    Orcs with Bows

    I bought 2 orc battalions a few years back, so I have WAAAAY more orc bowmen than I could ever use. Actually I was at a tournament and people were like:
    Person: "what are those?"
    Me: "Orc Bowmen"
    Person: "Orc....Bowmen?... what are those? Did you make them out of other stuff?"

    I know that no one uses them, but I try and use them in 2, 10 strong units that run out in front and draw a little fire and maybe return some too. I Just REALLY wish they could take shields. Then when they charged in they could be just like a combat orc.
    It seams like some people that dont know what they are will tend actually see them as some kind of a threat.

    Is there any other use for them?
    Is there any way to give them shields? Hope Hope
    Or should I just clip off the bows, glue on some shields, and call them Orc Boyz with choppers and shields. hehe

    Well i have never used them but i have used night goblin archers , but most people would clip the bows and glue shields for some orc boys , then some would use like you are using in groups of 10 however some people use them as arrtillery protection in a long thin line of about 15X2

    I did the latter option and no one knows the difference not even other O&G players

    Most people will tell you to make them Orc boys with Choppas and Shields. I kinda agree since Orcs with Missile fire might as well be Ruglad's Boys. But 15x2 in the front could make and interesting front line. Kinda have to shoot at them or be annoyed buy the orc bows. And if you assault them, then get choppa's back.
