The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

Personally I would stick vambraces on the prince and add a mundane lance with amulet of light. The starlance is very expensive but I do understand why you like it. The thing is, the dragon is S7 so you don't really need it.

I would also stick guardian on the dragon mage and silver wand. I personally don't see too much of a need for scrolls. The sea guard would go out in favour of archers and I'd load up on dragon princes for speed.

Those are my thoughts.

The idear was that the sea guard and the bolt throwers to concentrate on to units, to weeken them so the white lions and a star dragon could finish them off. The star dragon and the dragon mage are there to go a head and to smash units in the rear. I can not have any more mages because I have used up the hero slots. I had the dispel scrolls because the dragon mage only give me +1 dispel dice and stops me from having +1 to dispel.

it seems a waste of the dragon mage (or dragon), acting as a scroll caddy could lead to using him to conservativly as with only one spell caster flaming sword of rhuin is unlikey to be successful.

I second this. By turn 2 you will be in combat so I do not see any need for scrolls. If you make him level 2 and give him silver wand and guardian phoenix, you'll have a (relatively) solid combat/spell platform.

If you want a conservative magic defence then I suggest you just go with a simple scroll caddy.

I agree with the people who are telling you to drop the scrolls, if spells are hurting you badly you can always go hunt down the mages.

To that end I'd also suggest dropping a Bolt thrower for two Eagles, they can march block and distract and hunt warmachines etc while the Dragons wreak havok, as such tasks are a waste of a Dragons time, its also useful to have something expendable to get the enemy to expose flanks etc.
