Huh, I haven't been paying nearly as much attention as I should have been. The Empire are (or have been) just re-released for Fantasy! Given that my Dark Elves seem to feel a little out of touch with the current game, it's exciting to think that the Empire may get some new toys to throw down with.
I'll have to swing by, pick it up, and give it a shot. Hear that Frans? I'll be up for another Fantasy game before ya know it!
Also: Halflings in the Empire army!! About time they've made a return.
