I'm unsure what to do with the last 112 points. I was thinking of adding some Pistoliers, but there may be something better. Thoughts?

you can never have to many cannons

A third Cannon? really? That seems a little boring

I would for sure add the pistoliers, they are just too good to pass up.
Another thought is to upgrade the knights to inner circle - do you have your heart set on knights panther? why not make them more knights of the white wolf, inner circle them, and you got 2 str 5 knight units - who can be charged as well as charge. More in keeping with your theme too.
dont bother with another cannon, unless it's a different sort such as hellblaster or rocket battery - so boring with 3 cannons, 2 is MORE than enough!
But for 2000 pts you need more units on the field - forget upgrading the knights, grab some fast cav and with points left over just buy an extra statetrooper or 2 and tack them behind the main ranks as cannon foddor.

Good call, Jind Singh! I enjoy the fact that you play Empire now as well as Orcs so you can help me out with both my favourite armies! :D

The Pistoliers it is! I have Knights Panther in there because they're S5 on the charge even without being Inner Circle. It also still fits the theme since they have a CHapter House in Middenheim.

Empire and Orcs & Goblins are by far my 2 favourite armies in the world! The reason my 3rd army was Ogre Kingdoms was they will work for both sides, so it added to them.
Deamons were a one trick pony - looking back I had taken nearly 10 years out (I left hobby when I was 22, and came back at 31), so when I came back I came back with a vengance - soon growing my old collection of deamons into a massive horde (now hit 8500pts of them).
BUT THEN IT HAPPENED! Up to a point I was having so much fun, close games, hard fought draws/wins, but all of a sudden I found my game mind and it all went downhill. Crushing victory after victory - to the point that they are sitting under my bed, collecting dust, until a player specifically asks for them - or like next month theres a rock-hard comp were I heard everyone turns up with AAA killer lists!
You made a good choice, you wont regret the pistoliers!
