Just testing a few ideas out....
(edit: 600 points)
List 1:

Haldir, Defender of Helm's Deep

20 Galadhrim warriors, spear/shield
10 Galadhrim warriors w/bow

Erkenbrand, horse
11 Riders of Rohan

List 2:

Celeborn, blade, armor, shield
Haldir, bow/armor
15 galadhrim warriors spear/shield
5 gladhrim warriors (Elven blade only)
Galadhrim warrior/banner

6 Galadhrim knights, bow/shield

List 3:

Galadriel, Lady of the Galadhrim

15 galadhrim warriors spear/shield
15 galadhrim warriors /shield
Galadhrim warrior
galadhrim warrior banner

6 galadhrim knights bow/shield

List 1 seems to be the most me.

I'm assuming these are 600 pts. I like the Galadriel list if you were just doing pure elves as she will minimize arrow casualties. I also think that your first list is the most solid. The rohan cav may not be F5 but there are more of them and a hero. Also, why not just give all the elves spears in list 3 since you cant use the elven blade with a shield if I remember correctly.

yes, sorry....they're 600 point lists.

The reason for the 15/15 in list 3 is because that's what I own, and I have to make due with what I have. I'm watching the Two Towers extended version right now and I'm thinking of ammending list 1 to include throwing spears on all the riders.

Those are all very small lists. Of the set I like list 3 due to Galadriel and the effect she can have on the force, but I agree with eric that spears are a better idea of course I would also recommend bows on the knights as well.

However as you stated the models are what you have so ...

I like list 1... but I'm always partialt to Rohan. Haldir and Erkenbrand are both great values for what they do.

I'd break up the Riders of Rohan to make sure 1/3 of them get bows too.
