Finally arrived the beautiful Wood Elf Archers Box from 1987. The group of elves is well sculpted, but it's worth taking just for the fabulous punk-leader with two swords!
The box is really nice, full of colours and great pictures. Also in the back we can see a small story about the Archers Regiment and all their numbers in combat!
|EQUIPMENT||The scouts are equipped with chain mail
shields, swords and long bows. Note that shields provide no
protection when using bows. Personalities are equipped as
noted in their individual descriptions.
Since they rely on guerilla warfare and sneak attacks,
the scouts have no battlecry.
|DEEDS||Skarloc's Wood Elf Scouts fight to preserve
the edges of
their forest home against the depradations of other races,
most notably Orcs. Little is known of their deeds, although
on one occasion over 200 Orcs of the Broken Skull tribe
entered the forest, and none returned.
|UNIFORMS||The scouts wear leather surcoats over their
in various shades of green and brown for camouflage.

white trunk on a
