I want to know if the models of the plastic box "WE archers" are dynamic and if its good quality ?
Can you give me your impression about this box?

. The box WE Archers (the one containing five) is fairly useless, if you are looking for something dynamic, look aggain, they are clones standing in a very un-dynamic possision.

However, if you mean the Glade Guard box, look no further, they are some of Games Workshops best models as of lately and they are multipart, meaning you can give them as good as any pose you'd like

may I ask, about wood elves. Is there any modell of a Spellsinger mounted? I can't find it. Either on steed, stag or unicorn?
+ are there still models that are not yet released? Such as nobles?

Yes, there are a few models that are yet to be released, amongst others, the Alter Noble with Helm of the Hunt and a hawk on his/herd.

As for the question on spearmaking, I'm not sure, however, if you are planning on modelling Eternal Guard out of a box of Glade Riders and a box of Glade Guard, remember that Eternal Guard does NOT have to be wielding twohanded spears, they fight with a lot of different weapons but the rule is a generalisation of their weapons.

I've got a horrible feeling the OP is talking about the new LOTR Wood Elves without realising...

in the WE raiders ?
You could probably look in the online store to see the seperate sprues, but for that, you would need a unit that actually exists. I don't know of any unit in all warhammer called "raiders".

As I said, the unit you are looking for is most likely Wood Elf Glade Riders, otherwise, you should be looking in the Lotr part of the online store

I bought the regiment box (equivalent to one glade rider regiment) and there were two two-handed spears. I used one for a rider and the other for a standard bearer conversion.

The archers are fantastically well done with lots of possibilities, considering that they're still archers.

Good luck

The glade guard are dynamic and multi part, cape, legs, body, arms and head. Though on some both armys are attached to the body. They are some of the best models GW has made in recent times.

Glade Guard are the Wood Elves archers, so yes this box set is used to make just archers.
From memory you get 2 sprues of riders, which both have a single hand weilded spear and a two hand weilded spear. So thats 2 of each in each box. But you do get a seperate spear with no hands per sprue and of course the spears that are part of the capes.

may I ask, about wood elves. Is there any modell of a Spellsinger mounted? I can't find it. Either on steed, stag or unicorn?
+ are there still models that are not yet released? Such as nobles?
Of the new models there is no mounted spell singer. If you wanted to use a mounted model you could use the fey enchantress and convert her a bit. Spell Singers cant ride stags only wild rider kindred characters can.
There is from memory, 2 foot nobles to be released, the alter kindred one with the horns, the eternal kindred one with the spear and sword. There is also a battle standard bearer to be released aswell as an eagle mounted noble.

alright, got any clue what month, year, decade they will be released? GW sure is slow.
July in the UK.

thanks for answering. Yes i mean the glade raiders. So, there are 2 spears which are handle with two hands, and one spear more (which is handle with one hand) for the champion ?
2 two handed ones
2 single handed ones
6-8 ones attached to the cape
2 seperate ones
The way GW has represented their champion is with a sword, which is also included, there is no seperate 'champion' spear though.

The only 'Spellsinger' kindred is the Glamour Weave, which lets him/her ride a unicorn, but must be mounted on either it or a elven steed. They also become a forest spirit. The only character who can ride a Stag is a Wild Rider kindred, which means hes either a noble or a highborn.

If I were you and wanted a mounted mage I would go with the fey encahtress and convert her a bit so she looks more elf like (despite the fact she is an elf) maybe lose the sword
