I have 55 points left to spend, what should I spend them on? Should I get rid of a unit of dryads and add the 55 points and get something else? What can be done with this list and can in do well on the battlefield?

Cheers!

Id drop the war riders they cost 2 much easy vp 4 the other player. Take a high born instead of a noble and mount him on a dragon also get a couple of treemen their just 2 good to leave at home. plus their bound spell of tree singing is a huge benerfit. over all i like the list.I just hate painting the buggers tho.

The list is fundamentally okay. Played well it should be highly annoying to your opponent due to the high number of flyers and fast cav. Several things could likely be more efficient.

Characters: do you really need 4? A like not using a lord as it saves you lots of points. I expect given the hughe number of wildriders your wild rider noble will be the general?
Kindred's eat up a LOT of points you could use elsewhere unless you're wed to the current set up.
Alter nobles can give you a lot of utility as can a BSB.

Troops: any unit escorting a character needs a champion to accept challenges for him.
Also, skirmishing melee troops really need champions for the extra attack in the same frontage.
The scout unit will likely not do much and I'd either drop them to free up 85 points or spend extra points to get 5 waywatchers instead.
You have a LOT of wild riders. Ultimately that is fine if it's what you're going for.
You have 4 units of flyers (counting eagle noble) and 4 units of fast cav. Make sure you really intend to play this annoyance and harrassment style or ease up on both and take more melee oriented troops.
