The only glaring weakness i can see is that you are relying on a lot of low strength attacks. There is not any agressive elements either. It seems that this army is good at slowing down units but it lacks anything to take the fight ot the enemy. I'd recommend white lions as it is a unit i swear by.T hey are stubborn so with the bsb nearby can weather most assaults and hit back incredibly hard.I think it will do well if it has a little more punch..

I agree. I seem to barely manage to kill dwarves with my large block of spearmen, but my white lions rip them apart. You could replace one of the archer units with 5 WLs and command and have 5pts to spare, although that's probably not enough, maybe trade some PG or shadow warriors for more WL
