HotT Empire Army List

Classic Empire from 3rd edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles

It comes as no surprise that GW have driven many people away from their product.  As a result I have been repurposing my figures to create lots of entertaining HotT armies.  You’ll find elsewhere pictures of my Empire fighting Undead.  Below is my own interpretation.

Mounted Elements

Temple Ritterbruden – Templars of Sigmar, Ulric and Myrmidia.

Hohensknechtes – Secular order of knights; Imperial Guard, High-Helms, Knights Panther and Gryphon Legion.

Statdtsknechtes – Provincial knights of feudal nobles and their retainers – Elector States and Raubritter (robber knights)

Kriegsritter – Mounted militia from the Electoral Provinces.

Foot Elements

Reiksgard – Imperial Guard who protect the Emperor.

Armbrustschutzen – Crossbowmen.

Helblitzen – Good quality troops armed with halberds.

Hakbutschutzen – Troops armed with nmzzle-loading arqubuses.

Ersatzsolder – Mustered troops from the urban population.  Armed with weapons such as halberd, spears, or pikes.  Lightly armoured, shield and hand weapon generally issued.

Landesturm – Rural peasantry.

Bergjaeger – Scouts, trackers and hunters.

Forstjaeger – Skirmishers.

Fleglers – Religious fanatics

Reiks Kanone Batterien – Cannon.


Mandatory elements are 1 x Shooters (Armbrustschutzen) and 1 x Blade (Helblitzen).  The list allows plenty of flexibility to encompass whatever you may have.  This has been developed with the 24AP as standard.
