I've been trying to come up with a GW Gamesday list for my Empire army. After some play testing I've found that the Arch Lector and pair of battle wizards that are in the list will never change or be removed. The Arch Lector goes in with the Greatswords who are in a 7x3 formation. Each of the wizards will go in a Swordsmen unit that is 5x5. The Halberdiers are in a 3x3 formation to allow them to move through small spaces with little to no problems. The Warrior Priest is included with the Knights of the Inner Circle. They are used for small unit smashing, ect. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. Thanks

Seems like a very solid and balanced army. The only thing I'm not so sure of is the Helblaster Volley Gun. Too unpredictable for my taste. With the points I would field some Flagellants. These guys have yet to let me down. Just a thought....

I would trade the helstorm (really unreliable) for a unit of pistoliers. But you can't do that as you don't have the specials! I also find anything more than 2 large units of infantry + detachments tricky to deploy - I would change 1 swordsman unit for flagellants (nice blocking unit) - either 1 large unit of 2 smaller roadblocks. You would also be able to get a larger unit of crossbows/handguns with the change.

Characters are OK - not sure about ring of volans though. Rod of Power is the best item available to empire (and one of the best for any army) - I would try to find room for this.
