hey guys, I'm thinking of starting an O&G list and already painted some 5man squig herd that i had lying around (hilarious models) and i was wondering if anyone had any idea's for the first few units i should buy.
to be more specific does anyone have some idea's on solid- nobrainer units choices that you never leave without? good idea's for bosses are also very welcome.
all in all i just want an idea where i can start building my army because there are alot of options but i have no idea what works or not. Is O&G still a competive army? I've have played them twice with my WoC but i don't know how well they work in serieus games.
some help would be really appreciated!
Orcs and gobbos canbe very diverse
im more into goblins myself, some are all rounders and some only play orcs.
heres some stuff that most basic armies i know deploy (almost by default):
+ 5 wolf riders, one being a musician.
+ 2 spear chukka's
+ a rare choice. theyre all very cool, never heard anyone regret bringing their rare from Orcs & Goblins
+ a few fanatics and a nightgoblinregiment to carry them ( maybe the Skull Pass box)
+ a bunch of Orc boyz, either with 2 choppas or a shield... or both...
i would suggest you decide what to do with your army (theme) before saying what characters are good. a boar mounted big boss is a solid choice.
can allways deploy the sexiest models you find Have you seen the new Azhag?
if you have alot of goblins a black orc would be fun, he stops animosity and gives them a high leadership.
dont forget a shaman or two, night goblin shaman are cheap choices to help against enemy magic, while savage orc shamans can be scary casters.

I would suggest some simple things like a couple of units of Orc Boyz, a unit of Black Orcs, a rare unit and maybe an Orc Boar Chariot. If you add a unit of some form of goblin you'll have a strong starting point here with some various options.
Hope this helps
The chukkas are a no-brainer. They're excellent and they're CHEAP (points-wise) ! Remember to get at least two of them.
Buy a Boar Chariot. They're VERY cheap (dollar$-wise) on ebay and they really rock ! If you can find it, buy a Wolf Chariot too.
Finally, I'd buy a Doom Diver if I was you. That catapult is just great for its points.
Hope it helps !
