First, can a mod move this to tactics is it goes there I wasn't sure if it goes here or there.. Thanks

I love glade riders. I want to be sure the army works before I buy my codex.

How do you field an army purly of glade riders? A bowrider army :)

Can someone write me a list? 1000 points. Thanks!

I think a glade rider army would have a difficult time scoring vps. There shooting is good but no wheres near the shooting of glade guard. They are also very expensive, so if the enemy has a lot of shooting as well, your 6+ save cavalry army wont stand much of a chance. So if you really want an all cavalry army, Wild Riders arent a bad idea. Warhawk riders are good too.

About like before, if you go higher try for more Great Eagles, as the enemies missile units will have a field day, so you need to take out his ranged capability immediately

Few things Nagash: Firstly, nobles can;t take glamourweave kindred. Secondly, there's no point in the second hadn weapon on the mounted noble; only infantry get a 2 hand weapon bonus.

Otherwise, looks ok.

Oh, and Little Aad, sorry to sound harsh, but it's generally considered better to write a list yourself then ask for criticism rather than just asking someone for a list; write what you'd like the list to be, then let people say whether it would work.

Didn't say Kindred... If I had said Kindred, I would have put Kindred... :p

Oh smeg. Forgot about that... Changed to spear...

Otherwise, looks ok.
Since he wanted Glade Riders, I couldn't put in Wild Riders - all mounted army would be easier ;)

:D

But I do feel that item will really help him, shame I can't find something to boost the actual Glade Riders living time... :(
