    All of that archery is great, but what happens to your soft archer units when the enemy does reach your lines, (trust me they will) your archer units will die and he'll casualy roll up your flanks wiping out the rest of your army. My advice would be to drop some of the archers and get some cc troops, invest in some eagles as march inhibitars, or some light cav to flank charge and also march inhibit.

    In my opinion, for what it is worth, I would drop 6 archers from both units and the sea guard all together.

    For the points, get 2 units of reavers, about 5 models each, by splitting up the unit you've already got, and 2 good size units of spearmen, about 16 in each. This will give your archer army some protection from close combat, while still keeping them shooting.

    Hope that helps

    With a few tweaks this list would be great. Here's what I'd do:

    - Drop the sea guards (too expensive - and the don't have longbows, just normal bows).
    - Make your archer units 10-12 each and make 4 units with the spare points, drop the light armour on all of them (a 6+ save is not worth much IMO).
    - Make the reavers 2 units of 5-6 with only musicians only - full command won't be of too much banefit as they're ideally flankers.
    - Make sure that you take high magic for your mage and choose curse of arrow attraction to max out your on target shots and wipe out one enemy unit at a time.
    - If you have another 100 pts left over (unlikely) another RBT or 2 eagles wouldn't go astray either.

    Hope that these suggestions help!
