First of all I would drop the one of the spearmens command groups and then merge the 2 units together so that you have 1 with 20, which is much better than two of 10. I would also drop the staff of sorcery and buy a couple of scrolls instead. I would not recomend putting every character in one unit, spread them out instead. And with the 40 points that you have left you could buy another couple of phoenix guards so that they become 20 with Caradryan in them.
The mages could hide with the archers, spearmen and bolt throwers.

the main reason all mages were with caradryn was becase of his mg(3) and then with lots of dispel power my mages will live for a long time but i probably will merge the spearmen units. or i just thought of dropping them in return for some chariots.

like Desert Rain said, i would definitely not put all the characters in one unit. it takes away the majority of your unit's ability to fight.

I agree with what has already been said. In addition you need to increase both mages to lvl 2 and find points for an eagle or 2. I would also consider lion std for the unit of 20 spears. You could find points for all these changes by dropping an archer unit and the musician from the other archer unit. Finally, perhaps just increase the PG to 18 and put caradryan and the AM there. So to sum up, something like this:

archmage
level 4
folariaths robe
talismen of saphery
jewel of the dusk 355pts

mage lvl 2
2 x scroll 175 pts

mage lvl 2
annulian crystal 175 pts

caradryn 175pts

10 archers
115 pts

20 spearmen
full command, lion std 230 pts (mage(s) here)

18 phoenix guard
full command
banner of sorcery 350 pts
(AM + caradryan here)

2 x 6 sword masters 90pts (each)

2 x reapeter bolt throwers 100pts (each)

Great eagle 50 pts

total 2000 pts
