Very shooty.  I guess you need to break them with missile fire because you don't have much to break the enemy in combat, besides the knights.
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.

finding photographic evidense that Wiss smiles is going to be hard...

Even if you win, nobody will like you.

Beserkshrew! seems like we're abducting everyone from the GW boards...

Anyways this is just a wall of lead style army, if you play with your friends you'll prolly get called cheese and if you play at a tournie you'll get docked composition points

By the way, Mork, not only is this army extremely one-dimensional and cheesy, it's also very vulnerable to diggers, and the enemy will require only 300-400 points worth of good men to rip apart the whole lot.
Polypmphus: Yeah, it's the new layout. Not very popular.

This is hardly constructive comment.

If you have a valid reason for that argument then please put it forward with facts or analysis of his units. If not, please do not bother posting inane remarks.

your list is a bit, lets.. say "special" and you could do alot better with it if you would take away 2DS and replace them with the seal of destruction(so if u _ever_ meet a guy with a spell you dont like enough to risk several magic phases dispel scrolls just take this and hope for a good 4+ and you dont hafto worry about it anymore)

and on another guy, get the doomfire ring!! its good and very reliable since it will surely drop a dispel dice from your enemy or you'll get it free.

against flyers you should swap away another guys ds and take the orb of thunder (so you dont hafto worry about a dragon in your ranks causing terror and all)

and your Lord should get van horstmans speculum IF there would be a situation he doesnt wanto be in and he can swap stats with ugly flying daemon princes, strigois, or just about whatever that might get into cc with your lord.

It's an interesting list but as already stated by others here, you'll suffer badly when your opponent gets you into close combat.
I would recommend countering this by replacing at least one of the cannon with Halberdiers or Swordsman. This would allow you to deal with any enemy fliers that attack your artillary or to muster a counter charge.
