I had an idea for a cheap unit that would make sense in the high elf army.  Since High Elves are more regimented and organized than their cousins the Wood Elves, perhaps they would have kennels with trained Cooshie (Elven dogs).

Cooshie Pack

(3) 6/5 2/2  R-O  C-13 M-5  3G/2Y/2R

Give them the Wolfkin ability (+3 def., +2 vs. routing, reform)

Woof, Woof...

Cool idea, but I think we can come up with a better name for the unit than that.  Yeah yeah yeah, I know the old D&D Coshies.  But I think think we should aim for something along the lines of Elf Hounds, Eldar Hounds... something like that.

Can't make this year due to my overloaded October, but have fun, kids!  Play Wuxing and I'll be there in spirit.    :)

"I was actually thinking of playing Wuxing this tournament.  I want to annoy my opponent with Reliable :)"

Anyway, sorry you can't make it.......

My hope is that everybody that can make it, does.   Can we start to generate a list of people who will be playing in Marcus' event?

I'm going to be there on Friday.  I'm running a Axis and Allies event Friday night, but will be playing Battleground all day leading up to my event.  This will be another good opportunity for people to get used to the new ranged rules which will be employed. 

Here I'll start:

Committed: Brook, Marcus, Joseu

Possible: Chris (working some stuff out will let Marcus know soon)

Hopefully these guys will play because they'll be at the Convention: Dave Cheng, Eric Stolar

Have no idea if they are coming at all: Ron, Jaime, Kevin

Who ever does come we'll have a blast as we always do, but it's always better with more players.

Ok then.

What about this:

(3) 6/5  3/2 R-0 C-13 M-3.5" 3G/3Y/2R

Keyword: Spears

Something weird like (+2) when holding with all the spear bonuses.

You could even make them M-5" like those historical guys......Agemi or something like that.

And I don't think there's going to be a fix for that.  Any high elf spear unit is going to be at least 300pts.  There's just no getting around units with stats like that costing any less.  And for that amount of points, it can't sit back and play the "come at me bro" game with other units.  It needs to get stuck in and start earning its points.

But when you factor in the effectiveness of Elder Blade units for not much more in points, the HE Spearmen just don't seem like a good investment.  If you want High Elf spearmen to be seen then they have to be like Battle Squads. 

Or we need to give Cygnets spears.  That's been my vote for a long time.

Yeah, HE Spears where always the kind of unit I wanted to fit into a build, but could rarely justify actually doing it.  I rarely use them and I rarely see others use them.

I'm wondering if the configuration of the High Elf Spearmen unit could be changed.  It seems as though that unit stays in the box with most builds. Maybe it could be changed to something like this:

(5) 6/5  3/2 R-0 C-12 M-3.5"  5G/2Y/2R

(+1/+2 vs. cavalry, large)

Or whatever.

Just a thought.  It's current cost of 334 points is quit prohibitive.  Especially in this faction where everything is quit expensive.

Event updated.  I'll have it finalized in a few days.

Cheers!
