    Although i'm not a high elf player i do have som suggestions. Hope it'll help!
    you should really consider DP's. you could swap the SH's for the DP's.
    take off 5 swordmasters of your block of 15. they really do not need that extra rank as they really will slice anything to pieces. they do not need that +1 rank bonus. take either 3 or 6 extra spearmen/elves ranking the unit 3 by 6 or 3 by 7. this will give you a stunning 18/21 attacks on the turn you are charged, which should make it almost impossible to break the first turn. you may also want to consider taking a BSB in your army.

    Totally agree with JJB, you need more spearmen, they really need all the static combat resolution they can get now, so 20 or 24 is what I normally aim for. Could also give them the Warbanner.

    I think that I would drop 1 swordmaster in the unit of 15 to make it 14 (2x7), I think htat I would also switch the Silver Helms out for Dragon Princes, but that is up to you.

    ring of Corin you realize that this is one use only, right? Unless you're playing against opponents who run little to no magic, you don't really have enough power dice to run 2 level 2's. I'd grab the ring of fury and the banner of sorcery and dish the scroll to your other mage, then at least you'd have a chance for some magical power
    dispel scroll

    Mage: 165
    lvl 2
    seerstaff of Saphery

    10 Archers

    15 spearmen: 160 no point in full command unless you're going to fill out the ranks as mentioned.
    full com.

    10 silver helms: 270
    shieldsnever run cavalry in blocks of 10. It makes caring people cry. Use blocks of 5-6. Get a banner, only if they can support one (silver helms can't support a banner)
    full com.

    15 swordmasters: 255 banner of sorcery here maybe?
    full com.

    10 swordmasters: 195drop the command except for the champion. Maybe switch some guys over to the other unit to keep your numbers up (psst. these guys die easy)
    full com.

    I'd say you really need an eagle otherwise your bolt throwers will be killed early in the game and be wasted.

    It looks good, I think that I would change the 12 spears into 10 Seagaurd with shields.

    This will support you army better, 12 spears are useless IMO.

    FIRST THING DONT POST POINTS ON THE FORUMS ITS AGAINST THE RULES

    As for the list couple of things

    If you are only inc. the 12 Spears to meet the 2+ core requirement then drop them and take another 10 Archers instead. Spears in anything less than 20 is a waste of time

    Dragon Princes should be OK with 5 models and without Command Group.

    If you give DP Command Group give them the Banner of Ellyrion as they will benefit more from it.

    I find smaller blocks of Swordmasters far better run them in groups of 8 with a BladeLord but nothing else.

    Think you need something else to boost your numbers as the SM will get shot to shreds and with 5+ AS will not last long so you need other units to screen them behind, i.e., like a big unit of Spears or cavalry.

    If you can get an Amulet of Light in their somewhere so a unit has magical attacks to counter etheral units.

    Posting totals of units with upgrades is OK, as long as no specific cost is posted.

    lance star dragons are pricey, and generally not worth it

    Mage: 175
    lvl 2
    ring of Corin
    dispel scroll good, ring is a good choice for turns when opponent is out of dispel dice

    Mage: 165
    lvl 2
    seerstaff of Saphery add a scroll here if you can, no reason not to

    10 Archers

    15 spearmen: 160
    full com. why? if filling a core, use more archers. if looking for an anvil, use more spearmen, drop the champ and make room for a BSB in your army. as it stands this unit accomplishes nothing

    10 silver helms: 270
    shields
    full com. bleh, silver helms are plain baaaad. use dragon princes, put banner of ellyrion here if you like it a lot, and drop some... only 5-6 here

    15 swordmasters: 255
    full com.

    10 swordmasters: 195
    full com.
    banner of ellyrion
    drop one swordmaster from these 25 to make 24... 2 units of 12, 6 front. Drop the champs unless you want to use magic items, 1 more attack isn't worth the points. Amulet of light is a good magic item for SMs. Put a banner of sorcery in one of these

    3 bolt throwers

    Ranged + heroes is 3/5 of your army. This is a pretty big percentage, leaving you very lacking in CC. I'd personally revamp the whole list, dropping out the dragon... you just don't have enought meat where it counts.

    Hope I was helpful. Good luck.
