I'm going to be picking up Wood Elves, and I have thrown together a list to help familiarize myself with the rules, and just want to know if this was a solid place to start from...
Wardancer Noble -
> Moonstone of the Hidden Ways
> Cluster of Radiants
Glade Guard (10)
Glade Guard (10)
Glade Riders (5)
Some shooting, stuff to guard the flanks, Great Eagle for march blocking, and other goodness.

Thats a pretty solid 1000pt list. I would try to find the points for a musician for the glade riders but apart from that I think your list is very solid.
your probably going to have to remove the totals on the units with no upgrades, or a mod will do it for you.
I usually run a similar list to this at the 1000pt mark - it has worked out pretty well for me. For a starting army, it should do pretty well to help you learn. I would try to add one or two more wardancers to that unit (even if you've got the moonstone, you can still suffer from ranged attacks before you hit combat), maybe even dropping the dryad unit sizes down to 8 to pick up a couple of wardancers and a musician for your glade riders.
Good list, overall. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for the suggestions. Quick question though...
I've had a bit of difficulty finding a general consensus on Wardancers, but is there a typical unit size? Is 7-8 pretty normal?
At 2000 pts I generally run 2 troups of 7, but I've heard people preach 10+ man squads. I think at 7 they really start to shine, after that, you get what you pay for (in points that is).
Personally I haven't tried them at 1000 pts, for various reasons... like I didn't have the models when my friends played 1000 pt battles, so they kinda jumped right into the 2000 pt slot. However, if used properly, I would think that there distructive capabilities at 1000 pts should be exponential, especially since they'll be in the company of a Nobel.
Yeah, purchasing the Wardancers struck me as being a little tricky, as I wanted to have two units for 2000+ points while avoiding the purchase of two boxes and two command blisters. However, seeing as how seven is a good, reasonable number for the unit size, I'm going to just run the Champion models as regular troops and the Musician as is. That way, I can just buy one box and two blisters for two units of seven with musicians.
Unfortunately, the Wardancer Lord model is only available through GW direct, so I'm going to have to buy [I]a third[I] command blister and use the odd champion model or the three as the Lord/Noble. The Great Eagles are apparently only available in the same way, so I'll probably end up buying a Warhawk Rider model and just put them on the table sans the rider. The one with the armored head looks pretty cool, anyway.
