So what do you think, a good solid core? It's not missing anything major is it? Think i could squeeze in another mage?

I'm pretty new at this two, but a few points,

* Its hard to really know what you're putting together in the way of characters, can you be more specific on item choice, dragon choice etc.

* I presume you mean a prince mounted on a dragon because nobles don't have the option.

* How are you planning on ranking your troups? I'd say 16 archers is 6 too many (and don't bother with the command) and 16 spearmen is 4 too little. I'd go for 5-6 dragon princes, everyone i talk to says 10 is not worth it, and 8 seems an odd number.

take the swordmasters up to 14 so you can fight in 2 ranks, and so that they actually make it to combat. drop the archers down to 10 and the spears up to 21 (3 ranks of 7).

Ok, well as for the prince on a dragon (sorry misquote there), i am going to be using the new dragon model fro HE.

As far as kit, well, i dunno i was undecided actually. Ideas?

Ok, so it seems more sword masters is needed, and more spearmen...

I can always drop some archers or dragon princes to make room for points...

Any things i am missing big time here? I see eagles commonly, are they so needed/useful?

They're dirt cheap (50 points a piece) and i hear they're good for taking out warmachine crews or stopping units marching.

Thats kinda what i was thinking, but i hadn't used one yet and wasn't sure how often they actually succeeded in those tasks.

take out the chariot to make room for one and another RBT, if you take out an archer, you have enough space

Oooh, thats a tough one. I love the chariot, an my actual thought was to make room for a second, is that such a bad idea?

i tried fielding once WL chariot on its own against some woodies. the woodies got 1st turn and shot my lovely chariot with the hail of doom arrow. its best to field them in pairs, or not at all, i think

Well, as it sounds a few tweaks here and there, and i think i have got a decent list. Thanks all for the help and if you can think of any glaring holes in the list let me know, i hope to have the army done and painted in three days :D
