Thankyou you both for your input, i like the look of the LSG, but i might use them as normal spearelves and go for a 'big' infantry block say 38 strong (might put a BSB and mage in here) the 2 units of swordmaster's (16 strong 8 wide 2 deep you reckon?)
i fancy getting a 2nd mage, and going for life and death perhaps, i like the look of the spells that seem alot of fun ;)
Great Eagles sounds amazing and cheap too, putting them on warmachine duty, and i want to use the shadow warriors, they sound intimidating being skirmishers and having hatred, especially armed with bows.
White Lions are my favorite unit in the army, want to get a big unit of them and stick Korhil in with them as he looks like a Beast in combat.
Tactics wise, guess i need to learn by trial and error on how to set them up, i look forward to the challenge :D
