Which faction should I do a Guide for next?!?! ('like' to vote below)
They are a bit weak I found them lacking in most cases until I brought up the hand gunners and let loose at the cost of a few friendly models.
That battle in the end helps alloy
Rule number 1:
Don’t use them
Flaggellants as a bait unit is a great tactic in campaign, because the AI is dumb enough to take it.
Hammer and anvil them until the trolls come home.
Then hammer and anvil the trolls until they go away again and do some more hammer and anvil
The only MAJOR thing I have against this game is that you can't actually send 10000 Flagellants to attack your enemy as Franz in the campaign.
I always thought Flaggents were useless. But what you did was genius. 😊👏
So well done, thank you. Great visuals to match your commentary!!!!!
So confused ou have so many more units than i do in my roster, is there like a DLC or something?
Damn, man!! Thanks!)))

The irritating thing about the Emp is that their infantry units aren't really capable of holding a static line; especially the low tier. This makes hammer and anvil tactics difficult to pull off, in my experience.
The cav often gets bogged down in duels with enemy cav, and by the time they win, the infantry are either routing, or on the verge of it.
How do you beat vampire coast with this faction? Their ranged game is so opressive. =(
Im a clown bag………….
Are the demigryh knights shock or melee cavalry?
Why is Volkmar never invited to parties, because of his uncontrollable flagellants.
imagine a dark souls universe of total war
"I will see you all at Sigmar's house!"-Flagellant
Your guides are very good! Enjoy watching them. Just got the game and enjoying my vampire campaign.
Once I get an army made of tanks I go full Phil Swift on the enemy. Especially the undead.
''THAT'S A LOTTA DAMAGE!!''
This video is well done my man congrats.
The is i wanna point out tho is astheticly empire feels so good. You feel like you are a human trying to hold off monsters orcs vampires giant with tactics and gumpowder. Every battle i play as empire feels uplifting even when i lose. Your take on last battle was amazing however i was already blown away by those cannons firing at giants and demons and shit.
wonder if in the future the empire can get more unitsImperial Ogres: Monstrous Infantry recruit-able only from OstlandHalflings: Stealthy archers with stalk and vanguard deployment but have low health and very poor melee stats recruitable only from The MootWhite Wolves: A high strength Armour piercing melee cavalry armed with two handed warhammers
That was a fantastic example battle for the artillery segment.
The empire: *Exists Everyone: Its free real estate
have you ever considered redoing your earlier videos like this one into the ones for the TWW2 factions? it's just that in your green skin and chaos video it got very distracting when the illustration of the unit doesn't move with your explaination
That last fight was awesome
I have been watching your videos regarding on what and what not to do on Warhammer as the Empire. I don't have the DLC, but I did managed to score seven victories out of 18 battles. Although I did model the formations from my previous experience in historical titles as I used the Swedish pike and shot formation in all the battles.
1 general, 10 tanks, 2 jade wizard, 4 hand gunners, 3 hellstorm rockets, you are good to go.
You say softening weird
thank you, i needed this. it showed me just how much i didnt know and how much i was doing wrong
You're using the units well, no doubt, but pretty much every other faction has better infantry than the humans, i mean Chaos, Norsca, Orcs, Dwarfs, Vampires, they all got units that slaughter regular spearmen and swordsmen in a siege for example and i think thats the big minus of the empire(/Bretonia)
Did you get the permission of Elector Counts for this video ?
"This action does not have my consent" Karl Franz on the actions of Karl franz
Artillery, not Dwarves, Artillery…..wat?
You could have said the Halls of Sigmar or something, but noooo, come on guys, let’s all go over to Sigmar’s house, his mom lets him watch R rated movies
they also have the most magic variety
how accurate is this guide still?
Til Sigmar's House!
Great video. Love the example using the flagellants.
I don't have flagilants so is that dlc?
8:04 – "Or you could plunk him on a horse and getting him to go and pimp-slap some wizards" – Best line in this video. 😉
I never knew that magic lores were effective against certain races. Like beast lore being more effective against Chaos. That was really surprising.
Why i haven’t all units??? Wtf?! There no dlc right??
Awesome Videos Man, earned a Sub☺
I had the Lumiarch in the campaign, Archaon as barreling towards my line, I had missed him, I thought I was screwed, then a big golden blast hits him (my Luminarch was fire at will) it took 3/4 of his health in one shot, Franz flew in and finished him, it was so funny and I wish I had saved the replay.
We need Warhammer 40,000 Total War.
I feel bad for the flagellants, that was mean 🙁
''For the Empire!! TO SIGMAR'S HOUSE!!!''

