The lists are in!

Well the lists have been made public, and I'll be facing off agianst an Empire army, played by Joel (his surname evades me...) I've played him once before at Vermtide last December agianst his high elves and managed a 10-10 tie with him (In fact, I won my 15pts, so in my mind, A WIN none the less!) :P

Now I have never played Empire before, so I'm going to pretty much ask him to explain the book for me before our game :(. Now from what I've herd, Empire can be a very tough army to beat in the right hands, so I'm going to have to be on me toes for more a less the whole game. And what I'm taking from the list is that its going to be an artillery war, so I pray I get the first turn or if he does, I get lucky and he misfires... And if nothing else works, I've got a plan X... which is... I'm Catholic, so surely god is on my side! lol.

So best of luck to Joel.


  1. Heh, heh. Good on ya Mate.

    You will be surprised to know that Joel is also a Christian and a very competent Empire + WE + HE general.

    He is also a really great opponent and friend, so even if you lose to him, it will definitely be good game to help you learn more about the hooby and how to be a more seasoned dwarf general.

    In terms of your army versus his, make sure you choose your targets carefully. Take note of where his wizards are and the Pope mobile (Arch Lector on War Altar). I would say that looking at the list, the first thing you will need to do is take out his artillery as soon as possible with our own cannons and stuff, that way the only thing you will need to worry about is Magic and combat.

    With the Anvil of Doom, you will need to balance the options between stopping the Pegasus from flying around, to slowing down the outriders. With Ancient power, I would suggest using it only when things are really dire.

    All the best this weekend Simon,

    Adam Richards (also a Christian Wargamer)

    1. Thanks for the advise Adam :D. Much appreciated. Will you be attending Runefang?

  2. All good, nah, I have got other stuff on i.e. study. Have a good weekend all the same though, and give Joel and the Williamsons' my Regards.
