I've been out of the game for a good while so I need some advice. From what I've been told about 8th is that character wise you need a Lv4 and a BSB. I understand the BSB as the reroll benifit is awesome, but wouldn't a Lv4 be too many points in one model at this points level?

BSB can't be your army general. So, you need anouther charecetr. Lv.4, as suggetsed above, sounds good.

I edited the list to add in the Archmage, though I am still unsure of what Lore to give him. I like the look of Life and Shadow, but I'm not sure.

Any advice or preferences?

Looking at your revised list I'd suggest life as you don't have another mage for buffs. Also as the Archmage will probably be very important to your overall strategy the Throne of Vines spells to help prevent miscast will be quite beneficial (along with Regrowth, Life's Blood, & Dwellers if you gets these spells).

Shadow would be good if you had a second mage to cast buff spells.

You also have 16 pts. left so I'd suggest buying a musician for the archer unit to allow for swift reforms and purchase another archer or give someone a 10 pts. magic item.

I had the following comments & suggestions. The Archmage’s lore should likely be the Lore of Life. Also maybe think about cutting something so can add a Mage. Also I suggest switching the Banner of Eternal Flame to the Spearmen, switching the Banner of Sorcery to the White Lions and giving the Dragon Princes the Banner of Ellyrion.
