Rumors indicate a new Empire book is on the horizon.
This sounds like a good choice. Bretonnia suffers from this edition from the steadfast rule and the new bsb rules as they can no longer break units on the charge and their punch greatly reduces after the initial charge.
Hope that helps.

The Empire is a much more flexible army and has a much wider variety of units to work from. Brets are very limited by comparison.

Currently, yes... but I imagine they'd be put in line with the new format of books with some big beast, monstrous cav, lowered point cost, etc..

That is, of course, if GW ever releases another book for them. It's only been 9 years or so, right?

Between those two choices, I would pick up an Empire Army. They have lots of different units, and have numerous builds to fit any play style. They have really cool war-machines/ unique units like Steam tanks, decent Cavalry units, as well as some nice foot sloggin units like Great swords, and Halbardiers. The empire has decent shooting units like pistoliers too.

Most of the Empire sculpts are awesome. Painted Flagellants on the battlefield look nice. Not to mention the Empire has conscripts from other "kingdoms" making it easy to have themed armies of a province.

I really like the history/Lore of the Empire (except the part about helping the ugly Dwarf race beat down Greenskins). :p

Rumors have been pointing to the Empire getting the next Army Book. Maybe as early as June (likely 3 or 4 quarter knowing GW). Along with those rumors are new or "reintroduced" units from older Army books like Halfling units and ogre conscripts.

Anyways, I don't think you could go wrong choosing an Empire. Right now the empire seems to works decent with the current Army book although there's always room for a new book/models/items. Good Luck!

Need more state troops as well... Halberdiers should be bricks of 30-50 each.
