I'm currently deciding between: 13 greatswords + warrior priest ranked 7x2, 17 + WP ranked 6x3 or 19 + WP ranked 5x4. I'm planning on keeping a unit of swordsmen nearby with the Banner of Sigismund in it.
Hmmm, to me Greatwords work far more as Swordsmen with omph than anything with which you try to out fight the enemy, a giant sword or not, thir only at Ws 4 with 1 attack, outside of the empire those stats aren't really that amazing, but i guess the Warrior Priest hatred could help make up for their small amount of attacks.
I'd reckomend, 5x4 with a detachment of milita, give them a Warrior Priest or a Captain with Griffon Banner and they can bring it to most Elites quite comfortably.
I'd say 20-25 should make up a unit.
Our Elites are real cheap, so we can afford to do this quite easily, and we win by CRes, not by killing stuff.
I would also say 20-25, but think carefully about what sort of detachment you give them. I would say 10 swordsmen and 5 shooters, depending on the enemy you face (x-bowmen against long range enemies, handgunners against armoured opponents).
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
