Gaah! I had just finished typing this out when opera closed for no reason..
Oh well, here it is again:
Hi, I'm here because i am looking for advice on my first fantasy game. I have chosen wood elves as my army (obviously) and am unsure what to go with after buying the battalion. My first game will be a 400pts doubles match, with my 40k doubles partner, who is going with mage-melee heavy high elves, and is leaving the ranged support to me. the idea of the tournament is that the pair must have a hero (HE Mage) between them, and a core unit each. I was thinking of going with plenty of glade guard, and some waywatchers, though i wanted to consult some experts first.
If you're after experts, you've come to the wrong place...
Well Glade Guard are a no-brainer. Don't bother with waywatchers in 400 points. Hell, don't bother with them in anything less than 3000 points, they're really too expensive for what they are, cool models notwithstanding.
A Great Eagle will probably do fairly wel for you, and make the rest of the points up with Dryads.

I don't know, waywatchers are expensive yes, but they can do some pretty amazing things.
March blocking on turn 1...
whipping out a unit of +1 armor save knights with Ranged Killing blow.
All the while almost impervious to missile fire. (especially in wood )
WW usually have a spot nestled in my 1,500 list and up
I would take the following. I am assuming only one person is required to have a hero, not that only one hero may be taken.
Hero: Noble = 158 points
- Alter kindred, light armor, shield, great weapon, helm of the hunt, hail of doom arrow.
(this guy is just awesome and at only 800 points a side will almost always be well worth bringing)
Core: 10 glade guard = 120 points
(fire power base)
Core: 5 glade riders = 120 points
(support fire power and can be used to bait units to your high elf allies close combat units)
This puts you at 398 and gives you a lot of fire power which is what you said was your job on the team.
