Ok, one of the things i find with woodelves, is that there cavalry is really expensive for its uses. 24pts a glade rider is a rip off TBH. And wild riders are too fragile to do anything. Regular cavalry for other races struggle in 8th anyways :p.

For these reasons, i woudl drop them. This will mean you will need more core. Either 10 glade guard w. Musician and Standard or 10 Dryads with champion will fill the gap.

Also, your charecters. The noble and the spellsinger just aint that great TBH. All of your power dice will be going to lore of life. And, the Noble is obselete without cav. And even so, he isnt that many attacks. well, he gets a few. But he just isnt that good for his points.

The only Noble i could see as useful would be a the following setup;

Noble, Alter Kindred, rageths wildfire baldes, Helm of the hunt, potion of strength

He gets (on the charge) 6 attacks. With potion of ztrength, hes S7, and flaming. I use him as a Monster hunter. He usually targets the usual culprits, Hellpits and Hydras. hes also useful to go in against units with regen, with the treekin. He gets rid of the regen, the treekin finish them off.

Alternativly, try and grab anouther treeman (if you have the model!)

Also, split the wardancers.

That is not a bad list actually.

However the Deepwood sphere may be a better choice than Calaingor's Staff.

Spear of Twilight is KB? The Dawnspear (-1 to hit after a wound) will help the protect the unit.
