    2000 Night Goblins

    Hey guys,
    Just put together a night goblin list, largely using Night Goblins, but has some spiders. Might substitute them out in order to take the army as a more pure Night Goblin list.

    Is there any hints you can give me on what is, or is not a good idea?

    And help would be appreciated.

    Very nice list, big blocks of Gobbos, looks remarkably like my list.

    *scrambles of to look at usual list; gasps; rushes back*

    It is my list (or close enough). I prefer Squig Herds over the Hoppers and the Spiders, but otherwise, a good, solid, and most importantly, fun list.

    Michael.

    PS: Lol, 100 posts.
    Armies: (Chaos) Space Marines [1250pts], O&G [2250 pts], OK [1000pts]

    Grats on the posts Mikel
    on to the 1.000 hehe


    right, im going to be the dork now, cus thas who i am:

    I think your spider rider points are a bit off. it will add up if the standard bearer is instead a musician. Probably just a typo :p

    1993.. thats not 2000... thats enough points to buy another load of goblins! (or maybe a musician for the other spider riders)
    and about dropping the spearmen.. goblin spearmen just look too good on the battlefield to drop em!

    Maybe.
    Seeing as I have a unit of 35 spears, I stick them in 7 across, and 5 ranks back. That way I have 15 attacks before Gobbo's die, which isn't too bad. And they still need to kill 10 before even one rank drops off.

    That's my reasoning, anyway. Who knows what could happen?

    Cheers for the feedback.

    A lot of people say this to me as well, with my all-spears NG army. They might be right but the cost of models is so different (between NG box-sets and BfSP spearmen) that it would be unfeasible to not use them. Plus I have about 120 painted now.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!

    Because they cost a point per goblin (who only costs a few points anyway) for the chance of a handful of feeble S3 attacks. Goblins don't win fights through casualties- usually by out-numbering and hording. 3 units of 30 spearmen costs the same as 4 units of 30 goblins with handweapons, roughly. That extra unit could be much more useful for getting on flanks or supporting another unit. 5 more S3 attacks? Not so handy.

    The only thing that sticks out to me is Rowdy Grott's banner. When I first wrote an all Gobbo list I thought that'd be an essential, but then I thought about it and the most common cause of panic is 25% loss generally. If you're taking units in big enough blocks that shouldn't be too much of an issue, but then vs Empire hellblasters/mortar and Tomb Kings screaming skull catapult then it's sort of invaluable.

    Oh, there is infact another thing that REALLY sticks out at me. Taking a standard on that unit of Spider Riders is a big no no. Far too likely to flee and give VP's to the enemy. Give both units musicians instead, maybe even drop one unit for Wolf Riders instead? Just my preference there to take one of each.

    Take advantage of the access to Magic Mushrooms on your Shamans too. Unless you have atrocious luck then giving your Shamans something to munch on is definitely a good idea.

    Looks like a fun list in general, I've never used an all NG list so I dunno how it'd play out. Who're you're main opponents?
