I’m sure wood elves are lovely folks but I know if I ever see one, there’s no way I’m not ending up mulched around a sapling. If that sounds a lark to you, hey, the Wood Elves have arrived in Total Warhammer [official site] with today’s launch of its latest expansion. ‘Realm of the Wood Elves’ adds the murderous hippy army with their own units, their own story campaign, and a few twists that make them different to play. Read what we made of them when we played a preview version.
Wood Elves being, y’know, wood elves are fond of swift attacks with some fearsome cavalry and archers who can fire even while moving. They’re also friends with trees. Do not anger trees.
