Yet More Warmaster Ancients Ramblings

I had a crack at pointing up an army from the Norse list today, using the minimum number of units I could get away with. It looks like this:

1 unit Hirdmen (3 bases/unit = 3 bases) @ 75 pts/unit = 75
4 units Bondi (3 bases/unit = 12 bases)@ 50 pts/unit = 200
2 units Archers (3 bases/unit = 3 bases) @ 40 pts/unit = 80
1 unit Berserkers (3 bases/unit = 3 bases) @ 50 points = 50
1 General (1 base) @ 100 points = 100

Total bases = 24 + 1 command / Total Points = 505

Assuming an average of 6 to 8 Pendraken figures per 40mm x 20mm base (I've tried it and that's about right) then this lot equates to around 150 - 200 figures or so.

I reckon this is manageable and the Anglo Saxon list is very similar in unit terms and points values too. I suppose you could pack more figures onto a base but you'd be pushed to get more than 8 in the space, although a shieldwall would require something like this to look sufficiently wall-like.

The eventual goal would be to build 1000 point armies but this seems like a sensible starting point and one which would keep the cost down to something reasonable?
