Free Company

Does anybody else think that free company should be made into skirmishers?

Theyre a rabble of peasants that dont tend to be well disciplined or organised.

We could do with a duelist-type skimisher unit

Free companies are a collection of adventures, sellswords, mercenaries, bandits, and other scoundrels. They are not a torch-wielding mob of peasants. Unless, of course, you did some interesting conversion work.

Yes.  See duellists here - http://www.warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=29816.0 [\threadpimp]

Aren't they kinda whatever you want them to be?

I think that's a pretty good idea, and I think it'd be useful for a skirmish screen with a good edge of two attacks in combat as well, but I know that there are some people who like them in big units as well, and they might be as good as independent units then

plus we do already have archers for skirmishers

- hard to say, but I'm about 50/50 either way - I think it would be interesting and useful, but I still like them as a normal unit, but would like an OPTION for skirmish...

It would be cool as skirmishing troops. maybe for an upgrade of like +1pt a model but they don't count to the minimum of core if you take them with skirmish

I like Derek's idea.  Costs about right, plus it gives you the option.
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.
