TOR - Planned List Fun (and feedback?)


Hello Warhammer Empire!

Great to be back after (sharp intake of breath) a decade....

Excited to dust off some old minis and kitbash some new ones - especially a grandmaster on a demigryph!  Love the character options, as well :-)

Here's my proposed list.  I'm trying to think through my missile options... skirmisher archers to screen, pistoliers to bait and flee, etc. 

Any thoughts or feedback would be swell!

++ Characters [752 pts] ++
Grand Master [300 pts] - Run with 2 demigryphs
(Hand weapon, Full Plate Armour, Shield, Demigryph, Ogre Blade, Dawnstone)

I haven't played yet, but feels a bit top-heavy, with not a lot of infantry and a lot of characters.  I would probably try and fit another block in, losing a few knights and a cannon.

It looks solid to me. Can you find points to put a talisman of protection on the wizard?

I'm interested in knowing how the pistoleers perform for you.

What Dazgrim said. Although I can see a use for all those characters. You want to play a fast, hard-hitting force that lets you dictate where and what you fight. The character ensemble does support this. It's a bit of a glass hammer.

Do you plan to play on the suggested 44"x60" table size, or the traditional 48"x72"? With only four regiment-sized units, this force might be outmaneuvered, but less so on a smaller table.

It's a bit sad that Demigryph Knights seem to be an auto-include for the Empire now - as they were in the 8th ed. Strangely, I have nothing against two cannons being an auto-include.  :icon_lol:

What if one or even both of those Demigryph Knight units were 6+ Inner Circle knights with FC? Would the list idea & performance change much? Even more glass hammery?
