I have gone to the GW website and seen the new models and stats. I do play Empire and it does not motivate me in buying the army. On another note I play warmaster and they have made a Wood Elves army. Their is a note that is attached to WE. They are small by comparison to the other groups. Thus putting forth an army really does not reflect their military might.
It's probably because of the way certain parts of 8th ed affected the empire list, warmachines and engineers being a big part, but I also think the steam tank has a big effect on their decision to make a new book. That thing pretty much got an overhaul in 8th ed
I have a feeling that the reason that empire was remade was a finacial one. I think they would have been able to fix the problem with a FAQ. Then they would have been able to do other books that really require an update.
