Ok, so finally got some time to write a list after a long summer, but I got stuck when coming to what heroes will help my army the most, always end up writing them all down, and woala I got almost 50% of my points in characters and I think that is overkill for a OnG army right?
Im thinking about an army something like this, plz tell me what u think about the army so far and what of my available characters at the bottom of the post will help me out the most/be really fun and workable to play with and why?
What pointsize would u think will be good to play on with this list?
Also plz let me know what u think about characters in chariots compared to on boars compared to walking on foot in this army.

Cheap BO bigboss with 20 orcs biguns 2 choppas?

Comments and better ideas out there? What would the army benefit most from? why?
Hi Nacher, mind if i drop some thoughts? :p
Your army is big! You spent almost all points on troops and i have no clue how many points remain for characters. Is it 2500 total?
Main reasons for the characters should be about good leadership and a BSB.
BSB: You have either a NG or an Orc on Boar.
A NG BSB with light armour is 57 pts but doesnt bring a proper ldrship to his unit. He does get to roll "Look out sir"
An orc on boar doesnt get to roll LoS in an orc infantry unit, but you could avoid that by bringing the Charmed shield. Which deflects the first cannonball he has to eat (and in a very orcy way, its on a 2+ so all can backfire)
Yes a BSB can bring a charmed shield unless noted otherwise.
A Shaman is also of great great help in this army. I would suggest considering a lvl 4 and a lvl 1 with the sneakystealing staff, or the spirit totem if you bring an orc BSB.
That lvl 4 should go into a unit for cover sake, but it should also have at least 1 black orc to prevent animosity, otherwise your magic can go to hell with a single roll.
Trolls + orc: if you go for an orc on a boar with the Trolls. Perhaps consider bringing one of the cheaper ones instead. You wont get the great weapon, but its a heck of a lot cheaper. Dragonhelm is purrfect on this fella, negating the trolls worst fear, which is fire. Each first flaming hit you can allcate to the orc instead.
Chariot+Character: I dont know how your experiences are with chariots, but where i come from, people tend to focuss their shooting on chariots (and giants) I'd say dont put a shaman on a chariot because it will be a delicious target.
On the other hand, Puttng a fighty char on top means they have to blast both the chariot and the character before any victory points are given. So when a cannon destroys the character, the chariot can hide the battle out for the sake of VP.

Thanks for suggestions digger, good points as usual =)
As for army size I havent decided yet, depends on what size my army will be best.
So it could vary from 2500-3500 depending on how many of the characters to put in there... =)
Unmount my BO BSB, put it with morks spirit totem with my 34 orc boys with shields?
1 NG shaman with staff of sneaky stealing
An ordinary orc bigboss on boar with the trolls instead of a BO one? with dragonhelm
BO warboss with the biguns
3 NG bigboss
This leaves about 150 points to use for more magic items if going for a 3000p army. U think that is a good size or am I better of filling up with more characters and go for 3250 or 3500p?
No one else got any comments? =)
