Whelp, earlier this year I finally took the plunge and went all in with age of sigmar. I've always loved the rules but getting a army together seemed just beyond my reach. With my 40k pretty much all finished, and with alot of umming and ahhing, I went with wanderers, I liked wood elves back in the day, so have gone with them
So I get that the End Times managed to funk up the High/Dark/Wood elf triumvirate, and now we've got less-fractured "aelves" that hang around with Order. I haven't really looked in-depth at the aelf lore; I just know that now our aelf models, despite looking like their original factions from the world-that-was, are technically all allied. I've always liked the background of the High/Dark elf civil war, and the fluff that came along with the different kingdoms of Ulthuan and the cities of Naggaroth. The End Times really brushed that under the rug, and AoS has seemingly neglected tinkering with the background for the time being. I don't know what GW has in store for the aelves - they might get rolled up into Battletome factions, or remain clinging for dear life on the edge of the Grand Alliance book as an "old models, new rules" army, as they are now. In any case, what exactly can we do with the aelves as they are now? I've seen that some of the aelf units have been distributed among different sub-factions, like the Darkling Covens, Daughters of Khaine, Order Draconis, Wanderers, etc. etc. So the original factions at large have been done away with, but then separated again into smaller collections. Can purists rely on these sub-factions to field viable armies under the traditional High/Dark/Wood themes, or is AoS really trying to encourage a new direction, with a mish-mash of former enemies? Are there any good synergies to be found in cross-mini-faction armies? Chaos has my attention now, begging me to finish the starter Bloodbound while I wait for my Skaven to arrive, but I have always loved the elf backgrounds and I remain cautiously optimistic about the prospect of collecting them one day... AoS setting pending.
