Last post by Muppet in Re: Knights with great w on November 17, , PM. The 8th edition armybook for The Empire is copyrighted It contains rules necessary for fielding an army of The Empire in the 8th Edition of Warhammer.

A combination of the main rules and his own rules in 7th edition meant that he was never worth taking, which was a shame because I used him all the time in 6th edition. However, it seems that once again he is worth taking.

At points he is quite a bargain. Like all warrior priests his primary function is too augment your troops. With the right amount of luck and good timing he can crush even the mightiest of enemy characters. He also comes with an additional Battle Prayer: Unbending Righteousness. It makes Luthor Huss and his unit Stubborn until the start of the next friendly magic phase. Markus Wulfhart- A brand new and very cool named character, Markus is a monster hunter.

At points he is a bargain. If that wasn't enough his Monster Hunter rule lets him re-roll failed hits against all monsters and if aiming against a ridden monster the shot isn't randomised; it will always hit the monster. Markus was tasked by the Emperor to find other individuals with his passion for monster hunting and gather them into a single war band. That is all of the named characters covered and so now I will take a look at ordinary characters.

The former being a Lord Choice and the latter a Hero Choice. They come with the same stat line they have always had and so are decent enough in combat but of course aren't really a match for some other armies characters.

However, new to this edition they get a rule called Hold the Line! The unit they are with and its detachments take break tests on 3D6 and use the two lowest dice. This rule finally makes them worth taking, being only humans they will never really be the match of a Chaos Lord or Black Orc Warboss but at least now they have a rule to reflect their immense command skills.

The General is only 95 points and has access to a large amount of equipment as well as access to the Imperial Griffon and Imperial Pegasus. The Captain is 60 points with access to a decent amount of equipment and an Imperial Pegasus. A Captain can also be the Battle Standard Bearer. Battle Wizards- The same as they have always been Battle Wizards and Battle Wizard Lords are strong spell casters with access to any of the eight lores of magic. The Wizard Lord is of course a Lord Choice and is points.

He can be made a Level 4 Wizard and has access to an Imperial Pegasus. However, he gets additional mounts depending upon the lore chosen. If he picks the Lore of Heavens he may be mounted on the Celestial Hurricanum. If he picks the Lore of Light he may be mounted on the Luminark of Hysh. If he picks the Lore of Beasts he may be mounted on an Imperial Griffon. Like all Empire character except the Witch Hunter he has access to a warhorse. Master Engineers- Eccentric and avoided by most sane people Engineers will take to the battlefield to try out their many inventions.

At only 65 points this Hero Choice character is worth taking and placed with your artillery. The Master Ballistics Rule now means he can lend his Ballistic Skill and grant a re-roll to an artillery dice as long as he is within 3" of a war machine. He no longer has to join it. As long as he is within 3" of a war machine the 'Stand Back Sir! They have access to a number of deadly weapons: grenade launching blunderbuss, Hochland long rifle, pigeon bombs, repeater handgun and a repeater pistol.

These weapons haven't changed any and the pigeon bombs are still very shit. The Mechanical Steed is back. I don't have my old book with me to compare it with but it is still very good and should be taken over the warhorse.

They have been a great addition to the army since 6th edition and 7th edition for the Arch Lectors. However, they have become slightly worse in close combat as time went on.

Their main focus is to augment your soldiers and they do a damn good job of it. They can channel power and dispel dice like wizards and have access to three Battle Prayers, which are bound spells and affect detachments as well as regimental units. They are as follows: Hammer of Sigmar: The Warrior Priest and his unit may re-roll failed wounds until the start of the next friendly magic phase.

Soulfire: The Warrior Priest and his unit gain the Flaming Attacks special rule until the start of the next friendly magic phase. In addition, when cast all enemy models in base contact with the Warrior Priest suffer a Strength 4 hit. Undead, Nehekharan Undead and models with the Daemonic special rule suffer a Strength 5 hit instead, with no armour saves allowed.

These prayers seem a lot more straight forward now and although healing hand is gone Lore of Life does it better anyway. I am not a fan of Soulfire. It definitely got nerfed. Flaming Attacks are only useful against a handful of enemies and I preferred when it did a D6 hits against any enemy unit in base contact with the Warrior Priest. Righteous Fury is still there, giving him and the unit he is with hatred.

It still doesn't affect other characters. The Warrior Priest is now only 65 points; which is thirty points cheaper than before. They come with light armour as standard now which is good and they can still take heavy armour. As always they have access to a warhorse. The Arch Lector which is a Lord Choice is points. He is also cheaper than before and like the Hero version has only 2 Attacks.

