I would drop the banner, as Amdur already counts as a banner for all Easterlings. Not worth the 25 points.

Maybe consider using the points saved from the banner to give all your bowmen pikes (nothing stopping you, just a bit of conversion work), and stick your war priest on a horse? That makes him a little more maneuverable. Either that or stick Amdur on a horse for that extra attack.

the reason i kept amdur of the horse was to get him in front of the pikes so that his banner effect would be most usefull and the other banner to overlap into the other fights on the other side of the block

Amdur should definitely go on a horse. Not only does his really increase his killing power, but it also increases the range of his banner.
