Hey, I'm stuck for what Hero choices to take with my Empire, as i always tend to start of my army lists with hero's i'm not sure where to go!

So i ask, for 1500pt games, what's the best Hero choices to take? What does everyone else take?

I was thinking 1 Captain for leadership, a priest for combat and a little magic output, also the extra dispell dice and then a mage with 2 scrolls.

Any ideas? :P
