Dark elves may have plenty cool units and may be fast but what they lack most of all (at least in my games) is strength and anti armor. i use cold one knights with highborns. other than these there is little beef in dark elves that is reasonably priced. how do i get through those pesky 2+ armour saves?
only the knights and characters can obtain 2+ sv. Strength isn't a problem wehn you get executioners and various monsters to use and chariots. Witch Elves are good against high T units as well due to their poison. For anti armour... well none can pass on the boltthrower it eats armour other than that is magic and massed shooting... even if your opponent have 2+sv they gotta roll 1s sometime.
Dark elves don't have allround units like other armies... DE units are very specialized to one type of area so you have to learn to use them together for the best effect.
that's right. ur aim is to shoot a couple down with bolt throwers and then head them off with your knights, then flank em to outnumber/reduce ranks/ and hopefully get em to run home crying to momma this is why we get fast cavalry as a core relatively inexpensive.
and yes, executioners can be your key to raking in kills on high armor lovers.
one of my friends plays empire and knows i have trouble halting the train of full plate knights, so he goes with a big fat unit of 10 sometimes 12 with a lord. it's painful, but u just try to get those nice resolution bonuses that DE's are so fond of.
no beef? lol have u read our list
we have two flying monsters
a reasonable chariot
the can openers also know as executioners
COK that are a real hard hitting unit
RBT that are very nice for slaying large monsters
we have loads of punch

If you use your head with dark elves you can deal with any threats.. they arent like chaos or orks, where you charge forwards blindly, relying on sheer brute strenght & toughness.
& winning with good tactics is alot more satisfying than winning in that fashion.
So my advice: use your brain! just be prepared to lose afew games while you learn how to use em properly.
