not played empire for a while so came up with a new army list any comments on improvments
Armour of Metric Iron
Sword of Power
40x Swordsmen (Mother)
20x Halberds (detachment)
20x Handgunners (detachment)
Banner of Duty
A good solid empire infantry line.
Like it so far.
Though I feel the greatswords are a little wasted in this list, but drop the shields from the halberdiers detachments then you have points for four more if you want a bodyguard for the general.
I do feel you're light on characters, maybe take units of ten handgunners and add a captain or two for the swordsmen units, nothing fancy here just full plate armour and a halberd would surfice. Just gives a bit more punch.
With out a cannon you could struggle against monsters though.
Just some ideas for you, hopefully they fit in your plan for the army mate.
yep ok thanks for the tips will drop out the greatswords for a captain sounds abit more pratical
I'd also try and get a few more banners in your list. Consider making the Handgunners a 'normal' unit and giving them a Std and the Banner of Eternal Flame. It will give you something against Regenerating monsters. Not only that it will help you out in the Blood and Glory missions.
Good point about the blood or glory mission.
You do need some more banners, save some points from the general becoming a captain and maybe a warrior priest.
Another regiment would help here.
I handy thought of it when I first read the list.
Can you have 5 special choices in a 1500 point list? I think the codex only allows for up to 3 at under 2000 pts.
Current caps are for identical special and rare choices below and above 3k points.
