I would split your darkshards into smaller units - it's not too hard to keep the 1-2 remaining guys alive so they don't give up points, and more importantly you can shoot at multiple targets. Units of 10 and 12 work the best, but larger ones can work too. Other than that this looks pretty good, though if you can find the points for bolt throwers I would, they are quite good. I like the amount of cavalry you have. How are you running the spears? 5x5? If so, you only need 23 (2 characters are going there). Make sure to play defensively with this unit, it's your anvil - they don't get 3 ranks of fighting on the charge. Other than that, good luck, there are some good
you might want to check out...

Good luck mate, this is a fun looking list and I hope it plays well.

Alright heres my new one.. Thanks a lot for the video link and advice btw.

So I should be sticking the Supreme Sorc and Master in with the dreadspears? Should I shave anything off to put a magic banner or anything? Also, I'm really new to the game and pretty much gave everything Musicians and Standard bearers.. Do you see any units that do not necessarily need them?

Heres another version which one do you guys like better?

I'm kind of wary about putting the Sorc in my Black Guard because right now I'm reading in the rule book about miscasting and she could single handedly kill everybody in that unit lol.
