"Optimal" commons repackaging

This is way too pointless for a thread, so naturally it belongs in a blog post.

I was thinking about the odd combinations of units that have been released in various common packs, as well as in the SOTM set. If we assume that the same number of packs had to be released over time, what would have been the "best" way to package these commons, from a hardcore HS consumer's perspective? I'll take into account three criteria:
  1. Figures that you might want in roughly similar quantities should be packaged together.
  2. Figures that could be used together effectively are nice to put together.
  3. Figures that are thematically linked can be put together, all things being equal.
So, without further ado, some pairings.

I love you just the way you are:
  • Zombie Horde
  • Knights Templar
  • Marro Cavalry
  • Spearmen and Riflemen
Obviously the first three go great with themselves, and the Ashigaru pack is similarly great.

Slam Dunks:
  • Gladiatrons and Blastarons
  • Arrow

Ridiculously simple OM management armies

I was just idly thinking... if you were only allowed to put OMs on a single card, what 500 point, 24 hex armies would be playable? The inability to fill in with other units makes the 500 point limit a lot more restrictive. Here's what I could come up with. OM sink in bold.

200 Kato Katsuro
180 Ashigaru Harquebus x3
120 Ashigaru Yari x3
500, 25 hexes (lose one figure)
Comments: The one that got me thinking. Other than the well-known problem (crappy defense) this is a solid army.

120 Arrow Gruts x3
100 Swog Rider x4
120 Krug
150 Mimring
490, 21 hexes
Comments: Another pretty standard army.

160 Marro Hive
240 Marro Stingers x4
100 Marro Druge/Drones x2
500, 24 hexes
Comments: It's tough to make good use of the Hive with only 24 hexes to work with.

250 Roman Legionnaires x5
100 Marcus Decimus Gallus
