BDD 280 – Alternative Empire


Alternative Empire

On this episode I talk about my idea for an Alternative Empire list as mentioned by Andy Potter on Twitter.

Andy asked if Empire could be played without Light magic or Demigryphs and this episode is my response.

I wanted to base my list around the 6 fast cav units and put the rest of the army together to support them.

  • Battle Wizard Lord: Dispel Scroll; Level 4 Wizard; Lore of Life; Warhorse. 243
  • Grand Master 155
  • Grand Master 155
  • Captain of the Empire: Warhorse (barding); full plate armour; shield; Battle Standard. 109
  • Warrior Priest: Warhorse. 77
  • 10 Empire Knights: Preceptor; musician; standard bearer. 250
  • 14 Inner Circle Knights: Inner Circle Preceptor; musician; standard bearer; great weapons. 380
  • 5 Outriders 105
  • 5 Outriders 105
  • 5 Outriders 105
  • 5 Pistoliers 90
  • 5 Pistoliers 90
  • 5 Pistoliers 90
  • 5 Reiksguard Knights 135
  • Steam Tank 250

That comes in at just over 2300 poinst so leaves room for some magic items and other toys in the list.
