I would consider taking the Empire Knight General over the one you have chosen. he bestows good things on any knight unit that he joins.

The BSB cannot take any magic items other than a magical banner.

I like the flavor of your army and you will be winning games on generalship not on min'maxing a list. Kudos to you!!

1. i need the EG for the warbanner to the spearmen.

2. unless its bin changed in the NEB the BSB can take either a banner or magic item. if its changed then ill have 50 points more to spend :)

3. thanx alot!

BSB may take whatever magic items he likes. But if he has a magic banner he can't have any magic items (even if its only 10pts),.

I would say to put the BSB with the War banner unit. Then the opponent will expect it to be a tougher nut to crack thus increasing the potential of the rod to spoil their plans...

Army looks fine.

IF he takes a magic banner, he may take no other magic items. Read that one a little more carefully :D
