Your list appears to be over by 1 point at 2001.

Those Minotaurs don't need great weapons. You have a 400 point unit of bestigor that already have great weapons. They fill the role of high strength attacks in your army and it's doubtful that you're really going to need two units that have strength 6+, especially with a death sorcerer to snipe monsters. Save the points and just have them with nothing or extra hand weapons.

Your heroes seriously lack in mundane equipment. Get your shamans additional handweapons. Why the heck doesn't your BSB have a shield, let alone an enchanted shield? Since you're going to put your heroes in units anyway, you can probably lose 2-3 gor to find the points for this change.

Buy those ungor raiders a musician. II'd be tempted to get the Minotaurs one as well.

Agree with the mundane equipment for the characters. While the BSB cannot take the enchanted shield with a magic banner, he can take the gnarled hide gift. When combined with Heavy Armour and a shield this would give him a solid 2+ save.

It would also be useful to know how you intend to deploy your 30 man units, and where your characters intend to go. The Bestigor are one of the only units in the Beastman army who can take a magical banner, and I would suggest that you make use of this, even just the BoEF for help with regen.

The only change i was thinking was making the Minotaurs into Spawn. The Great bray and bsb will go into gor units and the lvl1 will end up in the bestigor I think again help is needed.

Ideally you want both your BSB and GBS in the same unit, so your whole army can benefit from Ld 9. Alternatively, you could put the GBS in the unit of Bestigor and give them the standard of discipline. This would free up your BSB to take a different magic banner - the Beast banner is very good on a large unit of Gor, for example.

If you were going to do this, I would consolidate the gor into a unit of about 50 and possibly give the GBS fencers blades and Jagged dagger instead of his current equipment.

You could trade out the minotaur for 2x spawn and then bump the razorgor units up to 2 each.
