Okay guys been playing with a friends army of empire. This is the list as you can see i have avioded being cheese so no war alter or 2 steam tanks or 4 cannons.

Instead I have loads of state troops.


Arch Lectore of Sigmar + 2nd Hand Weapon + Armour of Meteoric Iron + The White Cloak + Van Hortsman's Speculum

Warrior Priest of Sigmar + Great Weapon + Heavy Armour

Warrior Priest of Sigmar + Great Weapon + Heavy Armour

Battle Wizard + 2nd Level + 2 Dispell Scrolls

25 Spearmen + Full Command + Shields

25 Spearmen + Full Command + Shields

20 Swordsmen + Full Command

10 Crossbowmen

10 Crossbowmen

15 Flagellant Warband

6 Knightly Orders + Preceptor + Standard Bearer

15 Great Swords + Full Command

5 Pistoliers + Outrider + Repeater Pistol

5 Pistoliers + Outrider + Repeater Pistol

Great Cannon

Hellblaster Volley Gun

Well the idea is that the 2 Warrior Priests will go into the Spearmen (who will be 6 wide) to form a solid defense. The Arch Lector will go in the Great Swords which with the knights will form a good counter attack. The Crossbowmen will guard the war machines while Flagellents will guard my flank.

So what you guys think.

I was thinking of adding Halbradiers as detachments what do you guys think?

Looks OK. I'd definatly want some detachments for your block troops (especialy on the Greatswords). I'd think about maybe getting hand weapons and shields for the Warrior Priests to boost their survivability. I'd also think about getting musicians for the Pistolier units to boost their chances of rallying.

Not much point to the second level on the mage if the mage is just going to be a scroll caddy.

I agree that the Pistoliers need a musician.

I would either drop the second group of Pistoliers or the Great Swords for a second cannon to help deal with dragons and the like.

outriders insted of one pistoleer unit
and gunners insted of crossbows
other than that an effective list
(try a hellstorm rocket battery)
