I currently play Eldar in 40K, I was wondering if it would be rewarding for me to change to warhammer fantasy instead. My playing style is:
In close combat I'm not specifically looking to annihilate my opponent, rather to be the first one to make him break and run.
I like the use of ranged attacks to thin out opponent numbers and then attack in close quarters. I would prefer to outnumber by a few models, but not be reliant on mass numbers. I'd rather rely on my troops being more skilled than my opponent. not stronger, more skilled. To reduce their squads to sizes where they are no longer useful to the enemy, and no longer a threat to me.
I prefer faster movement than humans will get, so that my forces are more manouvrable.
Would High Elves be the army for me?
From my upcoming High Elf Tactica.
1.1 Who the Army Appeals to.
High elves should be considered by players who enjoy small, elite armies with great flexibility actual army build. This is an elite INFANTRY based army. The army is superior in leadership and steady, but outnumbered inevitably. Frail yet fast. First to strike yet hardly tough enough to survive a second round with equal opponents. Skilled enough to consistently hit the enemy but lacking the strength to do as much damage as will likely be given back.
High elves are masters of magic and blessed with items to sway the very winds of magic. Their characters are elite yet frail. This is a very tactical army requiring great skill in deployment and troop management. Mistakes are costly to the high elf general, yet equally costly to the opponent underestimating the power of the elite infantry or the speed of the army. High elves are designed to be a balanced elite army combining some archery, with blocks of core and elite infantry supported by war machines and flyers. If you want “special forces” without overreliance on one troop type or set of tactics, consider high elves.
Siunds like my kind of army exactly, down to the mainly infantry theme. I'll look into them.
The tactica is up and worth a read even if a draft and perhaps full of little errors or missing some better techniques this forum can add.
