HEROES

Commander, shield, heavy armour, hand weapon, great weapon, foe bane and guardinan pheonix.
130pts

TROOPS
15 Archers, full commande, light armour
225pts

16 Archers, light armour, full command
238pts

8 Silver Helms, Shields, heavy armour, full comand, Banner of Ellyrion
234pts

16 spearmen, full command
206pts

SPECIAL UNITS

5 Dragon Princes, Champion, standard

18 Swordmasters of Hoeth, full command
264pts

1 Tiranoc Chariot
85pts

Rare units

1 Great Eagle

1 Repeater bolt thrower

Well, I'd like to know how to improve it please.

well...i saw this thread at warhammer.org as well, but as you dont have any comments here, i will comment on it.

1st: that archmage must be on foot...you dont want thinks targetting him (shooting + magic)

Id drop the foe bane, for enchanted shield and a lance and mount him on horse.

you cant take more then 10 archers in one unit...too much of a point sink. the light armor and command should also be dropped. this is becuase you want archers to stay out of combat and support the army from a distance. hence i would have one unit of 10 with no armor or command, and swap the other unit for an RBT and eagle. with the spare you points you get from the first unit boost the spears to 20, and add a second chariot if you have points.

finally i would split those helms into two units of 5, dropping all command, but giving them full armor.

Be careful with that unit of sword master poweful but fragile. Eagles are invaluable tools but you will rarely need as many as 3. Are you playing an artillery / magic heavy army? The archers are an unusual choice but try them out. 1 unit is generally all you'd want. I'd personally drop one eagle and one unit of archers and take some another unit of Silver Helms and increase the size of the spear unit.

keep it real, well, as real as you can in a fictional fantasy world set table top wargame.
