I must say that I really like your army list. It looks like a very fluffy list. As the Empire is (supposed) to be known for its pike regiments, if painted up in Averland colors this could work. With only a scroll caddy for stopping magic, you've got your two officers without magical weapons, which again makes the army feel more 'real'. Plus you've got enough halflings to show a halfling regiment. Overall it has the real feel of a Blackfire Pass regiment. The only thing I might do is try to squeeze some more points into the pikeman regiments to get units of 25. This will let them absorb some damage before losing the 3 ranks and all of their attacks. Perhaps drop 10 crossbowmen and use those 80 points to get 4 extra pikemen in each unit. Then with the captain/paymaster, both units have 25 models.
