Here is a list I made for the first battle in my campaign, against 600 points of Beastemn. The nuts and bolts of the campaign can be found here: http://www.ulthuan.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=30635

Noble with Heavy Armour, Great Weapon, Talisman of Loec or Gem of Courage
10 Archers
15 Spearmen with Full Command
11 White Lions with banner and champ
Eagle
5 reavers

Against Beastmen I am going to be out numbered like crazy, and considering my opponent has nothing to lose he is going to try to give me a first up beating.

I sort of wanted to stick with a scouting theme, but still need something that can hold the line if it has to. I like the idea of stubborn White Lions, but could swap them out with Sword Masters for more punch, and the Noble could use the GoC if they had to make a Ld test. I did think about taking two units of archers, and sticking in two chariots. The impact hits and combined unit strength would hurt a unit of beastmen real bad, especially if the noble was in one. But that leaves vunerable if the enemy reaches my lines with decent numbers.
Your thoughts?

as a beastmen player..... you need something to deal with shock attack from minotaurs, beastlord, razorgor / razorgor chartiot etc. I can't see anything in your list that would worry me as a beastment. shooting and magic would seem like the way forward, but given your list lacks this, I'd say SMs or DPs as the only thing to dish out enough damage in first round to stop them steamrolling over you.

beasts rely on shock attack. they're numbers are just chaff / distraction.

I have asked my mate what he plans to field next weekend. He said a lvl 2 shamun, 2 units of gors and a unit of ungors and 5 hounds. Hopefully I have the troops to handle that list.

I prefer giving the champion my White Lion unit the Gem o Courage, instead of a character. This as the unit are unable to benefit from both stubborn and general's leadership at the same time. "Cold-blooded" Ld 8 - Stubborn units tend to hold their ground.

I like the White Lions, but fielding Sword Masters against a low- to no-shooting army is always nice. Just watch out for impact hits! :) (Perhaps you'd try to fit in both?)
