I find the Einar Imperium to be maximally effective against Drake, with his 3 defense they can chew through him, he may only last one turn.

As far as the Deathwalker, I mean stay away from squads of 4 to minimize your chances of whiffing, or stay away from squads with 3 attack. Take out heroes instead. When I draft Deathwalkers I usually take Samurai as well to give him a front line. I've had good experiences with them, especially the 8000.

At any rate, Kiova does have 1 more attack and stealth flying, so she's definately worth it, but raelin isn't bad either.

I think the biggest reason people pick Kiova is that you can't really feel bad if you fail to defend on two separate rolls. If you get a second chance and still miss, it starts to feel like fate rather than bad luck. Basically a security blanket for your feelings.

statistics matisitics...these guys blow for 140.

They should have come with a bullseye painted on thier bare chests, becasue each is 46.666666 points of please shoot me.

Kiova, Raelin, Marcus....bah! too much support to make them effective on a consistent basis.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

But then you have to use three order markers on two figures and while your moving the other your leaving the other unit(s) out in the open to be slaughtered.

MrBarkypants Woo who?
Coolest sculps period. Awful unit. I have yet to see any of THE Emperium kill even one figure. I have tried them 3 times in 500 pt armies and have yet to get close enough for more than 1 attack. Joah tried to sneak one up on the castle top to capture the flag. Not one got even close.

I'm Mr. Barkypants, and I'm a mix of ol schoo and new schoo....

Try them agaisnt a zombie army, you'll see how awesome they can be. They will struggle against ranged armies, unless there is a lot of cover for you to hide behind or you can tie up the ranged units well. Try the imperium with some deathreavers and see how the army does

Or perhaps you jsut have abissmal luck

Imperium x2 - 280
Raelin - 80
Kiova - 90
Marro Warriors - 50

Total = 500

This is the only 500 pt army I could come up with in which the Imperium might survive long enough to hurt something. Even still, it's a very slow moving army with hardly any range and you find yourself relying on defense dice - which any Deathwalker player knows doesn't work.

How about:

Imperium x2
Deathreavers x3
KMA

Send in KMA do take down most or all ranged units your opponent has. Once they die, send in all three squads of Reavers to tie up ALL of your opponents units(most likely, with 12 rats you'll tie up practically all units) then send in the Imperium killing anything thats tied down while your opponent has to fight their way through the rats. Sounds fun, but I don't know if it'll be affective.

yeah, just use Kiova, Raelin, Marcus, three sets of rats, and the Krav Maga, play against a non range zombie army, then they work great.
