  1. It should read Rory "I really hate all the new toys GW has produced, hate demigryphys, love infantry, hate internet lists, why did they make Empire infantry 2 points more expensive" Finnemore.

    I'm not holding on to any anger or anything..... Just refuse to take a Demigryph list (the only truly tournament competitive list) so boring....Empire (in my opinion) has to be the second most boring list after dwarfs.

    Ahhhh that feels better.... ahem....

    1. In the feels man. I love my infantry too...my poor 120ish halberds are sitting on the shelf gathering dust

      Though I do genuinely enjoy using Demigryphs. Though I think it is more of a "and take THAT!" revenge feeling from years of big scary stuff stomping on my halberds.

    2. Mate it sucks....it would be nice if infantry were a viable choice. I also have plenty of unloved state troops languishing in boxes (thousands and thousands of points worth!). Why can't GW playtest all the new books simultaneously and release them all at once? It actually wouldn't cost that much....sigh...I love Empire, but I just have to let them go, I just cant do it anymore. It's like being in an abusive relationship.

      PS: People should really stop whinging about cannons...I mean honestly Joel, if you manage to get a cannon shot off on my lord I'm not going to hold it against you, I mean really once he reaches your lines there's not a lot that the power of men can do to stop him!

    4. I don't have any cavalry.

    5. I thought the wisdom of the interweb said that 8th edition was for infantry to now be the power on the battlefield and that cavalry was nerfed.

    6. No Sam....you don't have any hope!

    7. Ok, firstly: one of the best Empire players in the UK ATM prefers halberdiers to Knight bus.

      Secondly: less "Waaaa, my army isn't perfect", more "Bitch, I'm gonna smash you on Saturday!"

      Mmkay, silly bears?

    8. I don't give a crap what they do in the UK... I'd rather take Warhammer lessons from the Polish, they seem pretty good - may not be able to understand a word they're saying but good nonetheless...
      Empire, not my army anymore....
      Yep I'm going to smash on Saturday....Sunday may be a different story though....

    9. Note to Self: Remember to take lots of extra Clanrat models in case Sam won't let me use his Orcs as "newly acquired clanrats".

  2. James is in my head... I've actually been thinking that after I saw some of the lists...

    1. Tom is in foetal ball rocking to and fro at prospect of facing High Elves - Yeah Right!

      Delete
    2. Tom's List doesn't scare me as much as others. It's a reasonable match up for me, He should be cowering :)

      Delete
    3. Whats the matter Pete? Don't want to play me 2nd round after Tom has been returned to the Chaos Wastes and your numbers have been somehow bolstered by hybrid rat-orcs ? ( No offence Sam)

      Delete
    4. I would love to play you Peter. You're a nice chap and just as good as anyone to crush under the wheels of the juggernaut that is Team Skaven (though Locky knows he is from a largely forgotten and not that fondly remembered clan).

    5. High Elves are your Achilles heel Mr Skaven and you know it. I'll put a beer down on the PaW of justice dealing to the Daemon incursion. Nothing untoward to ya Tom but Elvesez trump Daemonseezz, plus the HE list is suppose to be written off this ed of the Masters. Back the underdog and all that.

    6. I'll happily wage a beer with you on Spawn of Pete vs. Spawn of Neil

      Delete
    7. Beers are good, you're on Pete. Rem to sharpen those sticks for daemon eyes. I'll have to buy a brewery to support this TAB habit :)

  3. Am I the only one confused why you all keep calling the fucking chocobos "demigryphs"?

    1. With you on that Charlie....never understood why - and I've played Empire predominantly....

      Delete
    2. I call them "victory points" Charlie.....just another faceless entry on their army roster for my Skaven to harvest.

  4. Mr Williamson I'll buy you a beer next time your in Auckland if you win a game with that HE list!

    2. Gas_M has made a bet with me too on the High Elf list. I like me beers. Promise I won't drink when I next play you Neil ;)

  5. Happy to pay but I can't see it! The list just doesn't do enough of anything to survive in the field - "should be" unless they do something stupid auto lose v skaven, daemons, brets, orcs and vamps for a start. Free points everywhere in the list and just don't get 2x27 spearman with High magic.. maybe he can explain it to me when I maybe buy him a beer! Ha ha
