    Making a 1,500pts Tourney list

    I need some help in making my 1,500pts Empire army for a tourney. This is what I got:

    - Battle Wizard on foot
    - Battle Wizard on warhorse
    - Luther Huss / Warrior Priest on barded warhorse w/ Great Weapon
    - Heavy armoured Captain w/ Great Weapon
    - Four hobbits (alternate captains)
    - 10 Reiksguards w/ Full Command
    - 10 White Wolves w/ Full Command
    - 19 Spearmen w/ Full Command
    - 16 Swordsmen w/ Full Command
    - 16 Handgunners
    - 10 Archers / Huntsmen
    - 10 Greatswords
    - Two Great Cannons
    - Mortar

    I thought of something like this:

    HEROES:

    Captain
    - Armour of Meteoric Iron
    - Great Weapon
    *) Goes w/ Spearmen

    Warrior Priest of Sigmar
    - Barded Warhorse
    - Heavy Armour
    - Great Weapon
    *) Goes w/ Reiksguards

    Battle Wizard
    - Barded Warhorse
    *) Goes w/ 2nd White Wolves-unit

    CORE:

    19 Spearmen
    - Full Command
    - Shields
    - Detachments: 6 Handgunners & 9 Swordsmen

    10 Handgunners
    - Marksman w/ Hochland Long Rifle

    5 White Wolves

    5 White Wolves
    - Full Command

    SPECIAL:

    9 Inner Circle Reiksguards
    - Full Command

    Great Cannon

    10 Greatswords
    Full Command
    - Detachment: 5 Archers & 5 Archers

    What do you think? I don't know what to get for the BW and the WP (magic items).

    I like the list, nice n balanced. I have a few suggestions: first, drop the inner circle down to 5 or 6, you don't need ranks with knights, the warrior priest will make this an awesome hammer unit. I'd consider giving them the war banner. Also, I like to give my warrior priest leading inner circle the icon of magnus so they don't have to worry about fear (caused by so many enemies), especially with no lord, testing at 8 ld. For a little spice of life, maybe give the wizard the van horstman's speculum. It will help him survive in combats with the knights and maybe take down some enemy characters. Who is your general? I like the list, I think it can do very well.

    drop an archer detachment and add another handgunner or something. The list looks much nicer. You should get some pistoliers, but for now that list is pretty sweet. What's your general battle plan?

    I've got 5 Pistoliers / 5 Outriders (Empire knights modeled to be Pistoliers (riding Barded Warhorses))

    Hmm, i guess the big problem would be freeing up a special slot. could make the knights not inner circle..but your list look spretty good anyways.
