Yeah that is fine, bring her out she is awesome, Vlad nica is top rated sylvaneth player in the US and she is in all his lists. 

 

I may try that. I always mess with my models. My Durthu has the back branches of all 3 treelords.  Its not that I am trying to get any kind of advantage I just like havving things "over the top".  I am thinking of using the Aethervoid Pendulum as my Durthu weapon. I think it might look cool

The change is in GBH18, I believe someone posted the exact change wording earlier in the forum. I believe the wording is the same as suffocating gravetide only units can't be the targets of attacks (whereas gravetide counts as cover).

There is a change to the Citadel Wood warscroll...is this also applicable to Wyldwoods?

I had thought it wouldn’t. Waiting to see if it come up on an FAQ. My thinking is that you only ever use 1 warscroll for a model - not a combination of 2

He was very specific, you can choose each round of battle which one she will use. He has also played against the #1 ranked sylvaneth player in the US who plays it like this. Not to mention the TO for SoCal open and broadside bash(two major tournaments) agree with this as well. 

Either way I’ll be playing it like this haha I just posting this so people don’t limit themselves and on how awesome drycha is. 

her swarm weapon choice is an "either...or", so you have to choose one that will be fixed for the whole fight. the only thing that changes inbetween rounds is her mood, which effects which weapon can refill ones, but she still keeps the same swarm.

Ching wing : It doesn't matter how top ranked your friends are, just read the warscroll. It's clearly a matter of choice and not a two in one. If it matters to you I am also a top ranked Sylvaneth player who would love your friend to be right but he/she isn't.

I have a Drycha who does not have any creatures on her. I have them on separate small round bases next to her to show what I am using. Is this "ok"? Of course the base have no use and never gets in the way or anything.

Yea, the wording is exactly the same as pretty much every other unit in the game. Either swarm OR flies. If that allowed you to take both then you'd see people running around with kurnoth hunters shooting arrows from their scythes that have swords attached to the bottom.

Hunters are really good with exception to bow hunters imo which are just okay, Ive played several games with them and was never impressed and with new rules they are even more underwhelming, 

the sycthes are my go to since they have the extra reach as well as -2 rend they can do some major damage.

I went to a tournament last weekend and summoned a free unit of bow hunters... never again will I do that haha. Summon anything other than them. It was the only game I lost and they did absolutely nothing. 

I’m a bit gutted now this edition with 6 bow hunters that just won’t be used...

i also wish now I had built my Drycha with no bugs on her to use her as either

Regarding Hunters, I still really like Bow Hunters. I’m planning to use them as objective campers. Able to be fairly tanky, still put out a ranged threat and do some damage without having to move them up the board (I’ve got a Durthu / Drycha for that)

When I first started sylvaneth I read a forum post somewhere that gave me the idea to magnetize/glue the extra unused weapons to the back of the hunters. Now my bow hunters all got a sword or a scythe and my melee hunters have a bow magnetized to their waist or back. My local community does not frown too much on a bit of proxy play so they would not mind anyway but it still looks better this way and no opponent can nag me about it either.

 My Drycha was put together in a similar fashion. I glued up a few bugs from both variety and painted the to be extra distinguishable.
