I like this army a lot, and it will be all plastic which is a plus, but I played a game last night against WE and got thrashed. I know I made some stupid moves but was still hoping this list looked good. Any comments?

The list looks very good indeed, if you got trashed it can't be the army list's fault. But can a BsB take other magic items? I tought not. Your best buy would be the stormbanner, negating shooting and flyers for at least one turn.

Correct me if I am wrong but I thought a BSB could take other magic items so long as he didn't take a magic banner. And I thought about the Storm Banner but I now that I'm not always going to be playing WE, and as it turned out his army only had a unit of 10 Glade Guard and a unit of 5 Glade Riders; the rest was a lot of forest spirits and Wardancers.

You are correct. Otherwise BSB's would be pretty worthless, i'd say. I would'nt keep them out of combat just to keep them alive...:)

Must be some relic from an earlier edition, then.

Well then I don't see anything wrong with your list, but maybe you can get a third ratogre and promote that one to a champion? That way they become a real threat to the enemy, especially smaller units and flank charges.
