Blimey that's a lot of trees. You relying quite heavily on your ability to cause wounds to win combats - there's only one unit that can remove ranks bonuses and no static CR. Getting two or even three skirmish units into CC can be quite difficult due to how they rank up and you need as many as possible to get the wounds to win a combat. Will 6 power dice be enough to pull off the tree surfing? Question is really when do you need the Treeman in combat? I normally field 2 dispel scrolls and between 4 and 6 dispel dice in 2K so I could probably shut it down for two turns; IF not withstanding. I would guess that's about average for a 2K army. Can you wait for two turns for your treeman to start moving?

I'm not saying it can't/won't work - it just looks a little unforgiving of a poor round of dice to me.

Hate the models because they cost so much. Also remember I have 2 free bound teee-singing from the Ancient himself.

imo make the wildriders bigger to 6 and where your glade riders, wild riders are good but remember they cannot flee, so by taking glade riders that will give you the edge vs other fast armies, also tree kin are good but not in a we army...they are pointless, as them and eg cant really hold up to other strong units with out flanks. In my we list I dont take any units that rank up minus some glade guard cause they are cheep and are the bait.

you do not need two lords to have 2treeman ancients! there is a treeman ancient rare choice!

Nope. Just a normal Treeman is Rare. An Ancient is a Lord and a Rare.

Well then why not take a regular treeman and a treeman ancient? in a 2000points list?
