    +1 for Grey Elves

    As for troops, honestly I like the current line up in the wiki.

    Grey Elves work for me.
    Elvish Alliance or Brotherhood sounds more like a unified confederation rather than the minions of a powerful mage.

    A mix of arcane and druidic units would be pretty cool, so I think the current line up is pretty boss.
    Engineers might need a different name/mechanism.

    +1 grey elves. I also agree with Troy's suggestion that they could just be called sylvan elves and wild elves could contrast with them later. I don't like the idea of elvan alliance, which implies they are a composite group. When we said in-between, I thought we were drawing on different qualities for a unified group.

    +1 rider units from above and also ranger and druid.

    Purifying (?) Archers Higher level archer unit could have arrows tipped with 'bless' type spell, having both a physical impact and a magical impact on unhallowed units and creatures.

    didn´t know this existed already. Though I think it looks a bit too "classical". Looking at the unhollowed units I would like some more untypical elven units in the game instead of the standard line up like "swordsmen", "archer", "ranger" and I don´t see the purpose for an engineer and pioneer with elves as well as a sorcerer! They are "in-between" elves, so I would change the sorcerer to a druid who is much more sticking to nature.

    +1

    As for unit lists I've got nothing. I don't have a strong feeling for what in between is supposed to mean and feel that any unit I suggest for them would take away from what high and sylvan elves can have later. Since they won the vote though I'll wait to see what those who voted for them come up with and maybe I'll get a better feel about what in between might have that high or sylvan wouldn't.

    I like Grey Elves.
    And for the unit list i am with Asmodai:
    Since i want High Elves and Sylvan Elves in later,i am not really sure what units now to suggest for Grey Elves...

    I agree. I don't like these conglomeration sounding names.
    Does "Elves" need to be part of the faction name?

    This thing is being produced in Poland and sold world-wide. The Tolkien Estate holds different rights in Europe than in America. Same with Tolkien Enterprises. If you know anything about these two entities, they love litigation more than the works they claim to represent. No need to piss them off unnecessarily, IMO.
