Most of the time elves can reduce their opponents to 1 or 2 hits a turn as every one of their linemen is AG4 and has access to dodge. Skaven linemen are AG3 and do not have agility access. Linerats go down the first turn, or the second, or the third. But they go down. That leaves their positionals exposed pretty much every game. Or at least that's how it works for me. I don't remember winning a bash war against elves, especially AV8 elves... They have better defensive skills and armor than skaven.
