Hey all :cool:

So I am thinking of reviving an old Empire army. I have not really checked out the new rules, nor have I played against Empire in 7th Edition, so I guess I am kind of swinging in the dark. I do like the new models though, and I would love to take my old army off the shelf.

I was wondering if you all had any suggestions as to how I could expand my salvagable Empire army. Here's what I have found so far:

12 Knightly Orders
12 Pistoliers
1 Great Cannon
1 Mortar
1 Helblaster
1 Steam Tank :rolleyes:
15 Greatswords
20 Swordsmen
10 Crossbowmen
10 Free Company

Since my main army right now is Bretonnia, the Empire's versatility is a nice change of pace and I would rather not add any more cavalry. Magic, shooting, and infantry appeal to me. Things the Bretonnians aren't savvy to.

All advice is greatly appreciated :D:D

I have played against Dwarves, Wood Elves, Dark Elves, and Orcs, and out of asll of thoes, only the orcs got more than their points worth for their mages and infantry. (Waaaaagg is a killer spell).

Shooting is quite powerfull, but no fun to play with.

I suggest you focus on infantry, as they are, in my oppinin, the most fun troops to play with.

Avoid magic unless you have a GREAT custom spell list, like orcs and undead.
