My first thaughts is either Dark elves and high elves as i like the models, and id think my style would be generally force an attack via archers counter attcking from a wall of infantry using some fast cav and skirmishers to try and outposition and a hard hitting flank, Obviously each opponant, game or scenario would make a change to my plan, id just like to hear from some experience players

The counter-attacking would be fairly tough with high or dark elves, since after the initial charge you get really squishy. If you used special and rare choices for the counter-attack it would possibly work, but be very expensive point-wise.

From what I have seen of mounted dark elves the cold ones are decent, but fairly expensive even in terms of calvary while the high elves have IMO a better variety of calvary to use.

If you are really stuck on the idea of elves than wood elves are from what I have seen capable of dealing a better counter-attack. There re also the empire and bretonians which can do the afore mentioned strategy fairly well.

But between dark and high choose what you think is better for you:

High:
magic
longer range
wider variety of calvary (3 or 4 choices)

Dark:
repeater crossbows (but shorter range)
cold ones (cause fear)
assassins

those are the major advantages that I have detected between those two races from when I have played as or against them.

I hope this helps
