Hello! This is my first warband. I've played one game with this warband, winning it.
I will be very happy to have some comments on the warband itself and advices on how to improve it during a campaign.
Thank you!

I like the warband. My only advice would be to play to your strengths and give every hero a crossbow when you can afford it. The Miragleans are shooters so maximize your marksmen as well.

That said I would hope for a Duelist to get lads got talent and make him a fighter to protect your shooting heroes and give you some flexibility. Not something that is necessary but it is nice when it happens.

Give the Capatain and the second champion a crossbow.

Maybe you can improve the younbloods as fighting talent in your warband.

I also use 2-3 pike warriors as first line of defense.

I would avoid pikes unless you are prepared to make house rules or are happy with one set of the existing rules.

Using the original rules may require a lot of house ruling on how the reach of the pike works, depending on your players. We gave up.

Using the BTB rules didn't appeal to me since our group already has house ruled the spear.

After the first game I have 70 cg to spend... so i'm thinking about a warrior with pike and a crossbow to the captain (62 cg).

Yes the pikes rules are not so good, but I want to maximize the charcterization of my band so crossbows, rapiers, pikes and duelling pistols are ok, and i aim to avoid axes, bows and other non reinassance italian weapons.

Another question: I like a lot some hired swords (expecially the witch) so which hired sword is the best for a Tilean warband? And is a good choice to take one of them?

I like the witch for Tileans. I also like the duelist, the Tilean Marksman, the swashbuckler and the elven ranger.

The witch is plain awesome as a HS for any band. Miragleans have good marksmen, and excellent possibillities for good cc with duellists with rapiers and augmentation of a few duelling pistols, so I tend to lean towards special use hired swords that give different perks, instead of shooty/cc ones. As for development of the warband I echo Von Kurst and SerialMoM. I use pikes for the youngbloods in my Miraglean warband, and I think the original rules work pretty well.
