Your lists looks like a solid one. There are however a few impossibilities and a few improvements possible, IMHO.
First of all your warrior (with an a) priest and arch lector may not carry dispel scrolls.
So this should be changed. If you still want dispel scrolls you will have to take a scroll caddy wizard.
Secondly I would make sure your greatswords have a detachment as well. Maybe one of the halberdiers detachment from your swordsmen. By decreasing your hangunnners to 10 and flagellants to 20 (or 15) you could also save some points to give the greatswords and or the swordsmen a second (shooting) detachment.
Thirdly I would give the pistoliers a musician and the outrider a repeater pistol.
And finally the characters. Give yout BSB a barded warhorse, this will have no disadvantages, but will give him an additional +2 armour save. Keeping him alive. Also i think the AoMI is somewhat of a waste on an archlector on war alter. The alter gives you a +2 armour save. So combined with a shield and heavy armour this is already a 2+. Giving the archlector a Van Horstmann Speculum and a Shield of the Gorgon seems to be regular combo. I've never used it, but theoretically it is indeed very nice. The warrior priest in my greatswords usually has a greathammer, the AoMI and the Icon of Magnus. I hate it when a stubborn unit runs because of outnumbering and fear.
