Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi. I havent been here a long time, illness made me go offline for about 4 months and i lost track of some things. Well, i`m back.
At the very early stages of starting a Orc & Goblin army, ive got a few pieces of ebay so far.
Heres what i physically have now;
3 Trolls - `Triplet` trolls, 3 of the plastic ones from the Battle for Skull Pass set.
5 Night Goblin Spearmen - One of the trolls was late so he gave these for free as compensation. lol
I`m waiting for these models now, paid for them and just waiting for them to arrive;
Night Goblin Shaman - Hero to lead, i just went for night goblins to join the freebie ones.
20 Night Goblin Spearmen.
20 Night Goblin Bowmen.
3 Night Goblin Fanatics.
I did try for a BIG model, a Orc on a Wyvern, but i was outbid.
Around the end of the month i will have more money and was thinking about buying the £100 box full of Orcs and Goblins, though i can get it for around £80.
Then to start assembling/painting seriously.
Welcome back, I hope your illness has since abated.
Those big sets are always a good buy. They allow you to get a decent force running, and you can save a nice amount of money too.
I don't think you're asking any questions, so I'll wish you good luck with your force, and await pictures.
Well, ive been playing with other armies for a while, so i know the rules. Ive even played against Orcs & Goblins, so i know them a bit. Dont have any questions about them right now, if i do theres plenty of posts here, or i`ll ask myself later.
I`m mainly here to say im back and heres what im doing. Its a bit of a change for me, ive not really done anything close to horde army. First army was dwarfs, then i did a tzeentch heavy mortal chaos army, then a brief stab at wood elfs. What i like about O & G is the hordy and the variety in the units youi can have.
Will try to keep this updated, i do have a camera though its not very great, and it will probably be a while before i get anything painted. Currently only thing painted is one of the trolls.
Skaven is still the undisputed master of horde, though. Orcs can't shoot at their own troops, unfortunately!
I know. Point i was making was that its more hordy than other armies ive played.
I think its best of both worlds, best comprimise if you will. All the ranked units, skaven slaves/clanrats/stormvermin are all T3 right, and apart from monsters its all a bit samey. You got rats doing this, rats doing something different, and big rats. Rats ahoy basically.
Orcs and Goblins got more variety by defenition, some nice T4 troops and cheapo T3 ones.
I almost did collect skaven at one point. But, it wasnt going to be a horde army, it was a Eshin army out of the storm of chaos book. Never started it though. Only time ive played with skaven has so far been in mordheim. lol
I cant resist getting stuff via ebay.
Currently im bidding on a lot that consists of Skarsnik and Gobbla plus the Night Goblin Hero on Great Squig. And, trying again on another Orc on Wyvern lot. lol
Tell me how you ant to use the wyvern?
At first i want to use as something to look at....
Then, when ive got a big enough army, i figure to bring it out occasionally as a suprise, certainly not use it all the time. Ideally in at least a 3000 point game, so i got another lord as general, possibly i might use it in 2000 but that would mean your general is liable to be off away from the battle line where your army needs his leadership.
To be honest ive not used big flyers, dragons or wyverns, much before this. Closest i came was ages ago when i had dwarves and they could take unridden monsters. In that case it wasnt any relation to the general and as such was free to go and kill stuff without too much thought. Had a few games like that, before i unfortunately dropped it, will be careful i dont do that with the wyvern, lol. Other than that its been a case of see big flyer, in opponents army, and try to kill it, ive been successful landing stones on quite a few dragons heads.
Wyverns can be pretty cool if used effectively. I've long been an advocate of putting a great shaman on a wyvern with waaagh! paint, shaga's screaming sword and the amulet of protectyness. This means I can have a Ld 8 general (OK not as good as Ld 9 but still better than 7 to 5!) and a fighting "machine" chopping about with war machines/heavily armoured knights next to characters of heavy infantry of the same ilk.

Dunno if anyone can help me with this...
I`m bidding, on ebay, for Skarsnik and a Night Goblin hero on Great Squig.
Problem is that the auction ends at about 4am my time, i cant stay up for end to be sure i got it, trying to work out what this sorta thing goes for so i can set a reasonable bid. So, what do you think, in $?
