    Dang friend. 1000 pts Empire!!!

    Stupid friend made me post his army list. The army list is made up of 1000 points.

    Heroes:
    Captain
    Lance, Hand Weapon, Dawn Armor, Barded Warhorse.
    108 Points

    Core Units:
    19x Swordsmen
    Detachment of 8 Spearmen = 48 points
    Detachment of 8 Spearmen = 48 points

    229 points

    19x Swordsmen
    Detachment of 8 Spearmen = 48 points
    Detachment of 8 Spearmen = 48 points

    229 points

    16x Free Companies
    Light Armor Upgrades

    96 points

    7x Knightly Orders
    Knights of the Inner Circle

    198 points

    Special Units:
    1x Great Cannon

    100 points

    1x Mortar

    75 points

    TOTAL: 999 points.

    Ok. This was his first list, so comments and tips for making it better are appreciated. He was thinking of pistoliers because he doesnt have anything ranged. Or handgunners as detachments. But since handguns are move-or-fire, i didnt think they would be that useful.

    To me Dawn armour is too rich at a 1000pts level, I'd go for normal full plate and get a 1+ save. I know swordsmen come in boxes of 19 but they both should be 20 strong. I wouldn't use spearmen as detachments, use free company instead (they're cheaper :yes: ).

    i can't get a 1+ save, even with a full plate. Can i? Full plate is +4, plus the shield, and a barded warhorse. Only +2. But what ever. I dont want to use to much money so im only going to get 2 Empire Soldier Boxes. If i can find extra models, (prob militia) then i will make them 20 model units. I'de rather use spearmen cause they do better as detachments i think. They acutally have an armor save, unlike free companies, so i'm gonna put the free companies in a separate group.

    Spearmen are slightely more expensive and only have a somewhat better armour save...
    And the free company have 2 attacks per model, which is quite good for doing the countercharge move. Spearmen only get to fight with 2 ranks when they don't charge...

    So for detachments, In My Opinion, the free company are better. :yes:

    You can get 1+, 4+ for full plate, +1 for shield, +1 for barding & +1 for being mounted, A 1+ save, also Free company do much better for detachments, the extra attacks will help, i cant see the benefit of having spearmen has detachments even swordsmen would do better
