    Hello Kiwi,

    Well, this is certainly an interesting list. I have a few reservations though. They are as follows:

    1) An Archmage on a dragon is problematic. It makes him a target for close combat, which he is ill suited for. At least with the dragon mage you can up his combat potential. You could do this with the archmage too, depending on lore, but it appears you want to use him as a caster.

    2) Even considering the mage being kept on the dragon, you have a lot of points wasted on him. The Vambraces are a waste of points as it is only a slightly better save than the guardian phoenix. I would exchange these items. I would also drop the seerstaff for a silver wand, as it gives him 5 out of the 6 spells for 20 less points. I would then give him a dispel scroll and the ring of fury instead of the sword of might.

    3) With these changes implemented you should have a few points spare for changing a unit of reavers for 2 great eagles.

    Just my thoughts
