Pure playing effectiveness, 2250 points, don't hold back anything.

Highborn, Dragon, LA, Enchanted Shield, Sword of Might, Stone of the Crystal Mere, Helm of the Hunt - 543

3x8 Dryads - 288
2x10 Glade Guard, musician - 252
2x5 Glade Riders, musician - 258

2x6 Wild Riders, musician, Standard Bearer - 348
2 Treeman - 570

Total - 2247

It is weak on Magic Defense, maybe 3 Monsters is the wrong direction to take for an all comers list, but it presents enough offensively that many lists will be forced to deal with my game plan rather than pursue their own. The Standard Bearers on the Wild Riders are just there to take up points, those should be the first to go with any cuts.

Seems like a really strong and powerful list. I like it:)

It's good, but most magic heavy armies will take out your dragon and treemen fast. I personally don't consider a forest dragon as an optimal choice, mainly because the highborn is simply pathetic. I mean, he has T3 and a 4+ AS, so even simply RnF models can kill him easily. His offense sucks too: a 200 point character with 5 S5 attacks on the charge.

If you really want a forest dragon in the list, the special character naestra and arahan may be the way to go. Highborns are just too fragile and dont pack enough punch for what a dragon lord has to do. I fyou really do want to take him i suggest either equiping him for shooting with bow of loren and magic arrows and fly around breathing and firing arrows, or go for the oaken armour and other protective gear.

3 big monsters can be seen as cheesy but you said that doesnt matter.
You have 2 dd and no scrolls = massacred by most magic heavy armies and there are a few out there.

Magic heavy will definetely be a problem, so How about this:

Dropping the Dragon/highborn and the standards from the WR will free up 579 points. With that, I could include a spellweaver with Wand of the Wych Elm and Divination orb, and some wardancers or at least another core unit or two. Ive used the Orb+wych elm combo before with MR(1) units, and it was very effective at shutting down a WOC army with 4 lvl 2 magic users.

You have a quarter of your army in stubborn "troops". Ever considered a BSB?

I dont know how good is rerollable dispel dice when you only have 4+1 dd per turn.
Maybe its better to go with a scroll caddy and bsb.
