Elf Weapons

Postby DarkMage » Sat Oct 09, 2004 11:09 pm

Just curious, what do most CC users give their elves as a general weapon? Personally, I prefer to use the long ninja swords. But I wanted to know what the majority of other people use, so I decided to create this poll. I had to split the voting options into the main weapon categories because of the numerous amount of different weapons for each category (eg, swords could include those large chrome swords or cutlass). Vote or send a post explaining what type of weapon you would give an average elf and why. Would this weapon be different for elves of higher authority?

Hmm, I'd have to say bow and arrow.

Maybe it's just LOTR-desease or somthing but I think that elfs should be skilled archers who live in the woods.

Not that I've made any elves, but if I did, they would get a bow and quiver.

I'd also have some elves with knifes, and quite likely some with katana's. Probably teal katana's.

I forgot to put knives in as an option! :oops: If you want to submit knives as the average weapon for elves, place it under "Other" and send a post saying why.

This is a very tough question. I mean, do I go with bow or sword? Bow or sword? The bow may be most popularly associated with elves in the public consciousness, but in my mind, swords are at least as common, with both Tolkien elves, and elves of my own epic.

So I flipped, and went with the bow.

Spears and pikes always seemed "right" to me. Swords seem more cumbersome, and not like Elven weapons.

I haver bows of course. Some of them may use knives and straight swords since I'm a Tolkien lover elves could never have curved ninja swords. Never, never, never.

I like the ninja swords because I think they have an elven look in their design, and they're different from the rest of my swords. Plus, I've got about 15 of them, so they would come in handy if I were equipping an army or something...

You forgot one option, anything. I give my elves different weapons, depending on where there from and what there doing.

Same here too, but I voted "Bows and arrows" because I stick to the cliche of elven archers. Also, the only elven fig I've made is Gonderin, of CCRP and LEAGUE OF FORESTMEN fame, who, you guessed it, wields a bow.

I know that most CC users would probably give their elves an assortment of weapons, but I set up this poll to find out the general weapon would be for an average elf. If I had said 'anything', how would I know?
