Hey, just wondering what can I expect in a battle against the empire. I play orcs and goblins, and i've only played against empire once in a 1000 point proxy game. This saturday is going to be a 2000 point battle. i know my opponent likes cannons and pisitoliers (he won't stop talking about how he thinks they are the best fast calv in the game). He likes that priest the gives hatred...or something and he like flangalents. i've seen him play with mounted heros on barded warhorses.. what can i expect? Thanks.
lots of orcs as they cost the same as a basic empire soldier but are much more nasty in hand to hand, throw in a unit or two of night goblins (with 3 fanatics of course) to mess up any steam tanks or knights he has (trust me they WILL mess up knights)in terms of magic, Foot of Gork and Gorks warpath are great when used to take out war machine crews (i HATE that spell).. the doom diver is another unit that kills knights like crazy....if you're really worried about the pistoleers a big unit or two of spider riders, or wolf riders should at least keep them busy.
just remember that whatever you go with, the more troops the better, dont just plan to stop him, make him adapt to you....and watch out for detachments...they are nasty
