I would suggest taking out one of the spearmen units because they will only do so much against an army with high strength. Using the 192 you have, add another 5 white lions to beat down your opponents. That will be another 75 points which will let you have 117 points left. Use those points for upgrades for your prince like a mount or add a noble with some decent magic items.

Im not an expert on High Elves but i think that the white lions unit is way too small. I think that such elite units should have greater numbers and some form of protection that couldn help them in some way. Also i dont see the point in giving your army general and a prince at that a spear give him a decent weapon because if he was going going to go into a challenge he is only S3 or 4 and nothing else and he will get nailed in combat by any type of other hero and u cant just rely on WS, I and special rules to save you

Here's my analysis of your list.

Prince:Way under powered for his price. A plain spear won't do much for this guy. Try something like this.
Prince: Armour of Caledor, Vambraces of Defence, Great Weapon = 238
Very combat effective and can own in challenges.

Mages: Good. Just remember to be casting Drain Magic against magic heavy armies.

Spearmen: Odd formations like 6x3, 7x3, or even 8x3 are good for getting the most out of fight in 3 ranks. And you should only have 2 spearmen units with 21 each. Minimum core FTW!

White Lions: More. You need nice blocks of White Lions for a powerful hammer force. They can soak up magic missiles and shooting with that 3+ save. And utilize forests for the no penalty special rule.

Reavers: Good for flanking and annoying your enemy. Use these guys to your advantage.

Tiranoc Chariot: Fast and effective. Pound ranks with your spearmen or white lions.

lion chariot:good for pounding ranks. Use it wisely.

Bolt Throwers: good choice.

you need to really think about the wargear on all your lords/heroes a real good combo for a mouted prince is vambraces of defence heavy armour and star lance, jewel of dusk is awesome for mages, cheap and effective
