Default warrior army possibility

hey, i just discovered that you can get up to 72 warriors in 1 army, 'cause they can be HQ, elites and fast attack(if you give them wings)
I'm now thinking of making an army this way.
anyone ideas?
War isn't a game! Oh, sure one side wins and the other side loses,
and it's a lot of fun. But... well... hey, maybe it IS a game.

Well, you would have spent a lot of points, without upgrades (except wings), so you'd be grasping for extra points. You'd have many squads, so you'd be able to specialize.

You'd need troops choices. Two bare-bones gaunt mobs would meet the minimum troops.

An example list would probably look something like this:
HQ = 252 + upgrades
-9 Warriors + upgrades
-9 Warriors + upgrades

Elites = 378 + upgrades
-9 Warriors + upgrades
-9 Warriors + upgrades
-9 Warriors + upgrades

Troops = 80 + upgrades
-10 Gaunts + upgrades
-10 Gaunts + upgrades

Fast Attack = 756 + upgrades
-9 Warriors + wings + upgrades
-9 Warriors + wings + upgrades
-9 Warriors + wings + upgrades

Total: 1466 + upgrades[/spoiler]

This could be an interesting army to play, but having 72 warriors would only be viable in very large games.

I could see this as an apocalypse formation, though.

I also made the banner.

It would be a fun army to play but i can see a problem against enemy tanks. Nothing against the idea though it sounds like a very fun army to play
