;) I like the 1000 point list, only advice would be a few upgrades...Branchnymps for the Dryads...Standard + Mus for the GladeRider unit. The Spell Singer could even join them on a nice bit of greentinted HorseFlesh. Drop a War Dancer + Radiants to pay for changes LION

You cannot carry a Cluster of Radiants with the spellsinger, it is only available for the dryad hero (cannot remember the name in english) and the treeman lord (cannot remember also xD).

minimum number for glade guard is 10. And as Benigno said; no cluster for mortals.

For the 500 point list I wouldn't bother with a Spellsinger. Just go for a basic Noble with the Hail of Doom Arrow. Two Dispel dice should be fine in such small point games anything more is just a waste of points IMHO.

For the 1000 point list I think you are spending too much on characters. Try cutting down on the amount of kit that you are giving them and put the points into buying another unit. Other than that the balance looks fairly OK to me. I would be tempted to put a Giant Eagle in to introduce a really mobile threat.

Doh, completely spaced the Radiants. Well, that should free up points I s'pose. Also, I thought that with Warband rules models with a 20x20/25x25mm base could have a min. size of 3? Ah well, with the points from the Radiants I can bring both Glade Guard squads to 10 anyway now :p.

Thanks for the feedback, guys!
