First of all drop the mage. Magic isn't worth it in small games. You'll have 4 PD and he'll have at least two DD. Not to mention the wood elve lore isn't all that great. With those points get another unit (glade riders/scouting glade guard/...)

Even if you don't drop the mage, move hail of doom to the noble. Mages have the same BS as your core, and you want to get the most out of that item.

For the noble I'd give him the hail of doom for sure, and then either put him on a steed or give him a great weapon and make him an alter kindred.

Good point Doom arrow will be so much better on noble and if i make him alter il have to keep the mage to be my general (for now) but again for now this is all i have untill i buy something hard hiting to boost the army to 1000pts i have spare models from the box but there no enough to make thr mini unit size needed.

Thanks malorian btw i read your battle reports allways a good read :)

I agree with Malorian on the whole Spellsinger issue. I'd give your Noble the Hail of Doom Arrow and an inexpencive defencive item such as the Briarsheath. The rest of your army looks fine. I'd sugest pushing the points you save from the Spellsinger into buying another unit of Dryads. If you can squeeze in a Giant Eagle that would be useful as well.

Though I agree it's far better suited on a hero with a higher BS, HoD is kind of funny on a mage.

People always move their prime HoD targets away from your lurking waywatcher lord or noble. Then, as they approach your seemingly harmless lone mage, POW $^#!#$!!!!

No one would ever see that coming. Especially not if you add in the explatives.
