not bad, two cannons and two hellblasters is a bit much, maybe take out a hellblaster and put in some handgunners. You also go a bit heavy on the knights, maybe take out one unit and take more infantry or maybe some pistoliers.

you also have no mages (almost a must for magic defense) and no engineers (good for making your cannons more reliable).

Where are the mortars!? I would recommend replacing a helblaster with a mortar and some more troops.

What are your warrior priest equiped with? in my opinon the templar grand master does not need the SoP, just give him a lance. get some gear for your priests, and lastly toss out the second blaster and get a mortar.

Um....has anyone mentioned a 'mortar";)

I suggest using some shooters, as in crossbows and or handgunners.

I LIKE cannons, the hellblaster is okay too. In the long hall of a game I've taken out more enemy troops with crossbows and handgunners than cannons. Less guessing is needed to shoot at enemy units.

If you already have the models (artillery that is), try them in a couple of games. Buy some crossbows and hand gunners too.

It's always a very good idea to have extra/reserve units. That allows you to be able to rotate units, have more than one roster to place on the field.
