    ok

    Drog's Dead 'Ard Armour cannot be combined with Light Armour. After all, you can only wear one suit of armour. And the 1+ save it gives cannot be improved, so having more armour and a shield is useless, since your save is maxed out already. Also, only Orcs, not goblins, can wear it.

    The two units of ten are also illegal, since the minimum unit size for goblins is twenty.

    Lastly, you cannot take biguns unless you have an equal number of non biguns of the same unit, so in this case you would also need 20+ orc boyz.

    If you remove Drogs Armour and the Bigun upgrade, You should be much closer to your 1500 point objective. And of course you should combine the two units of bow-armed goblins to form one legal twenty gob unit.

    Coming down to it, the choice between those two items is probably preference. Your list still says Biguns, did you forget to remove it or are they still biguns?

    I don't know what you could do to remove the points. What I would suggest is slightly increasing the size of your goblin infantry units, to 35 or maybe even 40. This is suggested in the Orc army book, since heavy casualties will be sustained by frail goblins, and it's best to have numbers. Besides, 5 goblins costs 15 points.

    yeah my bad.. i've changed the army to a 2000 pts, because i would like those nice black orcs... what about this list? i've tried to take all those nifty items, like aces in the sleeves, to surprise my friends, and for better Ld and to rule the magic face... i migt will ( 9 power dice, enemy -1 dispel)

    the 16 orcs, black orcs and giant is for hitting power,,, chukka's, lobbers, and wolf riders will try to sort out enemy units, before engaging CC..

    This is starting to shape into a competitive army. I rethought my comment on larger goblin units, and I feel that 30 is enough when you have fanatics and netters.

    The army name, 2000 Night Goblins, is misleading. You have a significant orc presence, especially with the addition of the Black Orcs, and it should probably read Greenskin.

    Also, it's important to note that the giant will probably be the target of every missile weapon of your opponents army, since it is quite deadly, has +1 to hit because of large target, and lacks an armour save.

    You can probably change the Night Goblin Infantry to Read full command instead of listing all three components seperately.

    taking care of business

    i've got to back up Khorne Lords point on giants there. Personally i think that giants aren't effective at all, with no armour save or ward save they end up dying quickly so they never get in to combat. In addition to getting killed by missille fire they're idiots who are so stupid they sometimes forget how to sit down, this means they might end up falling on your own units ( which is pretty funny) or they'll stand and do nothing. In the end they usually dont end up get to do what they do best (CC) so i'd just drop the giant altogether. You could use the extra points to add night goblins so it's a more night goblin dominated army again.
    Mmmmm...Snotlings... good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!!

    yeah i thought of the name too... so im thinkin' of removing the orc boys... i mainly just wanted them for (a bit more) hitting power... but if i have the black orcs they'll do it...

    the giant.. i know my friends shooting, and dont fear it much... and the new model is too sweet to leave the camp without!!


    im not sure of the squigs.. what is your oppinions of them?...
