Wood Elves Summary - Whats know to date

There is a lot of conjecture out there at the moment on what will comprise the new Wood Elves. I've summarised below whats confirmed and what's not...

Army wide ASF
Access to all BRB lores, Dark Magic & High Magic
A new lore attribute for High & Dark
New unit type Stag Riders
New Waywatcher models
Druthu, new Treeman Special Character
Aralorn, new Wood Elves Special Character
Eternal Guard remain, with new models wielding what looks to be great weapons?
Forest Spirit rule is 6+ ward save, forest strider, ITP and magical attacks
New character class: Shadowdancer
Aralorn gets Murderess Prowess rule when fighting in a forest

Dryads are now Ranked units
New stags are forest spirits
Waywatchers/Eternal Guard Dual kit
Stag riders are a dual kit
No new Wardancers
Treeman move to special, Treeman Ancient to Rare


  1. I wouldn't say that the Forest Spirit ward save dropping to 6+ is conjecture, we know its the case for Durthu and it wouldn't make a lot of sense to give a SC a lesser ward save then other Forest Spirit

  2. "Treeman move to special, Treeman Ancient to Rare" - I really hope this is true. But seems weird that Treeman ancients should suddenly no longer be characters?
