Not a massive task, but my gaming club is doing an escalating league starting at 500pts. Normaly i have no problems working out an army list on anything between 1K-2.5K, even at 750 i dont find it too difficult, but with empire, at 500pts, im just struggling a bit with the veriaty of choice for units, and the number of models i should look to be including in each unit.
I'm looking at the minute at 25 swordsmen fc, and WP with GW. Not sure if a detachment it the right wat to go, or war machine, or another blocked unit, maybe even Greatswords to get some extra strength in the list. Im even considering a unit of pistoliers. I like the models and inted to take them in larger lists even if they arent what you would call top tier, thing is, is 500pts the right place to start with pistoliers with so many other things to consider?
(not got my book to hand so off top of my head)
So, so far;
Warrior Priest = 71pts
Great Weapon (may swap for enchanted shield and hand weapon to boost armour)
25 Swordsmen = 205
Leaves me with 223(ish)pts to play about with. Anything you can suggest or has worked for you in small games?
Thanks for an suggestions,
223 is an intetesting number of points to have. It makes almost anything feasible, but leaves the question of what to do after that, since most options would leave an awkward number of points.
I think a unit of pistoliers (with musician) is a decent option, but it leaves ~125 points, then what?
IG since 1999 __ DA since 2002 __ Tau since 2005 __ SoB since 2007
Brets 1997-1999 __ TK since 2009 __ Empire since 2010
not got my book right now, but helblaster, 5 knights or 20 man halibard squad would fit nicely into 125 pts. Haliberds would give extra troops, while blaster can mow down squads.
