I like the approach your taking here, its unusual from what I've seen.

Anyway, even though the core point of your list is that you aren't taking any magic, I think a lack of magic defense will hurt you badly. You only have the Ring of Hotek as far as I can see.

I would suggest a level 1 Sorceress with 2 Dispel Scrolls.

This will safeguard your army against the worst of the damage, allowing you to get your vital Knights into combat so you can smash your opponent.

Aside from that I really like it, good luck :D.

A level one with 2 scrolls is a must. All she'll do is sit in a forest, or occasionally poke her head out to throw one dice at a magic missile.

I'd also suggest putting a magic weapon on at least one of the characters, even if it's just the Biting Blade so you can take on Ethereals.

I'd take the knights in units of 6, with champions and musicians, and a null talisman on the champions for some more anti-magic.

Also, I'd drop 2 units of xbows and take shades instead- they're so much better it's unreal...

Nice list, i agree you may want to take a scroll caddy for the reasons suggested, tho it depends on how much you want to win. But it would be a shame if you had to just watch your opponent apply beast cowers to your hydra and dragon for half the game.
