    Empire 2000 pts. Friendly (most likely against Dark Elves)

    Please tear this apart I'm new to the game and don't know anything about Dark Elves. Total list point is 1999 pts.

    HERO
    Battle Standard Bearer 134 pts.
    -full plate, pistol, Razor standard

    Warrior Priest 92 pts.
    -light armor

    Battle Wizard lvl2 120 pts.
    -Power Stone

    Battle Wizard lvl1 90 pts.
    -Dispel Scroll

    CORE
    20 Halberdiers FC 120 pts.

    20 Swordsmen FC 145 pts.

    40 Swordsmen FC 265 pts.

    20 Crossbowmen 160 pts.

    16 Handgunners Marksman 153 pts.
    -Hochland long rifle

    10 Huntsmen 100 pts.

    SPECIAL
    20 Great Swords FC 230 pts.

    1 Great Cannon 100 pts.

    1 Mortar 75 pts.

    5 Outriders 105 pts.

    RARE
    1 Hellblaster Volley Gun 110 pts.

    BSB goes in with the 40 swords
    Warrior Priest with the Great swords

    The wizards I'm unsure where to place them yet... Their lores I'm thinking life for the lvl2 and beast for the lvl1 in the hopes of making my guys tougher and stronger

    I'm unsure whether or not to take out the full command from the Halberdiers and use them as a detachment 10/10 on the 40 man sword unit and Great Swords. This would allow me to better fit my Warrior Priest.

    From what I know about my opponent it wont be a monster army but more infantry based.

    So after getting brutally annihilated three times Its time to make some improvements, at least I hope they're improvements.

    2 Mortor 150 pts.

    I'm not sure where to place the arch lector for his hatred but it would be in either blocks of infantry.
    The BSB will go in with the Swordsmen.
    I'm planning on a wizard in either handgunner unit, more than likely life and beat for their lores.
    The engineer will of course go with the mortors.

    **I'm unsure if I should go with another Hochland rifle instead
    ***I'm thinking that maybe 15 Halberdiers would be a better choice just for their armor save and they have better strength, but the militia get double attacks at the same weapon skill.

    I'm certainly no expert on Empire (you've played more games than me with my Empire) but I'll say my bit anyway.... Comments in blue.

    You can't have 2 suits of armour. The Dawn armour and shield will give you a 3+ re-rollabe save if I'm not mistaken. Is that really worth it? It's ok against basic troopers but any Hero/Lord will laugh at a girly 3+ Save. Consider just grabbing a Ward save or maybe some funky combo? Fencers blades and glittering scales is always fun. Or the Sword of blood shed and potion of might.

    Also, where is his weapon? You should at least give him a great weapon or something!!

    Good good, squeaze the Dawnstone on this chap. Re-rolling 1+ Saves is good.

    Battle Wizard lvl2 130 pts.
    Van Horstmann's spectulum
    As a Chaos player I hate this item. Have shame....

    Battle Wizard lvl2 130 pts.
    Rod of Power

    I'd maybe bite the bullet and grab a Level 4 over the two Level 2's. Or grab a Level 4 AND a level 2. Shadow and Life are amazing lores. Shadoe especially if you're having trouble in combat.

    Master Engineer 92 pts.
    -Light armor

    looks fun to me. I've always wanted to try them out but maybe he wont be that useful. Maybe drop him and use the points to upgrade a wizard to a Lord.


    CORE
    39 Swordsmen FC 259 pts
    -13 Halberdiers (detachment) 65 pts.

    Looks good. I'd consider a mini magic banner for the unit. Banner of flame or something funky. up the Halberdiers to 15. You need to keep that rank there and T3 men in light armour aren't hard to kill.


    x3 10 Handgunners Marksman 315 pts.
    -Hochland long rifle

    H-Rifles are VERY expensive and just don;t seem worth it to me. If you like them stick with them but maybe put the points elsewhere?

    10 Huntsmen 100 pts.

    SPECIAL
    19 Great Swords FC 220 pts.
    -13 Militia 65 pts. ***
    Definately grab the flaming banner for these chaps. They're your big scary hammer unit that can actually cause some wounds. Causing fear in cav, chariots and warbeasts is always fun too. Ignoring Regenerate though is golden seeing as every Skaven and his pet rat seem to have it now.


    5 Pistoliers 90 pts.

    2 Mortor 150 pts.

    1 Hellstorm 115 pts.
