Chainmail Set 4: Wood Elf Starstrike Archer
By Rob Heinsoo
Model: Wood Elf Starstrike Archer
Why It Rocks: In the Salamander Troopers world of Damage Reduction, the Starstrike Archer manages to function as an equal.
Tips and Tactics: The Wood Elf Starstrike Archer only gets one shot per round, but that shot nearly always hits. Unlike most missile troops, it can take 3 damage before it even has to make a morale save. Its the most reliable elf archer in the game, unless you decide to go the Independent Troop route. Pair the Starstrike Archer with the Gray Elf Imperial Noble for an endlessly repeatable shot that can strike the target that most needs hitting.
Enemies Who Hate to See It: Damage Reduction models such as the Salamander Trooper and the lycanthropes (Werebear and Werewolf Troopers) would rather not face the Starstrike Archer -- particularly not in the "Pain Cave" scenario.
