Negs: Just keep in mind flagellants are really, really easy to beat off now(T3, frenzy, and they kill themselves also), which tends to suggest they're better for support(i.e. 12-14 strong) than as a mainstay unit.

Additionally, 20 strong units of swordsmen probably won't get outnumber or that third rank, as it takes one(two with char) corpse to drop them.

With 7th rules, it helps to mount up characters that join infantry units, as it gives them an attack and doesn't open them to arb. targeting. Can drop meteoric then as well!

Helblaster is much more situational now as to who its useful against.

5 Xbows? eh?

Pos:Hatred on a knights unit is rather slick.

Good chance of gettings things off magically without using lots of wizards.

Good LD and magic

3 mainstay units at 2000(which is what you want).

i really like the use of detachments, they make alot of sence and can win you that vital game-winning combat
