I have a hard time determining where this unit should be in power level because usually when looking at a unit in a roster I try to take into account that rosters intended weaknesses and strengths in the source material TT and in the game.
Since this is a unit that wasn't originally in the TT and was put in to plug a gap I am not sure.
Currently the unit beats WE wardancers when rangers are chevroned to 799 and Wardancers at 800
They also beat Dryads when they are chevroned up 601 price point (which I was shocked about since dryads stats look like they would be the perfect counter for these units with magic attacks cutting through High elven rangers 20 Physical resist and having 60 armor.
At the same time Dryads, Witch elves and wardancers have some benefits over the rangers Dryads and wardancers are immune to psychology
Witch elves can rampage units.
Then on the other hand High elven rangers are very resilient to range fire due to their spacing.
A matchup where they really worry me is against vampire counts because when they are chevroned up to 866 they seem to trade 50/50 or a little better with grave guard at 850 when this is the infantry unit you would think vamps would bring to counter them.
and HE would counter Grave guard with White lion.
In the beastmen matchup Gor Herd 600 lose very handily to High elven rangers 600. I personally would think this should be an area where beastmen would be a bit stronger than HE since this didn't seem to be an area of intended strength in the original HE race design before this gap was plugged. As evidenced by the fact that when Avalorn got access to dryads they got charged more for the same unit.
So what do people think should HE rangers be performing as one of the best in class anti infantry units in its price range or are they a bit too strong considering this was originally what I thought was a designed weakness for HE?
I would expect HE to have better tools in other areas like archers cav and magic when compared to most other races and have a decent tool in rangers but not one of the best in class here for the price.
Or maybe alternatively most other races infantry in this price range is just too weak?
