Hey, im a new player to warhammer, and have an army of about 1500 pts.
The models i have is: Boar chariot, bfsp, i regiment of orc boyz, giant, the box with 2 boss models.
Im wondering what i need to make the army more complete? I was thinking of fanatics or some kind of ranged unit, but what? Or am i way out of line? What other units might suit my army better?
Thanks for replies.
Fanatics, shamans and another mob of boyz. Thats pretty much what I'd add to make it up to 2000. You'd have a warboss, BSB, NG shaman, orc shaman, 2 NG units w spears and fanatics (make them up to 30 if you can by slipping in those archers at the back), 19 boyz in turtle (HW/S), 19 big uns, chariot, giant, then whatever you want to fill out the rest of the points should be pretty powerful.
Fanatics can be useful, although they tend to lend themselves to more of a fun random chaotic army Either way, they're a great choice. Although not too many...
A Gobbo Wolf Chariot may be good, faster than the Orc one and hits almost as hard. Cheaper pts wise too.
A couple of Spear Chuckers could be handy to make enemy Knights watch their flanks, but don't rely on them to hit too often. They're cheap though, so if they can make your opponant go where you want them, its points well spent. Gobbo launchers and Stone Throwers are less useful overall and take up key army slots.
Squig units maybe? Again, fun, a little random, but can be very nasty. A small unit of Hoppers and maybe some Herders could be useful.
To be honest, the best advice i could give is to go with your instinct. Choose units that you like, or that you want to play with, or that you want for whatever reason (be they powerful/fun/etc). Build an army this way and you should come out with your ideal army list.
I forgot the bolt throwers- never leave home without a pair of these!
So... squigs, fanatics and bolt throwers. I like the idea of that! Crazy and unpredictable right?
Kinda suits me aswell as i dont really care if i win or lose
Wolf riders are always good with the movement 9. Which is also why I love the gobo chariot. Reach out and smash someone!

Baby boys are like free bulldozer rental tickets. You have no idea what you're going to do with them but you know they are awesome!
As a Skaven player, of all the units in the O&G repository, I dreaded Stone Troll's the most, as they are effective shock troops plus their magic resistance was to be feared.
So i would go with Stone Trolls.
Trolls can be pretty expensive if you want a lot of them, and tend to need babysitting. I often don't use them unless I have the spare points for one basic troo to be an annoyance. 1 basic troll by himself is pretty cheap.
yeah from a real world economic standpoint ,yes I hear troll's will cost you some $$$.
From a Warhammer world perspective, in my experience, Troll's were a very dreaded opponent.
I ended up buying the fanatics.
Just came back from playing half a game against a friend of mine. Fanatics really spice things up, one took out 5 cold ones in my friends dark elf army. The other 2 hurt som core troops pretty bad, meanwhile my giant is crushing his hydra. We'll be finishing the game tomorrow after work!
Another question tho. Is it possible to play well (in the long run) with out shooting units? Or are they a must have?
