Well, it looks like Empire is going to be my next army project, and considering that every big set GW sells has the empire knights in it, I was wondering what experienced Empire players find as optimal weapons for them?
Lances of course have their wonderful use on the charge... and to my knowledge knights seem to be meant for a 'charge in, break, and continue' unit (of course, that was my experience when playing against Brettonia).
What about great weapons? are they viable? would a lance just be vastly superior?
There is no competition any more. GWs only give +1 strength now, instead of the two, they require two hands, so cut back on the beloved armour saves, and they strike last, to boot.
So yeah, lance and shield all the way.
Which is sad too, because the White Wolf Knights have such great models. You can convert them, I know... but it's just not the same without their hammers.
