Spearmen would be kind of boring...And a chariot would be sort of wierd but beastmen get one and they live in the forests hmmm Stag chariot? jk could be a scary idea though but flying one would make me die. I hate it for HE and i would hate it for WE...
Thanks, I agree that a new unicorn model for spellweavers would be great, some slightly reworked rules too.

I really liked the 3rd Edition Wardancers and all the Feathers and Tattoos.
That Looks something that's been missing lately for me - as fine as the last edition of plastic Elves were.
It was more Standard Look and not enough mixed wild Highlander/Mohawk for me.
Me too, I mostly loved the route that 7th took the Asrai, I love the more feral wild nature, but I'd like to see more of the AmIndian / Celtic look return, in conjunction with the wild wood.

I was thinking something more like a unit of alter kindred elves, asrai that are in the process of transforming into forest spirits, fast moving, hard hitting, (maybe even ethereal?), forest spirit ward saves, but still basically still elves on foot.
I very much doubt EG will get shifted into core without a stat nerd, I can't see WS5 Ld9 Stubborn making it into the core section, they've got 'special' written all over them (note that all the other bodyguard units in the game are special units (Temple/tomb/grave/black guard, White Lions etc). Even high elves don't really have any of their specialist units in core, its their basic cavalry, their basic infantry, their basic archers etc. In a sense the core section is precisely for basic, 'bland' units, the fancy stuff is always in special/rare.
No offence taken at all, discussion and differing opinion are what create new ideas and interest for me in this hobby. My trainee Wardancer idea is not really my idea anyway, I've seen it on here somewhere. Like you I basically just want a more cc orientated core troop choice, your Alter Kindred idea works fine for me.

Which would be a tragedy, Bretonnians are no Empire and although I understand the army is a low seller, it's so interesting to WFB fluff and variety to have them as a separate realm (and army) to the Empire.
