I was thinking about getting the Empire, and I am going to buy the Heraldry Book and Battalion (I already have the Armies Book). What should I get next and why?
Thanks in advance,
Cannons and/or Wizards maybe?
But of course, I have an (un)healthy obsession with big showy things like cannons and bright wizards so..... take this with a grain of salt.
I would be inclined to purchase the General Kit. 1 Battle Wizard. 1 Cannon/Mortar Followed by a Second Battalion box.
A) You need to fill your Lord and hero choices... that's pretty simple.
You're going to need some artillery!
C) Although its unlikely you going to field 16 knights, It's highly likely you will field a unit of 10! This leaves you with 6-7 spare for larger points games.
State troops are somewhat useless unless they are fielded in units of 30+, and a unit of 20 Great swords is the minimum you should run these fella's as well! The Hangunners/crossbows are your added flexibility dependant on your opponnent.
This should give you for E.G
General of the Empire
Captain of the Empire
9 Knights -General in here
20 Great Swords
40 Halberdiers -Captain BSB in here
OR 30 and a 10man Detach
+ champ & Hochland long rifle.
1 Great Cannon
Overall though this does depend dramatically on what points value you want to take the army too. But this is a fairly solid base around 1300pts and onwards.
