    Help with Border Patrol (choice of 4 lists)

    While waiting for 7th Ed to be released (and the new Empire army book next year), I thought I'd at least get a Border Patrol force going so that I can learn the rules better when it doesn't matter as much.
    I've come up with 4 different lists, each of which needs a minimum number of boxes to be purchased (mostly 2x detachment, 1x warriors, 1x hero). For all intents and purposes they are interchangable, with the biggest difference being who the commander is, but they would all play differently (as far as I'm aware).
    I'm not sure what the standard "rules" are for Empire Border Patrol lists (all infantry, mostly cav, lots of skirmish, no magic, whatever), but these are all infantry lists without artillery.

    List 1
    1 Captain (Commander); Heavy Armor; Shield

    15 Swordsmen inc/Standard Bearer; Sergeant

    16 Spearmen w/Shield inc/Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    8 [Det] Handgunners
    8 [Det] Handgunners

    6 Huntsmen

    Casting Pool: 2
    Dispel Pool: 2
    Models in Army: 54
    Total Roster Cost: 501


    List 2
    1 Warrior Priest (Commander); Heavy Armor; Enchanted Shield

    16 Swordsmen inc/Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    8 [Det] Handgunners

    16 Spearmen w/Shield inc/Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    8 [Det] Handgunners

    Casting Pool: 2
    Dispel Pool: 3
    Models in Army: 49
    Total Roster Cost: 501


    List 3
    1 Engineer (Commander); Hochland Long Rifle; Light Armor

    11 Handgunners inc/Standard Bearer; Marksman w/Hochland Long Rifle
    5 [Det] Swordsmen
    5 [Det] Swordsmen

    16 Spearmen w/ Shield inc/Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    5 [Det] Handgunners
    8 [Det] Swordsmen

    Casting Pool: 2
    Dispel Pool: 2
    Models in Army: 51
    Total Roster Cost: 498


    List 4
    1 Battle Wizard (Commander); Wizard's Staff

    19 Swordsmen inc/Musician; Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    8 [Det] Handgunners @ [64] Pts

    16 Spearmen w/Shield inc/Musician; Standard Bearer; Sergeant
    8 [Det] Handgunners @ [64] Pts

    Casting Pool: 3
    Dispel Pool: 3
    Models in Army: 52
    Total Roster Cost: 498


    Are these worth considering? Is there a "standard" BP list that people use? Is Artillery really needed even at the BP level?

    Well, I like the 1st list more than the rest. If you want the best type of detachment... I'd recommend Free Companies, they are cheap and have 2 attacks each, handgunners make "OK" detachments, if they are ever in combat prepare to lose with them... just keep them back abit.
