View Full Version : Which of these DoW units compliment Empire best?

Right now I'm in a toss up of what DoW choice I want to take for my Empire army. Either:
Beorg's Norsemen
Ogre Maneater

NOTE: I already regularly take Ironguts because my army theme excludes knights.

The norsemen and berserkers are a tradeoff. It´s either cheap norse with flails or great weapons where every guy is capable of dishing out serious damage (Norse), or a not so cheap unit where the individual guy doesn´t do much damage, but is quite survivable and the regiment includes a real kickass fighting character (Beorg). It depends on what you prefer.

I am not a fan of the maneaters, altough I sometimes play 2 single maneaters for their stubbornness (but nothing else, they´re quite expensive for what they can do) in my DoW army.

Yea, if I were playing DOW, I would definitely take some Maneaters seeing how they take special slots in their army instead of rare.

EDIT: Darn.. I also just remembered that Maneaters take up 2 rare choices in other armies that aren't DOW or OK... well.. that bites. Definitely makes them less appetizing. I guess it'll just be a toss-up between Beorg and normal norse.

The Empire doesn't seem to have light calvary, so go with Oglah Khan's Boyz...

Or well... you are trying to avoid calvary. So I guess it comes down to what you think your army is lacking between strength and defense, since you are intentionally giving up speed.

The Empire has pistoliers which are as good as fast cav can get.

Yup, which is what I regularly include in my army too.

I just don't take heavy cav.
