Warbands force for a tournament comming in 2 weeks.

Several variants I am thinking about.

List #1. Infantry detachment style with reasonable amount of shooting

Captain with Armour of Meteoric Iron and Greatsword : 84 points

18 Halberdiers + Standard Bearer: 116 points
5 Handgunner detachment: 40 points
7 Swordsmen detachment: 49 points

18 Spearmen + Standard Bearer: 116 points
5 Handgunner detachment: 40 points
7 Swordsmen detachment: 49 points

Total: 498 points

List #2. Shooting backed by a reasonably large infantry block with detachments.

Captain with fullplate and shield on an barded warhose: 74 points

18 Spearmen + Standard Bearer: 116 points
8 Swordsmen detachment: 56 points
5 handgunner detachment: 40 points

10 handgunners + Marksman upgrade + repeater handgun: 100 points

5 pistoliers + Marksman upgrade + repeater pistol: 112

Total: 498 points.

Other possibilities include dropping the Pistoliers for knights or dropping the handgunners for a cannon to blow up chariots and monsters.

Thoughts?

Why not the hellblaster?

I don't have one :(

And with the new rules for helblasters in the next book, I don't think I will invest in one.
