The band of Shadow Warriors known only as The Grey take their name from the ashen cloaks that conceal them. Descended from those who swore fealty to Malekith before his treachery was revealed, The Grey have slain Dark Elves beyond counting in a blood feud spanning five millennia. Since the Sundering, they have battled ceaselessly to redeem the honour of their family names, the burden of shame and obligation passed from father to son.
This Regiment of Renown gains the ability Snipe which allows them to shoot without being revealed and Loec's Shroud which helps them hide and escape enemies. Snipe is useful as it requires the foe to have an enemy nearby in order to target this unit with melee or ranged attacks. Thus, these units are some of the ultimate harassing units, sneaking up and targeting a vulnerable unit and kiting back into hiding with their ability. If they get caught, they also have decent melee stats and may win a prolonged engagement.
Like every other High Elf archer unit outside of the Sisters of Avelorn, their armour piercing at ranged is quite bad so avoid heavily armoured targets unless you want to simply overwhelm with volume of fire. Notably, their armour-piercing in melee is good for an archer unit.
