What lore are you using for your mage? I'd take banners and musicians for your knights just fore added CR (as they aren't that good in killing) and mobility (swift reform is a powerful tool with a fast unit like knights), but those points are pretty hard to come by... Maybe try taking only a single, bigger unit?

Looks nice as it is though. Not that powerful, but the amount of units is great for the point level.

Most likely high magic. First time playing eighth ed. Just getting back into it.

Bolt throwers are often frowned on in this edition, but I can see them working pretty well at this point level. I like it.

Why is it that bolt throwers aren't used as much?

With 2wounds (2 crew) they are extremely vulnerable to all shooting (everything wounds on at least 6+ so even regular bows can and will bring a bolt thrower down), and the usual targets of the bolt throwers (monsters, cavalry) have faded out in favour of huge hordes of infantry.

In 1k however they can be very useful in thinning out the opposition and removing small units, while there won't be that many units going after your RBTs. Of course, 200 points could be spent elsewhere, and in larger games that usually means great eagles.

Great eagles are awesome. They might not earn you many points (but they can!), but they will win you the game (held a horde of khorne marauders 2 game turns once, halved a unit of wraiths in another game, destroyed a unit of flesh hounds, redirected a saurus horde, delayed countless enemy deathstars...) by just being in the right place.
