What's wrong with bloodletters? They're strength 5 two attacks right? Witch elves have problems against high toughness/armor save stuff. Bloodletters are less so. I think you should still give them a try. Would you rather have 3 strength 3 or 2 strength 5 for the same weapon skill? Don't forget tha...

Great thready, it's a shame that there are almost more negative responses than there are positive. Hmmm. I was expecting negative comments, but this is falling into the more usual "There are these big problems" routine. Basically, DEs have a fantastic fluff background, but the list simply isn't up ...

Finally I get to this question: "And there the nail is hit firmly on the head. If the army can be used, and used well - what is the problem? " Well, it's a question of fairness. An elite army needs elite troopers. I have no problems with the core. I have no problems with the fast stuff. It's the el...

You said: Swordsmen, marauders, and beastmen are all cheaper than corsairs. The overall effect when they have the +1 bonus from outnumber is that corsairs have to fight an uphill battle to win. That's why I wrote about them. When you face these kinds of armies, this is what your corsairs have to de...

Magic? Use magic on them? The best spell vs them, soul stealer has a range of 8 inches, which puts you dangerously within their range range. And don't you forget that we elves have a T3, which makes us significantly more vulnerable to magic. With Staff of Darkoth, you will have more problem with th...

Your analysis is simply too superficial. The problems with Skaven are two-fold IMO: 1 - GW reduced the effect of fire from missle troops in 6th edition, but left the effect of fire from specialist missle units (i.e. warmachines) mostly intact . . . and Skaven have nothing but specialist missle fire...

Rork. I hope you wont spam and start flame wars here like you do on the GW forums. No, that is not my purpose here. You may have noticed that I haven't gone into "Irrate" mode yet. I don't start flame wars - I leave that to others. I am in enemy territory here, there are far too many here with dagg...

That was a little off topic...now on to the topic. First off, weak army or not you can still do well if you're a good general. In real life, the points are not fair and your troops may well be outnumbered. That's the way it goes. It's not so bad that the army is unwinnable. You just need to outplay...

Really, Rork? That's a surprise. Most of the players I talk to dont' like cold one knights, such as Jeff Leong, he has a post about it somewhere when I asked him. You can look it up by searching for posts written by me. Chariots are a 95 point investment for a hard hitting unit that does wounds. Co...

The problem is not that they're weak or not, but that they (troops) are too expensive for what they do, making the army difficult to handle against horde armies. It lacks against hvy armoured armies too. I was under the impression that was the objective in designing the elves in this edition. I thi...

I really like how Gav sems to be annoyed so much by Dark Elf posts he avoids the Warhammer forum altogether. He even posted a request to stop complaining... glad to see that had its desired effect. I don't think you can reason with a man who ignores reason because of pride. I've mailed GW too, they...

This questions is asked quite often recently! ;) It's only natural to point out the weaknesses and not the strengths, but if you take a look into the Tactics forum, you'll find a lot of posts covering the strengths of the Dark Elves. Bye Thanee Hmmm...but Dark Elves are often criticised for having ...

Surely special characters aren't necessary to make an army good.

And striking in I order with that version of killing blow...hmmm...I think that is a little too good...

Perhaps it is time to depolarise this site... For too long there have been negative vibes about the Dark Elves - So the simple question is: What is actually good about the army? Is it a bad army that just happens to win? Or a good army with unfulfilled potential? Deep down, Is it *really* that bad? ...
