Saga Age of Magic: The Great Kingdom "Camulod"

My second army for Age of Magic is for the Great Kingdom Camulod loosely based on a series of books by Jack Whyte  Its the Arthur Legend reimagined with Camelot as a final bastion of Rome (not the Real Roman Empire but its ideal).  Since this is an army based on the Knights of the round table its going to be hero heavy.

I haven't settled on a warlord yet but I have several option including the one above that should work well.
I'll be using Galahad from Footsore miniatures with his dragon banner as my captain.  He'd be a great option for a warlord too.
Tristain and Gawain will be my Paladins both are Footsore miniatures
Hearthguard for now I'll use Norman cavalry until I get something more Arthurian.  Right now I'm thinking a unit of mount troops and and on of infantry probably about 6 men each.
 Warriors my late Romans with spears and swords will form the back bone of my force. I'm spending 3 point here thought one of those point is being traded in for the paladins
Levies normally I keep levies to a minimum but the Great Kingdom's battle board has several shooting enhancements and only the levies(in the normal list) can shoot. So I am spending 2 points on archer. I'll trading in  6 of them to get my Captain but also because I have 16 archer so with 18 levies left over I can split them into two groups of 8 archers and an "officer" its probably not an optimal set up but it should work.  This is my low magic army.  I could swap out something to add Merlin or a Priest with "divine magic" to it but I think this will do well for now.
