Talk:High Elves (Warhammer Fantasy)

From 1d4chan

High Elf page is undergoing extensive working, please take a glance and look for places to add jokes and for any fuckups you see. Please also add links to other 1d4chan pages as needed.

Region info[edit]

For a shadowlands army wouldn't Swordmasters be another good choice to load up on since they would be hunting cult of pleasure there? Adding that now, I didn't make that connection before like a derp. Good work.

Seperate pages[edit]

There is a lot of good work on the page but an awful amount at the same time. Shall we do seperate pages for 'High Elf characters' and 'High Elf Army list' in order to slim down the core article and make it more accessibe? - Alorend

Seems about right to me. I'd do it, if I wasn't such a lazy bastard (as if you couldn't tell from the half-complete Ogre Kingdoms units section and totally untouched Orcs and Goblins pages). Just remember the Category:Warhammer Fantasy and Category:High Elves tags. If someone makes pages, I will try to put pics up on them. --Thannak (talk) 00:36, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I have created a seperate page for the High Elf forces and put a more basic overview on the main article instead. Do the high elf characters though warrent a seperate page for themselves when Tyrion, Teclis and the Everqueen have their own pages already? I am not sure. The other option is just to slim down the main article again although I am loathed to interfere with another's hard work too much. --Alorend (talk) 16:21, 2 February 2014

Now that the history section has some structure to it, I think slimming it down would be a shame. What we have is a detailed narrative of 7000 years of High Elf history, which is what people will want to find. It is the character section that is keeping us from getting rid of the 'needs cleanup' template. I see no problem with having seperate pages for each character, but I'm not template savvy and will fail to keep it organised. --Darklight (talk) 10:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Since damn near every even minor character in 40k has their own page, may as well give Fantasy the same treatment. Otherwise we'll end up with over-large army pages and nothing else. Page bloat isn't a bad thing in and of itself though, as long as things are organized well enough the table of contents has some meaning to navigating the article. --Thannak (talk) 22:47, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Also look at some of the 40k templates, like Template:Marines-Forces and Template:Dark Eldar-Characters, as examples of how to easily link these articles together. Rather than having massive lists of links in the "See Also" section, you can have one template that you drop at the bottom that includes relevant categories and so on. --Not LongPoster Again (talk) 01:42, 3 February 2014 (UTC)


Some of the dieties lack their own pages, despite being linked to. This is because they were given enough importance to have their own symbol and name but nothing else in the 8e High Elf army or Heraldry books. I assume they were detailed in the Dark Elf book, or else will be in the Wood Elves book. Since I don't own those armies it's unlikely I will be getting those books and making those pages.

So they remain as a reminder for someone else who DOES have the material to make them a page and fill it in. I suppose as a result, the list of deities should be added to the Dark Elf and Wood Elf pages as well.

In Misc Fluff: Wood Elves carving their names onto waystones? Can someone spot me a source?[edit]

The wood elves also make extensive use of waystones, so it seems ludicrous that they would essentially damage them.

Can someone source that?
