Welcome to Librarium Online!
hi i really need asome help on this.
i dont know wether i should get orcs goblins or both
as i would like an all goblin as i wanyt an army with numbers. but the orcs extra leadership and strengh and toughness and all that is a bit much to pass up for a few more pionts .
can you guys help me ?
Well, taking an all gobbo army with orc heroes wouldn't be very fluffy, and you would be seen as cheesy.
I think laying both orcs and gobbos brings more balance, and more fun.
While all orcs, you would play the Ardboyz army list, why is very competitive, and gives you a better chance at victories.
Go more what your inner Waaaagggghhhh tells you to do.
by the extra abilitys i didnt mean orc bosses that would be cheesy ( like those big stupids feet) what i meanr was like just take a few units of them . but i will think about it while painting my first night goblin regiment .
anymore replys would be greatly appreciated
I like playing my O&Gs like I believe they were designed to - ie. Goblins are expendable and support troops while Orcs are the main weapon of the horde.
Do as you'd see fit your playstyle the best ... but I recommend using both.
yea i might take your advice ion thaqt
i still like gobs better but i think orcs are the much needed fighting power
The most destructive orc unit would be savage orc big Uns! try them out.
Definitely both, the army is called "Orcs & Goblins" after all The different types of units can be used very effectively together. Big blocks of orcy boyz with gobbo fast cavalry running around works a treat.
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
"Where Orcs are strong and resilient, Goblins are weak and fragile, so that it is very common for a Greenskin horde to be led by Orcs even if it contains mostly Goblins."Originally posted by Wolf_Pack@Mar 8 2005, 21:58

Straight from GW website
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
ok but say i choose both would 3 units of night gobbos be good to start ?
i coild make 2 units of 30 out of that then give em fanatics
would that be a good start considering i prefer gobs and would like to just use the orcs to support
I treat orcs and goblins as two separate armies really. I started playing with gobbo's and now as I paint the bigger things in my horde I'm playing orcs only. The plan is though to eventually combine them into one huge green throng!
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.
