Hey all, ==Me== here.
I thought I had the Empire bug beaten. I was wrong. I saw the new plastic Stank and the Empire Reinforcement Battalion at ==My== FLGS and I got bit all over again.
Here's ==My== proposed list, going for low cost and competitiveness.
Templar Grand Master-Sword of Power, Shroud of Magnus
Warrior Priest-great weapon, Armor of Meteoric Iron
Battle Wizard-level 2, Staff, Ring of Volans
Battle Wizard-level 2, Dispel Scroll, something
20 Swordsmen, full command
detachment: 10 Halberdiers or 10 Free Company or 10 Swordsmen
10 skirmishing Archers
6 Knights, full command
2x 5 Pistoliers, musician, outrider w/ repeater pistols
That should be close to 2250, I don't have the book atm. This comes from 1 Battalion, 1 Reinforcement box (20 state troops, flagellants, 2 wizards, helblaster/hellstorm), a Stank, Warrior Priest, Archers, and a box of Pistoliers.
I think it looks ok. I've got a cheap block of SCR from the Swordsmen, flanking detachment, handguns, skirmishers, ITP Knights with MR2, 3 war machines, a Stank, fast cav, and plenty of dispel/power dice and bound items.

Looks good. I prefer Detachments of nine, though (in 3x3 formation), as that generally makes them take up only a small amount of space.20 Swordsmen, full command
detachment: 10 Halberdiers or 10 Free Company or 10 SwordsmenA Marksman with a Repeater Handgun or Long Rifle can enhance this unit quite some.10 HandgunnersI'd go with XBowmen here, but your call.10 skirmishing ArchersI'd consider enhancing them with the Steel Standard or War Banner. They'll be housing your (expensive) General, so I don't think either of those banners can hurt.6 Knights, full commandI generally run a unit of 15 with success, as CRes means nothing to these guys. Drop a few if you need points.20 FlagellantsNice choice.2x 5 Pistoliers, musician, outrider w/ repeater pistolsGo for something less specialised here. A Cannon/Mortar is a generally lethal and balanced configuration, plus you'll have 25 extra points.2 CannonsLooks solid.Steam Tank
It looks like a potent list that can take all comers with quite a degree of competitiveness. I'd suggest a few tweaks, as covered.
Hope this helps.
