    I would be a bit concerned that the most expensive unit is also most prone to buggering off. But saying that they do make a good meat shield.

    Maybe swap goblin unit for a couple of wolf/spider riders??

    Nice army to start with though.

    Let me start off by saying:
    Even in 1.000 point battles, the first thing i would buy is a Battle Standard Bearer, having a general is just icing on that cake.

    If thats out of the question, then:
    For three extra points you could replace the shield on your big boss for the Charmed Shield .
    You could also spend your remaining 5 points on buying the Ironcurse Icon for shaman maybe. (enchanted items)

    I'd also be a bit worried about the high cost of that 35 goblin unit, with 8 leadership at its very best. especially because you have no BSB!



    Your general is in a support unit (Boar boyz). Daz a bit risky but it can bring some good punching. Just restrain him from charging infantry all by themselves, theyre really still just support that rely on having the charge and theyre no match for a larger ranked up unit


    I think (apart from my BSB opinion) that you covered all the bases well
