    okay well wfirst: elcome to Warhammer and the Asur my friend!

    about you're lists:
    i like a foot slogging prince with support so neither list is my thing, though for you're first try you have done rather well IMHO.

    list 1:

    armour off Caldeor can be replaced with dragon armour, and shield more easily. The dragon will confer a bonus to you're armoursave aswell so that's saving points. Maybe give him the starlance instead of a normal one.

    Try and take a second mage with some magical defense, maybe with some dispell scrolls.

    seaguard are not too great generally speaking.
    Use a big (minimum of 20) unit of spearmen and support them with those 10 archers.


    beef up the phoenix guards. If something reaches combat with them, you will loose them and you're mage very fast. (make them 15+, preferebly 20)

    Wite lions, drop the biting blade on champion, his Great Weapon hits harder then the biting blade and then beef up the unit. (make them 10+)

    shadow warriors are good.

    Dragon Princes. Make one unit of 6 and use the other ones points to beef up the infantry. Give the surviving one the banner off Ellriyon.


    Good. The Eagle is good as are the RBT's.


    List 2:

    Not bad, i like this one above the first one.

    Most of the comments from above count here aswell though i would suggest adding a commander for some killing power.
    Give the archmage the jewel of dusk, not the wand. 4 spells is a lot as it is and more power dice are always handy.

    so yes here again:

    -drop the seaguard.
    -boost the white lions and phoenix guard
    -boost one unit of princes and drop the other.

    for the rest the list looks good.

    I hope it helps, if not keep asking
