The Swordsmen from the Galadhrim by themselves could be on the fragile side, but when backed up by spears, those additional attacks would force the issue against lower fight skill units. Even with higher armor, losing fights again and again will put you in a bad spot!
I did spend a few extra points here and there to give the swordsmen shields, in the event that they would not have the pointy sticks behind them.
The katana shape of the blades made them interesting to paint.
The leafy pattern in the armor plates allowed for some interesting color reflections and contrasts!
