    Why aren't there hammer-wielding Empire units?

    Looking to get into WHFB and specifically the Empire and I've been wondering why there's a lack of hammer-wielding soldiers out there. You'd think that with the Sigmar-worship they'd try to emulate him to a greater degree. Like say instead of Greatswords you'd have Greathammers.

    Is it a case of being practical instead of flashy?

    Have there been any rumours about such units (apart from possible Pikemen) in the new Empire book?

    Well you could always covert swordsmen to have hammers, and great swords to have great hammers. Don't let the standard models prevent you from doing what you think is cool with your models.

    Well I was thinking of passing off some Teutogens as Greatswords. Seems the hammer is more favoured by the Ulric-worshippers, which fits into their background. Sigmar was of that rather brutish era where the Wolf god was supreme so maybe that explains his Hammer-loving. The Empire views itself as more cultured so they go for swords...

    I think I'll convert some "Swordsmen" into hammer-wielders.

    But beyond aesthetics, the Cavalry Hammer is a Knight of Ulric weapon (at least for now). Just seems odd is all.
