Well at least it's not filled with cannons and black powder. I'd play vs it.

Actually it looks quite balanced (for a gunline...) and yes, I'd play it as well. I think the real winner of this list are the longbeard rangers, IF you can put them in a good position to charge and/or block charges. They are rock hard, and I usually built my 1000 pts army around an 18-strong block. Actually, consider lowering their number and give them throwing axes, it has always paid out for me.

Cheers, and good luck! :)

yeah i could try that, i wasnt really sure that the axes would be worth it but i suppose it will make them much more flexible, also i can put their veteran back in to give them more punch on the charge
