Hey I was getting bored of my old VC army I've been playing for a while so I thought I'd try something radically different. I wanted to do something I hadn't seen before so I'm basing the list around the Sisters of Twilight and a Unicorn.

Heroes:

Sisters of Twilight 325
Eagle

Spell Singer 260
Lvl 2
Glamourweave
Unicorn
Calingor's Stave
Dispel Scroll

Branch Wraith 165
Lvl 1
Cluster of Radiants
Annoyance of Netlings

Noble 115
Hail of Doom Arrow
Asyendi's Bane


Core

Glade Guard 126
10 models
Musician
*Noble goes here

Glade Guard 126
10 models
Musician

Dryads 132
10 models
Branch Nymph

Dryads 108
9 models
*Branchwraith goes here

Special

Wild Riders 192
6 models
Wild Hunter
Standard

Wild Riders 166
5 models
Wild Hunter
Standard
*Spellsinger goes here

Rare

Treeman

2000 points

The idea is to take pot shots with the mobile flying stone thrower bow from 30 inches away which should do some decent damage with a S6 hit in the center and something around 10 more S3 hits on a ranked unit. While that's going on the rest of the army tries to nail weaker units by hitting all at once and autobreak stuff due to outnumbering with fear. The archers will be aggressive and advance and fall back to mess with enemy charges and hopefully get them disorganized. Treeman's there to help stick more powerful things in place.

The noble is included since I need a general with a leadership higher than 8 and I don't have the points to pay to make him an effective Wild Rider. He has that goofy bow since nothing in the Wood Elf list is 10 points and I had it to blow.

Hmmm, its interesting, it is pretty much the opposite of the list I play which has few points in characters and lots in core. I don't think you want to count on fear doing much, you just don't have enough models to reliably outnumber most units. Magic and shooting will both be a problem, it won't take much to get that glade gurad unit with the general to start taking panic tests and characters on large mounts are always tempting targets. You have great mobility but I wonder if you have enough weight behind it to really break units or if you will end up bouncing off. For me I make up for the lack of a real anvil in the army by using lots of hammers (I use 40 dryads.) If you try it, let us know how it works.

Just a couple of thoughts. I don't really get much mileage from the sisters but if you want to use them I'm fine with you trying.

Your glamourweave mage seems to be about to have trouble. The last place you want a mage is in melee, which is exactly the place where you want the wild riders escorting her to be. I'd think about dropping the kindred and unicorn to free up points although the mobility and MR are handy.

I'd also look at putting a nymph in the unit escorting your branchwraith, although with the annoyance she may be better off taking the challenges herself.
