How do you think the list will do against the more powerful lists out there?
So far I have played vamps, lizards, and dwarves. Crushed them all.

Might consider taking seaguard instead of spearmen (if they are core?). Not too much shooting but I imagine you don't care much about that?
How have you done against a solid shooting list?

You should try playing against my tombking list, would be fun and we'd both learn a lot I think.

Only thing I really would add is making those spearmen 20+ or taking units of 10 bows.

you can drop the white lions with nothing and upgrade a the 15 to lorthern. drop the 10 unit of sperar men this is for general armys

for combat res extra give the bbs the battle banner and drop the magic items you gave him. the battle is hated by people who play against me think about it 6d extra combat res in every combat that is anti combat

Drop the unit of 10 spears? :p
How about he keeps them for purposes of, let's say, having a legal list? Personally I don't see the reason of nog having a block of 20+ spearmen. If 3 big blocks are too expensive, go for 3x10 archers or 1x20 spears and 2x10 archers. No reason to upgrade undermanned spearmen to lothern.

run units of 20 lorthern sea guard.
drop one white lion unit
drop champions { never take}
use the bbs and give it the battle banner {d6 combat res}
give the swords some comand and add archers
all you need is 3 bolt throwers one on each side then one in the middle

Why lothern sea guard? When you take a unit of 20 spearmen and a unit of 10 archers, you have 10 30" shots instead of 5 24" shots, about the same points, you have your spear unit that fights the same way the searguard does, while you have 10 extra men that can keep shooting. If the spearmen fail withstanding a charge, they will cost you less than when the seaguard does.

35 pts, enchanted item "pendant of vengeance"
If a dwarf strikes a rune, and it's a succes, he has to roll it again. Also, if he fails and has to roll the Failed chart, he hast to take -1 on his roll.

As a dwarf player, I think this is ridiculous. Dwarfs have it hard enough already to win, have one decent unit: the anvil, and when my opponents know they're gonna play dwarfs (and they always make anti-armies) they just need 35 points to seriously nerf it.

Also: why should they have two anti-dwarf items... Shouldn't they rather have more anti dark elf and chaos stuff? Technically, dwarfs are their allies. And it's not like dwarfs have anti HE stuff.
