I have played the battle banner alot in phoenix guards and it works ok, i am about to run a similer list but i am gonna try to get a noble on steed to run with dragon princes, the battle banner would be much more effective with 3d6 to pursue+better armour and magic heavy could prob get a sheild of saph on them, and that untouchable mage thing is ok but i dont think its worth the points, especially if your putting him in a unit, i was debating putting a book of heoth with mine, just my thoughts based of my exp.
I guess that the untouchable mage thing is based on new chaos mortals characters, probably a good bet that you will face some of them at a tournament, will protect you BSB from challenges really well too.
Other than that I really don't think that cheesy is the right way to describe this list.
The changes I would make are...
Lose the banner on the sword masters and I would take 10 Archers (no command) over 15 spearmen in most cases, with the pts saved get an eagle and either Reavers or Shadow Warriors to March Block. Then your opponent has to walk into your 38+ shots and magic phase for at least 3 turns. Your combat does suffer somewhat as a result but if you only fight what you have too you should be ok.
thanks for the advice the main reason i have made the mage untouchable is because i have recently been playing dark elves w/shadowblade(assassin special character) and chaos. I have found that my characters have died too easily so i have made this mage to accept chalanges and keep enemy characters from doing anything. It also will not die easily from magic since it is in a unit of pheonix guard. I will edit my army list to drop the banner from swordsmasters and drop spearmen for archers, great eagle and shadow warriors if I can find he points
if you want cheesy replace the archmage with teclis. With teclis in the army hes really the only mage youll need thanks to his built in book of hoeth, once your opponent finds out your playing teclis he will dispell the other mages spells because teclis will get through everytime hopefully (ive had a couple times where i didnt get a double) so its kinda a waste of points so swap your mage characters for nobles.
2x 10 archers
4 bolt throwers
20 phoenix guard
banner of sorcery
I dont bother putting hvy armor on the nobles because the 5+ would get negated anyways. Skeinsliver should get you 1st turn with hopefully a +2 on your roll and banner of sorcery gives teclis an extra d3 power dice (so total of 2d3 with his ability) to work with so he can use 5 dice to cast and get that double, that should be roughly about 1800 right there so just fill in the blanks lol.

seems to be a good list
but its looks like its very shooty and heavy on magic
and like said above
if u want to be cheesy, use teclis
he is worth it
