    2500 pts Empire Split Army Semi Competitive

    Thank you for reading my post. I am getting back into Warhammer Fantasy after not playing since 7th edition. I am going to purchase an army and begin painting and I would like to discuss army lists before I begin randomly purchasing miniatures. My army doesn't need to win first place a tournaments, but merely needs to be fun to play yet effective enough to win half my battles.

    I am not certain that the long empire gun line is really for me and so have avoided one here. I've tried to put together two hammer & anvil armies here and both can be found at http://www.matthewcampbell.com/TwoEmpireArmies.pdf

    One of the armies is Magic Heavy, the other Magic Light. I'd like to model the Greatswords up with scythes as Morr cultists. I'd like to put both generals on Morr Altars. For the list that has Demigryphs, I'd like to paint them as crows.

    I have never played Empire and have yet to play 8th edition. I'd really like to know if either army is at all competitive and if I'm making any major mistakes.

    Thank you again for reading.

    Hi welcome to the empire and welcome to 8th. Right first thing I will say is you have put a lot of points into characters and as a result the rest of the army lacks and that is on both list. Also Lvl 2 wizards are not really worth it unless you are under 100 pts, a Lvl 4 will do you much better. Also empire really need to hold the battle line and you have no captain bsb. At 2500 pts you just don't have anything to deal with some of the silly list out and about. Also a Character on a chariot is never a good idea, on the charge you are golden after that you will give in to static combat res.

    Lords

    Arch lector- 204
    Heavy armour
    Fencers blades
    White cloak of ulric
    Helm of the scaven slayer

    Wizard lord- 255
    Lvl 4
    Death(this is very short range so you may wish to rethink this)
    Dispel scroll
    Talisman of endurance

    Heroes

    Captain- 141
    Full plate
    BSB
    Enchanted shield
    Talisman of preservation

    Wizard- 100
    Lvl 2
    Metal

    Warrior priest- 120
    Great weapon
    Armour of meteoric iron

    Core

    39 Swordsmen- 303
    Full command

    Inner circle knights- 484
    Musician
    Standard
    Banner of swiftness
    Lance and shield

    Special

    Great cannon x2

    29 Greatswords- 395
    Full command
    Razor standard

    4 Demigryth knight- 252
    Standard
    Musician
    Lance and shield

    This is a good well rounded list in my opinion of course. I would most also go for another lore rather than death, Beast may be a good idea.
