Hey, heres some basic tips and thoughts about your army:
*Your bray shaman does not need 2 scrolls, In most 1250 games, ppl have 2 casters max which means 6 power dice. You with just your bray have 3 despell and 1 scroll incase a good spell gets off. Most of the time, people will fail lower point magic games because using 2 dice wont hit the good spells.
*Unless ur planning to ambush the gor squad, i would run them 15 man tops, 20 is way to big unless like i said, you plan to ambush them. In a 1250pt game i would avoid using ambush unless your playing a heavy shooting army because it will take some time for your guys to get on, and if they do they might be in bad spot.
*I dont get what you mean "Warbanner" in Bestigors, they can only take a standard banner unless there is a hero present and your guy is not equip with a banner. Really not a fan of full commanding Beasmen, only do this if you Wargor is present in the squad because beast are th biggest chickens in Fantasy.
*Steel claws on your hero required 2 hands and stated by the rulebook you must use your magic weapons above anything else, so the shield upgrade is a waste of points since he cannot use it ever.
*Maybe give your minotaurs a standard since they will be doing most of the smashing so make sure they win combats, Frenzy stacks = win!!!

Yeah thanks for the tip.
Abot the scrolls, my previous army was wood elves and I used 2 scrolls all the time and i needed them. Thats why i thought i probably need them here. Well, I guess that wood elves are much more vulnerable to magic so yeah...

About the Warbanner, it is a magical banner in the common magic items section.(It gives +1 to combat res) A bestigor standard bearer can take a magic banner up to 50pts.
