Daily 120 – What Would Curry Do – The Empire

What Would Curry Do – The Empire

After recording the Empire review for Bad Dice Podcasts Episode 93 I decided to do a Daily show on what I would do with the Empire army.  I have tried to build a list that I think would be out of the box and not only unique but also fun to play with.

My idea stems from the fact that at 120 points the basic Captain of the Empire on a Pegasus is a bargain.  I wondered during the review at why Empire PLayers didn’t use this guy more often.  I decided that a list with 2+ of these guys would be fun to play with and would also be quite powerful.

As I thought more about that idea it dawned on me that I could do a full on smoke and mirrors Empire army seeing as the General of the Empire can also ride a pegasus and is also very cheap.

So here is the list I went for.

General of the Empire, Full Plate, Shield, Lance, Pegasus.

Captain of the Empire, Full Plate, Shield, Lance, Pegasus.

My battle plan for the list would be to use the archers to win the deployment battle and also to choose a target before the game to try and shoot every unit at every turn.  The tanks also pick a target to pin down or destroy while the pistoliers and pegasus riders remain flexible and go where needed.

Feedback

If you like the list please let me know by leaving a comment below or dropping an email to bencurry@baddice.co.uk I would love to hear if you think this list can work and also what items you would take on the 3 lord choices with the spare 130ish points.
