which is your favourite elf and whats the thing that makes em best.
I like them all, but i voted for High Elves, just because of ASF.
Why am I not surprised HE are in the lead . I liek HE the best because of their fluff, the ASF is a nice bonus. I started HE back in Febuary of 07 so the update really helped me.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
You know, it's almost as if this poll is pushing me towards picking a certain answer...
Hmm, which elves do I like the best? That's a toughie. The High Elves were what first got me into WFB, and will always have a special spot - and the fluff (except for the Lion Chariots - wtf?) is pretty good. Wood Elves are also my other big favourite - even more 'elfy' than the High Elves. Fast, manouverable, shooty and deadly. Brilliant! Then there is the dark elves - twisted shadows of the High Elves, with a few cooler units (corsairs, hydra etc), which I am also a fan of.
But, for the sake of this poll, I'm gonna have to go for.......Wood Elves!

I'm not really into nasty devilish elves. I don't mind dark stuff, or "the macabre" (for instance, I think VCs are sweet) but the Dark Elves are over the top for me.
Wood Elves are pretty awesome. Their stealth, maneuverability, and shooting is killer. But they are a pretty limited army as far as style of play. I would probably have started playing this army if a friend hadn't beaten me to it. It turns out I'm glad he beat me to it because...
High Elves are the best. Cool fluff and most fun style of play, i.e. most versatile.
...although I have to admit the WE have cooler models.

I think this poll is rather biased, for a number of reasons (not just the Caps).
Anyway, I voted WEs. This is because they're shifty, silent, and mysterious. The artwork for them is generally rubbish (they were drawn too thin), but the models are awesome, and I like their fluff. Plus they do me well in games.
I voted wood elves because they are the most elfy, they're the only elves who properly fight chaos, coz they go around killing beastmen, and they're the only elves to stay competitive without silly special rules. Who needs ASF and hatred? I can walk through a forest with NO PENALTY!!
I don't know- I play WoodElves and High Elves. The High Elves are my babies. I just finished a repaint of my whole army, and they look amazing. I'm not too active on the WE forum either, but I love them as a sort of a black-book army. They are a blast for me to play, but alot of people don't like fighting them. My army isn't "powergamed" or anything like that, it's just entirely fast cavalry and skirmishers. The result is that opponents have a very onesided game of walk around until I decide to charge them on Turn5or6.
Plus, the woodelves require too much from the rules-lawyering end. You have to beg for terrain, you have to make sure that the game only goes for a set number of turns, etc.
The Dark Elves are sick and twisted, and I guess that if I wasn't loyal to the HE, I'd grab them. However, I think they look a little silly, and they aren't as Uber as everyone thinks. I wiped them out in the magic phase with my HE. True statement. +1 to Dispell and another +1 from the Staff of Sorcery, Annulian Crystal to steal a dice, and Drain Magic to make it even less effective, means they don't get ANY spells off. Toss in the Book of Hoeth and a 'blaster' Dragon Mage, and they don't stop much either.
I guess that- since you want me to- I'll cowtow to your will and vote HighElves. The most flexible of the elves, and the meanest army I own.
I voted for High Elves, because the Dark Elf background (or fluff as some people call it) annoys the hell out of me and Wood Elves are laking some unit types without which I'd feel "naked" on the battlefield.
High Elves. They are noble, yet tragic race. I've never warmed for Dark Elves, since their entire society is based on lies and betrayals. Though, game-wise, I had larger success with Dark Elves rather than High Elves...
Wood Elves are having too little impact in WH-world to attract my attention.From my understanding, they stay in their forest and attack beastman/orks only, should they threaten their safe haven.Originally Posted by Bobbinnsz
