I'd say wood elves. they are the BEST when it comes to shooting. or were you looking for the best firepower? if so then dwarves.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Why are there NO elves in there. They are by far the best shooting armies out there.

All three types have awesome firepower

i dont think so. compare the firepower of a gun and a bow. or a cannon to a bolt thrower. but the best shooting is wood elves. best firepower is dwarves.

Hmmmm, no.

The army most able to make an effective fire-power (shooty) force is without doubt Empire.

'have what ever Empire have and more'

Well, no. The Empire war machines are far more effective if a little more unreliable.

Empire fire-power unit choices are on the most part also far-far cheaper than the dwarfs allowing yuo to fit far more in.

Wood-Elves really dont do all that much damage with shooting, they do more than many armies but nothing compared to the Empire, the Wood-Elf strength lies in luring and trapping units etc.

Elves are most definatley not the most powerful or effective shooting forces.

they get more hits with shooting. personally i'd take a wood elf GG unti than an empire handguners unit anyday.

now your gonna say "well thats because your an elf fanatic" well that is might be true, but im sure there would be a lot of people that would agree with me.

I have a feeling new wood elves are going to be a little less shooty and possibly more balanced when new book comes out.... A guerilla force not snipers.. sorry!

The only real difference between Empire fire power and dwarf is that the Great Cannon is nicer. On the other hand, we get flame cannons.
