I wanted to cram as much in as I could in terms of variety, I love great swords just not sure how good they are anymore.

Cheers

e. gave ToP to BSB and changed discipline standard to razor standard.

I would protect your BSB more. Maybe give him the Talisman of Preservation instead. Your wizard doesn't really need it. You have to miscast 3 times in the same game to kill yourself without getting sucked into the void of course. Your BSB on the other hand is going to see hand to hand combat. A 2+ armour save is good but I would include a ward too. Or the Dawn Stone. Maybe consider taking the Razor Standard on your Great Swords. -3 to armour saves is pretty decent damage output for any infantry block.

Other than that the list looks good. It has variety. You fast moving troops, blocks for grinding and a little bit of shooting too. Those are the most fun lists to play with, when you are active in all 4 phases of the game.

Thanks for the advice Lordcy, I might just spend the last 5 points on tormentor sword for a laugh. I was wondering through, will greatswords be alright without a detachment? I could split the two I have on my halberds so each block has 1 detachment, or I could scrap engineer for another 10 archers in 2x5 detachments.

Fun list.

No expert on Empire, but I think that many Greatswords can still function without detachments. I use 24 Swordmasters in a block of 6x4 and they perform well despite internet wisdom screeching at me.

Warrior priest ideally would help the greatswords out a lot better as its a decent combat unit
