Those Doppelsoldiers are lovely.
I don't care about the rules.

What's the minimum unit size?  :wink:

Sorry, I've completely lost faith in greatswords. (In game terms.)

There was one fellow on here who used a unit of 40, but I think that was last edition.  He swore by them, though everyone thought him mad. 

Those plastic vikings look awesome.  Seem reasonably priced, too.

I've had some success recently with a big unit of halberdiers, besides, I dont play to win, thats just a bonus if it happens and they look so pretty so I have them in my army.

Apologies if this is old news but I just discovered that Gripping Beast are about to release plastic Vikings. Not really usable in an Empire army unless it's heavily themed along the lines of an Ulric warband etc.

Those vikings have no horns on their helmets....and everyone knows that horns for chaos are like skulls for empire. This is known and therefore those models suck.










 :happy: on a serious note they look great.

I need to buy the dopplesoldners (however you spell that). On the other hand, I've had the pikemen I bought sat around since December mostly unpainted.

The most recent December. I want to get them finished, but I can't seem to motivate myself. I've been painting the Perry wars of the roses infantry instead, because they are much easier to do.

Doppelsöldner

doppel = twice Söldner =mercenary

because of their great skill and equipment the doppelsöldner wanted twice the money a regular mercenary earned and hence the name Doppelsöldner.

Thanks wissenlander!

Well, Uryen sounds like my kind of opponent. He don´t need to win to overwhelm you, you High elf pansie!  :closed-eyes:

You need an opponent who tries to lose, in order for you to score a win?

Or just one that plays for fun, and takes the wins when they come as a bonus, even more so when they are acheived with a "fluffy" army...

The point being, 40 strong greatsword unit, yes please

I believe me and Uryen would be a rather evenly matched pair of opponents.  :icon_mrgreen:

those hussars and the dwarfs underneath have made me ignore everything anyone else has said this thread - which should have been reason to laugh and reply on it's own.

WOW...i want.
The greatest form of control which can go on forever until it is exposed is a tyranny you can't see, touch and taste (unlike totalitarian Govts). When you sit in a prison cell but can't see the bars, because people don't rebel against not being free when they think they're are.

Those are nice actually!

The first one has a bit of a giant shoulder pad though. Like Thatcher, or a Space Marine.
