I use these as Darksouls or Brethren in the Possessed Warband; I just love the way they look as models, and the way that the paint job came out.

I painted these up for a human warband that I have been working on. To be honest, there isn't one specifically that I am making this for, but rather, I'd just like to have a scrupulously-aligned, shooty warband at some point.
Thus far, all of my warbands have been evil (Skaven, Possessed, Beastmen) and almost exclusively close-combat fighters. I plan to use these archers (from the plastic Brettonian set) for either an Averlander, Ostlander or Reiklander warband.
Painting these were pretty fun — my goal was to do the lot in a set amount of time, and I couldn't exceed that time, so I had to budget my time accordingly. Only about 7 colors were used, with mixing being an integral part, and work on quick blends (using lots of drying retarder and mixing on the mini itself).

Human warbands often use wardogs to hunt and immobilize their opponents.
Beastmen and the Possessed do the same; their Beasthounds' incomparable speed allows for easily flanking and destruction of their prey.
An Ogre Mercenary can easily turn the tide of even the most lopsided battles, but at a price. Be it blood or bullion, he will get his pay.
His Skaven counterpart, the Rat Ogre, has been known to tear through entire warbands, leaving nothing in his wake but a trail of gore.
