Of course! But the backbone of the game is inf and cav, as Aldhick said.

I think Aldhick is right that monsters are overpriced. I remember it was specifically stated that High Elf Dragon Riders were, to discourage players taking too many (which would be brutal). Eventually they decided they'd been overcosted too much, and they've since dropped by 50pts. Whether they're still overcosted at all I don't know.

Even if they are more expensive than an infantry or cavalry equivalent would be, they'll always have a place. People will take them for the awesome models, and no one can concentrate the number of attacks into the small frontage that most monsters can- so a combat has to be pretty cramped before you can't get a monster in to help out.

I agree, I think monsters are overpriced. I do like them in the game, I like the contrast between the sizes of figures.
If the points are lowered and you're worried there will be too many monsters, just use the very simple max/min rule of .... -/0.5
1 monster per 2,000 points

Seems about right to me. You can get a similar, but obviously not identical effect using Chaos Warriors with the +1 armour banner (banners and other magic items are purposefully overpriced).
