Little rough list but nice enough, what' ya think?

intrepidjohnny: helblasters... weird

I like the Steel Banner in your Knights, but I think the War Banner is a better choice.  You may even want to take the Knight Unit down to 6 and use the almost 50 pts for more detachments.  A 5 man archer detachment would be nice.  You could either march block or screen one of your troop blocks from missile spells and shooting.  

I'm a big fan of the Seal of Destruction.  I like to try it on my enemy's best spell.  Makes them "gunshy" the next game.  Nice if you get rid of a Skaven Warlocks only spell!

Albrecht von Hinkel:
yep, no helblasters. I like more troops then lots of artillery. And yes, I love the Seal of Destruction (made my opponent lose the VC incantation spell BWAHAHA). If I had the time I would have had more march blockers (and another squad of pistoliers) but since the tournament is in less then 3 weeks I have to limit myself to just paint 5 crossbowmen, 14 militia, 1 wizard and 1 standard bearer... so... And yeah, I was thinking about the War Banner, and overall I think thats the best idea, cuz that extra D3 charge range hasn't helped me too much so...

Here goes what i used in my last game against a VC army, and what will probably be the core of my army in the august tournament.

- Elector Count Adolf Hermann, on foot, leading the spearmen, with:
Fullplate Armour, Sword of Power, Enchanted Shield, Holy Relic / 187pts
- Battle Wizard, Lvl 1, with 2 dispel scrolls. / 110 pts
- Battle Wizard, Lvl 1, with 2 dispel scrolls. / 110 pts
- Warrior Priest: Heavy Armour, Great Weapon, Barded Warhorse, Icon of Magnus, leading the Knights of the Blazing Sun  / 147 pts
- 26 Spearmen Count's Troops: standard bearer and musician (banner of griffon) / 247 pts
- 19 Swordsmen: full command. Detachment: Free Company - 9 / 203 pts
- 9 Knights of the Blazing Sun: inner circle, full command / 274 pts
- 8 Knights of the White Wolf: inner circle, full command, war banner (+1 CR) / 289 pts
- Great Cannon / 100 pts
- Great Cannon / 100 pts
- Hellblaster Volley Gun / 125 pts
- 10 Huntsmen: with marksman / 106 pts
Casting Pool: 4
Dispel Pool: 5

This gave me a victory by massacre, more than 2500 victory points, but i'm unsure about other armies. If i had enough models i would raise the number of swordsmen and place new detachments. My magic phase is totally defensive, the artillery is for support, i have no handgunners to give me more tactical options, like go offensive. What do you think?
