thnx for ur thoughts... and you are completly correct. The only reason i took silver helms and spearmen is that i have limited funds and they come in the battilion box.
i will definatly drop the command on archers and ill take some DPs in the future but for now, dropping the command on archers, take guardian pheonix on the nobel and bring an Eagle should be enough.
This army i hope will do better than my previouse army (warriors of chaos) and thank you again for your feedback.
First, please don't post individual points costs for units without upgrades. GW is on a crusade to take down anything or anyone who tries to use their copyright.
With that sorted,
It's better for your noble to take mundane armour instead, and the Enchanted Shield. Cheaper and better than the Armour of Caledor. If you find the points, you can use the Silver Helm models for Dragon Princes, as they will do so much better and won't really be a problem if your opponent is half intelligent. Also, you COULD save some points by dropping the number of Spearmen to 18, 6*3. A great unit both offensive and defensive. You could get the Warbanner on them for +1 combat res in addition.

its all well and good to have 3 ranks of spearmen, but if just 2 get shot then i lose a rank, hence the 4 ranks of 5.
if i went with sliver helms as dragon princes, would i need to convert them or do they look similar?
Also, are multiple warbanners sound investments over additional units? It's a guaranteed 1 CR at 20 points a piece vs an extra 1.33 elite infantry which may or may not inflict the 1 wound.
As he has given his Noble a Lance, he will hit with S6 on the charge and S4 anyway, so that's why its better and cheaper. On the Spearmen, he'll get a unit where every model can hit, which I find to be very psychological to the enemy. Anyone with common sense will think twice before charging a unit where every single model can hit, first....
I think I missed the Warbanner in his list. And he can't have two anyway, so you'll have to find something you can use the points on. Maybe use them to exhange SHs for DPs?

i cant have 2 banner in the same army? i can understand the "no 2 banners on same unit" but not 2 magic banners in the whole army.
back to the question about SHs -> DPs, will i need to do much, if any, converting?
On the DPs, that depends on your opponent, but I think you won't be needing much converting. If you have any bits from Dragon or Noble set, that will do.
You can't have the SAME magic banner in the same army. You can have Warbanner + Banner of Arcane Protection in the same ARMY, but not 2x Warbanner or 2x Banner of Arcane Protection. The only way to get two magic banners in a unit is placing a BSB in the unit, though I don't reccomend this unless the unit is mounted.

ooh... right... i get it now. silly me. in never took magic banners for chaos, and for that matter i never took a bsb either
