I can see that this list would be very fun to use, and you'd no doubt be able to outmaneuver any force.

However, the amber pendant can only be used by characters on foot, and this Highborn is on a Dragon.

Also, I have found that units of 10 glade Riders don't actually do more damage than units of say 6-8. That's just my experience though.

With extra points for taking out a few GR (if you wanted to), you could buy a Great Eagle which is excellent for taking out enemy spellcasters at the back of an army.

Yeah, theres only one mistake I can see, and maybe think about decreasing unit size on GR, but it looks like a lot of fun.

Do you know what you would be using this list against? Because I know that skaven could pack a few things to severely limit your movement (which is obviously your strong point).

Guessing at what you're going for JD, switch out the units of 10 glade riders and drop every banner and horsemaster. I thought you had learned something....

Also drop that damned dragon, it's terrible, and with the machine gun lord... no.

What you are going for is called a Sethayla style list. The only thing I would add to their suggestion is that units of 5-6 wild riders could also be fun. Add Orion as your lord instead of that dragon rider and you have quite the wild hunt :P Or ignore that mean little idea and just put your lord on a horse or.... just go the normal route and make him an alter lord. You know you want it.

Someone on here who would be very good to ask about htis is an older member called Ra'meses.

Now that's a list I would be afraid of. I think that Wild riders give an amazing CC punch in a Wood Elves army, and that many opposing players vastly underestimate them.

I love the sheer speed and I see you followed a little bit of help from the link Deraj posted. I never realized how good the alter kindred was. I totally missed the 9" movement!

The only possible reason you could have to do this is to run her with the wild riders, and.... why? You're terrible with lords in this list :P

Well, he could downgrade the spellweaver to be riding an elven steed, then have him running around with the glade guard, and using some more shooting/assist spells instead of the lore of beasts combat upgrades.

And I would add one or two warhawks to that same unit, then add a wild rider to the unit of 5. But I like either symmetrical units or units of 5 so that could just be me.

And thats a lot of magic power, you could take out a whole spellsinger and add another warhawk unit for good CC/mage killing.

;p
