Seriously. What are these things? I kind of liked them in the waist up concept art but the final figures are just really weird.
They should be releasing in April alongside the Kharadron Overlords dwarven techno warband. Originally this season I was excited about Eyes of the Nine, the Godsworn Hunt, the Sylvaneth warband and the Kharadron Overlords warband. Whgile I'll definitely be intrigued by the Eyes of the Nine I think I might pass on these wooden mutated tree things although some of the cards in the Godsworn Hunt expansion give some hints as to how these elven tree spirits might play. I'll also obviously be getting the Kharadron Overlords when they come out as well.
kinda like em ! ill get them even if only for the cards, they got a woody spirity thing about them , different than the "usual" treeman man/men/woman/lady/person/entity/thing/insert gender-less quote here. i will probably paint them ghostly because i can just ink them in between painting another gang, so could possibly paint two gangs in evening, especially if the overlords come out soon as they wont have many figures in the gang either.
The wood elf thingies do need to roll lots of criticals.
If the leader rolls a crit during a magic attack she heals a wound. If the archer takes someone out she gets a second shot. The axeman is prickly. If he rolls a crit in defence the attacker takes 1 damage. If the swordsman rolls a crit to hit he deals an extra point of damage.
Each of these reactions has a 1/round limit on it.
