A rock lobber

I've had A LOT of success with O&G in my local community. My army is respected and I've learned to play with the greenskins, use our advantages and accept our (few) weaknesses. I'm by no means an "expert" or "power player" but I'd like to contribute with my (limited) knowledge.
Get more ORCS for your army. "Vanilla" orcs are great ! Although the NGobbos are really cool, they're just there for support and fanatic-delivery. IMHO the real "anvil" for our army are the orc boyz. Play them in units of 22 - 24 models and put a BO character in them (mounted or on foot) to minimize animosity.
Get at least TWO spear chukkas. They're cheap and if you have at least moderate luck in your dice, they are DEADLY. Depending on your game size, buy 2, 4 or more !
If you want to play fanatics a lot: go crazy with them ! Put two of them in NG units of 20 archers ! Then protect your flanks with them and cause mayhem ! I'm a little cautious about "too much fanatics" but that's just me... If you want to use them, give them a try !
Buy a Doom Diver ! Really, that thing is just GREAT against HE, WoC, DE, WE. Is great against almost anything ! You already have the rock lobba so you can swap the DD when you face against other O&G or dwarves (among others).
Use your light cavalry (spiders). Play one, two or more (depending on size) units of 5 spiders with a musician. Use bows if you like it. They are GREAT units and very versatile. If you can, try to get a 5 gobbo-wolf-rider unit too.
Finally, if you want, try one of the newest ideas I've seen: field a big troll unit with a mounted character in them to prevent stupidity ! No animosity, regen, MR (for stone trolls) and they hit like a ton of bricks ! I just have one troll model so I'm speaking "theoryhammer" here They've been working great for a lot of other people though...
That's what I can contribute, I hope it helps you. Let me know if it worked out, and you started whipping some undead arse
Best regards !
owww thanks :]
I went to buy sum wolf riders last nite n foolishly eneded up with a chariot as well mmm dam all those tempting shineys at eye level
how big ig big when it comes to troll units? 5ish?
Marmite, sorry for hijacking your thread, but i was curious about Lord_Vipers. L_V, would you mind posting it?
Just acquired some O&Gs myself, ironhide was among them. Would you use him or just a normal BO Warboss? 7 Str 7 attacks with ASF sound pretty darn nice. Have a unit of Black Orcs to put him in.
What kind of hero do you suggest i put in the Troll unit? Would a simple Goblin Big Boss suffice?
As for the troll unit, I occasionally use an orc shaman. I wouldn't really use a gobbo one as their Ld is too poor and stupidity can defeat thier main purpose (while a shaman can still cast spells as long as its just the UNIT that is stupid). It does give a low risk use for the battle brew though.
Didn't you all know that the missing Orc Boy is the extra Boy in the 40k Ork Boyz box?and 19 ( whats with boxs of 19 any ways? =/ ) boys with choppers and sheilds
I suppose 20 gives you 2 units and they can't be doing that!
Armies: (Chaos) Space Marines [1250pts], O&G [2250 pts], OK [1000pts]
Da face of Mork looks down on the Gobbers of da Bwoo Moon, da bestest Gobbos eva.
True. I forgot about him. Darned 40k nickin our orcses!
hmmm, just a quick question with nets, i know you roll for the unit to see if the nets will work or not , assuming that it passes and that your using a 5 wide gobo troop , Does that mean i then get to pick 5 nets to go on targets ? OWWW in if i had two rows of 5 with spears id get 10 nets to throw at people ? :]
No, you may upgrade units not models to have nets. At the start of the combat phase you may opt to use the nets (and can do so any number of times). If you do you roll ONE dice per unit using them. If ant come yup 2+ then you get the bonus (non-stacking). If any fail then that unit gets the drawback.
