So like the title says would a mostly marauder army work? That is spending more points an marauders on foot and on horse than Warriors in the core slot. So maybe like one unit of warriors and one unit of knights. Then spend more points on powerful characters and monsters. As Marauders have the same stats and up grades as empire swordsmen I wouldn't think they can be that bad. I think marauders just get a bad rap because of how bad they are compared to everything in the WoC list. They always die because they are the easiest to kill.
