So far we've seen some pretty nice rumors, a good selection of Heroes and the like. I plan to build an Empire force, since no one down here really has one. I've also noticed Empire and Chaos getting a lot of attention in other media, like Warhammer Online and Mark of Chaos. I'm pretty much sold on Priests with those videos, and each video showed off the Priest calling a prayer out that seemed to place holy aura on their weaponry. It never shows the extent of this feat, and I couldn't find anything near it in the old Codex, so I'm assuming it's a beefed up former spell or an entirely new one.
Anyways onward with the topic at hand. How competitive do you believe the new Empire will be? Do you think they will be better than the old Codex? What about detatchments, in or out?
Personally I think that Empire will be better (Though won't have most of those cheap (Cost wise, though some say ability wise as well) and very reliable magic weaponry and the like from last edition) I think the new codex will be more streamlined, seems GW is going for an easier way to introduce new players, and I have a bad feeling detachments will be out, much to most people's dismay (Middenheim list, I never used them).
I'm closely following the Priests, as they seem to be getting a beef up, were they used commonly before or not?
well in my experience with a priest i just used them agaisnt undead and chaos players (for the holyfire spell) but besides that they are good for making people waste dispel dice, for my mages to let loose their spells.
im looking forward to seeing the new handgunner and crossbow models
and im pretty sure detachments will stay. i mean its pretty much the only thing empire has going for them besides knights and mortars. i mean would you miss out on having two 20man units of handgunners with two 10 man detachments of even more handgunners. boy that was fun, it made my friends khorne call cheese.
i also hope they keep the von horstmans speculum since it pisses off vampires and lizardmen heroes.wyrmslayer to, also a bane of lizardmen
o and i heard the engineers are gonna be made into useful characters, something about toys they can take.
so thats my reply
I keep hearing this rumor that empire is gonna get pikemen. Any news on that?
Also, I just saw the preview of the Outriders-a unit of pistolers who ALL have repeater handguns. Presumably they will be used as a mobile unit of handgunners. I find them threatening...
Arena of Death Champion: Nexim of the Guldskullz Tribe. Fear my wrath!
Yeah move or shoot I hope, I don't want people calling cheese on me. I figured they would be devestating combined with handgunners, setting up shots and luring opponents into you're gunline. Are they fast cavalry? If so you can bait a unit, retreat, come back for free and unload with the handgunners and outriders. Whoa....I can think up tactics lmao.
Yes outriders will be fast cav unless you give them barding but i think the extra save will help instead i may take 2 units of 5 of them instead of just pistoliers.
I never really use them like that just running around and blasting the enemy to peices with the bs4 they will be exellant at close range also from other rumours the champion cant even take a repeater handgun just a repeater pistol and the sniper rifle which i find bit silly bs5 handgunner yes please ^_^.
i wonder what that bell shaped thingy the center outrider is holding? new weaponi hope!!!:yes:
Probably just a musician or item lol, I doubt a bell would make a great weapon. Can heroes dual wield pistols now? Since their is a left and right arm (Supposedly) Holding a pistol each? I'd find it fun to have a gunslinger captain running around causing a mess, maybe place him in a Pistolier or Outrider unit and have a hey day lol.
