This looks like a really fun army, but I think you're going to have a hard time with the rock hard blocks everyone seems to have at least one of now. A treeman or some treekin (or both!) would help you tie that sort of thing up so you can control the board. especially if you're going with lore of life. Personally, I've been finding life better for my WE's, but beasts is a great list too.

I know it's supposed to be a hit & run list but like Caladin says it would be really useful to have something that could reliably hold a big block up for a turn. Also, I think I would lose the glade riders for either more wildriders (a unit of 10 would be good, 12 would be better) so you have something that can break ranks, or some great eagles (they would be cheaper than the glade riders and probably do the same job better).
I do hope your list works though as it has all the stuff in there I liked from 7th, so good luck.

How will 12 wild riders break ranks of units that say have 20-30 guys? Can you explain this?:confused:

I think he's thinking of flank charging, and since 12 models will give you a rank, this will disrupt the ranks of the 20-30 model regiment :)

Yeah sorry, maybe I should have been clearer, fast cav with at least 2 complete ranks can negate the unit's rank bonus when charging to the flank/rear. Right? They will still be steadfast if they have more ranks though, and if they get to reform the riders will be dead next turn so you really need to combine charges to make it worth it.

Alright, thnx for clarifying.
