    3000 point Empire Themed Army

    This is an army list i have decided to create ive decided thats going to use bretonnia men at arms as empire infantry, (I honestly think the new empire state troop models look like crap, my opinion). Im also planning to use a classic grail knight on foot model as my lord and hero. Now here is some fluff on my army.

    HISTORY: Versalius. A small province of the Empire during the Nemisis Crown campaign, was taken over by Bretonnia as they expanded there lands. However, the Duke appointed to the region turned out to be a cruel tyrant and the people there began to suffer greatly. However, a Captain of the Dukes Men at Arms, formerly a native of the Empire province decided that these injustices of his people should go on no further. This mans name was Alaric. A few weeks after the Bretonnia occupation Alaric and the majority of the former empire soldiers levied into the Dukes ranks reblled. In under an hour those of the Dukes guard who weren't slain joined the revolt, and the duke himself impaled to his bed by Alarics sword. Renowned as a hero and great leader Alaric was appointed Noble and protecter of the small province of Versalius by both his men and the citizens. A few weeks after this event Empire Karl Franz appointed Alaric as Elector Count of Versalius for his deeds.
    THE PROVINCE OF VERSALIUS: Located on the north western border of the Empire with Bretonnia this provinces terrain is a nightmare for all calvary armies. The region is rocky and packed with small mountains. The keep of Bismark, home of Elector Count Alaric is itself positioned up against the mountains, the keep carved from the very rock. Around the keep for a few hundred yards the land is bare and rocky, battle scared by several attempts to take it. Below the keep on the rocky, rolling green hills is the village of Tetonia, the only village located in the province. Many times have these villagers been forced to abandon their homes to the torch of invading Bretonnias or marauding orcs or chaos followers. A tough and strong people, having indured the hardships of a harsh ruler and a province packed with foes the people are strong, and self reliant. Rebuilding everytime the village is destroyed. In other words taking this province has been proven not to be an easy task.
    WARRIORS OF VERSALIUS: The men defending the Keep are as hard and jagged as the terrain around them. Alaric himself is known to his people as a gentle and kind ruler, but to his enemies they cures his name and fear him. As the Duke of Bretonnia had left behind a vast armory full of Bretonnia armour and weaponry Alraic as converted these assets into his military. More heavily armoured and armed with long stout oak shaft spears they prefer to fight from a defensive position as they are a small province and are usually outnumbered. Ranks of stout spearmen anchor their battle line with Alaric himself at the front of his unit of great sword body guard. Since being to far from Nuln the accses to gun powder is limited and what they have is very precious. For this reason they have no handgunners and limited artillery support. They counter this with ranks of armoured crossbowmen launching deadly armour piercing shafts at the enemy. The spearmen and crossbowmen make up the backbone of the army. The little artillery they have is almost never taken from the keep except in the most dire of situations. Calvary is also rare to come by as the terrain of the province and is a nightmare to most horses. Having no heavy armoured knights what so ever the army relies on fast moving groups of pistoliers constantly patrolling the province borders. They ride smaller more sure footed horses that are better adapted to the rocky terrain allowing them to get away fast to report enemies movements and postions. Even though they fight all enimies of the Empire with hatred and vigor, they have never forgiven the people of Bretonnia for there harsh crimies and will always be seen among armies that march out to face them.
