    1500 Point Tourney

    Hey All.

    Im still new to Empire and my local club is having a Tourney in 5 weeks so im building my army from scratch for it (thankfully unpainted is aloud). Its a double elimination setup with a single list for the entire thing.

    My opponents will be: Orcs / Chaos
    Vampire Counts / Chaos
    Ogre Kingdoms
    Dwarf
    Wood Elf
    Dark Elf
    Lizardmen / Tomb Kings
    Dwarf / Beats of Chaos (Prob Beasts)

    And onto my (poor) Army:

    Hero’s

    Captain of the Empire
    Armour of Meteoric Iron
    Sword of Might
    Warhorse

    Battle Wizard
    Dispel Scroll x 2

    Warrior Priest
    Icon of Magnus
    Sword of Might
    Heavy Armour
    Shield

    Total Cost: 351

    Core

    20 Swordsmen
    Full Command
    -9 Halberdiers
    -5 Hand Gunners

    20 Swordsmen
    Full Command
    -9 Halberdiers
    -5 Hand Gunners

    10 Crossbowmen

    17 Flagellant’s

    Total Cost: 710

    Special

    7 Knights or the Inner Circle
    Full Command

    5 Pistoliers
    Outrider with Repeater Pistol
    Musician

    Total Cost: 296

    Rare

    Helblaster Volley Gun

    Grand Total: 1467
    Left: 33 Points

    I was wondering what to spend my last 33 points on? And anything i can do to help my odds. I was thinking of Van Horstmann's Speculum but after the first use everyone will know who its on reducing the effect somewhat.

    Just thinking about adding a small (5man) detachment of something to the Crossbowmen to send foward to flush out any fanatics or counter charge/shiled them...

    I would give this guy Dawn armour and a shield. That way he gets a 1+ save with a re-roll.

    Battle Wizard
    Dispel Scroll x 2

    Warrior Priest
    Icon of Magnus
    Sword of Might
    Heavy Armour
    Shield

    You can't have 2 swords of might. Maybe a sword of battle or something else.

    I like your list as a general rule.

    I would consider the following though.

    Have your warrior priest on a barded steed and attach him to the knights, then they re-roll failed to hits on the first turn of a combat.

    Have your general on foot leading the infantry, that way most of your army can benefit from his leadership.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    you could find 2 pts somewhere and upgrade your wizard to lv 2, or if you dropped 5-6 flagellants you could add a mortar though that woudl change their role form a line unit to a flank guard most likely

    I to new to empire to give much advice but both swordsman units are at 20, which means 1 lucky slot will deprave you of 1 points of combat reselution (and you are facing more then one army thats likly to have shooting elements in it), if you`ve got the money Id use some of thouse 33 points to add some men to bouth blocks...

    Another list i was considering...





    Captain of the Empire
    Dawn Armour
    Sword of Might
    Shield
    Warhorse


    Captain of the Empire
    Aldred’s Casket of Sorcery
    Enchanted Shield
    Imperial Pegasus
    Full plate
    Shield
    Lance

    Warrior Priest
    Armour of Meteoric Iron


    25 Swordsmen
    Full Command
    - 7 Halberdiers
    - 5 Hand Gunners

    25 Swordsmen
    Full Command
    - 7 Halberdiers
    - 5 Hand Gunners

    10 Crossbow men

    10 Crossbow men

    17 Flagellant’s

    7 Knights of the Inner Circle
    Full Command


    Great Cannon


    Grand Total: 1497



    Im not sure if this list would work or not. My concern is the lack of ability to kill "Big Nasty's" and magic. Thus the Flagellant's and Casket.
