First off, you are not allowed to post points totals here, please edit those out.As to comments on the list:

The wizards on horse is a bad choice. You stick them in with the knights and they will be killed on the first round of combat leaving you with no magic, and down on points.

Other than yojr demigryfs, your units are all too small. State troops need a bare minimum of 35 to survive and achieve anything, preferably 40. So the halberds are close, but 20 swords are useless.

Both of your knight units could act as antichaff, but with only 5 models also won't win you any battles either. And since i can only assjme one would have your wizards you wouldn't want it in battle anyways.
