Seems pretty well balanced. I guess your looking to deal a lot of magical damage. Personally, id drop the chariot and bulk up the spearmen, but thats just my belief in core h2h infantry.
Generally looks good though.

i must admit at first the chariot wasn't in the list, and i had more infantry, but i decided i wanted a bit of variety in there as in theory i could be playing as many as 7 games with it.

Yeah, its just my personal preference. It'll mean your fast section will hit a lot harder, but at the same time, weakens your infantry core a bit.

An interesting tactic ive seen used with is to use them as an intercepter unit to block elite infantry, but that was with goblin chariots, which are more disposable.

Personally, i think chariots are disruptive to face, especially for an infantry heavy force, coz they hit, and if the infantry hold, they often flee the next round of combat due to ranks and standard etc. I never catch them, (esp with dwarfs) and so they rally and hit my stunties again :(

But then, they never break them, or cause many casualties, so again, i remain undecided about whether they are very effective or not.

im a big fan of chariots, and have often used them in my highelves and my orc and goblin forces. With the new highelf book i'm keen to try out the lion chariot. Due to its lions and the two crew armed with great weapons, it will be kicking out 6 str 5 attacks even in rounds after its charged, so unlike other chariots isn't so much of a one shot deal. However you need to be careful with them and know whe its best to charge and when to hold them back, when they need support and when to go it alone. If i'm honest i'd almost definately be better with 2 standard chariots, and i know in the tournament the 3 best players have all taylored there list to face me so for example the dwarf player has str7 bolt throwers. I doubt the chriot will last that long in most games but heh, the model is cool and Its kinda cool to be the guy everyones worried about

I don't know if this is too late, but I would suggest using some sea guard in place of basic spearmen. This will reduce their numbers, but will give you more shots which could kill the enemy before you get to H2H.
