I don't have the book in front of me but I thought you had to have fewer shamans than fighting characters. Therefore in a 2000 army you can only have 1 shaman.
Also, I didn't think there were savage orcs in the ard boyz army.
If memory serves correctly as well boar boyz are core units rather than special.
And loving your ogres or not, you should have a unit of black orcs in there instead :tongue:
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
Chuck the arrer boyz, replace them with 2 spear chukkaz, and use the extra points for a standard and musician for the savage orcs. The spear chukkaz will kill FAR more then arrer boyz will.
if you have the rules on hand about creating an ardboys army then im all ears
Lurch is right. No Savage Orcs. Which is just as well, as you've failed to factor in the cost of the chariot. Taking for a basic boar chariot, that leaves you with 186 points. Take away the warboss' boar, and that's 210. Which is just enough for a 14-strong unit of Black Orcs with full command and a weapon choice (2 weapons or a great weapon, up to you). With the warboss leading them, they should be well killy! With the Ogres to back them up, it should be pretty sick to watch them in action.
Can a Ardboyz List hire DOW?
To the best of my knowledge, you can have one shaman per black orc. But on a diferent note, this has 5 characters (Blk orc counts 2). The third orc unit has paid for shields but my knowledge of typos says he forgot to write it in. And I would consider taking an Effigy (40 pts, cmon.)I don't have the book in front of me but I thought you had to have fewer shamans than fighting characters. Therefore in a 2000 army you can only have 1 shaman.
ditch the arrer boyz and get the spear chukka's. Replace the savage orcs with chariots.
Take 3 black orc hero's and a lvl 4 orc shaman. Solves the problem with needing more warbosses then shamans and you have a good chance to get Waaagh! Give the lvl 4 the reroll staff.
Put one black orc hero in each of the big uns units making them all 21 large and deploy them 7X3.
Get an Effigy
Grimgor's ardboyz cannot take any dogs of war units so the ogres have to go.
apart from ruglands armoured Orks
