    The gobbo units are too small. drop one spear unit to combine them, give it 3 fanatics, and retro-fit the spare fanatic to the bow gobbos.

    Ironback boars are pretty useless. I wouldn't use it if I were you. I would then allocate the spare points to make the boar boyz savage, give the warboss porko's pigstikka, put him in the newly savage orcs boar unit.

    I would also drop the collar of zorga, as with a warboss's high toughness/WS you really don't need to worry about creature attacks at S5 and below.

    Another thing to drop would be the troll. Trolls are only useful in big (4+) units.

    Looking through the O&G book, noone can take powerstones, Don't know where you got that, but drop the shaman down to 60 points on the list.

    Finally, get a good sized unit of orc big 'unz by dropping the squig hoppers (nothing against them, but your army need another ggod fighting block) and if you can afford them, dual choppas. Drop the full command on everything, and just keep the musician.

    Hope this helps!

    Ironback boar aint that great, a lot of points for a mount.

    Night gobo shamen with powerstone and magic mushroom 75pt

    3 MM is cheaper, more flexible and more chance of blowing yourself up. 3 positives.

    CORE
    night gobos x20 with spears,netter full comand and 2 fanatics 180pt

    night gobos x20 with bows and full command 80pt

    night gobos x20 with spears full command net and 2 fanatics 180pt

    Combine the spears into about 30 to 35 and take out the command on the bows. Maybe keep a musician.

    SPECIAL
    or boar boisx5 with full command and gorks waggghh banner 163pt
    Good, but 6 or 7 is better. 7 is optimal.

    2 goblin spear chukas 70pt

    night gobo squig hoppers x5 75pt
    All good here

    RARE
    troll 40pt
    Fun, works better in a unit of 2 as they cancel ranks if you flank. 3 is about as big as I'd go, especially with the stupidity.

    thanks any help appreciated
    No boyz at all? Do you really need the Boar boyz or could you swap them out for some boyz? I'd prefer a unit of big uns in there to help tie the force together rather than a unit of boar boyz gallavanting off breaking cohesion. As for savage orc boar boyz, I would say this is a no go- frenzy is difficult to play well.

    your not aloud a warboss in an army under 2000pts

    ng shamen
    3xmagic mushrooms 80pt
    good choice

    CORE

    ngx30 with spears net x2 fanatic and full command 225pt
    good choice core choices

    ngx20 with bows a fanatic and full command(because i dnt wana buy more of these guys i gt them out BFSP) 105pt

    Orc boisx19 big uns sheilds and musicaian 195pt

    SPECIAL

    orc boar boiz x5 command and gorks waggghhh banner 163pt
    should pack a hefty punch

    goblin spear chucker x2 70pt
    should provide some decsent fire power!

    squig hoppers 75pt
    good

    all in all a good army good choice in the core section.goblins archers are ok but don`t rely on them to win for you because half of the time they will miss!I also reccomend if you want a legal gw army you change the warboss to a big boss.
