I play HE and DE so I'm gonna have to vote wood elves. I don't like anything that can't put up a fight in CC.

Wood Elves are fine. I can respect the "don;t bother me" attitude as they do it.

High Elves suck. No two ways about it.

But the real kicker?

Dark Elves.

"Oh waaaahhhhhhh, we didn't get what we wanted! I'm gonna dress in black and cut myself.... then cut you, 'cause I can!"

Wankers.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Kinda like them all so can't vote

Like I said in the opening post, I hate all elves but i mostly hate High Elves, damn beard-shaving arrogant pointy-eared losers.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “The current system of servitude is barbaric and inadequate for today's generation. We appeal to the leaders of both the Imperium and the Coalition of Hateful Assholes and Organised Sin to seek to change this for the betterment of all its citizens”

Lorgar: “Guess there was one plot thread we forgot to erase ...” Mortarion nods in agreement, while Ahriman looks on suspiciously.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “We feel trapped, we feel oppressed. And we urge our governments to release us from these metal boxes-”

Lorgar: “Oh shi-”

Firraveus Carron: Leaping to his feet. “METAL BOXES?!?METAL BOXES!!!THEY RIDE IN METAL BOXES!!!”

you should really learn more about them before you start insulting them.

Dark elves are just the loyal SOLDIERS of the elves who followed one of the greatest commanders the elves had before the split, Maelkith. Now if you said that Maelkith was a crybaby who was semi emo, i would not disagree with you, BUT Dark Elves themselves are actually wear black because they do NOT mourn. as for Elven lore, white is their colour of mourning, not black. Emos wear black to mourn for their self pity. So in actuality, Dark elves are cool soldiers who seek out war because thats all they know, their mentality, revolves around protecting their beliefs through war.

Now, High elves, theres a bunch of pansies who even had the nerve to think they were safe from everything without any militaristic force, and made maelkith turn into his dark evil brooding state.

Going by elven lore, and the reference to colours, the high elves are the pansies who are crying over their losses wearing white, where the Dark elves are just going off to slay anything that gets in their way of their own goals.

high elves are by far the worst, wood elves come a close second

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.

I've read their ridiculous book.

And the fact is, a bunch of sybaritic power-hungry twits exemplify the worst of the High Elves' traits.

Fer Chrissake, Malekith decided he'd rather feed everyone to Chaos if he couldn't rule Ulthuan. And the rest of those idiots followed him.

And let's not get started on the Pleasure cults, which were Elven Ennui taken so far it came out around the other side.

Dark elves = militaristic self serving jerks (A evil America run by elves?)
High elves = regulatory force of isolationists that grone about the evils of the world (UN)

My vote is once again with the high elves being the worst. Mind you the whole pleasure cult debacle one me over to the dark elves being superior (Yah chaos)

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

hmmm, I wonder what army he plays

the dark elves have blood Orgies and torture for fun!! what are the cults all about is not power, is there a half believable reaon for all there power lusting. they are a bunch of sex crazed maniacs (like half of the world today) who have a fetish for power. the wankers.
