I'm a fairly recent player to Warammer, I've had a few games (about 5) and I've noticed that I have too many elite troops and not enough core, so I decided to go for a new build with a fair amount of LSG, looking for some feedback and suggestions
LSG x 18
Full command, Shields
LSG x 18
Full command , Shields
Swordmasters x 14
Full command , banner of sorcery
Archmage goes with them
Elyrian Reavers x 5
Lion Chariot x 1
Archmage Level 3
Mage Level 2
This leaves me with 97 pts still to spend I was thinking of dropping something and getting a RBT but getting just 1 seems like a waste, also I'm quite clueless when it comes to the lords and heroes, not sure wherever I should have 1 good one or 2 not so good ones , this seems hard to balance with the 375 pts limit on the commanders.
Hope that I can get some advice here from you guys
You really want a Battle Standard Bearer, preferably one that can take punishment - I like to give mine the Helm of Fortune, Dragon Armour, Guardian Phoenix and a Great Weapon. This comes in at ~165 points.
You've also spent 143 points more on core than you need to (and I'm confused as to how you'd not have enough as long as it makes 25%!), so I'd go with one unit of 28 in a 7x4 formation with full command and a 25pt magic banner. That pretty much gives you the minimum core, and a spare 150ish points to spend on your BSB!
Also, upgrade your L3 mage and give him some toys. Book of Hoeth, the items that let you pick your spells, hell anything! The poor dude looks like a peasant
Reavers without bows are pretty useless imo, either tool them up or send them home.
Hey, I've revamped my army , dropped one mage and got a BSB instead, and also changed the ammount of LSG, still have a minor problem.
Mage Level 2
Helmet of Fortune
LSG x 28
Shields , Full command
Swordmasters x 14 (3 ranks of 6)
Full command, Banner of sorcery
White Lions x 14
Dragon Princes x 5
Sword of might for the champion
While this seems fine when it comes to the white lions there is an option:
Drop the lions and sword of might and get a lion chariot or
Drop them and get 20 spearmen
Or just keep them
So not entirely sure on what to do while as it is it seems fine to I'm looking for advice and opinions
double post... sorry

Thanks for the great answer! I've re visited my army , changed the mage to silver wand and fury ring , dropped the sword of might and the banner of sorcery and just had enough for 2 eagles which will work out nicely by supporting the rest. Yet again thanks for the answer
