Ok that makes sense to me--for some reason I thought Lords and Heroes shared their 25% points maximum.

This list looks much better! The trolls seem like a good suggestion, I will definitely get some of those for my army. However, I think I will stick with the 2 fanatics over the chariot--I just love how ridiculous they are, even if they don't end up being worth their points.

Are squig hoppers really not that great? I am a complete newbie to warhammer fantasy, but I really like the look of the models and the idea of a quasi-cavalry unit.

Looking at my original list it does seem I have far to much invested in my core units and thus, lacked any real 'hitting power'. The other good thing about this list is I already have all the spearmen/shortbows I'd need.

Thanks, I'll check it out.
