Welcome to Librarium Online!
What would be your suggestion or opinion on the best configuration for maraauders that really is cheap as chips on the points (ie: minimum possible while still be effective).
I thought maybe just shields and a standard bearer.
P.S if you need the context in my own army its on the chaos army lsit forum.

My marauders always take to the field with hand weapons, light armour and shields. They are still very cheap for what you get, and can take on most other enemy rank and file with a reasonable chance of winning (assuming you've taken a sufficient number of them, like 20+).
It goes without saying that a unit of marauders meant for close combat should have FULL command...
