SAGA: Propainter's Viking Archers
I haven't based these properly, since I have decided to go get some more GF9 magnetic round bases to put them and any future single-based troops on. It does add to the cost of the army but is very useful.
In that list, they provide a useful means of harassing the enemy and are even very useful in melee due to the 'Lords of Battle' ability.
That ability not only grants them extra dice (a proportionately large boost to a small unit of levy) but tends to exhaust or almost exhaust any unit that fights them. So some of my opponents' best troops have ended up stuck and vulnerable after chasing a handful of peasants.
