My first attempt at Warmaster, this is what I have:

4 units of Spearmen

4 units of archers

3 units of silver helms

1 unit of reavers

3 units of bolt throwers

What do I need to add? take away?

Probably the best thing to do is get hold of the WM Army Lists which are available for free (http://www.specialist-games.com/warmaster/rulebook.asp) on the web, along with the rules themselves:

You've got about 1,320 points of High Elves there.

As you'll see from the minimum and maximum quotas in the High Elves army list, you've got too many bolt-throwers (only one allowed per 1,000 points). You'll need a general (at least) to make a "legal" list and you'll probably want more characters (hero, wizard, etc) as well.

Looks ok for starters, what points total are you aiming for?

Whatever I have or a even number that I can easily get to by adding a unit or two.
