CA, I have to say, I am consistently impressed with the High Elves.
Although they were not my favorite Warhammer race(Top 5 at least though) and I always thought they looked funny in their tall hats, but now I think them the most amazing TWW2 faction.
Everything, from their music, to their shining golden and silver armor, to the way they look arrogant and sufficiently elven on the battlefield, just make me so happy when I play them. I'm absolutely in love now. Seeing a shining host charge into skaven filth or stout dwarfen lines gets me every time, their archers flinging arrows with grace and skill and fashionably good looks all to very LOTR style elven music. On the map, I feel like I'm really fighting for the survival of the Warhammer world, because my elves are champions of light and life. And Ulthuan is just absolutely gorgeous.
It's deep in their animations, art, and play style. The way Lothern Sea Guard fire volleys and then switch into a charge, spears out, to meet the foe, the way Swordmasters wield their blades, how Dragon Princes trot arrogantly. Seeing the pointy helms of my elves rising above the tide of greenskins around them, fighting hard deep within the ranks of orcs. It's all perfect.
And the opening cinematic of the Vortex campaign where the brothers work together, one to go search for a solution, the other to defend the homeland, just gives me chills.
The Dwarfs and other races also feel very good, but for some reason, to me, it feels like the High Elves have just been perfectly given life. They are just a joy to play and feel so special to me. Thank you CA.
Anyone else feel CA really outdid themselves with the High Elves, or any other race?
