    Help deciding: Black Orcs / Regular Orcs / Other

    Good day friends,

    As I have posted before, I've just started a O&G army, and our WHFB community is still on it's first steps so the armies are really not that big. We're currently playing 750 - 1000 points games.

    I have the opportunity (Christmas) to buy something extra for my army. I can't really spend too much money, and I'm looking for advice on what to buy. My budget is around US$ 55, and I'm looking for the best "bang-for-your-buck"

    I'll use the official prices from the US Games Workshop website as a reference.

    I'm thinking in this options:

    - 2 Black Orc regiments. US$ 50.oo 20 models total
    - 1 Orc Boyz regiment + 1 G. Spear Chukka. US$ 52.oo 23 models total (inc. warmachine)
    - 1 Orc Boyz regiment + 1 Black Orc regiment. US$ 60.oo (a bit over-budget) 29 models total.

    What do you think ? I looked at the Savage Orcs too (US$ 40.00 ) but I think I'll need at least 20+ of the guys to make a difference, and I'm definitely not ready to spend over eighty bucks right now... Or are the 10 guys worth it ?

    Please, I could really use your advice as how to spend the hard earned holiday cash . Thank you very much for your answers.


    Regards.

    I would say to buy the black orc regiment, test them out and then either buy another one, or buy a boyz regiment depending on whether you like the idea of using black orcs or not.

    Yeah, get a boyz unit for now to use as big uns. If you use them and like them, get black orcs. Spear chukkas are useful, but it depends what type of army you want.
