I play Ogres, Skaven, Imperial Guard, The Lost and The Damned & CSM. I'm really excited about starting Empire.
If I buy the Army box set, what else would I need to buy in order to have some fun with the empire as a second army(Ogres being my main)? I don't really know what style I want to develop coz I don't have the book, but it will mainly be based on the Army Box Set if you guys say it's any good.
Am I right in thinking that it has 2 rare choices in it Helstrom and Flagellants - what's the point of that in a starter set?
Many thanks, big up the Sigmarites!
Any unbreakable unit in my opinion is worth taking. Flaggellants can hold up the enemy for the entire game, allowing you no end of retaliatory charges. And the models look great IMO.
It's like having ranked gorgers without the T5, STR5. But still, ranked unbreakable troops?! Fantastic.
get a battalion and a reinforcement box set, plus a mounted war priest. if you take him you add a soild fighter and caster as well as allowing you to take a flagelant unit as a core unit.
While all those already posted are great ideas and i agree with them totally. Flaggs are only good for tarpits there not as tough as they used to be but they not have bonuses but you need to kill some of your own guys to gain them.
I would go for more cores you need more state troops the battlion box is a ok addtion but you only get 20 state troops in total (10 combat/shooters).
I'd go for a few boxes of state troops and free company boxes at least 4 boxes of states and 1-2 boxes of free company but its totally depends what you would like in your army. Empire being the jack of all trades the choices are endless. I would recommand some cannons or mortars or both! they a must for any empire force.
For characters a nice warrior priest, wizard set or hero set is a good start even tho you get a hero set in the army set.
I just had bit of a idea if you bought 2 army sets that would be a a really good start for your army but just a tad expentive tho .
good luck with your army if you decide to start join our glorious empire. Also any idea of a state colours at all you like?.
