Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well after returning to Fantasy in time to see a brand spanking new edition (yay's for some things, boo's for others), i was just wondering what the main changes have been to the empire army book for this version?
Normally, i'd go out and buy the new book, but at the moment i've decided to concentrate on finishing off my skaven (my empire army is pretty small), but as i'm drastically low on money, and i'm not planning on doing anything major with my Empire for some time, i thought i could get the jist of what's been altered..
For reference, the following is what i have available as a working force (the rest are broken bits in my old colour scheme, although with a fair bit of work i could round them up again)..
(i've managed to put my old army list down somewhere safe, and forgotten where..)
1 Empire Champion/hero.
1 Warrior Priest.
1 Empire Engineer.
1 Wizard (mounted).
Anything i should be aware of that has changed? or will i be able to get away with using the current book (when i find it)..
bear in mind this is just for friendly games to help ease my friend into playing, not actual comptetitive stuff (i'll scrounge together some cash for the book then)
well... thanks for the help then?
most of the core is about the same (1pt cheaper I think) there are some great rule alterations for the warpriests to make them a tiny bit more effective. Magic has changed, other nuances with the units you mentions (pistoliers fight differently). Cannons are probably the same as well as the knights for the most part. There have been a couple of new units added to the list. You really didn't specify any details about when the last time you had played was. There have been quite afew changes in the entire game since 7th edition came out last september. Those would be worth looking up. Get a copy of the Battle for Skull Pass starter book or the actual rulebook for 7th edition and look through that.
The Skaven book hasn't changed, but things are different in general with the 7th edition.
