Any Wood Elf Players Out There?
My very first army ever in any GW system was Wood Elves. I never owned a ton of models because I switched over to Lizardmen after I saw that they were dinosaurs led by bloated space-toads that looked like the end boss of Mario 2. At least the Slann used to look like Wart, the new ones are pretty nice models*. Anyway, with 8th edition around the corner I'm pretty much going to start playing Fantasy again depending on what they do with the rules. I am still torn between Lizardmen and Wood Elves (though in my typical fashion I'll probably play both).
What I want to know is how are the Wood Elves doing? Are they worth getting into at this point or should I wait for an update? Also, if I do decide to start playing them what should be my first purchase (besides the book)?
*Seriously, on a side note, what was the deal with the old metal Slann model? That thing fell apart so easily. I was constantly re-gluing the chair to the bearers. And the banners would break off no matter how I stored them. Plus, he didn't even fit properly in a unit of Temple Guard. The double cavalry bases just didn't fit with the other bases. Furthermore, he looks like he has indigestion, probably because Mario was throwing vegetables at him.
