Its not pornography, but the second best thing: witch elves!

After having some modest success with my dark elves, I realised that I still haven't managed to use a witch elf very successfully. While my (recently deceased) witch elf did manage to rack up a few star player points(and a nice rack!), it was mostly due to luck and picking on skinks and goblins.

While witch elves comes with some decent combat skills, they are just too damn fragile to be considered real bashers. Frenzy is a great ability, but it tends to leave the poor girl unsupported, and with strength 3 and Av7 she doesn't last long. In fact, she spent most of her time knocked out or badly hurt, until a human blitzer blocked her and accidentally killed her. Even with block and dodge, she eventually went down in most matches.

Im not quite sure if it would be worth replacing her. I can see a potential use for her as scorer, since she's fast and comes with dodge, but scorers tends to get blitze quit alot, and she's not very fit to surviving that. The only other role I can think of for her is assassin: run past and blitz weak players like throwers, catchers and skinks. Again, this role makes her a primte target for a blitz, and will probably leave her unsupported.

Any other ways people use their witch elves, or have had witch elves used against them? I could use some better ideas.

Seems to me like that u are afraid of getting killed beacause of 7av understandable... then I guess that u don't play skaven a lot?.
Cause in that team ur best players are gutter runners and Storm vermins gutter runners tend to die very quickly, and often.
still I think its worth it of having gutter runners and also witch elves as scorers this is just to win matches not a longer plan or life expectancy.
with 4 blitzers and 2 witchelves on the opponents half there is a good chance that he will go for another beacause every single one of them is a potential scorer.
My tactic demands that u have at least accurate and safe throw with ur thrower. because the other players try to lock the opponents players except the players mentioned above. While ur thrower is the only one standing on ur own half then the longbomb comes. And td, simple enough.

i love my witch elves
with sidestep they can push out without worrying about getting pushed out back
plus, you can protect them pretty well with spare linos
just make sure that, as all dark elves should, all your doubles go to guard
then things will work out

With a few skills, a Witch elf can make an excellent Free Safety. Having a well devolped WE in your backfield frees up more players for pursuit and stuffing the play before it crosses the LOS. After getting Block, you begin to take advantage of the two traits she was given.
Frenzy begs for Strip Ball, if she ever gets AG then so much the better for picking it up after.
Jump Up works great with Diving Tackle, people are paranoid about being fouled, but in the backfield her chances of getting stomped are less.

Both of these pairs are well served by Tackle. One roll to dodge away at -1 is scary, it's too bad she can't get Prehensile Tail to go with it. Sidestep is a juicy pick and you I would always want to take it early, but when I make "role" players I tend to stick to plan.
Rolling Doubles should go to Dauntless, as she then becomes a much sexier Troll Slayer, good for facing Big Guys.

The best way to get her the SPP is to keep her out of scrums, and shepherd her to some TDs in her first few matches.

Summary: Block, then Diving Tackle or Strip Ball, then Tackle or Sidestep, your choice. First doubles should go to Dauntless and any stat bonuses should be taken instead, as they are all great for a WE. After 31 spp you're on your own.
