    Is there a name for a class that uses primarily conjuration,light or heavy armor,one handed weapons?
    Or anything close to that?

    Those skills basically fall under the jurisdiction of a "Spellsword". Some would call it a Battlemage but this seems incorrect, a Battlemage mainly relies on spells for combat and can use a melee weapon up close for support but a Spellsword does it the opposite way, using spells to support a melee oriented combat style. Both can use Conjuration for support and distractions but Battlemages typically use ranged damage spells in the form of Destruction magic, since you didn't list Destruction as a skill this has to be a Spellsword.

    Thanks for everyone's replies. I wasn't planning on destruction. If I was going to use another school it was going to be illusion or alteration.

    Perhaps a sort of Rogue? Like the stereotypical swashbucklery fencer type, but with an added arcane twist.

    Ooh! Play a soldier who made a deal with Clavicus Vile in order to be back with the Imperial Legion and never have to fight alone again. Vile’s response would have been to to teach you basic Conjuration and then render you unconscious, only for you to wake as the prisoner of an Imperial caravan headed for Helgen.
