I'm playing in a tourney for Mordheim. We're going with Warbands of 1000gc with the 'fighting individual battles' rules, so there's no XP gained and no upgrades through XP, just buying them with gold. I'm going to be playing my Witchhunters, but am wondering about something: Should I slim down the number of characters in my warband and beef up the stats and skills of my heroes, or go for the full compliment, but sacrifice some stats/skills?
My thinking is to slim down the size of the Warband to maybe 6 - 8 Witchhunters (full five heroes and some flag's) and beef up the stats of my heroes. I would like to take a couple of hired characters as well, but the cost established is initial hiring plus one upkeep so am unsure. I can see danger in facing larger warbands, but the potential of having skills and stats can potentially off-set this problem.
Anyone got any ideas or counter suggestions?
