Hi guys I need help building my list
At the moment I have
40 spearman with full command and shields
With 2 detachment units of 20 halberdiers
And I have 10 hand gunners which comes to 600 points
I really want to include reiksguard knights
And I really want to include a General on a griffon with bloodroar and two heads
But not shore how to add them and still make a good all comers list
So I will leave it to you, you can add anything you like.
Anyway thank you in advance and I
Look forward to reading what you come up with
Well, unfortunately, step one in making a credible empire list is "don't take spearmen.". Halberds and swords are good, spearmen are terrible.
I can see a general on a griffon making an awesome centerpiece to your army. I'd give him a runefang and the other trickster's shard.
I do like reiksguard. But mainly as an escort for Karl Franz on horseback. If you're only fielding one unit of knights, make it inner circle knights with great weapons. They hit like a ton of bricks, considering that they're a core choice.
For your state troops, you want 2-3 units of 35-40, each led by a priest or battle standard bearer. My own 2k list has two priest-led units of 35 swordsmen and a unit of 30 greatswords escorting my BSB. If you have 2-3 units of staties, a hurricanum also makes sense.
You honestly don't need mages if you have priests, but if you want one, maybe a L2 lore of shadows guy or a L1 lore of beasts with the signature spell.
Artillery... I can no longer recommend it, except maybe a pair of cannon in larger games for killing monsters and chariots and stufff.
