EMPIRE!

They are the true jack of all trades, master of none of the warhammer World. The things I like about the empire is there ability to have the tools to take on any army out there (Cannons, Helblasters & Steam Tanks.) You can do so much with an Empire army:-

1) Go all out Infantry army
2) An all cavalry army
3) A army of Sigmar, Arch lector, warrior priests and Flagellants
4) Beat the Dwarfs at their own game and run a gun line

Unlike other armies (Such as Dwarfs, VCs and Daemons) the Empire can take part in every phase of the game. They can be frustrating to use at times because there psychology and it will let you down from time to time. However, when the army works there not much out there that can stop the march of the Empire.

Vote Empire this election! cheers

sorry owen but you`re wrong
SKAVEN is the way to go
jack of all trades with the option for wicked skaven magic and in the verminlord a rareity in a combat wizard
then there s all the wierd and wonderful skaven shooting
doomwheels ,weapon teams , all potential match winners (or losers) but that is the skaven way.

with 2 pages of lords and special charaters you can go magic haeavy or combat monsters
then you can always pick a hellpit abomination and just smash your opponants
and with chear core units you can fill your whole deployment zone with a glorious rat hoard
vote skaven

it depends on your style of gaming. if you prefer combat magic or shooting.

tomb kings and ogres are getting new books soon so you could wait for one of them

The top 10 armies at the moment are*:-

1 ) Deamons
2 ) Dark Elves
3 ) Lizardmen
4 ) Vampire Counts
5 ) Warriors of Chaos
6 ) Empire
7) Skaven
8 ) High Elves
9 ) Wood Elves
10 ) Dwarfs

* Information supplied by Rankings HQ

If you interested in Empire then I'm at the club on Thursday if you wanted to look at the army book and have a chat about them.

There is also this site which has lots of info about Sigmar's finest.

What kind of style do you enjoy playing?

Lots of shooty avoidance? Dark Elves and Wood Elves.
Gunlines? Dwarfs and Empire.
Run forward and clobber? Warriors of Chaos and Bretonnians.
Fancy magic? Lizards and Vampires.
Or do you just want to win? Daemons.

Vampires r good but ul wanT lots of ghouls which can be expensive to obtain. That combined with zombies being expensive aswell with the numbers u want. Just remember ul need enough for nearly 2 armies of core troops and bats to be competitive.

There is nothing wrong with collecting humans cheers . If you like the look of VCs then go for it, when do you think you'll start collecting and how long before you can get an army on the table? Andi, Derek and Martyn play VCs at the club so you could ask them for advice about collecting a VC army.

Here a tactia that Andi did for VC core troops

Should you go to the dark side then keep a look out for these guys

Cool that would be quick. It'll be good to have another fantasy player at the club.

ordered about 2250 points worth of vampires today...should arrive monday or tuesday, then its assembly and paint. Somehow my
months time scale was a bit rash Smile 10 grave guard models sucked the life out of me with all the fiddly bone bits...gggrrr
