okay i need to make a 500 point skirmish list. Gradually it will increase in size to 2250, my area's tournament size for WFB. I have no idea what to do with this list. At 500 points regiments of Renown are not even feasible and neither arespecial characters. Any suggestions?

pike men, in units of twenty, with a captain and a pay master. crossbowmen and duelists are good too.

using the warbands rules, i think the pay master can act as the general of your army. so you can save points if you play fewer characters

i will have to check into that...i had the idea to field knights. I wrote up my list, looked at the dozen figures that would be almost my entire army, and threw that list in the trash. so two units of pikes, commanders, and maybe some shooties and some skirmishers. I will have a list up tomorrow for review and comments.

I would take a unit of 20 pikemen, with a paymaster and a captain, and then a unit of 10 crossbowmen. The rest of the points should be used for duellists.

I would also put the captain with the duellists, with brace of pistols, that works darn well...

okay so here is my tentative list...

Mercenary Captain w/ brace of pistols, hand weapon, & light armour - 66
(goes with duellists)

Paymaster w/ hand weapon, morning star, shield, & light armour - 61
(goes w/ pikes)

19x Pikemen - 190

10x Crossbowmen - 80

10x Duellists w/ sword - 50

10x Duellists w/ swords - 50

total...497...
so how does this list look?
