The Dark Elves are one of the villainous races/factions of the tabletop wargame Warhammer Fantasy and its related media.


Cruel, sadistic elves descended from exiles that left Ulthuan in the wake of a civil war. Their leader Malekith is actually the original leader of the losing faction and has kept himself alive for thousands of years through diabolical methods. Their entire existence is based around raiding for goods and slaves, and they have nasty habits like making sails and cloaks from the hides of their enemy races like dwarfs and humans. Unlike the Drow from Dungeons & Dragons they neither have dark skin nor do they live underground (except for one city) and they seem to take some inspiration from the Melniboneans of Michael Moorcock's Elric Saga. Dark Elves tends to be the evil counterpart to the High Elves, often fielding similar units.
