    2k Empire List Help Needed

    So I'm winning some stuff on eBay and realized I can make an Empire list from it. I figure I'd do 2k cause one of the items is an Elector Count. I made a list but it is only roughly 1100pts. I want to use the stuff that's already on the list cause I'm winning it but I need to know what else to include to bring this army up to 2k.

    Here's the list so far:

    Unnamed 2000 Pts - Empire Army

    1 Elector Count @ 298 Pts
    General; Great Weapon; Full Plate Armor; Griffon

    1 Griffon @ 200 Pts

    12 Greatswords @ 186 Pts
    Great Weapon; Full Plate Armor; Standard; Musician

    1 Count's Champion @ 12 Pts

    15 Halberdiers @ 121 Pts
    Halberd; Light Armour; Standard; Musician

    1 Sergeant @ 10 Pts

    16 Handgunners @ 128 Pts
    Empire Handgun

    16 Handgunners @ 128 Pts
    Empire Handgun

    12 Spearmen @ 72 Pts
    Spear; Light Armour

    13 Spearmen @ 78 Pts
    Spear; Light Armour

    1 Great Cannon @ 100 Pts

    3 Crew @ 0 Pts

    Casting Pool: 2
    Dispel Pool: 2
    Models in Army: 92
    Total Army Cost: 1111

    The Handgunners and Spearmen may have Musicians, Standards, and etc but I'm waiting to hear back. I figure they could be used as detachments. Anyway, I've never really looked into an Empire army although I did consider them before. So, I need help. What do I need to make a viable 2k list? I just need to add on to this list. Also, should I make any of the items I have in this list detachments?

    I'm figuring that I'll need some more Heroes, another Soldiers of the Empire box (to make Swordsmen or Halberdiers), and Flagellants or something or Knights. But, I need YOUR help.

    Oh yeah, don't bid against me or I'll place a hex on ya. Just kidding. But, seriously don't bid against me.

    The great swords need to be beefed up with a warbanner if not a few more GS
    Join the spearmen together into one unit this will give you a solid core.
    Break up the Halberdiers and one unit of gunmen and make them detachments, one each for the spears and Great Swords.

    This will at least will get you on the board using what you have.

    Next buy should be some free company to use as detachment to free up the gunners, and a wizard or two and that horse mentioned above.

    New Empire players must understand detachments, your key to success.

    My apologies. I forgot to mention that I ended up not winning most of that stuff. Instead, I won some items and am purchasing others to complete my 1k list (please see http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ad.php?t=49265 (1k Empire List))

    If i were you i'd make your greatswords a round 16 and your halberdiers 20. The give your halberdiers the griffon standard. After that get another great cannon and a unit of pistoliers. Finishing that get 2 units of 6 knights with musician and round it up with 2 solid blocks of 20 swordsmen with full command. Use any remainding points to get some more handgunners