Can someone help, please???
From the Lords & Heroes window it says I have THREE lords not leading an army and available to recruit, however they do not appear in the Recruit Lord section at all, no matter what city I attempt to recruit them from. Very frustrating!
whats missing was some advice on positioning the gunners with their direct arc of shooting.. I guess if you cant sit them on a small hill then you have to flank with them.
"Sof-ten up those enemy troops" Soffen, sof-ten
All hail SIGMAR
Btw all the Empire units have generally Anti-Large buffs
So the imperial gaurd is the flatulence gaurd
Hello/ guid would need to update next week)))
The Empire's army really reminds me of Attack On Titan. They'd be great for defending the walls!

also now with all of the dlc's and Warhammer 2 now in affect will there be a update for these vids?
this need an update for warhammer 2
No no no you see the infantry needs to be explained as below average, not average. When my swordsmen can barley hold off naked orcs….you know their is a problem. Hell my Greatswords get massacred when I use them against monsters, or orc boyz
Damn. This really makes me miss tabletop warhammer.
Please update after rework!!
How to be good with empire? GUNS lots of GUNS
How do I get the empire
2:50 Goddamnit the infantry animations are terrible. Sure I get that monsters would have over the top animations but seeing realistically portrayed human infantry flail around like that sucks. I'm not asking for sync kills but I wish they would atleast block and stagger responsively to getting hit and such.
How about an updated Empire video with all the new DLC and updates?
i would love if there was an updated version of this with the new units
I love the empire this prefect tactic to sit on the hill when luminarch and hellblasters destroying enemies when halbearders and great swords are holding the line
Thank you kind sir
Whats the empires best answer against necrofex colossus and beastmen cygor?
I always wondered how the humans are supposed to hold up with all the other factions in Warhammer. I mean every ordinary ork is like a 7 foot bodybuilder, what are ordinary dudes supposed to do against that?
Great video mate, really helped me understand the Mighty Empire!
I know you might not read this comment since video is old but what hot keys do you use and did you change any? I’m thinking of making my space bar the pause or slow down button, P just doesn’t make much since but your videos have really helped me a lot on this game and I’ve finally been able to enjoy a total war game since medieval 2 total war
"Off to sigmars house lads, death awaits"
Several you want to go to sigma's house? His mom is out of town🤣🤣
Thank youuuuuuu man 😉
Ow man. I wasted my youth…….
I find that the Empire is a decent faction at the start, but they kind of suck when Chaos shows up. If you work on confederating with all the imperial factions, Archaon will probably make you regret it.
Me: No cavalry No artillery Chaos: knock knockMe: Sweats profusely
I believe that skirmisher cavalry is vastly underrated in ANY total war game, i feel like they should be give more attention that what it’s being given now. The number one problem i see people do with skirmisher cavalry is use it mainly as a pseudo missile unit, now i understand why they would do that, even i use to do that, but i now see the purpose of skirmisher cav, IT’S TO SKIRMISH. With skirmisher cav, you can send them to harrass the enemy and wittle down their numbers so that your infantry will have a better time. ALSO, skirmisher cavalry is great when you combine with shock cav or melee cav (mostly melee cav) cause once your skirmishers have run out of ammo or is in danger of being caught in melee by the enemy cav or infantry, you can send in your melee cav to busy themselves with the enemy units, and the reason why i say melee cav instead of shock cav is cause that you can send one unit of melee cav to distract a unit or two of infantry so that your infantry will habe less infantry to handle, making their job easier, and melee cav can stay alive in combat for long periods of time. So by the time they rout or get destroyed, YOUR infantry will destroy THEIR infantry and you can now focus on taking down the rest of their army. So Skirmisher cav and melee cav can make a great combo.
one good alternative to replace the slow and need protection artillery (other than the expensive steam tank) is the grenade launcher cav, and the campaign exclusive ones have armor piercing too, decent but not cheap
Great video, thank you
That's why I love the Empire and am an Empire main. Masters of none but Experts at all. I've been fighting along side ol' Franz since TW:W1 and I still learn a thing or 2 and you sir Zerkovich have helped a lot.
My question is: Would a Pike and Shotte style Empire army be useful?
2:34, did you just pronounce the "T" in soften?!?! Jk good vids man
"SUMMON THE ELECTOR COUNTS" – Me anytime i pick the Empire
Would be cool to see an update with the new Empire nerfs and new units.
Sounds like music from WoW, in the background. Blackrock Mountain or something.
Thanks a lot. Very informative. I wish i had this when i started to play warhammer 2.
You should update this guide list for 2020
