I played in a 1k tournie today, using two units of Swordmasters, one of 10, one of fifteen.
Now, I grant, the tables were smaller than regulation, giving the bad guys less of a chance to shoot me on the way in, but the performed well. Running two units gave me much more flexability than a single unit of 25 would have.
If you have doubts about their staying power, back them up with Lore of Life, Regrowth & Flesh to Stone covereth a multitude of sins.
