Firstly, Eldar in 3rd ed basically had a heavy bolter that killed terminators on 2s. That is insane and needed to be taken away. In 2nd ed they had Warp Spiders which meant you could kill an entire army in 2 turns (you're opponent had to be thick, but still). They need bringing to order.SckizoBoy said:Things have moved on since 3rd Ed, mate, they now suck major-league balls thanks to Mat Ward (I will insert appropriate 'nickname' upon request) and his idiocy.Bassik said:Have you ever played Warhammer or Warhammer 40.000? Elves and Eldar (Space elves) are the most annoying armies to face, with tons of special rules that make their models do things that your guys simply can not.
They now have some of the easiest special rules, compared to Necrons, Grey Knights etc. etc. and more importantly, I still love 'em. Eldrad Ulthran will never die, thank you...
Really? They all seem fairly Republican to me... -_-Bertylicious said:It's because elves are lame. They're either OP ubermensches who have befalled some bullshit tradgedy and/or whiny, obama-loving, hippie, fucks.
OT: Perhaps I betray my prejudices when I say that I actually like the archetype (though I may have warped it significantly somewhere along the line).
*leaves before shitstorm*
Secondly, I am refering to wood elf types when I'm talking about hippy elves but I do appreciate what you mean as they are usually ultra conservative. I really just wanted to use the phrase "whiny, obama-loving, hippie, fuck".
