Probably could do with some combat troops, as soon as anything reasonably hitty reaches your lines, you'll be in trouble.

I hope your opponents like gun-lines, because if not I can't see them wanting to play against that list more than once (if at all), and if it's tournaments you're thinking of, then:

Yeah for tournaments but also for these 2 people who I regulary play who take cheesey lists so I plan to give them a taste of their own medicine :D

It needs unbreakables to hold up the fastest / most armoured / scariest enemy unit while you shoot the rest.
- Tank
- War Altar (With Meteoric Iron and Dawnstone)
- small blocks of greatswords or flagellants, arranged as conga-lines if you want to be a real *****. (But don't do this unless you *know* this is a win-at-all-costs environment!)
- Drop a few guns to pay for this. As it stands, your army will be 50 models wide. If you get rid of a few regular guys, you can shrink the frontage down and deploy on one flank. This helps minimise the number of targets you need to worry about at once.

That can be a daunting prospect if things go well. I'd run it like that at least once to give it a try. Adding combat troops might be necessary but will water it down.

Just remember that 20 Musketeers at long range will only kill 4-5 unarmoured T3 guys in the open. In some instances, it can be frustrating to kill just one.

Btw, your BSB is illegal. A BSB with a magic banner can have next to no equipment. Full plate and a barded horse are about it.

He can, just no magic items.

Unless he was errata'd, he can't. Look at the BSB entry.

No, you're right, my mistake. I just thought he was only restricted on magic items, sorry.

Well I plan to ally this army with my 2.5k vampire counts horde army so I feel sorry for the person who has to face it
