I'd feel pretty uneasy with that few Swogs and Mimring. My army would feel flimsy.
Whats wrong with Mimring? He's pretty good for only 150 points.

I disagree. I think the knight with Gilbert can do quite well with average dispatch rolls. If the move + 2 is in your tournament glyph pool, than the knights become even more dangerous. You still have 135 points left for range. How about Krav + Eldgrim. After Eldgrim dies the Krav now have 7 move and 7 range.
Once, in a 500 point tournament, I had:
Sir Gilbert
3xKnights of Weston
Eldgrim
2x4th Mass Line
I never even used the 4th Mass Line, crushed everyone I faced, and Eldgrim often was useless. (I won the tournament.) And usually there wasn't any move+2 glyphs on the battlefield I was on. Also, I was thinking of other armies. How does this one sound?
Cyprien Esenwein 150
Sonya Esenwein 195
Marcu Esenwein 215
Marro Warriors 265
Nilfheim 450
Or I could do this:
Major Q9 180
Nilfheim 365
Raelin(RotV) 445
A final possibility is:
Laglor 110
Major Q9 290
Major Q10 440
Isamu 450

Sorry, no matter how much you try, you can not ignore yourself.

There's nothing wrong with Mimring. He's just not quite as good as Raelin and additional Swogs/Gruts for his cost. I like to have a minimum of 3x Swogs and Arrow Gruts when I play them. Then comes Krug, then Raelin. Mimring will fit if he can, but not before the rest of that stuff.

While it is a good army, I've never been good with Raelin. For me, everyone always targets her first, so I can never use her defensive aura. She might be a wast of 80 points.

That's a good idea. I might change Guilty with Isamu and Marcu Esenwein, though. It's a possibility.

It has a lot to do with placement. I try to find a place for her to go where she is either on height, or LoS for my enemies to her is obstructed. This second technique can be problematic with shorter ranged units because they might have to leave her aura to get in range of your opponents, but can be extremely effective.

I agree Isamu is awesome. I don't like Marcu though, so I'd still go with Guilty.

I've actually never tried Marcu.

I also have and like Charos. Maybe there's a good army with him, like:
Charos 210
Major Q9 390
Me-Burq-Sa 440
Isamu 450

It's quite safe, given only Isamu is medium. However, it was off the top of my head, so it might not be the best. Raelin might be good with Charos, too.

I just thought of a probably better Charos army. It is:
Charos 210
Raelin(RotV) 290
Major Q10 440
Isamu 450

So you know, I've already posted that in the 500 point armies thread.
