A balanced list noting really to change except split the handgunners into 2 detachments for the greatswords. Stand and shoot and greatswords can really hurt.

Another way to boost this list is if you drop both your characters and replace them with a warriorpriest. It gives hatred to your GS (really really really good!) and has almost the same offensive/defensive magic as your mage. This could save some points for more swordsmen (like 5-10 to each company) or perhaps another group of handgunners/bowmen wich is very good.

But overall this list loock rather solid so no real reason to change it.

Thanks, i ll do the detachment, but i thought its bad to not have a spell-caster in an army except for Dwarfs?

Wps can cast spells. And they are rather good too and youd dont have to worry about miscast either. Only drawback is that the spells are only PL4. But if you only have a lvl2 mage youll probably have approx the same chanse to get som spells off anyway.

Priest added, i still kinda want to keep the captain because he looks cool and I was going for a more militaristic theme. (like a Reiksland regiment.)
I also promoted the knights to Inner circle.

I'd drop the greatswords to 14 (the character will make it a 5*3 formation), and use the 10 points to put a musician with the cavalry (+8). It leaves you at 996 points. Maybe add a shield to the warrior priest to help protect him while marching, or find 2 points somewhere and give the captain a pistol.

But the priest guy has 1+ save already and the Empire book says it cannot be improve further.
Hard to find that two points...
and just to have fun, i built a 2000 pt list too, which would be complete in a far distance future...

Change the places of priest and captain. Hatred it's better on IC knights that have more chances of get the charge and hit stronger. Also change the items and try to give the priest a cheap magic weapon (like sword of might +1ST)

Warrior Priest- Heavy Armour, shield, Barded warhorse, Sword of Might-125 (join Knights)
