I like the idea to make Sylvan Archer non-scoring light troops. That would contribute to the playstyle with fast and mobile units that can easily evade approaching enemies. Also I think shooting units should be counted against Unseen Arrows (in addition to being core) to limit the shooting part of the army. The limitation of # bows would then be no longer required.
Combining the two elite archers into one unit makes sense. But this must be done in a way that allows versatile usage against high armor AND high resilience enemies. I think a solution could be that Master Archer gets a third option to deal with high resilience, for example Str +1 / +1 to wound / Poison Attack. Then we would have an elite unit that can be used against a lot of different enemy types.
Proposal: If Sylvan Sentinels were removed from the army roster and Pathfinders are given a more generalist role, one that makes them exceptional against the most common types of units instead of a specific niche, many SE players would be satisfied and this would help smooth over the RPS nature of the unit. Giving the unit Lethal Strike as part of this package would help fill the hole left behind by the removal of Sylvan Sentinels.
