Charismatic
Cutlass Master: These short, single bladed swords are the mainstays of any pirate crew, and in the hands of a trained seaman they are superb weapons for close quarters fighting. If the pirate is equipped with a Sword, this skill will give him the additional benefit of also being able to parry successfully if the player rolls equal to number rolled to hit, not just higher as normal. This extra ability only apply if the Pirate is not in the open; i.e.., only when in cover or in a building, within 2" of a terrain feature like a wall or tree, etc. 
Swashbuckler: The pirate cuts a dashing figure in combat, mixing dazzling swordplay and acrobatic feats with charm and witty comments. Even the basest villains in Mordheim respect (and curse) his ability to always seem to effortlessly slip from their grasp. The pirate may make a Leadership Test at the end of any Hand to Hand phase (pirate’s or enemy’s turn) if he is still in base contact with any enemy models. If he passes he may make a normal movement away from the enemy (he may not run or charge), without the enemy striking any blows on him. If he fails the test he remains in hand to hand combat and must fight as normal in the following turn.
Spy Glass: A pirate can use his trusty spy glass to examine the combat ground, spotting any yellow dogs who try to sneak about! At the start of his turn, the owner can try to detect one Hidden enemy model to which he has normal Line of Sight. On a roll of 4+, the model looses his Hidden status. The spying Pirate can move as normal in that turn, but cannot run or charge.
Enchanted Compass: This apparently broken compass does not point North put to what the owner most desires.  Roll a D6 after every battle on a roll of 1-4 the Bucaneers' never ending love for rum has got the better of him and the warband find nothing but rum, on a 5-6 the Buckaneer has his thoughts straight and leads the warband to a mighty horde, D3 extra treasure/wyrdstone.
Can be hired by any warband apart from Former Guardsmen, Witch Hunters, Sisters of Sigmar or ones containing a bounty hunter

Norscan Wayfarer 40gc hire/20gc upkeep  + 15 to warband rating

Keen Senses: Wayfinders spot all Hidden models within DOUBLE Initiative distance
May take shooting, combat, speed and Norscan Explorers speacial skills.
May be hired by pretty much anything except Brettonians.

Philosopher 35gc hire/20gc upkeep  +20 to warband rating
M4 WS3 BS3 S3 T3 W1 I3 A1 Ld8
Dagger, Crossbow, Club
May take academic, speed and shooting skills.
Philosophy; The Philosopher may learn these studies instead of skills. They are randomly generated like spells. He starts with one study.
1. Study of Tactica: Allows owning player to redeploy d3 of his models after setup but before the frst turn begins.
2. Study of History: Allows the owning warband's models to hate the enmy warband on a roll of 4+ before the battle.
3. Study of Natural Philosophy: The owning warband gains +1 to hit any animals in the enmy warband.
4. Study of Mechanics: Gives +4" range to all crossbows in owning warband, and if the crossbow rolls a 6 to hit the hit gains +1 strength.
5. Study of Alchemy: On the roll of a 4 after each battle, the owning warband gains either 1xfire arrows or 1xsuperior blackpowder, their choice.

Might be that hired swords are all cheap but most of those seem pretty damn cheap.

I think you should raise the cost of the champ of Mal, he could smash the armadillo out of most people's leaders.
