Erm...why you didnt equiped your warboss with heavy armour???
Instead of all those boyz, you can place a unit of black orcs which are more of a shock troops...
Also, instead of the giant you can place trolls. More attacks, and more wounds!!!!Erm....you can place 4-5 of em i think if you dont upgrade them.
Also, the night gobbos, i prefer them without a standard. Cause they are gonna lose any ways so why giving additional points to the opponent...?
Netters for -1 str for the enemy, with 3 ranks, standard and maybe a charge, thats 5 combat resolution, -1 str for the enemy, and if they charge its 15 attacks back. Wanted to try it out and see if it could work.
Have thought about taking trolls or some pump wagons instead of the giant.
Tryed to ignore the black orcs, with Initiativ as hitting order, i just find em too expensive to put points on, and they would max have 2 attacks with str 5 each , which the Big uns can get too, and +5 armour save aint that biggie in my book.
instead of normal big uns, i have thought about taking em as savage, 3 attacks each when having additional choppa, and with noggs banner, thats 4 attacks in one round each, 6 wide would give 6x4= 24 + 6 from second row = 30 attacks with str 5 in first round of combat.
Thanks for the big reply.
Well as stated, its my first try with the greenskins, and i think i have been thinking too WoC like, by not making units too big.
Warboss's Light armour is a mistake of mine, forgot to remove it after i gave him the armour of destiny.
Took goblin warbosses, for the higher LD (no theme going on, just plain old slaugther hammer)
My Suicide boss, have been thinking about getting some points open for some trolls, which he can hide in, and help em with his LD, and charge out of.
How big would you have the NG units if i keep the spears? Kinda say i dont like the shortbows, as now most unit with some luck can charge em within one shot with the bows.
How would you say, if i upgraded the big uns on foot to savage big uns, still with additional choppa? That would be 4 str 5 each when i blow off the banner.
Think i forgot to update this list, as i gave the second unit 25 on my list will edit to newest when i have made the improvements.
Thought about removing the Boar boyz, as Initiativ is 2, they will allways hit last, and with there bad armour saves, they can be eaten easily :/
Gonna remove giant, and get some free points, maybe to a doom diver more and some more men.
All advices are still welcome, will try out my list on monday maybe, so i can see if it works
What would you say about splitting the herds into 3 units of 2 teams, put em 1 wide, so the enemy can max got 3 20mm units into combat with em, so they prob will go boom!
