Hmmm.... its a hard one becuase with the Tiranoc Chariots and the White Lions, it looks like a really nice, unique list.
Your spearmen/archers base is really good, (perhaps drop one of the squads of archers if you need extra points - the bows are nice, but if you need points, 1 spearmen unit and 1 archers unit works fine!)8Y
Bolt Throwers and Eagles are perfect as they are. No need to change.8Y
I'm just a bit weary about just how many points are sunk into that Dragon Princes unit. You've got a fair amount of static combat resolution in those boys but you won't want to be hitting a unit on their own. You'll need to set up a flank charge in conjunction with your White Lions.
With your extra points, i'd start by buying two more White Lions and having a regiment of 7x2. Most opponents choose a 5-man frontage and are usually 20-25mm bases. By having seven in a front rank, you will get all of those all-important always strikes first hits in.
I've also seen White Lions used really effectively in units of seven with a Champion and Musician. With their ability to move through woods, and an effective 3+ save from shooting, will some thought and good movement, they'll be able to smash into a flank or front without loss getting there. Maybe try that.
Hope this helps!

Quannum, funkin' out in every way. Since 1987.
I agree with Quannum, one unit of Archers is good. Most likely a typo but the unit of 9 Archers are required to be at least unit strenght 10.
With the extra you can add to your spear unit and you may want to think about the Banner of Sorcery if you are going to uses A level 4 & a level 2 Mage.
