I have recently decided to switch from 40k to Fantasy and as such I have started 4 armies. O & G, Dwarves, Bretonnia, and Warriors of Chaos. I have one problem with equipping my Orcs. Should I go with 2 hand weapons for the extra attack. Also if I decide to equip them with two hand weapons, can I glue the shield to their back and still count them as having a sheild and 2 hand weapons? Or is this overkill? Any input would be appreciated. Also with Spider Riders are bows or spears better? I will be playing a lot at 1000, so I will have 2 squads of boyz, 1 NG w/ spears, and some black orcs, with shamans etc. I would think some bows would be good, but at a short bow that isnt that great. Just wondered from games what you thought. Thanks for the input.
Armies: 40k: Imperial Guard, Orks Fantasy: Skaven
For the orcs I say put 2 choppaz on them, orcs usually strike last and having a frontage of 11 str 4 attacks the first turn is awsome. sheilds are dumb the extra save is nearly useless against anything accept other units with normal handweapons.
And by all means do not equip them with spears. It makes them look retarded.
