I've browsed this forum and it seems this topic hasn't been mentioned yet. So here it goes.
Are there any datas concerning the population of the factions of warhammer, or the number of men raised for war? There are some posts estimating Ulthuan's population in Ulthuan Net, but I can't figure out the ground for such caculation.
The latter(manpower) came to my mind when I read the Empire section in the BRB, right after the magic section. Along with the explanation of the empire is a fanciful illistration depicting the armies of the empire. What really stunned me was the sheer size of the war host, covering the entire slope of a mountain with soldiers, LITERALLY.
The only bits of information about the army strength I could gain access to was from HE army book. There are only two such cases: the phoenix guards are always 10,000 strong, and there was an incident where 200 norsemen charged 10,000 lothern sea guards.
So......any advice on this one?
