Elven Host

I was playing around today with elves and toyed with this:

Erestor
5 HE Warriors, Shields
5 HE Warriors, Shields, Spears
2 HE Warrios, Bows

Gildor Inglorian
5 HE Warriors, Shields
5 HE Warriors, Shields, Spears
2 HE Warriors, Bows

Rumil
4 Galadhrim Warriors, Shields
4 Galadhrim Warriors, Shields, Spears
4 Galadhrim Warriors, Bows

It lacks some punch, but has a little magic, 2 good fighting characters and a decent backup fighter. The thing that I found was that in most games now, archery has lesser impact and you can really direct fire almost from the start. Theme behind it is a scouting force from Rivendell and Lothlorian with Gildor as the liason. 39 Elves is pretty good.

Pretty cool list! I've got an elf force, but due to the fact that I'm in America, and the closest GW store is an hour away, I haven't bothered getting any individual heroes beyond Legolas, so I augment it with a Gondorian force as an ally.
Warband 1
Elf Captain w/heavy armor and shield
6 Galadhrim Elves w/shields
6 Galadhrim Elves w/spears and shields
200 pts

Warband 2
Captain of Gondor w/shield
6 Warriors of Minas Tirith w/shields
6 Warriors of Minas Tirith w/shields and spears
157 pts

Warband 3
Legolas w/Elf Cloak and armor
6 High Elves w/heavy armor and shields
6 High Elves w/heavy armor and bows
243 pts
Might:7
Models:39
Any advice on how to improve it?
