Ok so your going to have around 14-17 pd a turn, and 1 bound. You had better pray you have good magic phases or else your in trouble.

You have hardly any close combat and with 4 repeater bt thats alot of points into shooting that can be easily taken out if your not careful. How do you plan to set them up and put the characters?!? All in 1 unit of white lions?

you also should ditch a bt for a great eagle as you have nothing to slow your enemy down with.

Far too much reliance on Magic for my taste (eggs in one basket syndrome). There are plenty of anti-magic Combos which let you take some hard hitting Combat Characters/Troops instead. (Loremasters Cloak, Banner of the World Dragon). Getting to strike first in Combat is a huge advantage for HE, I'd drop at least 2 of the Mages and at least 2 of the Bolt Throwers and beef up the Combat side of things (Swordmasters, Phoenix Guard & Dragon Princes or even a Character on a Dragon).

Your Lord is gonna get cannon sniped, and I personally think the VoD are not that useful for their price on a horse mounted lord, much prefer the Helm of Fortune.

BoS is not too useful for 2 level 2s imo, but is still decent though I'd rather give the Lions the Lion Standard so their stubborn works against the big nasties.

Noble on foot, I'd rather give him the Armour of Caledor and a Great Weapon.

Swordmasters could use a champ imo.

20 Spears seems like a lot, I tend to field 14 with a mage in there, but that's personal preference.

Fraid you cant have that many hero slots (the Dragon takes up one in addittion to the Prince)

What dragon?

That was exactly my question, where do you see a dragon? My Prince has Dragon ARMOUR, and a Star LANCE, so maybe you thought you saw Star Dragon?
