How balanced are the preconstructed armies for the Legions boxes? I'm wondering because the points are all over the place. The Orcs are the lowest at 137 and the Knights are the highest at 158. I just find it odd that these armies have such variable points. I thought Legions was supposed to present two, evenly-matched, 150-point armies.

(And I still haven't had a chance to try the game myself )

Each army is 150 points counting spells. This explains the Orcs. It is not clear to me why your Knights go over.

Legions Army for Knights
2 Fairy Swarms@5----------10
2 Fenryn Guards@10--------20
2 Groman Juggernauts@14---28
2 Knights of Valor@6------12
4 Men at Arms@4-----------16
4 Royal Bowmen@5----------20
1 Royal Jester@10---------10
1 Royal Falconeer@7--------7
1 Scout@6------------------6
2 Sergeant at Arms@8------16
1 Siege Catapult@13-------13
TOTAL--------------------158

I'm using the prices found in the Diskwars spreadsheet here on BGG and the army lists found in the Legions rules. Is it possible the rules don't have the correct lists? You mentioned Orcs are only 137 because of spells, but the list doesn't show any spells for them, whereas Dragonkin, Elf, Makhim, and Uthuk all do.
