Level 3 wizard lord - Lore of light or heavens (not sure which to take yet)
Warrior priest - Heavy armour and shield
30 Halberdiers with full command.
- 10 Free company (Detatchment).
17 Greatswords with full command
Hellblaster Volley gun
Hellstorm rocket battery
Total : 996 points.
Would like to take the Xbows as a detatchment (so they do not cause any panic etc) but my understanding is that detatchments do NOT count towards core requirement points. Makes it hard for me to include them in my lists which is a shame because they were a real selling point of the empire to me initially.
Plan is, if I take light magic, use xbows and war machines to draw the skaven to me where I will buff my combat units to crush the skaven infantry. If I take heavens I will use the re-rolls on hellblaster and hopefuly get a lightning offensive spell and rely more on firepower to win me the game. Hard to decide between better offense from afar and being better equipped to deal with skaven infantry.
I do not expect to face anything nasty as my opponent wouldn't use a furnace or Abom in a 1k game so cannon not needed. I expect to face alot of infantry, a wizard or two and likely gutter runners.

Any thoughts? I have the game this weekend so wanted to make sure my list isn't totally useless. I think it might be pretty good but I haven't played empire much yet.
