Which starter box had empire and when?

I know it was in a couple. A friend of mine has some and he doesn't know what box set they came from.
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)

Back then they did not Name their starters.. it just was the starter box..

I think the first named starter was either Battle for Macragge or Battle for Skull Pass.. not sure at the moment which came first..
2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack
