    another eagle would work great to march block, warmachine hunt or redirect attacks.
    I think you should split up the dragon princes (8 is to many to use effectively) 6 in a row is the most I would do.
    You could use another silver helm unit and even add another hero. Or build another spearman unit. The other thing that can be useful (as long as it's not overdone) is purchase some magic banners and such to make your mages or fighting units more effective.

    Its not a bad army, with the spare points take another egale as suggested, and give the silver helms shields, heavy armour and full command if you havent already. Spear elves need fc, as do the dragon princes, and give them the banner of sorcery, finally, id advise giving the commander a horse (for extra armour) and stubborn and sticking him in the spearelves which will easily be able to hold the flank if you give them that immune to fear banner, as they will go in the centre and everything else will go on either its left or right.

    Hope it helps, it is a nice army, but you NEED commands, for musicians if nothing else.

    NO!! don't use a prince like this. He's less than stellar at combat, and there's no way he's going to stand up in a fight without help. Better to spend these points on a Mage Lord.

    wrong again my friend. This is good, but if you are going to use a mage, do not give him that ring. Seer, Channeler, Silver Wand. This will make him essentially a LVl 3 mage that gets to pick his spells instead of rolling them. This is far more powerful. Matched with a higher level mage, this mage will put you on the path to ruling the magic phase.
    Also, you'll want to add that commander in here. As you have an infatry force, you'll likely be trying to mantain a phalanx. Make your commander stubborn with the Lion Gaurd honor. Then heavy armor, and enchanted shield. That'll give him a 3+ save. Good enough for a commander on foot with a unit around him.

    Drop the 10 archers, add a standard bearer and musician to the rest. Use 'First Among Equals' to give the spearmen the War Banner. Add 5 elves to this unit so that they are in 5 ranks of 6. This will make the extremely useful in close combat. Frontage 6 maximizes attacks.
    I like the 6 Silver Helms. But they do need shields, and barding. This will rate them amongst the best Heavy Cavalry in the game. Adding a second unit of these riders would not be a bad idea either.

    I like this section too. However, you can should either add two Dragon Princes, or drop two dragon princes. In addition, give them a full command. Then they can have the Banner of Ellyrion, to make them alot more manueverable, and your champion can have the Tome of Battle. This item is excellent if you want to rush forward with your cavalry, or if you want to place your knights in the center to prepare a counter charge. Units near the unit with the Tome will get a leadership bonus.

    I like the two RBTs, but just like you can get 2RBTs for one choice, you can also get 2Eagles, and you should.

    I like your list, it's pretty standard for an infantry-elf list. You seem to lean towards cavalry. Perhaps later you can talk to me when you want to go exlusive
