WOOD ELVES WEEK 1 RELEASES
Treeman Ancient $61
The Treeman Ancients are the oldest of all the Treemen of Athel Loren, and it is their magic that nurtures and shapes the forest’s growth. Slow to anger, they only answer the call to war when times are dire, when their leadership can rouse the forest of Athel Loren to its full fighting fury.
Standing over 6 inches tall, the Treeman Ancient miniature is equipped with a magical staff and a mighty claw. Covered with knotted bark and gnarled branches the Treeman Ancient is almost impervious to harm.
Customise your Treeman by adding ethereal spite-creatures to the base, branches or roots. There are eight fantastical little spites in this kit to choose from.
This multi-part plastic kit makes one of three miniatures: the Treeman, the Treeman Ancient or the special character Durthu. Each variant has a unique pose, a different head and its own weaponry options.
The guardians of Athel Loren care little for the outside world. Theirs is an existence shaped by the passage of the seasons, by ancient magic and by folklore.
Warhammer: Wood Elves is a 96-page, full colour hardback army book. Inside you will find:
– The history of the Wood Elves and the tale of the founding of Athel Loren.
– Detailed descriptions of all the Wood Elf characters, units and monsters.
– The full lores of High and Dark Magic, and the magic items available to Wood Elf armies.
– A showcase of Citadel miniatures from single models to vast armies.
– The Wood Elves army list.
Araloth, the lord of Talsyn was once a feckless coward who allowed others to go to battle in his place. Transformed by an unforeseen encounter he is now a fearless hero of Athel Loren and his triumphs in battle are the inspiration for many songs. Armed with a spear, shield and his flying companion Skaryn “the eye thief”, Araloth defends the forest when the spirits slumber.
Araloth comes as a single frame plastic Citadel miniature.
Shadowdancers form the devoted priesthood of the Trickster God, Loec. Only they know all the paths through Athel Loren, as they tread the paths of the Dreaming Wood as surely as they do the mortal world. In battle these wizards are the most dazzlingly swift and most feared of all the Wardancers. They prefer to confound their enemies with deceptions of the mind, but when required they can deal instant death.
The Shadowdancer is a Citadel Finecast miniature that is armed with a spear and sword.
Wood Elves neither covert nor embrace anything that lies beyond their borders. Nor do they favour one lore of magic over another, they happily use whichever best serves their needs.
Warhammer Battle Magic: Wood Elves contains 16 spells from the Lores of High and Dark Magic as presented in Warhammer: Wood Elves.
-Giant hawk based triple unit-combo kit
-Mounted unit (stags)
Todays batch of gamer magnifying glass examination reveals:
The various pictures going around have shown what appears to be 2 distinct types of mounted deer/stags of some type, so it seems a safe bet we can pencil those in (almost certainly a combo-kit).
