Well, I suppose it depends on how you plan to run the attack...if the
humanoids deployed landing parties to cause havoc in the streets, then walls
would be rather important...besides, the elves can't have every inch of
landing space covered in an attack.  It wouldn't be that hard to sneak a few
small landing crafts in.

Oh, well then, I hope the humanoids at least give the elves a decent burial
in space. :)
