I think you may have a problem defending your flanks as you have a lot of stuff to make up the center of your army but only 1 taking a flank. Usually you want at least another unit that is mobile enough to protect your other flank. I would suggest taking out a unit of Swordsmen + the Detachments for another unit of Knights. With the extra points. I would make one of the units Knights of the Inner Circle and perhaps buy another wizard if you can, a Lvl 2 with minimal gear. That way you are more suited and protected in the magic phase.

Little or no protection for your EC & I certainly wouldn't fly him around on a Pegasus, that is a Captain's job.

War Banner better than steel banner

Drop detachments to 8 you will find 10 to be unweildy

Little or nothing in the way of magic. Griffon Banner?

Personally would turn Halberdiers into a Regiment & split handgunners (some) into detachments

Need some light cavalry/skirmishers against Lizzies. Make you cavalry I/C

Get a mortar very useful vs Skirmishing units due to size of template

Surely some light cavalry...pistoliers is a must IMHO...

Thanks for all the advice. Made as many of the suggested changes that I could. Any more comments would be appreciated.
