This list covers the Laiquendi (Green-elves) of Ossiriand and the Sindar of Doriath and the Falas in the first age, plus the wood-elven armies of Lorien and Mirkwood during the second and third ages. In the first age, most Sindar (Grey-elves) lived in Doriath and the Falas, although others were scattered all over Beleriand, some living alongside their Noldor brethren. At the end of the first age, after most of the Noldor and many of the Sindar had left Endor (Middle-earth), the Sindar came to become the ruling classes in the mostly Silvan-elf kingdoms of Lothlorien and Mirkwood. These Wood-elven kingdoms were not war-like and most were poorly armed, and suffered heavily in open battle. They excelled at forest warfare, however, and were expert archers. Longbows were used in Lorien, shortbows in Mirkwood. Most Wood-elves wore green, although the Sindar favoured grey, and the nobility and professional soldiers would be attired in brighter colours. Some Wood-elves dwelt underground, some, especially in Lorien, lived in tree-houses. A BUA may therefore be accompanied by a Wd feature in the same manner that normal BUAs may be accompanied by enclosed fields. A Haladin ally-general can only command Woodsmen and must command all Woodsmen used. Woodsmen cannot be used with Ents. An Ent ally general can only command Ents or Huorns, and must command all Ents or Huorns used, in which case no more than 6 elements of regulars may be fielded. If Dwarves are used, then Lakemen and Eagle ally contingents must both also be fielded. The minimum marked * applies only if an Eagle ally-general is used. He may only command eagles, and all eagles must be in his command. Kn (F) can always dismount as Sp (O). The Kn(I) must be on a double-element base.
