as far as i can tell you don't have all that much hitting power. I would change you're specials around to include something that can flank and cut apart the enemy. Swordmasters or White lions come to mind since your entire army is based around infantry. Also you might want something to deal with monsters, and something for magic too...

The rule for fear in combat is your opponent takes a leadership test, if they fail their WS and I are reduced to 1. That is big for your army concidering you cause fear so WONT be reduced but could affect your opponent.

I was thinking a VERY similar thing, but with 2 blocks of 50 Seaguard in Horde, and a unit of 40 Phoenix Guard. Got me a few more points to get a mage or two in there. The Lore of Shadows Strenght=Ld spell is GROSS for Spear hordes. Ok, so I hit you on 3's or 4's with rerolls, then wound on 2, with..well..no real conceivable armour saves. They average 30 kills against WS4+ models without ward saves.

Wow Assasin that is one gross combo. WOuld be nice to take a fire mage and a shadow mage by the sound of it. Have to pick lores in your army list but still roll for spells so not sure if you get the spell.
Is that shadow spell the basic one you can drop to? I dont think it would be, sounds too good for that.
