This is just a very casual Empire gunline. I'm thinking of using it in a mighty empires league that I would be involved with hosting, with allot of new players. I just felt like sharing, but if anyone wants to comment regarding the glory of cannons, I'm all for it!

Your witch hunter can't scout with your huntsmen.

I dont know how you call that a casual gunline. That is a spammy list, and honestly I wouldnt play you with it. Gun lines of any sort are generally hated for a reason - it is boring as **** to play against, win or lose. Yours goes so far beyond, being entirely 100% shooty ... no thanks ...

I know allot of people feel that way, but its an easy list for me to run for a month long campaign run by a friend. I'm filling out slots and lending out my Warriors of chaos Chariot list to a newbie, want to test a gunline against it. I for one don't find it boring to be humans, with guns, trying to stand against hordes of undead, or Lizardmen, without a bsb, in a high point battle and dying or holding on for dear life. To be fair, I do not expect to do well, but its about fluff and fun Cheers and thanks!

Its not about being humans with guns; I play empire and vc, I have plenty of artillery depending on the list. It is building an army that rolls 400 d8ce in th3 shooting phase while bunkering back. Even if I have a list to destroy that, there is absolutely no fun in playing against it which is why people hate it.

Yea, seriously.

Stay away from gun lines. This is super boring to play with and against. I think I would not play you out of principle. This is Fantasy not 40K, there's a reason 40K sucks right now.

mmm, sure not fun to play against.(this list sure isnt any where near fun tho.. but i think it can be good. Switch some handgunners for xbows.. try to go woodelf style with loads of 5 archers.. 4x5 archers is way better then 1x20. + ad a bsb u really need one

Not sure why gun lines are so negatively viewed. I love them. Caught Nuln off guard and have to face blackpowder hell. I Love it.

Because they are boring as **** to play against ... you roll 800 dice a turn while we try to rush across the board with no tactical movement interplay at all ....

Well, it is fun to roll a ton of dice, and I won against an Ogre list, was defeated by High Elves... Bad rolls on my end. Continuing the campaign though. Modified the list a little.
