Default How would you build a minor races Battleforce?

Just curious, since I'm starting to wish there was a way to buy Kroot in bulk instead of plucking their boxes off the shelves. How would you build a battleforce for your favorite minor race?

...and it has to be comperable to other boxes... not sure what their point cost is, but just for kicks, what can people come up with? Can include forgeworld stuff... (otherwise the Kroot don't have much to feild otherwise...)

I would like Harlequins back. Not sure what they originally came with, but I would like the battle force to include:

-Great Harlequin
-Shadowseer
-Solitaire
-10 Harlequin Troupers
-2 Harlequin Troup Leaders
-2 Death Jestures



That would basically be a whole harlequin army. But I could see GW making it only:

-Great Harlequin
-Solitaire
-10 Harlequin Troups
-2 Harlequin Troup Leaders

Because its cheaper, and it gives you only the basics :'( . 1 hq, 1 elite, and 2 troops choices. But that is only hoping. Maybe they would throw in 1 death jesture for some anti tank. :P

If they were to make a halequin force, i'd more expect:

Great Harlequin
10 harliquin troupers
2 troupe leaders
Venom Transport
1 death jester.

and then make additional death jesters and independant characters cost a whole bunch.

Nah, since Venoms don't have models. Then they would have to make more and GW can't do that. :P

But I understand what you are saying. I agree on everything else. I just wish my dream battle force was real.

This is not the thread for that.

I'd like to see a Mercenary army set... kinda like dogs of war in warhammer fantasy.

Would be kinda like the Demi-Urg in that they control a small area of space and hire their services out.

They would recruit from all races and hire their services out as needed.

Only a few armies would use em.

would have -

Kroot Mercenaries
Ork Freebooterz
Eldar Pirates
Human Mercs
Demi-Urg
Maybe one or two other non-used minor races.

Might be interesting.

The original Harlequins boxed set cost about $50 American back in 1990 or so, and came with something like 27 models, I think.

There was a solo model, about 3 Death Jesters with Shuriken Cannons, at least two full squads of 5 each general harlequins (maybe 3 squads of five). Then there was a bunch of other stuff that I don't specifically recall. I just remember there was a crapload of them.

How do I know? I bought the boxed set, gave it to an "artistic" friend, to paint. He painted most of 'em, whooped the crap out of me with a combined Harlequin/Aspect warrior force (Aspect warriors had just been introduced).

About '96 I threw all my Marines, Orks, and the Harlequins away. But they were tough, back in the day.
