Empire units could use a stat makeover

Similarly to how Vampire Counts units got one with the Immortal Empires patch, some Empire units could use some stat touch ups to varying degrees. This is particularly the case for some of the more elite troops like Steam Tanks and Luminarks. They were just completely overtaken by 6 years of power creep and weren't properly adjusted to deal with it. The fact that the WH2 Empire DLC didn't really add any stand out units adds to this problem. This issue is also visible with some other game one races' units like the Orc Boar Boyz. Hopefully CA can go back and give some love to these units, like giving the Steam Tank some Physical Resist and higher Missile Damage etc...

    Yes, a few empire units are definitely left behind.

    Steam tanks are still poor, archers, flagellants, ROR huntsmen and archers, demigryphs are now not used, Captains, witch hunters, empire generals, steam tanks, luminarks, mortar wagons greats word stats are still wrong.

    Many units are missing traits and abilities that more recent refreshes and introductions have.

    Flagellants are particularly underwhelming and lack character
