If you are wanting to play an annoyance/avoidance army, you could consider taking Glade Riders to fill your core. They are much harder to catch, being M9 fast cavalry.

I thought that, but I need some units on the board to inflict some shooting damage. Plus, ambushers does glade riders no favours.

Ambush allows Glade Riders to come on without getting shot at too much.

However, if you want to use Glade Guard instead, try halving the unit of 20 into 2 units of 10.

Apart from that, the list looks solid.

Thanks for the advice, I'll give that a try.

And you could maybe halve the Wild Riders, because they do most of their damage on the charge, and in a unit of 10 the second rank only gets 1 attack (IIRC)

Two units are more mobile, and can charge two targets.
