Having Eternal Guard without a Noble to put in them is not a great idea. Put a BSB Noble in there if you're going to have them.

I think you have too much CC units and not enough shooting... some waywatchers or scouts might be nice.

Pageant of Shrikes is a strange choice... Annoyance would be better.

Glamourweave is a waste of points, just stay out of LOS and spend your points on something better. My favorite set-up is a Weaver with Calaingor's and 3 Scrolls.

Wild Riders don't need a Noble. They hit hard as it is, and hav LD9. War Dancers on the other hand can benefit greatly from a little extra LD and hittiness. (Especially in subsequent rounds the Noble can really turn it around...)

Definitely get a Great Eagle. 50 points is a steal for how versatile they are...

Hey Caligula, been a while since I saw you post, trust you are well.

To the list, I concur with much of Wreckage's suggestions.

Glamourweave isn't really all that helpful in most circumstances. The hearthstone is similarly underwhelming. I'd look into the wand of wych elm which at 55 points is a big investment, but rerolling your dispel dice is truly awesome.

The troops seem generally well done. I don't care for eternal guard but if you're taking them put a noble there as mentioned.

I'd look at getting a warbanner for the wild riders since a single bad round of dice and you could be moving 3d6 in the wrong direction.
