Played two 3k point games vs VC yesterday and just had the tar beat out of me. I had Grimgor (did very well) and four level 2 shamans (two orc and 2 goblin). Then a generic orc big boss with my battle standard.
Learned the hard way that even four shamans is not going to give you any kind of a reliable magic phase. Even if I had not had three miscasts and numerous squabbling blocks of green-skins where my casters resided. The VC player just has to many dispell dice. My initial reasoning was something to try to stop his ethereal units, but maybe characters with magic weapons may work a little better. I was also hoping that a shaman heavy list would allow for a solid magic defense, but I think there are better ways to achieve that.
Thanks in advance.
