I'm sure that someone will expound but to cover the simple part of it, cornerstone strategy is to anchor your slower/immobile units on one end of the field and your fast units on the other end. War machines make for tempting targets so if the enemy diverts more to go after them then he will leave a flank more open to your fast units. I find that this works better in larger (3K+) battles because small armies are easier to re-mobilize and compensate for this tactic.

also the slow moveing can be n the center with the faster moveing n the flanks, very efective for all elfs.

This (http://www.asur.org.uk/ulthuan/cms_view_article.php?aid=58) might prove useful to understand it a bit better.

ahhh denied flank.... i have always used this sort of tactic in warhammer, and also in 40k. its probably the oldest tactic out there. never heard it called cornerstone before, but makes sense, analogy wise.

Thanks
