That would be nice. I have a lot of old minis I would want to use for them, they don't look too convincing as Greatswords.

Reiksguard Foot knights would be cool, but as long as they don't get Stubborn or Great weapons. Because that would in effect, make the Greatswords useless.

Greatswords should be the elite infantry of the Empire. Period.

Why not merge them into the same unit? Elite Infantry, representing everything from Foot Knights to Greatswords? If I remember right, in 6th ed, Reiksguard DID count as Greatswords after all...

Yeah I remember the wording of that in sixth ed too.

But I believe strongly that if a unit type is introduced as foot knights then greatswordsmen will become obsolete

I like the build your own soldier option.  a choice of a few different weapons and a choice of a few different psychology bonuses.  My personal favourite would be halberd armed (well pollaxe really) fullplate soldiers with stubborn, and hatred.
