is it just me or is there a huge fall in dark elf players? I rarely get my questions or list commented, most other armies get a reply straight away. In all my local clubs i was the only DE player, even at tornaments with over 100 people there were only 2 dark elf players...thoughts?

Well, I'm not a DE player, I certainly was thinking of getting them as my first Warhammer army, except what with all the metal models and newb unfriendly stats, well... I've decided to get a beardy army instead. (Yes, dwarfs.)
I dont think that it is a fall in DE players so much as it is that DE are second armies for alot of people that play them. The things that discourage Pixie are the same things that cause other people to play different armies. That is also why comments come back quicker on other armies, more people play them as their main army.
Just wait for August to come around. With the new book coming out, I predict a surge of new DE players. It will also make having DE as your main army more attractive as you shouldnt have to be as much skilled tactician to win as you do now.
A surge, as in 20-30? Nobody outside the Warhammer world is all aquiver about the possibility of a new Dark Elf army book, and those who do know tend to already have armies, so I don't thinkit will start that big a recruitment drive.

well tbh there is a lack of dark elf players but thats not a bad thing it means they dont knnow how to play you plus if you work it out dark elves are akchually far from one of the best warhammer armies they are teribbly under strngth which is why its being redone i think in august 2008 so since i am a DE vetaren im looking forward to new exiting DE evil
As it stands right now the DE's are at the low end of the elf stick. Wood elves have been out for quite a while and HE have been out long enough for people to both play and get used to them and their tactics. DE on the other hand are one of the few armies that haven't seen an actual update in a long time. They also have a poor set of models, no fighty charcter model on foot to speak of, and tend to have a high learning curve and little forgiveness to players who make mistakes.
But if the rumors can be beleved DE's are going to be given a beat stick upgrade when the new book comes out. For now just enjoy the fact that your getting to play an army that not too many people are willing to try.
sadly its true, there used to be quite a few of us, i used to post alot, and another player named manu forti used to post on everything. unfortunately he left and I started to spend less time on LO and more on other Warhammer forums, and it seems like most of the people from about a year ago have left. Well except for attila, he's still here and so are a few others. Well im gunna leave now,Cheers to all of those willing to hold out until the new book!:drinking:
They have a large fanbase i think, but most people are just waiting for the new models before they start, and that's not too far away. Once you get a new book, don't worry, you'll have loads of players
