it started out at first that i was making alot of lists based around magic but i wasnt really liking them that much; so i decided to try and go a different route from what i first thought i would want. hows this look?

you will probably be eaten by magic. The only magic resistance you have is 2 dispel dice standard and magic res banner for spells against your pheonix guard and the banner of the world dragon. So they can spell spam you eagles/spearmen and dragon easily.

Play this army if you want but you wont gain any friends from it because you have taken many cheesy things people have talked about on the forums and put them in 1 list

so just so i know is the list weak or strong? you're are sending me mixed signals; or is it more of the fact that its a win big or lose horribly list?

I hate load outs from armybuilder. Harder to read...

Anyways, magic heavy lists will provide a problem unless you use your list very, very intelligently. Which as you're a beginner, may not be that easy...

Personally i'm a fan of lords on star dragon with star lance, guardian phoenix, dragon armour of caledor and talisman of loec. Less saves, but hits harder, especially combined with Loec. After all, who needs mundane equipment?

Stubborn phoenix guard are nice (i personally like swordmasters for killyness, but they do tend to die like flies).

I'm not really seeing a great synergy in the army. You have a decent (if a bit too large) cavalry unit and a killy dragon and some fast eagles to distract stuff, but then you have 3 big blocks of slow infantry? No shooting either to knock rank bonuses off stuff.

Its strong in the sense of it has some cheesy hard units (dragon prince set up, star dragon and the phoenix guard being led by a white lion hero.

But if you ago against anyone with sense with decent magic and shooting then you would be in alot of trouble.
