Just curious what you've run into that is super sneaky or particularly effective for taking out your greenskins and how you dealt (or will deal) with them?
My brother plays high elves. They have one spell that damages every model in a unit if successfully cast (I believe its called flames of pheonix, but don't quote me on that). It does S3 first round, S4 next, S5 next, etc.. until you dispel it. Ultimately it DESTROYS my night gobbo horde of 60. Even the first S3 hit takes out almost half of my gobbos. What I was originally doing was holding on to a large number of dispel dice / Staff of sneaky stealin to dispel it. He wised up and our magic phases turned into him rolling max power dice to cast and me rolling max to dispel (which often times resulted in irr. force for him). I tried targetting his mages (whichever had the spell) with my own magic to kill them first but as I'm sure u can imagine out magic-ing a high elves player is not always easy. Next time I think I'll just bite the bullet and break down my horde into multiple groups. Either way - WATCH OUT FOR THIS SPELL AND OTHERS LIKE IT BEING USED VS. YOUR HORDES AND LARGE UNITS.
So what else have ya'll faced that smashed up your boyz pretty good?
Well magic is never fun for a horde. My hordes have been hit with about every kind of horde crushing spell there is - purple sun, dwellerrs below, comet of cassandora - and of course there was the game where i had 3 hordes (night gobbos are cheap ) and in the same turn two where hit by a breath from a hydra each (yep, 2 hydras... sigh) and the last was hit by a black dragon egg breath... i lost way over 60 gobbos in one turn. Ouch. But for some reason the gobbos are able to brush it of and get back into the game, albeit at half capacity, but thats better than running away. Yup, i stick with a orc general for the leadership.
But yeah... magic...
Powah to da Waaaagh
skitterleap + brass orb nearly killing a unit of 6 trolls in turn one. phew. and flagellants. boy they are scary. but yeah, initiative tests are a pain
I faced an orc army with my gobbo's and he used his shamans to snipe my BSb, the eadbutt spell and the ring, my standard was hiding in a big unit but doesnt get no stinkin LookOutSir against 'eadbutt. He had more magic than i and noticed too late that he focussed everything on the BSB so i kept my dispells for too long.
Never underestimate shaman snipers =(
(and use em yourself)
I'm also not leaving home without a lvl 4 EVER AGAIN!
