    Hi all,

    Just found a tourney happening down my way and I was wondering what you think of the following list. No idea of what I'll be coming up against, but I'm hoping that the list I have is rather well rounded for all comers anyway. Any suggestions / help here would be appreciated!

    Heroes

    Borgut (175)
    Black Orc Big Boss, Heavy Armour, Great Weapon. (8
    Black Orc Big Boss, Heavy Armour, Great Weapon. (8
    Black Orc Big Boss, Heavy Armour, Choppa, Armour of Gork, Enchanted Shield. (125)

    Core

    22 Orc Big Uns with choppas, shields and full command. (204)
    22 Orc Big Uns with choppas, shields and full command. (204)
    22 Orc Big Uns with choppas, shields and full command. (204)
    23 Orc Boyz with choppas, shields and full command. (Borgut leads this unit) (166)
    5 Orc Boar Boy Big Uns with full command & Banner of Butchery. (17
    5 Orc Boar Boy Big Uns with full command & Waaagh! Banner. (183)

    Special

    Orc Boar Chariot with Extra Crewman. (86)
    Orc Boar Chariot with Extra Crewman. (86)
    Orc Boar Chariot with Extra Crewman. (86)
    Orc Boar Chariot with Extra Crewman. (86)

    Rare

    Effigy of Gork. (40)

    Total: 1,999

    What do you think? :hmm:

    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    Looks like a solid list. Only army I think you might have trouble with is Bretonnians (but then, who doesn't?). Maybe a pair of spear chukkas instead of one of those chariots would be good, just to scare him a bit (and rank penetrating is nice against Brets...).

    Also, no black orcs with great weapons? Sorry, I just love those models. Guess the black orc heroes is good enough, though.
    Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.

    The plan with Brets is to receive charges and counter charge with boars / chariots. The bait and run rarely works with their huge movement. :wacko: A big boss and unit champion in each unit will hopefully be able to swing CR in my favour, even on a charge!

    Spear chukkas are a nice idea, and I was actually thinking that 4 of the suckers would be nice (still room for 2 boar chariots) and it would allow me to add a couple more models to the block units... but I like the idea of no gobbo's in my army!

    No black orcs either unfortunately, I can't justify the points cost despite how awesome their weapons look. A small unit of 10 would be good as flankers, but I think boar boyz and chariots will do an adequate job here! For 50% more points per model, I'll remain happy with my big un orcs!

    Mmm, love boars! The way I see it, we're having a BBQ win or lose. Pork if we lose... non-pork if we win!

    Didn't even occur to me that 4 chariots might be considered cheesy... any other thoughts on this? If anything I thought it might be a bit risky as a good cannon / stone thrower shot will reduce it to kindling wood!

    My army's painted up with a pretty nomadic feel, so the idea is that it's a nomadic force (same with my gobbo guys actually) that can pick up and move at the drop of a hat.

    Naw, chariots are pretty risky after all. S7 hit and they're smashed, that's not cheesy in any way
    You sure you can use special characters in this tourney? You normally can't.
