So guys I started writing the battle report last night, but as I was writing up his army list it didn’t look right, so I started adding up his points (as I have the empire army book) and I basically stopped after 2600 points! The guy cheated beyond cheated, and during the whole game I was getting so frustrated cause everytime I got into combat it was like, “oh ya I got like three characters in this unit too, and they are all kitted out with magic items” and during the magic phase it was “so I have a powerscroll, dispel scroll, book of ashur, channelling staff . . . .” it was just ridiculous, I don’t know why I didn’t think of asking him to see his army list!
Needless to say I got crushed. However, some incredible combo’s he used on me that I recommend for any potential future empire players.
Hellblaster with engineer is that good. Use it to shoot at elite units as S5 with armour piercing is very effective.
Grand Master with runesword and other trickster’s stone/helm (whatever). The runesword always causes a wound, no armour save, and making him re-roll ward saves is amazing! He can kill almost anything.
The chariot that adds +1 to hit. WOW! His basic **** spearmen was hitting my 17 point guys on a 3+. Add a warrior priest and if you can get mindrazor (which of course he did once a turn as he got 4 channel attempts plus channelling staff) and your ****** empire guy is amazing.
