5 x Glade Riders ( spellsinger here )
12 x Dryads
12 x Dryads ( Branchwraith here )
10 x Wardancers , champ and mus
3 x Treekin
all comments are welcomed thank you
well, its a good list, but i would make a couple changes...
If your going to use the bow of loren, you need to have magic arrows (starfire arrows, or hagbane arrows) to use with it. If not dont use it. I find that th extra hits wont do much unless they can cause special effects. scrap the tree kin for points. With the left overs, boost the number of glade riders to eight., or exchange the glade riders alltogther for wild riders. I would not have your spell singer with a unit, instead make her/him float around in the back. With the extra points i would get more glade guard, and exchange the scouts for waywatchers. I have used tree kin in the past, and a unit of 8 dryads will last longer in combat. Also ,scouts are only good if you dont have points for waywatchers, becasue they loose the special bows....
Thats my two cents, and hope it helps...if not, ill gladly discuss pros/cons of stuff. Its good to see other perspectives sometime...

High Born - The way you have him setup he doesnt' really specialize in any one task. The Bow of Loren gives you extra shots but to get the most points out of it you should add in a special arrow. The Brooch's save is best for alters kindreds or something expected to be used often in CC. Since, this is a scout squad they probably shouldn't be used like that. So my suggestion would be to drop the Brooch and beef up the shooting. I would suggest Starfire or Arcane Bodkins. However, another option could be the moonstone of the hidden ways. I have used it before to draw a unit to me, then I moved the squad to the side of the map. I effectivly cheezed off my opponent so bad with it they couldn't really focus for the rest of the game. My Waywatcher Lord became his White Whale.
Spell Singer - If you want him to get close enough to use skills like that befuddlement then you should beef up this squad a little but and never, ever, engage them in CC, unless you know the unit will break or it turn 6 maybe 5. The problem is you have a huge point amount here for a unit that can break or be killed easily.
Personally I disagree with Toast, you should include the mage with a swuad like your archers. The limits the chances that he/she is singled out. Trust me the first time you kill an enemy's General or Mage with your Scout Squad in the very first turn you will understand the pain of losing a lone unit. If the wizard is staying back I would get dispell scrolls instead of the befudlement.
Tree Kin - Trust me when I say that there are few people in these forums if any who love Tree-kin more then me. However, I think you should drop them. With only 3 of them I see an easy pts. Most armies will be smart enough to take these down in a way that limits the casualties. To many armies have a beefy unit like this an anybody intelligent will know how to kill them.
I would suggest that you use the pts. to get a second squad of Wardancers like you already have or get some Wild Riders or another 12 unit Dryad squad and a great Eagle or another scout squad and great eagle. There are a lot of options about what to do with the pts. try some of you own ideas. However, if you are set on the tree-kin I suggest you deploy them as far forward as possible and use them to soak up fire as you advance.
Treeman - If you end up with some extra pts I suggest Murder of Spites. I love the extra attacks. It makes the opponents jaw drop when you get as many attacks as his 5 wide squad of spearmen.
Remember I am just giving suggestions, my ideas may not match your play style.
You mention using special arrows like arcane bodkins or starfire but since i carry the enchanted item hail of doom i cannot. Do u mean to drop hail of doom for it? Because i think arrow of doom is amazing. Also if i do want to keep arrow of doom should i drop the bow of loren? thank you
Personally I think you should use Arcane Bodkins or Starfire Arrows with the Bow Loren. I think you should clear up some points and give the Hail of Doom arrow to your Wizard, especially if you are keeping him in the Glade Riders.
