Sorry, but I need to make another post.

I asked a few days ago for some suggestions as to what I should play. I thought I had it all figured out, but the more I thought about it, the more I confused myself.

So I've narrowed down my two choices for armies to, obviously, The Empire and Warriors of Chaos. I have a few questions that will help me pick.

1. Is the Empire functional if designed for a full close-combat army?

2. How badly does the lack of shooting actually hurt the Warriors of Chaos?

3. Exactly how potent is the detachment system?

4. How strong is the Empire when it's forces are truly balanced (Shooting, Close Combat, Calvary, etc.)?

5. Are the Warriors of Chaos actually worth the points they cost, or could they be outmatched by something with a lower point cost?

Thanks a ton for anyone who takes the time to answer all this... :)
1. yes[see detachments]
2. not too much, but you need to make up for it with magic.
3. AWESOME. when used properly the detachment system is awesome. especially with the new 8th rules. best way of taking out enemy rank bonuses. i reckomend units of 30[5 wide,6 deep] swordsmen with detachments of 15 halbierdiers
4. empire is a very versatile army, and can be potnet in the right hands. I think it is definately an army that wins through tactics and skill. you need to know what you should be firing the cannons at, and when to flee etc
5. chaos warriors are the most powerful core unit in fantasy.
