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.
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.
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.
