You just need enough punch to wipe out all the fighting ranks before they can strike.

As I understand it the first two ranks can now fight (plus extra for being in Horde, having spears, or being pointy-eared munchkins), so if you kill 10 models before they strike you stop them striking.

Not certain how specifically this affects Witch Elves; do they usually fail to kill more than the one rank?

Ah, I see. The way they'd talked about it in the WD (at least regarding some models) sounded like the guys stepping foreward got their full number of attacks so wiping out 5-10 models had no impact on how many attacks came back.
I believe that models not in the front rank at the start of the combat are limited to one attack however many they have from profile and weapons, so those that step forward get one attack and reduce the attacks from the final fighting rank (as the model that steps forward could not fight at the beginning of combat).
