Hi there everybody, I'm new to O&G (but not to warhammer, I also collect high elves) and wanted to start with a fairly simple 500 point army - I usually only have time for about an hour of play so this fits right in. This is what I've come up with:
Orc bigboss on boar, light armour, enchanted shield, martogs best basha - 118
10 orc boyz, additional choppa, full command - 100
5 spider riders, bows, full command - 100
20 night goblins, bows, full command, fanatic - 105
wolf chariot - 60
Hopefully the bigboss will survive on his own with a 2+ armour save, but I'm a bit concerned that only the orcs will do any good in close combat. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Consider dropping full command on the spider riders and night goblin archers. A musician is all that is needed. Use the extra point to boost up the orc block.
Also, dont expect you NG archer to actualy kill somthing.
get rid of the full command on the night gobbo bow unit it wont kill much and its just another banner to be captured they are really just fanatic delivery systems when you take 20 with bows and the big bosses save is 3+ not 2+ but with toughness 5 not much will even scratch him at this points level
i very much recommend more fanatics they are very very effective in a 1000 point battle against vampire counts 6 of my fanatics took out more than half his army and left his army generals unit in pieces i then killed his general and his army crumbled
Light Armour = 6+
add enchanted shield (+2) and that's a 4+ save
then the boar (adds +2 as well, since it's thick-skinned) and that leaves...
Nope. He got it right the first time; it's a 2+ Armour Save. I checked the book.
Switching the chariot out, as well as the stand. & champ. in the NG and Spider Rider units, might enable enough room for another NG unit (or a couple Spear Chukkas). Just my personal opinion.
