I find an arch lector is only worth taking if you put him on a war altar. Otherwise, the arch lector is not that much better than a warrior priest. The AL can take more points in magic items, but you can probably move some stuff around to get him what you want.
With these savings, i'd lose the archers and xbows and use the points to get detachments.

People seem to not like detachments, but I find them to be no different than a normal cheap unit, plus it deploys at the same time helping you get that +1 for first turn.

If you want extra deployments to see where he his deploying stuff, then small units of 5 archers wouldbe the way to go.

Ld9 is immensely better and well worth the extra 35pts.

A good list I reckon... but those crossbowmen probably won't achieve anything.

I'd skip em for more men... youll find that your 2 infantry blocks will start losing combat efficiency very quickly and since you cant rely on out-shooting the enemy with that list you probably lose men on the way on...and chance sare youll be striking last...

More men.... needs more men

I prefer without the stank. Because you have demigryphs and the greatsword unit is a respectable size. Maybe with the stank, cut out 1 cannon (the tank has a cannon anyway) and use those points to beef up the greatswords.
Good list I think.
