I was playing against a Dark Elf army the other day and was playing the scenario "Heroic Last Stand". Brief explanation is i get one third of my opponents army and i start on a hill on the middle of the board. I am allowed to put a coloured banner in the middle and al units of mine within 6' are unbreakable. If the enemy come into contact with it, it is destroyed. I am allowed any kind of units, no 25% rules. If i destroy one of the opponents units then it returns from the table edge it started on but if it had a character in it they do not return. If he kills me within 1-2 turns then it is a crushing defeat for me. 3-4 and it is a narrow defeat for me, 5-6 is a draw and 7-8 is my victory. I won this battle but it wasn't very hard.

Army list:
19 speamen
captain, banner, musician

20 swordsmen
captain, shields

3 demigryphs
inner circle, halberds, barding, magical standard

9 crossbows

captain of the empire
greatsword (in spearmen unit), meteoric armour

Captain of the empire
hammer and pistol (in crossbow unit), meteoric armour

Master engineer
hochland longrifle

this is what I used against a 1500 point army of Dark Elves and i won but i was wondering if there are any better units i can add or different ways i can reform my army to make it more effective. I have all the money so any ideas are welcome.

Incredible. I'm not sure you need any Tactica. :p If your'e looking for list advice, I'd try the Army List subforum. Otherwise, have a look here:

This second site has a great tactica, they also run e-battles vs other armies via threads where they discuss pros and cons of every single decision made.

thanks, will repost thread on army list subforum, check it out if you wanna. Also if you want to have a look at my Empire army then i will be uploading a youtube video in the near future of it all painted. I am basing it on a stark army from Game of Thrones. I have made them all cloaks, it looks sick :)
