- So, he'd have a 4+ reroll armor with a 4+ ward? Not sure he'll survive too long. If you want a foot lord, go ahead, but I've always had better luck mounting them.

mage w/level 2, silver wand

- I'd recommend some Dispell scrolls. HE have them cheaper, and they're handy in a pinch.

10 Archers

10 Archers

- IMO, HE archers are seriously overpriced. Their S3 shooting is just pathetic against anything in full armor or is tough, or heaven forbid, both.

16 Spearmen, full command

- Not bad. I usually field 2 blocks of 15 Spears, as they are your cheapest unit (sadly)

8 Silver Helms, full equipment, full command

- I'd drop this to 5 and try to squeeze another block in. (Or expand it to 10 so you at least have a rank bonus)

8 Ellyrion Reavers, bows, full command

- Reavers are very expensive for what they do. I'd flat out drop them.

15 Swordmasters of Hoeth, full command

- Good.

2 Repeater Bolt Throwers

- Also good.

- There are a couple things that I'd look at adding, mostly in the magical doohickey stuff.
-Warbanner - is cheap and very nice for what it can do.
- Battle Banner - requires a BSB, but makes a very nice hammer. Kinda pricey, but adds a TON of CR.
- Helm of Fortune - Loses the 4+ ward of the Vambraces, but adds +1 armor. I tend to favor this for the point reduction.
