View Full Version : AoS Empire (Formation + 2 Warscrolls)

04-08-2015, 04:23
My local GW is running an AoS tournament, and in the spirit of conciliation I am considering taking part. :wtf:

Army composition is 1 Formation + 2 Warscrolls. Here is what I am envisaging (standards and musicians all around):

State Troop Detachment

1 Empire General on foot
10 Spearmen
10 Handgunners
10 Crossbowmen
10 Greatswords


Steam Tank
Empire Cannon

The plan is to deploy a strong centre in 3 ranks, consisting of a rank of Handgunners (to fire and absorb casualties), a rank of Spearmen (to provide 2" attacks in support of the Handgunners) and a rank of Greatswords (to counter-charge). The General will stand at the back, providing inspiration and keeping out of shot.

One flank will have the Crossbowmen and the Cannon, while the other will have the Steam Tank.

I will either stand and shoot and let the enemy come to me, or advance in a large block.

If I get to pick a Sudden Death condition, I will either pick Endure or Seize Ground.

Suggestions and comments on army composition or tactics would be greatly appreciated.
