so I'm just barely starting an empire army after getting a little tired of my ogres. I think that warrior priests/arch lectors are the coolest option for empire heroes/lords.
Now that I'm setting up my first army lists I started to wonder if warrior priests were allowed to carry dispel scrolls. Can only wizards carry them, or are any characters allowed to carry arcane items? (sorry I don't have my rule book handy)
No, that ain't allowed, so you just gotta keep it to the lovely free dispel die.
You do have the option of going "mostly" priests, and taking one wizard as a "scroll caddy"...I thought about doing that, but in the end I decided it was more important to take a captain to tote the imperial standard around for me...

they certainly seem to make good generals in under 2000 point games, and certainly can be a difference maker. But yeah, 2 WP, 1 Wiz with scrolls and the Captain probably are better combo.
I reckon Luthor Huss makes a good general inthe smaller games. He's almost as good as a captain in close combat, and is a step above the average warrior priest.

I run an all cav army with 3 WP and an AL all decked out with bound spell items, I've yet to lose.
WARRIOR PRIESTS ASSEMBLE!!!!!!
3 WP with all th bound spell items,
that's quite a serious magic phase, and with no miscasts!
and 5DD is nothing to laugh at.

My Brother plays Dwarves and VC. The Vamps he always has loads of magic users, the Dwarves naturally have good dispel, plus he will throw a runepriest in. I would really love to squeeze 1-2 WP's into a list, particularly against undead for the Soulfire goodness! , but always find that to take him down I need good captain to challenge and wizards loaded with dispel scrolls to stop 'raise the dead'
What is best combo vs VC in <2000pts?
1 Wiz Lrd, 1WP, 1 Wiz, 1 Capt?
Against Dwarves I avoid magic in favour of cavalry strikes and flanking infantry. Is it best to go all out magic with a WP or two as standin captains, or just sprinkle WP's for the Righteous Fury. To be honest i probably wouldn't use against dwarves but wondered how other people used them?
