Hi all,

First of all I want to use the oportunity to wish you all a MERRY CRHISTMASTS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I am a new WH FANTASY player. I will be playing THE EMPIRE.

Taking into consideration that I want to build a BALANCED list as a whole I have been proposed to use bellow list as it is a WELL ROUNDED ALL COMER'S LIST.

Templar Grand Master - 259 pts
Shield, Runefang, The Other Trickster's Shard

Captain of the Empire - 143 pts
Battle Standard Bearer, Full Plate Armour, Shield, Ogre Blade, Dragonhelm

Battle Wizard - 125 pts
Level 2, Dispel Scroll

15 Crossbows - 155 pts
Musician, Standard Bearer

29 Halberdiers - 194 pts
Musician, Standard Bearer

9 Inner Circle Knights - 250 pts
Musician, Standard Bearer, Gleaming Pennant

Great Cannon - 120 pts

Great Cannon - 120 pts

30 Greatswords - 350 pts
Musician, Standard Bearer

3 Demigryph Knights - 184 pts

5 Pistoliers - 100 pts

TOTAL POINTS = 2.000 points

I would appreciate your help with my bellow questions and concerns:

1. What do you think of this list? Would you improve something?

2. Which is your advice regarding the RANKS configuration of the infantry and knight units (ROW * COLUMNS)?

a) 29 Halberdiers
b) 15 Handgunners
c) 30 Swordmen
d) 9 Inner Circle Knights

3. Proposal to bring the list to 2.500 points? (maybe 1*STEAM TANK + 1*VOLLEY CANNON + 1 PRIEST/ENGINEER/HERO)?

4. How can I manage detachements in this list?

Thanks for your allways GREAT help.

Decent list, i would say. But ... Runefang on the Grand Master is 100 pts in magic already isnt it? can take the shard then!
Also, i would increase the seize of your damage units like the greatswords, in my experience you need at least fourty, since they go down quite fast in combat, and since you strike last .. its nice to have a couple of ranks.

Besides that .. give your list a go and find out how it works.
