Elves

The Elves are one of the most ancient and powerful of all the intelligent races of the Warhammer Fantasy World. They are tall, slender humanoids who are inherently magical and live for millennia. There are three main factions of Elves in the world: the High Elves, Dark Elves and Wood Elves.

Compared to humans, Elves are taller on average, fair-skinned, and slender. They possess high cheekbones and slightly angular faces and slanted eyes. Some depictions show them with completely black eyes, while in others they possess human-normal pupils and irises.

High Elves are often shown with blonde hair, Wood Elves with brown and Dark Elves with black, but these changes are minor and cosmetic and the three groups are for the most part physically indistinguishable and all members of the same species. What defines each kindred of Elves more than anything else is their different cultures.

These other factions are comprised of Elves, but it is unclear if all or some qualify as Elves in the eyes of the game. Many of them are rogue armies which are generally considered their own category in terms of factions.
