Welcome to Librarium Online!
Can anyone give a few suggestions on a 1000 pt orcs and gobbo army for a 1000 pts please? ideally id like to keep the cost down but if thats not poss then thats fine, so far i have an orc boyz box set and a night gobbo box set, any ideas please? basically i need to know the minimum unit size that can still be effective bith for my orcs and my fanatic delivery night gobbos?
im not being intentioanlly lazy but im getting a lot of mixed messages from reading the posts on here so any help would be greatly appreciated, btw is it wort equipping some night gobbos with bows or would this be useless as i want them mainly to deliver fanatics?
What you need to make 1000p armies with a little choice but keeping the cost down (i.e the essentials):
Around 50 orc boyz, 40-60 gobbos with 3-6 fanatics, 5-10 gobo wolf riders, 1-2 gobo shaman, 1-2 orc big bosses, orc boar chariot or 2 wolf chariots, and 1 rock lobber or 2 spear chukkas.
Do not buy:
Arrer boyz, black orcs, boar boyz, trolls, orc shaman, orc boss on wyvern.
Savage orcs, snotlings, snotling pump wagon, giant, goblin doom diver, gobo big bosses.
I wouldn't recommend orcs/goblins for keeping the cost down. generally orc/goblins needs lots of figures in units, which can involve buying multiple boxes. My night gobo purchases so far are
4 boxes night gobo's
2 boxes wolf riders
1 box black orcs (shouldn't have bought these, looking pretty on the shelf)
4 spear chukkas (solid!
1 wolf chariot
1 squig (wolf) chariot converted from beastman one on sale (Y)
1 Pump wagon
Total: $200+, even though most came in a stores going out of business sale.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
I'm recommend at least an rock lobba mikey2505. If your good at math my main man you will be pro with da lobba. And plus chicks dig it too.

GET ER DONE!
IF you want if really cheap, stick to infantry blocks, have 1 unit upgraded to big Uns.
Wolf riders aren't too expensive and are really good for screening and taunting.
If you don't want to buy a boss, make one with the many bitz from the orc regiment, make sure he stands out.
Savage orcs are way too expensive for a small budget.
Here's a relatively cheap 1000 pts list.
Black orc big boss 114 pts
Great Weapon, Dead 'Ard Armour
35 Night Goblins 200
30 Orc Boyz 238 pts
30 Orc Big Uns 298 pts
Orc Chariot 80 pts
2 Spear Chukkaz 90 pts
