Great anvil with the phoenix guard. The thing I miss is a hammer to support them and flank attacking blocks. Or is that the role of the Silver Helms? Maybe an idea to drop some rares to create a swordmaster unit to support?

Btw: isn't 7 wide better for PG to gain more ranks to be steadfast in close combat? (where you WANT to have them) The rerolls already give them a huge amount of hits, I think a horde is overkill and maybe waste of the points.

I feel like putting all of your points into one large block of Phoenix Guard and then cramming two Mages into it is like asking FATE for a horrendously unlucky miscast to destroy your entire army on turn one....something about putting all of your Phoenix eggs in one basket sounds appropriate. I feel it might be better to leave your BSB in the PG and let your Loremaster roam with a unit of Silver Helms. He is a Big Boy and can handle himself in combat as long as you don't challenge an enemy general or something and the Phoenix Guard are more likely to need the BSB as your Silver Helms should be looking for flank or rear charges anyway. On the other hand you could always split your Phoenix Guard into two bunkers so they could at least support each other and get one Mage each because any sensible person will just avoid your giant PG unit like it has the plague and if it doesn't kill its points back its kind of a waste of points.
