Thank you for your response. Now, on to the actual point of my post... Which army is the standard, or closest to the design goal, or otherwise considered the most balanced by the design team?
No super powerful special rules
Access to every unit type (Monsters, cavalry, war machines, archers) none of which are the best of their type
No access to powerful synergies (divination WarMachines, engineers, 1+AS, buff/hex wagons)
Good (S5 T5) but not great (low WS, low I, no easy access to Plate Armour or Lightning Reflexes) combat lords
