Why bother if he has armour? Or is it just for the extra dispel dice?

Spearmen are generally quite good against ogres. A relatively cheap unit which has that many attacks, especially when you take 15 in 3 ranks of 5, acts well against ogres as it is able to stand up to many ogre units and inflict nice amounts of damage. They are also good defenders of your bolt thrower. Wood elves may send skirmishers do take out your bolt thrower crew, which clearly needs to be avoided as the bolt thrower is a nice support for your army. Just keeping a unit of spearmen nearby means you are always ready to countercharge any enemy advances and keep those big bolts coming.

for 5 pts more he'd have access to the radiant gem of hoeth, still able to cast spells despite armour and with ones such as drain magic, you'd be able to form a better defence against those incoming nasties...

does the steed have ithmilar barding??

I assume your going defensive here? Drop silver helms down to 6 each, one drop down to 5 and add the commander in there. that'll save 70pts, loose 3 archers then you got a nice 100 extra pts to spend on whatever you want, while not crippling your forces too badly, this could be another bolt thrower, another chariot, or with a little more tweaking, even some swordmasters....
