    I don't like the 1x2 or 2x2 mob unit as a way of getting more individual figures into the battle.
    1) it robs them of the mobility they would naturally have
    2) it leaves them wide open to be utterly destroyed by a single fireball.

    Lots of weak units will always be at risk of a well placed fireball.

    Exactly. The swarm tactic can't be a silver bullet. It needs its strengths and its weaknesses to be fair.

    Well placed being the key words. A fireball should not always mean insta-death.
    I'm in no way suggesting a horde faction be without weaknesses. Their individual figures being weak is the first weakness. They WILL take attrition in every battle, even the ones they handily win.
