you reacted to with an unfounded complaint) was merely suggesting that Stickmonkey's rumours/facts/whatever you want to call them are often ultimately incorrect.

      You started going on about the difference between rumour and fact... which is not what the original post was complaining about. The issue is wether or not these rumours/facts come to fruition.

      Furthermore "Kiddy Language" and "Class Dismissed" - I can only assume you are trying to provoke an argument. Just FYI, there isnt one to be had :/

    5. That wasn't a complaint.

      I was only pointing out that just because things that are rumoured don't always work out, it is not always the fault of the person giving the rumour.

      The "kiddy language" was more my frustration.

      Just used to normal face to face conversation and need to remember you can't see my facial expressions or hear my tone of voice, otherwise you would have known I was actually being quite friendly when I replied to Stahly.

    6. As would you, when you read my initial reply.

  3. Don't forget too that Wood Elves are big in the upcoming 2nd Hobbit movie so maybe GW sees some possible commercial advantages off that.

  4. "Best archers in the game." If they can beat Maiden Guard then I will be impressed.

    1. It will be in the number and variety of missile units they can field; not just one unit in particular.

  5. Please... no weird leaf-thingy on their heads... please (Fingers crossed, fingers crossed!)

  6. Replies
    1. Fewer and fewer people from the looks of it. Then again you can only go so far claiming big things like the 'summer of fliers' and 'greater connectivity between GW and Forgeworld' that turns out to be complete cobblers, before people catch on that you're most likely just a billy bullshitter.

  7. Already more rumors than we got for Lizardmen in total lol

  8. 2 be best archers they'd need to have no penaltys to beat Those pesky new dwarf crossbows. :-)
