I just started WE because of frustration with being outmanouvered, outflown, outsneaked, outmagicked, outmonstered and what not with my other army (guess which one?). So this army might seem a bit unbalanced because I wanted a treeman no matter what, but i hope it will still work
GW, LA, SH, HoDA
Cluster of Radiants, Annoyance of Nettlings
10 Glade Guards
5 Wild Riders
Standard and musician
I would be thankful of any comments and reflections , since I pretty much lack any experience with the WE. At all
A very small army at 1000pts.
I guess when you have 1/3 of your army in one model it will happen. For me, there are not enough bodies on the ground. You just don't have enough units and will get outclassed by most balanced 1000pt armies.
But that said, give it a go, see how it performs.

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.
my guess is lizardmen
Did I get it? Do I win something?
give us some more details on your opponents and we could probably help more.
I don't like the Treeman, just because there are some pretty simple things that can take it out (cheap dwarven bolt throwers for example) I also would prefer a litle more numbers in troops.
Lizardmen? No no no...
When it comes to opponents, it kinda hard to say something specific, since it's gonna be an universal list. And yeah, it's probably far to few models, but the treeman is just a must in the fluff-department I'm moving up to 2000 pts soon, so then I will hopefully get over the too-few-models problem.
Btw, I'm trying it out tomorrow against an empire army I think is based on masses of infantry, so I perhaps the terror will make the treeman earn his points. I think that artillery in 1000 pts is usually easily avoided if you take some precautions, so I'm not afraid of some cheap chukka or something taking him out. Perhaps the Alter Noble is good for taking out these threats?
I'm actually thhinking that dwarfs would be the worst enemy for this army (fear, monster, terror, weak missile fire against 9LD, 4T and 3+ armour...It just wouldn't bite hard enough).
IMO part of your numbers problem could be alleviated by taking one of the two heroes. I'd drop the noble, but that is just my style. As far as what to add, I think another GG squad and musicians would be good as they would replace the loss of HoDA with more shooting.
