Would you be so kind as to evaluate my army. I know it is very small, but it is supposed to have a shock effect and it may go to tourneys with power players. So, ere we go!

Especially at a tournament I would think it a risk not worth taking to have your undead general out in the open. A large mount outside of a block means that every warmachine that your opponent has will likely fire at him. If you lose initiative in turn 1, your game may well be over.

You really should drop the dragon and put in more units. In 2500 points you should have at least 9 units to deploy, not 6 (half of which can't stand on their own)
