oooh, random Idea I had, I will remake the crossbowmen I use into archers with composite bows, think about it, advanced mechanics to make a bow shot be almost as good as a crossbow might be. thoughts?

Not really elfy if you ask me, they tend not to use technology but magic to improve things. Bolt Thrower being the exception. Maybe a recurve bow? That said do up a test mini and lets have a look.

and their ships no? the dark elves tend to favor more mechanical, and I was aiming for more mechanical purposely due to it replacing, a bolt thrower.

I must admit that I'm not very knowledgeable on the DE navy but I had assumed that were pretty much in line with other elf ships - fast sleek and fairly no mechanical instead relying on wind and magic. Could be wrong though.

A composite bow sounds no more mechanical than a repeater crossbow; possibly even less so.

I say convert!
