Yes I know I am replying to my own post, but nobody else has replied yet. Besides, I should at least get to comment on my friends list to get the ball rolling. This after all isn't my list so I am technically not double-posting. You understand, right? No? Oh well....Here are my comments:

I think you could reduce your bray shaman to lvl 1, seeing as he will only have 4 power dice to work with, and most armies at 2000pts will have 4 or 5+ dispel and maybe scrolls too. You could then give him a dispel scroll. Also, he probably doesn't need the bray-staff unless he is in a unit, because if he gets charged by anything he will lose on combat res anyway....
You could also get rid of the Centigors and maybe even another minotaur from your unit of 4 so that it is only 3 (obviously) and that might just be enough for a unit of 3 Trolls! (if you have enough points left that is...) Or, you could take something else....just a suggestion....I just like Tolls, they look cool and seem pretty effective as a flanking unit (then you would have minotaurs and trolls flanking!). I just don't think the centigors would be particularly necessary, as you have 4 units of 5 warhounds, and trolls are harder hitting flankers anyway (I think?). You could reduce the unit of furies to 5. 10 seems alot, plus you will have mage/war machine units in the form of ambushing units! Seeing as furies don't stand up to shooting well (probably) they would be less of a target when only 5 strong rather than 10. So, with those points spare you could probably add a unit of 3 trolls....or even more minotaurs! However, one thing I just remembered...maybe the minotaurs are better in units of 4...they will probably end up charging units head-on (frenzy) and may need the additional attacks to not lose on combat res. Anyway, I have said my piece....anybody got anything else to add? I am not the best at giving advice seeing as I have never played as Beastmen before....

Well. I'm off.

I agree about the bray shaman. Magic just ain't happening with four power dice. You'd be better off forgetting about the phase. I'd still take the shaman for the dispel die, and give him a couple of scrolls.

I'd take out some warhounds (two units?) because you're probably just going to get annoyed trying to manouvre 4 wide units.around, and there are only so many oppertunities for cheap cavalry(ish) do actually do something in a game.

I also agree about taking less furies. Ten is too big to hide easily and they are going to get humped by shooting/magic.

With the spare points, I'm not sure what I'd do to be honest. Well, I'd add more minotaurs, but that's just because I think they're cool.
