So I'm trying to decide whether to start Empire or VC and in order to make my decision i thought it might be nice to try making a small 1250pt list
Van Horstman's Speculum
Rod of Power
Sword of Sigismund
Full Plate Armour
Marksmen with Long Rifle
10 Halberdier Detachment
5 Knightly Orders
10 Free Company Detachment
So basically BSB goes with Greatswords for Stubborn leadership 8 with re-roll, Warrior Priest goes with Knightly Orders and Wizard goes with Swordsmen
I was thinking since i have my wizard in a unit of combat troops maybe he would do better with VHS instead of my WP but not really sure.
So 2 blocks of troops march down middle with pistoliers protecting flank and march blocking and Knightly orders try and flank charge whatever gets in combat with swordsmen. Handgunners snipe BSBs and Wizards and thats about it.
Are greatswords too expensive in a game this size? would I be better off with maybe more core troops like spearmen or more swordsmen?
The only things in this list i dont want to get rid of are the pistoliers and the Warrior priest as I own them already and they are my favorite units in the empire army fluff wise(WP might be my favorite in Warhammer)
Thanks for the Future Advice!
The weapons of the other core units you could swap out just don't look as good.
Halbrediers have one less str but strike in initiative order.
Swordsmen have the same WS but thats about it in comparison.
Spearmen fight in two ranks but at lower WS. I honestly see these guys as a purely defensive core choice IMO. Made to keep the cannons and such defended.
