Ive recently bought a orc boys box, i assembled 15 from the 19 possible, i put them together as so, full command and then 12 with shields and spears. Whats the difference between them using a spear to say a sword or axe? Which is better
I can't say which is better but know this: you won't get the extra handweapon+shield save when fighting with spears, but you get more attacks.
But orcs dont get the handweapon+shield save anyway because they are fighting with choppas, which are too clumsy, as stated in the Orc&Goblin special rules.
how do u think as a basic start to my army would go,
Orc Warboss - unsure of equipment , pretty basic tho
Orc or possible Night Gobin shaman
15 orc boyz full command spears n shields
15 orc boys full command 2x ccw ( sword and axe )
40 night goblins wiht some netters/fanatics full command
30 night goblins full command netter/fanatics
2x spear chukas
Sounds good, a rather large army. That'd do well for a nice starter. Welcome to LO BTW. ^_^
Sound pretty good for a starting force. You might want to expand with some more exotic stuff (war machines, trolls, giants etc), as these are helpful and fun to use, but you have a solid selection there.
Never drink more than 2 Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters unless you are a thirty-ton Mega Elephant with brocal pheomonia!
sound ok but as zaphod said add some more exotic things to the army to confuse your opponants
Yes people i know that my spelling and punctuation is awful but I am product of British teaching pollicies so what can I do about it?
iv been playing orcs for 3 years, that list is pretty good
Id take a night golbin shaman onlyif u have fanatics, so u can give them madcap musrooms.
if no fanatics take orc shaman. make sure its a ORC SHAMAN not a savage orc shaman! well thats all i can thik of goodluck
Youy do know this topic is over a month old right?
never noticed that..........
Take Savage orcs with spears and warpaint.....Nasty

own tactics--that is what the multitude cannot comprehend.
