Oh, and I have too much free time (no I don't I don't have any free time, what the hell am I doing?)Mercenary
I could easily live several lifetimes without quashing another peasant revolt. Unless, of course, the revolt pays good gold. Ale doesn't buy itself, you know.
(Core) War never ends in the Old World and that means there's always a need for fighting men. While the Empire does maintain a regular army, its strength is bolstered by the Mercenaries. Nobles and rich Merchants also hire such fighters to protect their interests, many having what amounts to small armies.
Mercenaries range from wild youths with a taste for adventure to professional grizzled soldiers who've seen a dozen battles or more. These sell-swords come from all over, though Tilea is particular famed for its regiments. All Mercenaries dream of untold riches; for most of them, the reality is an early death and an unmarked grave.

Tilea: Mercenaries are so common in Tilea that they are represented by guilds. Tilean mercenaries are known for their bargaining skills and have even switched sides during battle when offered more money by their opponents.
Talent: Specialist Weapon (Two-handed) or Strike to Stun
Weapon: Tilean pike or crossbow
Empire: The Empire's mercenaries are adventuring ruffians with a wide assortment of weapons. These men from free company regiments in the Empire's armies, or travel to the Border Princes when there are no wars to fight at home.
Talent: Specialist weapon (parrying) or Sharpshooter
Weapon: Additional hand weapon or bow
Bretonnia: Bretonnia lords do not hire mercenaries in their armies, considering them a waste of money when peasants cost nothing at all. Bretonnian mercenaries are therefore rare, but not unheard of.
Talent: Specialist weapon (Cavalry) or Sharpshooter
Weapon: Demilance or bow
Border Princes: Mercenaries are the mainstay of Border Princede armies, travelling from across the Old World to make their living. Native Border Princede mercenaries typically fight as the core troops of an army.
Talent: Sharpshooter or Strike to Stun
Weapon: Spear or crossbow
Kislev: Bravery and resilience are the qualities sought by the employers of Kislevite mercenaries. These men are often hired to bolster standing armies against Chaos threats. Kislevite horsemen, however, are loyal only to their own clans, and do not work as mercenaries.
Talent: Stout-Hearted or Street Fighting
Weapon: Knuckle dusters or bow
Estalia: Estalian mercenaries are skilled swordsmen with hot tempers. Because they don't cooperate well with other mercenaries, Estalians are often hired in smaller groups and given special objectives to handle on their own. They perform well at this role.
Talent: Specialist weapon (Parrying) or Strike to stun
Weapon: Main gauche or crossbow
Norsca: Norse mercenaries are considered too unreliable for regular use, because they sometimes disregard orders in the heat of battle. Nevertheless, Norse mercenaries are occasionally employed for intimidation value.
Talent: Frenzy or Menacing
Weapon: Additional hand weapon or bow
Araby: The horsemen of Araby are widely considered to be among the best in the world (although Kislevite horsemen might disagree). Most Arabyan mercenaries who travel to the Old World arrive without mounts, but they can serve as cavalry if equipped by their employers.
Talent: Trick Riding or Specialist Weapon (Fencing)
Weapon: Scimitar (as rapier) or bow
Thanks, that is so much easier to read.
I'll start my CS tomorrow.
