    1500 point my first purchase army. casual play

    Heylo, I just got 2 battalion boxes , a beastlord and a bray shaman.

    I came up with a list for casual play, the guys I play against pretty much exclusivly use, dark elves, WoC, Ogres, dwarves and ocasionally High elves.


    1500 pts Everything I own list.

    General
    Great Bray Shaman - 335
    AHW
    L4 - Lore of Beasts
    Hagtree Fetish
    Crown of Command
    Talisman of Preservation

    Hero
    Wargor - 241
    BSB - Beast Banner
    Slug Skin
    Hvy Arm
    Shield

    Core
    I have an ambush setup for the shooty dwarves and dark elves
    Gor Herd x20 - 185
    FC
    AHW

    Gor Herd x20 - 185
    FC
    AHW

    Ungor Herd x20 - 184
    FC
    Ungrol four Horn

    Special

    Bestigor Herd x 20 - 300

    So thats it (pretty much because thats all the models I own)

    Just realized I forgot to mention, both general and GBS bunkered with the Bestigors
    And when I'm fighting the tough blocks of melee stuff (like thw WoC or Ogres) I would sitch to one block of 40 gors instead of the two blocks which I would use if they are playing shooty armies (like that guy and his dwarven gun line, I hate organ guns.)

    For a first try it's fairly good.

    First of all, a BSB cannot have a shield (but can have stuff like Halberds for some reason). Instead of saying that you'll merge units up agains x army it's better to make a single list that can take all comers, if your army isn't resilient enough to take all threats then it should be changed so it can.

    I'm not all that familiar with Lore of Beasts (I only use it for Wildform) but I'm fairly sure that your Fetish won't be all that much help with it, if you were using Lore of the Wild, however, it would be brilliant, getting re-rolls for Bray Scream and Viletide will wreck units.
    As for your Core section I'm not entierly sure about the Ungor herd, sure, they have Four-Horn, but for those points you could boost both Gor units up to 30, making them Hordes and much more dangerous.
    Speaking of Hordes, I would strongly reccomend using 30 Bestigors, against infantry of the same calibre they tend to take casualties that a unit of 20 can't cope with, again a Horde will benefit you more. Also, I would drop the Beast Banner and get a level 1 Shaman, your Bestigors are already plenty strong, I would also get rid of the gift on the Gouge-Horn, he probably won't use a 3+ save...additionally, I would reccomend the Manbane or Flaming Banner on the Bestigors, they're geting Fury re-rolls so shouldn't need the extra point of leadership.

    If you're worried about gunlines that's nothing the good Raider won't solve, or harpies if you want a more reliable investment.

    Hope this helps.

    It does, The only reason I dont have more in is because I dont own more and this was kind of a big investment for me so itll be a while before I can add to it, so the numbers up there is all I have.

    Actually, our BSB's can have shields. I wouldn't take Slug-Skin, Gnarled Hide gives you a 2+ armor save when combined with heavy armor and a shield, and Gouge-Tusks gives you a handy -1 armor as well. Gors also like big units, so I'd make a 40-man Horde out of that, and put the BSB in it. I also wouldn't bother with normal Ungors, or with Ungrol Four-Horn - I'd field those Ungors as Raiders (2 units of 10 ), and put the Beast Banner on your BSB (gives your Gors Strength 4, and still lets you use your Gifts of Chaos - everyone wins!)

    As far as magic goes, I really recommend the Lore of Death for your GBS, especially with the setup you have.

    Sure, man. I can tell you this works pretty well, as I use all of what I said myself.
