Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just wondering what your thoughts were on this army list I was going to using.
Dark star cloak
Seal of Ghrond
extra hand weapon
spears and crossbows
CO knights 5
Bolt throwers 2
Black Guard 15
I know the black guard are expensive but they look so cool. Besides that, what would you do to improve it?
looking pritty good, try cutting down your scouts to 5-6. another thing, if you are intending on using black gaurd as a holding unit, up their unit size and kick out the spearmen. Spearmen have only ever worked for me in two units. use remaining points to get some dark riders and your second mage on horseback. Love the amount of shooting+magic in this list
Put shields on your warriors, even the ones with the xbows
It increases their effectiveness by a good deal and is quite inexpensive.
And it's generally thought that your should never pay for a 6+ save, so my suggestion would be that if you cut down the shades to a 5-6 man unit, take off thier armour as well.
If you're going to put your general out in the open on a pegasus, then give her a ward save of some kind.
Also, remember that chariots have a unit strength of 4, meaning they cant negate ranks for flanking and the like. So a char in it would make it US 5, making it much more effective.

The spearmen have shields I just forgot to put it on the list. Giving the sorceress a ward save seems like a waste because if she gets shot at by something decent it will probably kill her. I'll consider it though.
