This will be my first game in Fantasy. I don't know what lore to take yet with my wizard. I was thinking Metal. Also, the Arch Lector will be the General of the army. Let me know what you think!

Hmmm. You can't take two holy relics. Metal is a good lore for a L2 Mage, although if I'm taking metal, I just go for L1 and take the signature spell (in fact, I would definitely take two L1s with the signature spell before I'd take a L2... And the points spent on the second holy relic make that possible...
I second the plan to take a TGM instead of a general. My recipe is plate, shield, talend (he's neither your general, a wizard lord, nor your BSB, so no 4+) and sword of sigismund for a real badass.
With only one war machine, the engineer is an expensive waste of points! Take a second mortar instead, I implore you.
30 swordsmen is a little sub-par for 2k points, I'd go for 40. Similarly, the greatswords are barely big enough, I'd be much happier with 27 plus a bsb for 7x4. The knight units are the perfect size for a flank charge into an already frontally engaged enemy unit. The problem is that you have two of them, and only two infantry blocks, so you're not going to get many opportunities to do so... Also, core knights with lances are a bit underwhelming. Seriously, they're hard to kill, sure. But are they four times as hard to kill as a swordsman? And that many points for two S3 attacks after the charge? Preposterous! I feel like you're taking them to fill core requirements. You'd be much better served with a unit of flaggies for the same price, or even halberdiers or more swordsmen.

Very good advice. Thank you. What about getting rid of the Knightly Orders and replacing them with units of Handgunners and Crossbows? I don't have another cannon/mortar model, and I'm really trying to use what models I do have.
These are the models I have:
59 state troops(commands available x3)
18 handgunners (command available x1)
20 crossbowmen(command available x2)
20 greatswords(command available x2)
24 knighly orders(command available x3)
1 cannon or mortar
1 general on barded warhorse
I'm going to convert a BSB and maybe an Engineer.
