Yo, I used to game Empire way back, like 4 - 5 years ago. Has anything changed? Codex? Models? Rulebook?
Also, if I remember correctly, Empire blew against Chaos and Eleves and everything in general....
Have they gotten any better?
Well, don't know about you but Empire never had a Codex...and they are still on average WS3, BS3, S3, T3 "average Joes"
And they were never a spectacular army, but they were very compentent, especially when fielded as a combined arms force. The new Empire is pretty similar, some funky new toys such as the Helstrom rocket battery and Imperial Outriders who are rather like dragoons. There are much better models now, like teh new Steam Tank (plastic) new Great Swords and Archers (also plastic), reissued miniatures of Kurt Helborg, Ludwig Schwarzhelm, Marius Leitdorf and an excellent rulebook which is regarded as well balanced compared to the power creep curve (ignoring Demons, Vampire Counts and Dark Elves).
Sorry, I've been into 40k for a month, and just wanted to see what empire is at. I meant army book, or w.e its called
What about Valten? That guy still kicking is good? Only guy I could actually accomplish something with.
- The emperor Karl Franz (lord choice and evil when on a dragon)
- 2 new characters (kurt helborg and ludwig schwarzhelm)
- Helstorm (a hellvolley type gun with missiles)
- Outriders (a more heavily armed pistolier unit)
And as been said, we recently got a whole lotta new models in plastic, so much so that at this point we are the most well endowed (sic) fantasy army.

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
There are some very nasty characters, Valten is no longer with us - you could use him as a Captain or Lord character.
The Emperor on a steed is great, he is a real powerhouse or put him on Deathclaw or a Dragon for a character killer par-excellence, carrying Ghal Maraz is a great way of blasting apart most mortal foes. The Reiksmarshall Helborg is a fantastic miniature, and again with his Runefang is a devestating character, especially leading a unit of Knights. Valten is no longer needed TBH...
Don't forget the Hochland Long Rifle which can snipe at any model and they don't benefit the "Look out sir". Put it on an outrider's champ. With BS5, he would have a good chance of hitting.
Archlector now can be taken and also put on a war altar. There's also some funky equipments too that can be added to improve the characters.
Some of the troops got cheaper point wise. Helblaster got nerfed where now you need to use the crew or engineer's BS to hit the target.
"Sigmar commands!!!" and.... "Blood for the Blood God!!!"