His Leadership and Wounds are one higher. He has access to the same equipment as the Warrior Priest but in addition can be mounted on the War Altar.

The Golden Griffon mounted on it also contains the Banishment spell from the Lore of Light and it can be cast as a bound spell power level 4. However, there is no points option any where for the horn. It calls it an upgrade so that would imply it needs to be bought. Hopefully this will be errated soon.

Nonetheless, this mighty chariot is a must for any true warrior of Sigmar. Witch Hunters- Grim and terrifying they have been a big part of the fluff since 4th edition and have been one of my favourite elements of the Warhammer World.

It is easy to hate them for their ruthlessness and fanaticism but in a world where the loss of your soul or horrible mutation are very real they are necessary defenders of mankind.

This is the first time they have been included in an Empire Army book and it's about damn time!

Despite the long wait they haven't disappointed. They have the stat line of a Warrior Priest so aren't amazing in combat but their special rules make them very deadly. They come with Magic Resistance 2 , so they come protected against foul sorceries. They have three other special rules: Accusation: After deployment, but before the first turn begins, select a single model in your opponents army to accuse of heresy.

This is a Witch Hunters primary quarry. The Witch Hunter may re-roll all failed To Hit rolls against his primary quarry. Every hit he inflicts on that model also have the Killing Blow special rule, even if they were from a shooting attack.

Finally the Witch Hunter may also choose to shoot at the primary quarry as if he had the Sniper special rule. Grim Resolve: Witch Hunters automatically pass any Leadership tests caused by Fear that they are required to take.

Note that they will be unaffected even if the unit they are in fails such a test. In addition, Witch Hunters, and any unit they are in treat Terror-causing creatures as causing Fear instead just as if they themselves caused Fear ; they do not automatically pass this Leadership test. At 50 points they are cheap as chips, take a few of them and nominate the same target and it won't be long before it falls under the blades and bullets of these grim defenders of the Empire.

They only have access to a brace of pistols and a great weapon.

They come with light armour, pistol and hand weapon as standard. As all heroes they get access to 50 points of Magic Items. That is all of the characters covered but it isn't the end of Part 1 of my blog just yet. I will cover character mounts and magic items as these are important to any Empire character. In addition to being one of the wonders of the Old World, it has a practical function, stabling some of the Emperors more dangerous and bizarre mounts.

The Imperial Dragon: Raised from an egg taken from the Black Mountains only the Emperor can ride this beast as only he has the strength of will to dominate its cold, aloof mind. It has a standard profile for a dragon so it is a force to be reckoned with. They never say what colour it is and in the new fluff it mentions that the Black Mountains are home to many frost dragons which would suggest it is a white dragon.

However, it has a flaming breath attack which would suggest a red dragon. At the end of the day it doesn't matter which colour you use but some people like to stick rigidly to the fluff. Imperial Griffons: Found not just in the Imperial Zoo but in the care of nobles all over the Empire these beasts have been bred to be bigger, more powerful and more loyal than their wild kin. Many people have commented on the size of the new model and this is why. It is also reflected in their characteristics as these Griffons are Strength 6.

They have the option of two upgrades. Bloodroar: Enemy units roll an extra D6 when taking Fear or Terror tests caused by the beast and they discard the lowest.

This has sparked a lot of debate as two heads is a mutation. It has always said that Griffons were born from the power of Chaos and although noble creatures they have been touched by Magic. Some noted below are additions to specific army lists and are taken following the normal rules for their unit type. Starting with the 4th edition rules, individual Army books were published for various races and realms of the Warhammer world that had coinciding miniatures armies to play the Warhammer Fantasy Battles tabletop game.

All army books were initially replaced by a get-by list in Ravening Hordes, distributed for free. It was the first edition to feature individual army books.

However, one thing you should be aware of is that the knights in the Battalion do not come with a Knights of the White Wolf sprue Yes they do but, unless you're running a fluffy Middenheim army, why are you taking Knights of The White Wolf anyway? Ring of Volans: 30 points. March 09, , Most of the time all you can do is deny them kills and combat resolution so kitting your heroes to survive the stupid numbers of attacks likely to be inflicted on him is a good direction to take as normal troops would probably just get minced.

Detachments cause Panic now. It still doesn't affect other characters. Moreover, the FAQ has ruled that detachments use the ranks of the parent unit for determining Steadfast, even if it isn't in combat.

Core Units[ edit ] State Troops: These guys will probably end up being the backbone of your army, and are fully integrated into the Detachments system.

His points cost went down, but so did a basic Warrior Priest, and by the same amount.
