They will make up the Warriors (as opposed to Hearthguard) for my Saga warband - 8 warriors counts as 1 point. Four points is a starter warband.
Initially, to keep costs low, I'll stick to 4 units of Warriors, which I can make from this one box of plastics. I'll pick up some Hirdmen, probably in metal since I only need a small number, after I've played a bit.
Admittedly, their shields can use some work, but overall, I'm happy with their appearance.

I was under the impression the box came with bases, but I might have misread that. I bought the box on ebay, so make of that what you will.
I ordered bases last week and they should be here in a few days.
