I have made 1k points of chaos and they are quite nice i like the speed and the magic. I run it as all mounted with heavy magic, for k i would plan to go with 4 sorcs(2 atop chariot, 2 on barbed stead in combat with knights) and like 2 units of knights the rest being hounds and horsemen.
THat i have already settled on. But i like empire too. So iwanted to make 1k points of empire as well play both alittle and the one i like the most will be the one that gets to 2k first and that gets painted first and so on.
I like moving fast, magic, hard to kill stuff (healing or like jsut plain tough). I've looked over the army list and i've noted things that like alot. I like the core knight, i like the pistoleers, i LOOOOOVE the warrior priest, I LOOOVE the alter, i love the flagellants. actualy i love the everything in the dang book >< lol. Its hard for me to pic a way i'd want to play. I know more than anything that i want flagellants, i want warrior priest i want a alter.
I was hopinh you guys here could give me some direction, general empire tips, and such so that i can look at the empire armybook with enlightenment. though i am making a 1k point list i would like the info on a 2k list as i want to make my 1klist into somthing that can grow to 2k.
So i'll give some of my thoughts on what i might want:
-Warrior priest marching army
-Warrior priest lord and hero with knights and pisliers backed by 2 sorcs and some handgunmen.
(these next too would be like dreams of mine relised and if either cound be satisfide it would make empire an instant win lol but i dont know if they'd be posssible.)
-warrior priest lord with a combination of sorc and warrior priest heros in a kind of charge reseaving army. By that it be kinda like hang back wait for them to come to me then attack sorta thing. Unless up against a gun line then it would go to a more marchy thing (hehe i hope this one makes since.)
-This one is my biggest dream a army that could possibly be marchy that has like 2 warrior priest (one of which being the lord) then having sorxs of like magic lore for support
anywho those are my ideas. i orginaly wanted a steam tank but with flaggrents and the heros i dont see there being much elsei could add after that lol.( probly just my experience with chaos expensiveness though lol.
thanks to all that help
I run an infantery heavy list, 50 models at 500 points alone.
It's pretty much 2 blocks of CC men (greatswords and swordsmen) backed up with 2 detachements, 10 halberdier and 5 handgunners.
Supplemented with 2x10 handgunners, 10 xbowmen, a hellfire volleygun, mortar, 5 pistoliers, 1 captain, 1 wizard and 1 warrior priest it comes to exactly 1500 points!
As to your question, blocks of knights with a warrior priest can and will overrun pretty much anything, as i said in another post, everything in the empire book is a viable option, except for perhaps the helstorm missile launcher. It really depends on what kinda army you want to put on the field! I prefer my waves of Marienburgers to any knightly charge!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
The Hellstrom is great against horde armies, does a better job than the Mortar even. Empire Knights need to be used carefully. Having a move of 7" is good when facing the screaming infantry of an Orc army, but when Bretonnian and Elf cavalry can charge 2" more than you, you have to ensure that there is adequate reason for them NOT to charge you....

How do i make my knights safe? do i keep them ready o flank anything that charges my knights? Do i precent them with easier prey that if they dont charge will get them on the flank on my next turn anywho? Do i keep myself outof there charge ranhe and through like pistleers in the way and force them to move into my charge range then run the pistleer dude out of the way?
For the infantry block is there a way i could make light magic work with it? i know its hard to use becuase of it very limited range but i'd love to have an army that can capitalize on light magic (its my favorite lore). instead of a hell fire volly gun could i run a steam tank?
hehe answers lead to mmore questiosn hehe BUt the light magic thing is like the best in my opinion i want a light magic army more than anything. I also was wondering... i see all these neat bond spells that empire can get any of them worth while?
