    Greenskins have no access to any flaming attacks whatsoever, so you can switch the Dragon Armour to normal Heavy Armour and save a few points.

    Also, I'd drop the Sword of Might on the Drakemaster, and give some nice protective thingy to him instead.
    Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
    NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
    Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
    Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD

    Spearmen can only hold a banner of upto 25pts in value, so the banner of sorcery is too expensive for them. I suggest switching the swordmasters and spearmens banners around.

    I hope this helps

    Would also recommend a larger Swordmaster unit. With the strike first ability and str 5 they should cut down a lot of them greenskins!

    Swordmasters don't strike first, they do however have a high Int and this their chances of doing so are increased. But it is not a definate.

    Against most greenies it is. Only things slower than Common Orcs are Saurus Warriors, Zombies and non-Swordmaster GW wielders.

    Ok, due to models, I have to drop the 2 Great Eagles. I'm thinking of adding another chariot... I'm also thinking of beefing up the Swordmasters to 23, rather than 13.

    Change the Dragon Armor to Heavy Armor on your charactors. Drop one Silver Helm unit and reduce the second unit to 5 knights w/Champion & Musician.

    Add a second Chariot, two more Dragon Princes, three more Swordmasters and a unit of 5 Ellyrian Reavers w/bows and a Musician.

    Then as Gingerninja suggest switch your banners with Swordmasters and Spearelves.

    I hope this helps.
