It wasn't my fault - some friends were talking about Warhammer on a small scale (game size-wise, not figure scale-wise) and I suggested the old 500 point Border Patrol version, and then I worked out that I could do an Ogre Kingdoms Border Patrol with only ten figures from the £49.99 boxed set from Mantic and still get three units out of it...
In fact with a hero, 12 warriors (Bulls in modern WFB-speak), and 6 blunderbuss wielders (clearly intended as proxies for Leadbelchers) it only really needs the standard bearer from this set (below) being fielded as a Bruiser with an Army Standard to come up to around 1000 points.
Oh dear. This has guaranteed the arrival of WFB9 before I get those ten Ogres finished. Sorry about that.
(There is even a Skrag the Slaughterer in modern WFB but he's nothing like the original).
