Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok recently I kinda couldn't help myself and brought 6 boxes of Night Goblins from my local arms dealer (independent stockist to you)
I was considering doing them as an army on their own with some of those awesome Fanatics, then I saw their Leadership and realised it may be a bit of a challenge.
Has anyone done a Night Goblin Army? How well does it work?
The trick is to use the extra heroes in goblin armies. Make sure to put them all in units so they can benefit the better Ld.
As for how they play, they can be good as long as they don't run away, just stock up on shamans and zap the enemy to death, combined with the walls of goblins/warmachines/monsters/fanatics they can do it.
the first thing i ever bought was night goblins and i was doing an all goblin (not all night goblin) army, until my girlfriend, at the time, made it abundantly clear that they were "adorable little darlings"
so, masculinity hurt slightly, i went to dwarves (which i found funner) and the high elves (which i converted to an asian theme) and finally to quitting fantasy and going to 40k.

Like Vindkall said, use the extra heroes you get. Give heroes Nightcap mushrooms (or whatever it's called) to increase the fanatic's damage. A single rank's worth of nets is useful, and maxed out fanatics.
It'd be useful to include a few non-NG things. Like, a goblin doom driver or stone thrower would be handy - just use NG models instead of normal gobbos. A unit of Stone trolls and/or Giant would be handy - fluff on them says they follow O&C armies around for the occasional gobbo snack they can grab.
Ok an update of sorts- all 120 Goblins are now assembled and have been spray painted chaos black (faces and exposed skin done in goblin green)
I'm really tempted to get the Skarsnik model next in addition to the seemingly manditory Fanatics. You see i already have an Orc army but thats more of a Gimgor's Ardboys style list with very few Goblins.
A seperate Goblin army would be ideal
I do an all goblin army myself, mainly because I loathe all the people who create an army made entirely up of giants and fanatics. So, instead of shouting at you, I will tell you why I hate such Armies.
I played against them with dwarves, nuff said.
All fanatic/giant armies are very destructive, however, against very magic heavy opponents you will face a challenge.
On another note, an all night goblin army in black robes will be tedious, boring, and unanimous to the extreme. Not in the gaming spectre, just painting.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

Damn straight, brutha.
All night goblin is going to be cheesy and everyone will hate you for sure.
I'm doing an all-gobbo army, mixing both types of goblins into my army. That way you can get a non-cheesy army you can actually win with. Kinda took the idea from Kraken here. Thanks
Every time you make an all night goblin army with 15 fanatics, god masturbates a kitten.
I'll give you my list as an example of a balanced goblin army if you want. It works well, to my surprise (see my signature).
Why would a NG army be boring? Why because they don't get the fast cav as others do? Who says? Just convert wold riders into Night Gobbs or something. Also the NGs get some great units; squig herds, fanatics... and others
IIRC he was talking about the painting aspect of the army which, yes would get very boring after painting 120 of the little b*stardsWhy would a NG army be boring?
