A couple of things to consider with this list. First of all, you're spending a lot of points on characters and magic and not all of it is going to be useful. Right now your army puts out 4pd and 1 bound, a level 1 wizard can't use that many dice. Upgrade him to lvl 2 or ditch the jewel of dusk. Even with 3pd you can't use them all every turn.

Your spearmen regiments are to small to stand up to much in combat. High elf infantry is expensive, but start out with at least a full block of 20 with full command. 19 works if you plan to stick a character in it. As is stands right now you are only getting +3CR (w/standard) assuming a character in each unit. If you have a single casualty it drops down to 2. Either drop one and make the other 20+ or scrap something else to make the points avaliable.

Give your silverhelms heavy armor and shields, it makes them survive that squishy T3 they're cursed with. And typically a war banner will be better for the silver helms than the banner of ellyrion. Any extra CR makes breaking foes on the charge just that much easier.

the silver helms come with full gear
and the banner of elliriyon allows me to go through trees
so i can kill scouts and flank

I think your army is quite well balanced, however my preference with slight changes would be to take away the great eagle and shadow warriors and put in a bolt thrower to help whittle down your opponents along with your archers for your spearmen and silver helms to finish them off . Also I'd suggest if possible to have a level 2 instead of lvl 1. But other than that, your army seems fine to me.

Eagles are amazing for their points, i'd consider 2 for your army. But it seems you wont be able to afford it. The mage NEEDS to be lvl 2 otherwise all his items are pointless, so upgrade there for 35 points. I'd drop the archers (as yours seems to be a infantry army), banner of El and the musician from the spearelves, with these points boost both Spearelf units to 19 each.

p.s. Eagles/Shadow warriors.... whichever is in better (more chaos on their side)/worse (are useless to you) positions to do so
