it's always worth having
halberdier horde 30+
mortar
and BSb with greater ability to survive

A ward save would be your best bet, and full plate.

Those spearman units are far, far too small
Even in a 500 point game, 20 strong units are a must, And with Spearman especially so. I'd swap them out for Halberdiers.

If this is you are building this army now, focus on getting two things. State Troops and mortars. Greatswords are too expensive to be fielded in effective numbers at such a small point level.

the spearmen are there because the most of this army is built on what ive got, and the halberds+greatswords are to form the grimblades and carroburg few units from nick kyme's book 'Grimblades' so i thought i should use them if i have them.

I would remove spearmen and add more halberdiers
