Well having recently returned to the Empire for the third time in my Warhammer expireience,the last two failed after I discovered 40k,twice.:p


Anyway to keep it short and simple.Here is the list with which I plan to make my return.It will competinig in our fantasy league(I would like to mention that I won the 40k version:p)so it need to be able to play with the big boys,but winning isnt a priority,just being able to last to the 6th turn.:rolleyes:

As you can see I am 22 points over,anybody have any smart solutions how to shave down those points?

Also the Tactic is simple.Greatswrods hold center and all the mounted units and the Ogres dance around the Greatswords.

get rid of the repeating pistol on your outriders and in addition the champion. that should do the trick.

also, the talisman of protection are not crucial. Your warrior priest can cast wardsave upon himself should he need it.

Your bulls should, if possible, be ironguts instead. S6 is more needed in your army than plenty of S4. Very handy for the odd Hydra or shaggoth.

I would prefer to have the warrior priest with armour of meteoric iron and icon of magnus. This way your greatswords wont be running if you get double charged by large fear causing units which is very likely in a list with only one infantry block.
The rest of it looks really good.
