Krieghammer Factions: The Empire

I want to try out some quick FKR Skirmish battles (http://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2021/03/methods-for-fkr-skirmish-game.html), so I decided to convert some of the warhammer factions to be used in an FKR type game. I'm calling it Krieghammer! I've listed a cost to make it easier for people to put together a comparable warband to fight others with. 

(I've also converted Beastmen: https://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2021/04/krieghammer-factions-beastmen.html )
