dwarves and gnomes being used for the technological races is also right (although their not out yet ^^) i just dont like the fact that it is going to technology brings with it guns and gunpowder *hiss*
Ranged combat is always difficult to balance range, damage, rate of fire. I have played few games that have neither made ranged useless or over-powered. An Elven hero that is godly with a bow would not be to bad so long as an army of them cant be made.
Technology Vs. Magic has the same problem as ranged combat easy to mess up hard to get correct. I am one person who would rather not see gunpowder in a fantasy setting unless it is used exclusively as an explosive bomb by siege engineers.
