The dark and high elf navy are the best around right but I have a question for you. How do they fight? Why are they the best around?
I know how the empire fights it's battles, via carracks and broadsides. What do the elves do? Do they operate like galleys, ramming enemy ships and boarding roman style, outmanouvering then capturing close quarters with superior weapon skill? Do they fire ballistae or cannon? Do they try and blast enemy ships out of the water? I know the dark elves have all types of nasties that follow their black arcs but what about the regular old corsairs? Just how effective would backward technology light ships be against an 80 gun carrack (I say carrack because I have no idea what Warhammer calls them)
They would have to be pretty impressive ballista to pierce the hull of a 15th century carrack or galleon considering half the time cannonballs fail to do so. I am interested on your thoughts, both opinions and facts.
