Current, unofficialised as of last Rules Review, horribly unbalanced dark elf warband: http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/Lustria3.pdf

The most up-to-date version of the warband can be found as an announcement in this forum. The current one is the Druchii Warband for Mordheim - Beta version.. This is what was sent to Specialist Games for evaluation and possible officialization.
And to conclude: our manifesto.

My name is Joel Stewart and I am the webmaster of Druchii.net - the
home of the Dark Elf Online Community. I am a huge Mordheim fan, more
so than Warhammer actually, and I am a little disappointed that the
Dark Elves (and Sharow Warriors) did not make the cut with the latest
version of the rules. Granted they can still be used as 'unofficial'
but that means that they can't be played with in tournaments. It was
mentioned that the elves would be redone and released in the future
and I am curious if Druchii.net can help at all in this process. As a
community we were instrumental in organizing the revision for the
Warhammer Dark Elf list and I believe that we can be of great value
for playtesting new 'versions' of Elves for Mordheim.
Although I cannot guarantee the sheer number of playtesters for this
possible revision as we had for the Warhammer revision (popularity -
you understand), I can guarantee that Druchii.net would take it upon
itself to see that a fair, balanced warband list would be evolved.
Please let me know if there is anything that Druchii.net could do to
assist in the development of the Dark Elves!

He replied with :Dear Kitrik,
Thanks for the email. Unfortunately I will have to keep this reply short, as
I'm swamped with stuff at the moment. In a nutshell, if you can come up with
a Dark Elf warband that works well for Mordheim, and which uses the
*Warhammer* miniatures range to represent the members of the Warband, then
I'll be happy to consider making it an official addition to the game.
Unfortunately I won't be able to make any new miniatures for the warband -
no, not even one! - so if the warband is going to work as an official
addition to the game it needs to draw on the currently available Dark Elf
range (and preferably without drawing on any of the old 'back catalogue'
range of DE miniatures for previous editions of the DE army list).
Hope that helps. Sorry that the reply has to be so brief!
So now we have a go-ahead on a full-fledged Dark Elf revision for Mordheim. We need new fluff, and new rules, while keeping everything within the current model-range.
Shall we elect leaders? Who wants to take charge of this?
For the record - I don't want to take charge of this - I have too many other things on my plate right now to dedicate more time to this. However I will definitely playtest my arse off for it!!!
