Empire army book rumours
- Released first (according to Namarie) or second (according to 75hastings69) quarter 2007
- Written by Graham McNeill (Games Day Atlanta 06)
- Expect more religious iconography
- Army deal expected in December 2006.
UPDATE: The studio guy said that the empire will have elements like the 'League of extraordinary gentlemen' - guns hidden in walking sticks etc. Also the engineers can mount a "hunter killer missile" on other warmachines for a st8 one off shot. I got the impression that the empire book will incorporate multi themed lists such as engineer themed etc etc. These are only rumours though.
- New plastic regiment that will let you create Spearmen / Halberdiers and/or Swordsmen. Nicely detailed and not over the top. 10 models per set.
- New plastic regiment set that will let you build Handgunners or Crossbowmen. 10 models per set.
- More add-ons to the plastic knights set (hammers, wolf pelts, panther cloaks, alternate helmets etc.) (provided by 75hastings69)
- Plastic kit that allows you to make 6 Pistoliers or Outriders. Lots of little extras and a new unbarded horse.
- New Kurt Helborg (metal mounted model)
- New Ludwig Schwarzhelm (metal mounted model)
- Either a plastic Flagellant regiment set or a handful of extra metal Flagellants
- New rocket-type war machine (probably metal)
Shown below are some concept models by Felix Panigua. The new Empire plastics may or may not look like these, though these will NOT be cast up for production.
