Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but am thinking of doing a Marienburger mercenary army, I know there's no army book on Marienburgers, what I'm wondering is am I best off using the Empire army to build my army up?

The way I went it about is as follows: I made it a Dutch army, Marienburg being based on the dutch cities of Amsterdam/Rotterdam. I also chose a time period: the 80 years war (for you english, the 30 years war) which is slightly later than the current empire models, so i gave everyone round pants.
And i thought, as a later period empire army, i removed knights from my army and went for a more static gunline force and pistoliers.
Some external fluff on Marienburg:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marienburg_(Warhammer)A lot of other people have taken Marienburger not as a dutch town perse, but as a rich city that employes lots of mercaneries. All up to you, any ideas on which direction you wanna take?Marienburg is a fictional city in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. It is a wealthy city that has broken apart from the rest of the Empire, and is roughly analogous to the 16th and 17th century Dutch Republic, although as with many of the Warhammer Background's Cities it also is heavy influenced by UK locations, in this case mainly Liverpool. It is renowned for its flourishing sea trade and the flamboyant dress of its merchants. At the time of the setting of the Games Workshop game Mordheim, it had not yet broken away.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
To be honest you would get a more competative army if you used the Empire list.
You get a better selection of magical items, more troop options, better heroes, though I would drop the Priest of Sigmar and you can still add Dogs of War.
You also don't need to take a Paymaster.
