Yeah, I will definately try that out! These photos really do not do them justice (almost, but not quite...)
My warband will look something like this (using Svenn and Tewfiks generator, which I LOVE coincidentally!)
Sword, Shield, Helmet
Later on, he will get a Heavy Armour, making him hard to take out. I picture him doing this to his enemies when I give him the Unstoppable Charge skill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_G3c02VztM (look at 1:29, where he kills the big dude)
Spear and Shield
This guy will later on get a Heavy Armour as well, making him a juggernaut in defense, as he may both strike first, and if he misses, he can still get away with it.
Halberd, Sword, Shield
This one will get a Light Armour, and if I can afford it, a heavy armour as well, but then I will sell the Shield as I need a character with a Halberd to be the one who charges, and not get charged.
This guy will be(come) the Sniper of the warband, and with a heavy armour and sword, he will not be dead meat if cornered inside a building either!
Spear and Shield
This guy will only get a Light Armour as he will be the runner, circling the battlefield and taking out any opposition.
Swords and Daggers
later on Light Armour and Shields (I know, bucklers are better, but Fluff-wise, these guys would be wearing shields)
Crossbows and Daggers
Later on, I will have another group of marksmen, and max them out with Crossbows and Light Armour.
This gives me only 10 models to start with, but I have had worse starting warbands than that and still gotten far. I have 5 crowns left and will probably get myself another Swordsman and two units of warriors, two spearmen and two halberdiers.
I know many tend to rack on the Halberd, but I gotta say, as a cheap offensive weapon, it is REALLY good and has yet to let me down.
