Welcome to Librarium Online!
What is the most effective way to use 60 gnoblars, I'm tossing up between 2x30 or 3x20 but cannot decide, due to their slower speed does anyone find the gnoblars an effective screening unit? Or should I take larger units for the combat Res?
I would use 3 squads of 20 as gnoblars are great units and they will already boost combat res by a lot in squads of 20.
The more units you have the better. During set-up a unit of gnoblars can be placed and your opponent still has no clue what your strategy is. Use them as sacrifice units. And with 3 you can see where you opponent is deploying before you have to place some of your more valuble ogres.
Hope this helps

Nurgle Possesed Ravenwing Army, The Rottenwing - 2000 Pts
I would say 2x30, as its pretty easy to kill gnoblars and force a panic test from shooting.
