After playing 40k for a while I've decided to branch out and try the Empire. This list is infantry heavy because I like infantry and because I don't imagine knights riding out for a 500 point battle. They will be included as the army gets larger. I also wanted to get a solid core of troops painted up to being with and not have to worry about it all later.

20 Swordsmen 145

The Hangunners are going to sit on a hill and shoot while the Swords march forward. The two Sword units can protect one of each other's flanks and the Halberds can protect the outside flanks. The captain will join one of the two Sword units.

Its a nice list.
You're going to want your detachments to be larger though. If a single one dies you lose your flank bonus and that is no good at all.
I would think about using one big block of 25 and having 2 detachments for it. That would leave you some points leftover to beef up your missile unit so they don't panic (and have enough shots to cause panic checks) and do some other things.
I know everyone loves handgunners but I personally prefer crossbowmen. You're going to have some trouble against any army with longbows.
For 1000pts I would definately add those knights and a cannon so you can deal with monsters.
Also read the board rules on posting army lists. You are not allowed to post the point values of non upgraded units.
