By 'ideal' I mean the best army you can design, assuming

No restrictions

based on the assumption that you could be playing any of the
six scenerios on pages 87 to 97 of the battle book, but
you don't know which scenerios in advance.

No, but assume that you be fighting several battles, each time
facing a different army in a different scenerio.

will be playing will limit cheese, so I say full flavour.

rules and I have already suggested a standard format.
