I would try to get a Luthor Huss model (mounte warrior priest basicaly) and 1 more wizzard if you can (the onld blisters had bot a mounted and unmounted Wizard might be worth looking at). 20 greatswords with command should be another thing to look at.

I'd say you've got more than enough to be getting on with. Paint it before you start getting even more models. Once you get a massive backlog of state infantry who are all essentially painted the same way, its very depressing work getting through them, take it from one who's suffering at the moment! :p

As said, you are already having 190+ models with plenty of variety - those should make for a pretty decent and balanced 2000 point army. Get it assembled and a couple of games under your belt before going looking for any new purchases.

That said, once you get everything done I would recommend taking a look at the Empire militia boxed set, to bring some more variety (like free company or archers/huntsmen) - that box is pretty good value for money, and you get lots of different arms on it.

More then enough... maybe a character on a Griffon or something... just to beast him up for larger games.

You might want militia to use for cheaper detachments. You might also want 4 more knights if you want to deploy in units of 12.

I agree with the Huss comment, and probably with the wizard (get the new plastic wizard sprue, for 2 wizards, as all the previous models look dated, and the ltd ed wizard is the worst LE model in a long time). Greatswords I'm less sure about.

Yeah I dont like the LE Wizard at all. I'm going to sell or tade the LE Wizard as it seems someone always wants the limited figures and also get what I can for the Metal Flgarents and buy the new Reinforcment box thats coming out with the Plastic Wizards, Flagereants, etc.
