Hello, I wanted to renew my old woody list becouse I felt it was a bit lacking on the cc part, also it was feeling a bit futile somehow. I wanted more dryads and more cc potency.
Here's my new list i made up, Im aiming for a nice balanced but strong list for fun games:

Lords & heroes:
Treeman ancient /w annoyance of netlings,cluster of radiance. -375p.

Noble battle standard bearer /w amaranthine brooch and steed -139p.

Alter noble /w GW,la,s,HodA,HotH -158p.

Core:
8 dryads -96p.
8 dryads -96p.
8 dryads -96p.

10 glade guard -120p.
10 glade guard -120p.


5 glade riders /w mus- -129p.

SPECIAL:

5 Wild riders /w mus -130p.
7 wardancers -126p.
3 warhawk riders -120p.

RARE:
Treeman -285p.


Comes down at 1990points. 3 dispel dice is a bit low but can afford a mage.
C&C welcome!

Lords & heroes:
Treeman ancient /w annoyance of netlings,cluster of radiance. -375p.
Nasty, looks good. I never used treeman ancients, tell me how it goes

Noble battle standard bearer /w amaranthine brooch and steed -139p.
Seems ok

Alter noble /w GW,la,s,HodA,HotH -158p.
Same as my alter noble, perfect

Core:
8 dryads -96p.
8 dryads -96p.
8 dryads -96p.
Ouch, that will hurt the enemy, think about putting these behind ur GG, waiting for the enemy then GG flee through you dryads who accept the enemies charge

10 glade guard -120p.
10 glade guard -120p.
Take musicians for +1 Ld of rallying

5 glade riders /w mus- -129p.
good

SPECIAL:

5 Wild riders /w mus -130p.
you really want 6 WR with FC here at 158pts
7 wardancers -126p.
A good size, though I do prefer to take musicians because for that 1 game where it ties and you lose you will wish to god you had spent that megre amount of points
3 warhawk riders -120p.
I was never a fan of these, though if you aren't taking a great eagle or waywatchers they can deal with seige engines

RARE:
Treeman -285p.
Overkill with the Treeman ancient in my opinon. I would take 7 or so waywatchers, they are good in close combat and range so its a really good balance

Comes down at 1990points. 3 dispel dice is a bit low but can afford a mage.
Branchwraith with lvl 1 gives you a good combat unit with resistance at just 105pts, perhaps take this with way watchers not 2nd treeman.
C&C welcome!

It is a good list, tell me how it goes. I am not an expert on wood elves, I have been playing empire more recently but that is what I remember.

Thanks Orthanus those are good options, however I cba to buy and paint a sixth WR :D

2 Treemen might be overkill but I want to try it out.
I will also test dumping alter noble giving hoda to bsb, and taking my pretty waywatchers in use again. Ill tell you how it goes goes, I should get some games going in 3 weeks.

It looks rather similar to my own list:

As for yours, I think you may have a serious issue with magic defense.

Pity about the missing 2 dryads.

You really need more dispel dice. 3 dispel dice and no scrolls? Sorry but that is just pure suicide when you're a wood elf. Apart from your big trees the army is very fragile and will suffer horribly to magic. Also with no scrolls and only 3 d dice, how will you stop infernal gatewaym, pit of shades on your treemen and other gamewinning über-spellls?
You really need that scroll caddy at 2000. Trust me.

Drop the wardancer noble for the pts. You can add her for the 2250 army.
