I was thoroughly kicked to the curb by a reasonably competitive looking Empire army (silly amounts of gunpowder and generating more dispel dice than I was power dice) so I have re-written the list a bit and was looking for a little bit of feedback on it from my fellow warseerites.

Lords

Tyrant - Tenderiser; Crown of Command; Heavy armour; Mawseeker
Slaughtermaster - Talisman of preservation; Cookbook; Ironcurse Icon

Heroes

Bruiser - BSB; Runemaw; Mawseeker
Butcher - DS

Core

16 Bulls - SB; M; Ironfists
16 Bulls - SB; M; Ironfists
3 Bulls - (this is a bit of a filler as I am unsure what to do with the points)
45 Gnoblars
45 Gnoblars

Main lessons learned from my game;
1) Do not over rely on gut magic to provide protection - Trollguts and toothcracker didn't come off once :cries:
2) Irongut hordes are not awesome or win :rolleyes:
3) Slaughtermasters on carpets look amazing but in reality get sniped by cannons :cries:
4) Defensive Tyrant builds are not the way forward... He is big and burly.. Make him bigger and burlier :skull:

Questions I have remaining:

1) Is the second Butcher overkill? Do I drop the cookbook and give the SM a DS?
2) How do I deal with warmachines... Trappers and carpet were my answers but neither worked tremendously....
3) Scraplaunchers - Are they as win as is thought...

What do you think boys (ans the occasional girl)

Hi,

Not much can stand up to an Imperial Gunline if the Empire players know what (s)he is doing. So maybe you didnt had such a bad amry list in the first place. The list you put down here is a bit plain i think. Not sure this one has enough punch to win a battle. Hordes of Bulls are a pain to take out, but i would say this is way too few units.

Takes different troop types to do different jobs.

Good luck

Surely some Gorgers are in order, even if they just cause some mischief in the backfield rather than actual damage?

So maybe losing a unit of gnoblars and gaining a gorger is appropriate... I like that (less to paint) :-)

How about a couple of lone man eaters as well? Send them warmachine hunting or take out annoying detachments....

It wasn't a true true gun line... He had some flagellants, greatswords and swordsmen. There were 3 mortars and 3 cannons though....
