    First off, hello.

    Secondly, dont post point totals of un-upgraded units. The mods will get upset.

    Now, on to the list.

    The Highborn is a fairly common build, but Id get rid of the Glamourweave and Enchanted Shield in exchange for the Briarsheath. Your opponent cant hurt what he cant hit.

    As for your Spellsinger, just go for two dispel scrolls. The Orb isnt worth it.

    16 Glade Guard is way too many, in a single unit, at least. Its better to go with two units of 10.

    Glade Riders are good, but drop them to units of 5 and get them Musicians.

    Also, for your core, try to fit in another unit of 8 or 9 Dryads. You cant have too many of those guys.

    Your Wardancers will be much better off in a single unit of about 7 with Full Command.

    Drop the Treekin altogether. They are the worst unit in the army. Instead, look to get some Warhawk Riders (unit of 3) or Wildriders (unit of 6 with Full Command and the Warbanner).

    Other than that, everything is pretty good. Re-write the list and let us see what you come up with.

    Second try

    Hi,

    Thanx for the input. About the point totals I did not get reading the forum, so I will leave out the basic point totals. I also thought the 16 GG in 1 unit was much, and i was thinking the same as you. Dropping GR by 1 gave me the points to get enough for 2 units of 10 GG. Your comment also gave me some extra units here and there, which is always a good thing.
    I do not have space for an extra unit of dryad. But this is no problem, since I wanted alot of high mobility and the extra unit of WRoK gave me exactly what I wanted. Furthermore i dont have more dryads available .
    This will be it in units because i am at the limit of what I have in models of woodelves. if someone has any remarks please give them to me. I can always see what I can do

    Here is my modified list:

    Wood Elf Highborn w/ Alter Kindred, Bow of Loren, Arcane Bodkins, Light Armor, Great Weapon, Briarsheath. 264 pts

    alter noble, light armour, shield, great weapon, helm of the hunt, hail of doom arrow. 158pts

    spellsinger lvl 1Dispel scroll, Dispel scroll 140 pts

    branch wraith, LvL1 cluster of radients, annoyance of netlings 165pts

    10 GG
    10 GG

    5 GR w/ musician
    5 GR w/ musician

    8 dryad

    8 wardancers w/ musician

    6 WRoK w/ Full command + banner of Dwindling 242 pts

    1x treeman

    Kind regards,

    Marc

    Honestly, Id go with the Warbanner on your Wild Riders rather than the Banner of Dwindling. You want to be able to generate as much combat res as possible. Most of the time, your Wild Riders will be hitting the flank of a ranked unit who will be rolling one less dice to flee than you will to pursue anyway.

    warbanner or banner of dwindling

    I thought the same initially. I will switch to warbanner. This also gives me 2 extra dryad units since the warbanner is only __pts. I should have trusted my initial instinct


    Kind regards,

    Marc

    Please take care to not post the cost of unit upgrades and items.

    BigPappa has given some very sound advice. Well done mate.

    The only other thing I can recommend is give your Alter Highborn a shield. Sure the Briarsheath will help but every now and again a shot will through and the extra save may help.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    Well i like the list,personally i dont go highborn until 2k but that is my playstyle.I do agree that you should switch the banner o' dwindling for a war banner if you use them right you wouldn't need it and your rolling 3 dice to pursue anyways.

    Peace
