BDD 213 – SCGT Empire Army List

Empire army list

SCGT Empire Army List

On todays show I have a look at Steve Wren’s Empire army list for the South Coast GT.  A few weeks back Steve contacted me to ask for some tips on his list and make sure there were no glaring mistakes.  He had a few requirements in the form of unit that were already painted and his list was geared towards making the most of the units that he had painted for their look rather than just table top power.

His inital Empire army list was:

  • (Painted) Arch Lector, Great Weapon, Heavy Armour, War Alter, Talisman of Preservation
  • General of the Empire, Warhorse, Full Plate Armour, Shield, Giant Blade, Dragonhelm, Dawnstone
  • Captain of the Empire, BSB, Warhorse, Barding, Lance, Full Plate, Shield, Talisman of Protection
  • (Painted) Lv2 Battle Wizard (Heavens)
  • Master Engineer
  • (Painted) 29 Halberdiers, Musician, Standard Bearer
  • (Painted) 7 Inner Circle Knights, Musician, Standard Bearer, Banner of Eternal Flame
  • 8 Knightly Orders (lances), FC
  • (Painted) Great Cannon
  • (Painted) Helblaster Volley Gun
  • (Painted) Steam Tank
  • 5 Demigryph Knights, Musician, Standard Bearer
  • 10 Huntsmen
  • 10 Huntsmen

And after I gave him my thoughts and referred him to one of the UK’s top Empire players it was looking a little more tuned.

  • Wizard Lord, Shadow, Scroll
  • Arch Lector, Altar, Heavy Armour, Charmed Shield, White Cloak
  • Captain of the Empire, BSB
  • Captain of the Empire, Full Plate Armour, Shield, Pegasus, Sword of Might, Dragonhelm, Luckstone, Potion of Foolhardiness
  • Master Engineer
  • 28 Halberdiers, Musician, Standard
  • 7 Knights, Standard, Musician
  • 10 Knights, Standard, Musician
  • 4 Demigryph Knights, Musician
  • 3 Demigryph Knights, Musician
  • Great Cannon
  • Helblaster Volley Gun
  • Steam Tank

Overall I think it is a solid list and will look great on the table!
