should i get the orc battalion
Do you want to make a balanced O&G force, a bit of orcs, a bit of goblins?
do you want the orc battalion?
bit more info needed. How do you want to play, Do you want a NGobbo horde? or an orc heavy army? or even a shooty/magicky army? This will help answer your question.
well i have 10 black orcs already and if i get the goblins in the battalion i would not get anymore im going to go more for the orcs
I personally consider the batallion and the BFSP to be v similar, with BFSP coming out on top. You already have all the spider riders you should need, as well as a good amount of gobbos. For £51 you can get 38 orcs and 10 black orcs. Thats probably a better move for you right now.
the problem is i dont have any netters
but i do have three fanatics do i need any more?
Fanatics all day every day! they win games buy three for every units of night goblins.
Both netters and fanatics are useful. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any of the old netters online, so you may have to get a whole new box of ng to get some. Its not all bad though, as it means you can get rid of the standard bearer for your archers and make a unit with hw/s. I personally also took all the champions from the other units and replaced them with netters, just using a regular spear guy as a champion in that unit.
Fanatics rock, but you've got to be able to use them well too.
And you will at some point want more N.gobbo's - £ 18
(Specifically to take the standard Bearer out of the archers, add a extra 5 gobbos to each Skull Pass unit, with or without Netters)
= £ 36 individually
So for the extra £ 14 you get:
Spider Riders, A Chariot, and 4 extra orcs
Mind you, If you go to a sales website (e.g. Gifts for Geeks) you can probably get 25% off, so get some snazzy units as well as the boyz.
There will be postage. Is there travel costs to a GW store for you?
You will never need two battalion boxes, or the battalion and the £ 100 army.
In my opinion the choice depends on how much cash you have available, and how soon you must have it.
