Well, I have recently bought the O&G Brigade set and my main opponent is a Bretonnian fanatic! (grrr...) So, I'm looking for a 2,000 point army that will kill him nicely, and have fun at the same time!
NOTE: An asterix (*) is placed next to a unit I HAVEN'T Bought.
* Night Goblin Warboss on Squig
Marthog's Best Basha
Bigged's Kickin Boots
Amulet of Protectyness
M WS BS S T W I A Ld
4 6 3 5 4 3 6 5 7 - Night Goblin Warboss
3D6 4 0 5 4 3 3 3 3 - Great Squig
( I was either going to have this guy or a level 4 Shaman, and I'm still deciding!)
(HAVE)Orc Black Orc Big Boss….(Heavy Armour) (Shield) (boar).
(HAVE)Orc Big Boss w/ standard: (Heavy Armour) (Magic Banner)
(Magic Standard is "The Spider Banner") (50 points)
(HAVE)Night Goblin Shaman - Level 2 Wizard
* (NEED)Goblin Doom Diver Catapult
*(NEED)Goblin Rock Lobber with Bully
(HAVE)20 Black Orcs...(Musician/Standard Bearer/Champion)
(HAVE)Orc Boar Chariot
(Extra Crew Member.)
(HAVE) 2 Goblin Spear Chukkas
(HAVE)40 Orc Boyz.... (2 Musicians/2 Standard Bearers/2 Champions)(shields)
(Note: These orcs are in 2 squads of 20!)
*(NEED)20 Night Goblins…(Musician)(2 Fanatics)
(HAVE)20 Night Goblins…(spears)(Musician and Champion)(2 Fanatics)
(HAVE)20 Night Goblins….Short Bows (No extra Cost) (Musician and Champion)(2 Fanatics)
(HAVE)10 Goblin Wolf Riders: (Mucician and Boss)
(HAVE)10 Goblin Spider Riders: (Bows)(Musician and Boss)
NOTE: Both spider riders and wolfies are in squads of five.
ENEMY'S ARMY (Has Battalion Set plus Heroes and treb and grails)
Two level 2 Damsels (1 on horse) (Uses Lore of Life and likes making trees come to life....)
Paladin on Pegasus - he has 2+ armour and 4+ Ward Saves (I Hate him!)
BSB - I'm assuming heavy armour etc.
20 Men-at-arms (with full command)
2 x 9 Knights of the Realm (where BSB and mounted Damsels go in.) (Has twilight Banner?)
16 Peasant archers (Full command) (He likes them in skirmish..)
NOTE: I haven't versed his treb or grails yet)
He upgrades all his guys with ward saves and whatnot, so they can be very hard to kill.
So...what do you guys think?
Thanks for any advice!
PS: If you want me to post how our last game went, I'll be happy to!

well against brett i think your fanatics are going to do great work!The whole list looks like a good way to get rid of shiny pinkskins
- Definetly bring that boss with giant squig, but have a look at his items.
characters may only use one magic item of each kind. So one magic weapon and one magic talisman.
i would actually suggest using Shaga's Screaming Sword against him. he has a small army and his characters will be near his units.
- I also dont think an orc may use a spider banner. it is goblins only
-Tthe skirmish unit will be annoying. if you charge them, do it with 2 units at the same time, he can only stand and shoot to one.
- You can use the artillery to take on his pegasus so he only gets his ward saves. and the fans will protect your units against those pesky cavalry.

I was also wondering if this army would be any good in competitions (Tournaments and the like.) I like your advice, and so here are my changes :
Night Goblin on Squig has Best Basha, Kickin Boots and Amulet from original lisitings so it's legal
I'll give a gobbo the BSB and give it the Raggedy Banner so I can re-roll failed Panic tests. (Very useful when last game my 20 NGs with 2 fans were targeted with everything and nearly ran!)
Should I give him a spear or sword? I've heard you get +1 str on the charge with a spear, but that might be incorrect.
Should I upgrade my Orcs to groups of 25? Give my other chars chariots, magic items etc, etc.....?
Well, if I change my orc BSB to a gobbo BSB and give him the Raggedy banner, I'm sitting at 1963 pts...
What should I get for 40pts? (I can take a NG out (3pts) to make room for a shaman!
Any advice from anyone would be great thanks!
more spear chukka's!!
if you have 4 or even 6 of them, you'll get 2 bolts of each turn, killing 4-6 knights a turn. and that for less than 150-200 points!
ow and about the +1 strength on the spear... you only get that when you are mounted and charging. on foot you can fight in 2 ranks.

You might want to give the night goblin the tricksy trinket and try to get in combat with his general
The rest of your list looks pretty good though, good luck.
WOOPS! BAD NEWS! My opponent is deciding to take the green knight in his army as his general, and from what I've heard, he's a pain!
Just another Question: I'm planning on entering tournaments with 2,250 pt. forces each player. But I'm pondering, what should I get for 250 points? I could put a character on the chariot, freeing up a special choice - and although spear chukkas are great, there would only be 70pts of them...
I was planning on boar boys, or upgrading my wizards and gear, but I need to create a powerful army that actually has some chance of winning anything
All comments and reponses would be great thanks guys!
if you can use special characters (i guess so since your foe deploys the green knoob) i would suggest skarshnik. Sneaky Schemes in combination with some artillery, you will have alot of extra time to shoot his knights to bits.
- about the special slot: you could go for something cheap like bolt throwers, and add a unit savage orc big uns.

And...how would this army fare in a 2,000 / 2,250pt. Tournament?
