Looks quite interesting. I would probably split up the archers into even smaller units - 4*10 gives you lots of drops. I don't think they need musicians. They're certainly good for rallying outside of the Ld bubbles but hey, they're just archers. That buys you some kind of weapon for the Captasus. A simple lance is the least he should carry. A ward for the AL would be really good while the additional weapon is kind of meh. At least it's cheap.

ahh thanks Solar, you're right about the weapon. I actually had a lance calculated in the points already I just forgot to write it. Oops! It's edited now. The only other change I made was giving the Arch Lector the armour of meteroic iron instead of the armour of silvered steel and luckstone. I like the archer units in bigger squads, make my light council feel a bit safer. Thanks again!

Good thinking. You're probably going to play around with the list anyways. In my experience, I always fiddle and tweak or get bored with the odd unit. :) I see the utility of a bigger bunker but you could for example get a unit of 20 for the L4, one of 10 for both hero wizards and 2*5 detachments to anything to run interference.
