Iv decided to start fantasy warhammer and i choose empire as a starting point. Il start by saying i have done alot reserch on the forums so i know somwhat of what i should aim for creating a good list.
119-(1) Warrior Priest
-Armour of Meteroic Armour
130-(1) Battle Wizard
-Level 2 Wizard
-(10) Halberdiers Detachment
So what do you guys think? Its ment to be a fun list that is well rounded. It has Cavalry, Infantry, Shooting, Magic, Artilary. I chose the empire cause i wanted a more realistic army, one that cant be called cheesy. I dont care if i crush people, but of coarse id like to win atleast 50% of the time with some practice. I dont want to enter tournies and i dont face cheesy tourny armys either, so i dont have to build a army that can compete. BUT id like a STRONG army none the less.
Well ttbrando, welcome to Sigmar's nation! I am actually very excited about you writing a 1000pt list since I have been in a WFB league where we are at 1000pts now, so this is giving me some good ideas. Well, here are my thoughts:
-You have too few swordsmen in my opinion. I will say personally, I haven't used them (because the models are wayyyyyyy expensive for me) but I do have some thoughts on them. Unlike our dinky state troops, these guys are expected to last the whole battle since they have very good armour and are stubborn. But when you are running bare-minimum like that, you going to easily lose a rank bonus and be outnumbered and I might get concerned about that loss in static combat res. However, at a 1000pts, it might not matter that much and if you can get the charge off, then you can still kill a ton w/ that warrior priest in there and still easily win combat. What you might want to do instead is give them a detachment of halberdiers and at worst, will draw fire, at best, negate those ranks and help you win that much better.
-You have no fast cav. Pistoliers, according to a lot of non-Empire players I know, are the best in the game and I can definitely support that. Even in general, fast cav is a necessity to harrass, to take out war machines, draw out the frenzied stuff and even protect your flanks (because he will be trying to protect his own and not going after yours). Give them a try and even thrown in outriders once and a while, their repeater rifles can definitely spell a lot of doom for people.
Otherwise, I think it is solid. You take advantage of our diversity in units, being jack-of-all-trades. Personally, I think that the strongest lists are ones that are balanced because that is how we work, we wear them down and swarm them will all of our stuff. But there are definitely other ways I am sure, I just am not sure what yet. Good luck to ya man!
Pretty cool list, i just got a 1000 pts list too, if it were me i'd take more handgunners and take out the halbardier's. But to be honest its your army do what u like and just have fun.
