Making this list with the intention of playing against WoC. Looking for some heaving hitting units to stop his chariots. Hopefully my Phoenix Guard unit isnt too death-starry. Appreciate any comments.

Trying for some good magic defense. Looking for my chariot/dragon princes/great eagle to slow up his chariots. Going to use magic/shooting/phoenix guards against infantry. I was wondering if the 500 point phoenix guard unit is a deathstar? Did I sink too many points into them?

Your Dragon princesses need to be at least 5 girls strong.
And yeah, the army looks really small, I think you overdid the Phoenix Guard unit.

Not at all. Anyway, on to the army list.

4 (5) Dragon Princes are going to struggle to break an enemy unit with a frontal charge and this does not change on addition of the Prince to the unit. You are effectively paying 473 points for a flanking unit! Your Prince needs to change. Either make him an Archmage or put him on foot to help support the infantry line.

I can't see these two getting much through. I would drop them down to level 1's and concentrate on magic defense (or swap out your Prince for an Archmage).
