Split the Swordsmen's detachments up into 2 units of 5, and use them for screening at the start and then throw them forward for redirecting/general annoyance.

Looks good otherwise, no War Alter though!!! shocked :P

Yeah I get that alot. :)

I like the idea of splitting them up but what about when I use them for flank charges? The enemy will only have to kill 1 from each unit to keep me from killing their ranks.

Hm, seriously for an extra 55pts you can have a war alter which incorporates a 4+ ward already, has a bound spell, is a chariot and unbreakable.
The dawn armour is a good choice with the war alter and shield as it gives you a 1+ rerollable save.

I think personally you need at least one unit of knights, preferably two.
And a detachment for the great swords aswell.

The icon of magnus is a useful item. I give it to my captain (AoMI, BSB) and plonk him in a unit of 17 great swords, they should stay around for awhile.

I think the flagellants are okay. I would either take them or the great swords, not both.
I like the steam tank :D

It's definately not a bad list but lacks a few basic things like knights, war alter, shooting detachments, but hey if it works then wonderful.

Lose the Hellblaster for some Crossbow detachments.
