Based on the legacy of kain computer game series this is my first fluffy army.
The problem is im wondering if it would be a little... annoying to play against.

I know I'm going to get dominated in the magic phase but i think the reaction to pulling out 120 spearmen might be worth it.

You could consider 5 units of 24 spearmen. You'll get 6*4 formations, and a single arrow won't cost you a rank. Or 4 units of 28 (4*7), and give the CoK champion a trinket.

OKaii honestly i mean ur army's like cool i've personally luved a heavy warrior Dark Elf army since i've been kicking **** with it but urs is a bit over the top....Like if u want to play heavy warriors then u need a cauldron or at least two to maybe up ur game since it makes the warriors alot more dynamic and "killi" btw Makarion is aboslutely correct...when play elves u must ensure u get the maximum amount of attacks meaning ranks of seven.....and 4 deep so maybe 4 units of 28 Warriors with full command....and then two bigger units of Crossbowmen (16) i mean it's still 6 units of warriors which is wat i think ur looking for i think i don't know "no idea wat legacy of kain is" soz...

Like heavy warriors always makes a friendly list but with some skill it's actually quite a dreadful piece of **** since u'll find the extra models make such a huge difference in the long run...

Maybe you could up the Cold One Knight unit a bit more call them "Retainers" like i mean every Lieutenant has like a Squire or like an apprentice u know...

Sword of Ruin on a lord is so pointless...i mean yeah ignore armour saves is cool but ur only str4 means getting wounds are hard against Orks; New Chaos; Ogres....instead drop it for like a Ring of Darkness and give him a GW....throw him in the unit of Blackguard with the banner of Hag Graef "a must have" and then give ur tower master a ring of hotek...more magic protection....

So if u drop a unit of 28 warriors u should have enough points to get all that....

Means u only have 5 units of warriors but just throw in the blackguard and call them and elite clan or something....idk just guessing...
