I am gonna pipe up and say, ELM sucks squirrel testicles. I would go 5 on several units and get that Lord up into a knight. That lord is gonna be the fat kid without a bike and everyone else has a ride to the party. At best the dude is covering 12 inches in a turn, and I am betting that you are banking on him being a melee lynchpin. Also knights have double the wounds, better for your warlord not to mention they are JMC, and have a nice First Blood standard load out.
Also the spiritseer council is pretty dang tight.
