I`m wondering if the glade riders would now be better off being changed to hawk riders or a basic unit of wild riders?

Overall I'm not disliking the list.

Personally I find wardancer lord not the best kindred but that's just me.

If you use him, I'd recommend a champion in the wardancer unit just for the 'volunteer' to accept a challenge for him while he attacks a better target.

I don't find a 4th treekin all that useful due to the really large frontage.

If it were me I'd suggest dropping to 3 treekin and using the spare points to put champions in all your skirmishing melee units (65 points should cover 4 branchnymphs and a bladesinger) as this will ultimately win you more melees than the spare bark-hulk.

Otherwise I think the unit sizes and kit are pretty reasonable.

I edited the list to remove the treekin. Not enough maneuvrebility and hey it was 25pts more for a treeman. I never usually take monsters because of cannons and the like...I`m still slightly dubious about it to be honest!

The wardancer definitely stays. One of the best characters in the game imho.

IMHO you'd be better of dropping one of the wild rider units or the glade riders, replacing it with great eagles/warhawk riders. Also, I'm curious about the wardancer lord, but if you say that it works for you, nothing at all to change about that.

Also a champion amongst the wardancers is a must when having a wardancer character of that magnuitude in there. Just think, you've just used that wardance that gives 4+ ward save (cannot remeber the name) and a chaos lord challanges you. You wouldn't want to do bo hiss with all his attacks, but you wouldn't want your t3 6+ ward save lord @~300 pts sent into him either.

EDIT: Sry, didn't notice the annoyance...

To be fair, being hit on 6's in a challenge is all the defence I need against chaos lords. Thats almost a 2+ ward save. ;)

I slightly modified the list,
