I started playing Wood Elves in 2004 and have now had two battles in 8th edition using the following list

Lord: ysenella Evergreen Lvl 4 [B]spellweaver [Lore of Life] Rhymer’s Harp, Rageth’s wildfire blades, Channelling staff. 375
The Daughters of Caldrannis 15 Dryad’s 192
Ysenella’s Glade Guardians 14 glade guard 192
Ysenella’s seekers 6 scouts 114
Kiarous Wildhaven’s Wild Riders 5 full command 166
The Stalwart Kindred 20 Eternal Guard 320 with the banner of Wailing.
The Shadow glade sentinels 6 Treekin 390
Caldrannis: Treeman 285
2034 pts total

I've had successes against 2034 pt Chaos army with the mark of Khorne and a similar sized DE army.

Part of an over arching campaign which has run for about 5 years the plan is to eventually move up to 2500 pts but the chaos player is relatively new and thats the points he had available.

Hehe okay.

Well about the list. Youve sort of got a "one unit of each" thing going on. Personally I favour a little bit of redundancy.

I would remove the wild riders and add another unit glade guards and some more dryads so you can field two (smaller) units of dryads too.
I liked wild riders in 7th but in 8th Im afraid theyre pretty damn poor :/

Also I think you should take two eagles instead of the scouts.

But if this list works for you then don't change it :)

The Wildriders took out a 240 pt unit of chosen followed by a block of 30 Marauders they then got behind the Lord's unit and were pivotal in wiping them out. The Vanguard move is a god send for Wildriders with careful movement it is possible to get behind the enemy and wipe out warmachines and get of combined charges.
