    CORE UNITS

    Orc Boyz (22) – 273 (Warboss goes with this unit)
    Shields, Musician, Standard Bearer, Boss, Noggs Banner of Butchery, Big Uns, Spears

    Orc Boyz (22) – 160 (BSB goes with this unit)

    The idea is to have the 3 big foot-unit close together. And the chariots on the flanks as support. The Boar goes on the flank with the big unit as charging and the smaller one as support. I have a dispel pool of 5

    I am sorry if this is a stupid question I was under the impression that an 'ardboy army had to be led by Grimgor or Facebeater, they are my next army

    That says you dont need grimgor or borgut, but i think borgut is pretty awesome anyways, I would probably run him normally since hes just a hero choice. I was recently looking into ardboyz too, they look like alot of fun.

    Overall i like the list, you got a nice hord of boyz, and you got black orcs to stop animosity. The only thing i have to comment on is the unit of 10 orc boyz with a musiscian. Orcs I find are most effective when in big units of at least 25. A unit of 10 really isn't going to do much except get in the way and be easy pickings for your opponent. With the extra points from those models you could for example, make both your units of boar boyz bigguns and add a crew to a chariot bringing your total points up to 1997. This means the chariot if it charges a unit in the flank would take away their rank bonus and get a bonus for charging in the flank, and you boar boyz got super extra delicious killy power. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside

    Why don't you mount up a caracter on one? This adds is unit strength.

    If you want to save some points and get a good general, You could use Borgut. A free upgrade to big un's means a few points, and he is a tough nut to crack.

    im not sure about that point. cause i posted the question of if you take an orc bully do you get an extra unit strength? and the answer was yes. So... i think it could be reasonable to assume its the same for chariots.:shifty: But i could be wrong so i'll check it up!!
