I am just getting into warmachine with my friends and heres my initial 25 point list:
Any changes or suggestions? I think it is a pretty solid list.
Kaelyssa want an arc node, which you have, but she cant run 3 jacks very well. My suggestions would be to drop all 3 jacks and pick up a Phoenix. then with the extra points buy a max unit of halberds for some melee punch. Also drop the souless escort, while the anti magic is nice you have stealth and some times getting Witch Hound off is worth it.
Witch hound only triggers off of the battle group so the escort will have no effect in preventing a witch hound as it is attached to a unit.
It looks like your original list is 27pt and not 25.

No, I am using a min. MHSF.
The jacks are a good beginning unit, you've got speed, utility and something to smack big things upside the head
What Ember said is correct you're still 2 points over anyway - your min MHSF is 5pts and commander 2- thats 7 - combined with the remaining points you have its 27 not 25.
The one suggestion I do have is to remove the soulless from your MHSF, whilst the rest of the unit has stealth and ranged attacks automiss, the Soulless does NOT have stealth and can be targetted, I'd drop the soulless, that means you've only got to drop either the arcanist or downgrade eEiryss to just a 2 pt solo, I'd actually choose to downgrade (the arcanist will be useful) and eEiryss is great against WM but you need the points so either a second MHA (my experience the first attack will miss ) a scyir (flank with that many jacks is brilliant, team it with the chimera for some shinanigans!) or a magister for some extra movement, the ghost sniper is a nice model, but you're not really suffering for any ranged attacks, and Kaelyssa herself is a very good sniper.
