I've recently decided to start a warhammer after playing warhammer 40k. i thought orcs would be a good place to start because i really liked them in warcraft (GW told me they were related). I have no experience in WH fantasy so plz tell me if i should get, orc boyz, or savage orcs. i thought core would be a good place to start, and then plz advise mne as to what i would buy after, and what equipment i should give them. Thank you in advance.
(p.s. sorry bout the 2ble post. its my 1st post )

Savage orcs are better in most circumstances, although you always have to keep in mind to protect them from opposing units that are in charge range (unless you want them to auto-charge them of-course!) because they must charge if able to do so.
Whay are they better? Extra attacks, immunity to psychology while frenzied, cheap war saves on your rank and file troops. The only downfall really is that they are all metal models, so a unit of 20+ will cost you quite a bit.
Hope it helps, and welcome to LO!
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.

OK so savage orc boys r better, but it doesnt seem to me like they would be worth $82 for a regiment. i mean normal orc boyz r $30 for a regiment and can b given various weapon, i can get a regiment and a half of orc boys for 1 of savage orcs. o and plz tell me if the following units r worth getting..... Goblins Regiment, Night Goblin Regiment, Goblin Wolf Riders. thanx alot....
I personally like Savage Orc Boar Boyz, though they're harder to control. But that might be somewhat due to the fact that they mesh a bit better with my army, being fast shock melee fighters in an army lacking shock melee. Well, that and the fact that for some reason metal models of Sav Orc Boar Boyz are cheaper where I live than those of Sav Orcs on foot and Orc Boar Boyz.
And to answer your latter questions: Yes, yes and yes. Read the goblin guide in the tactica section for more on those, but suffice to say: Attrition melee (Gobbos and NG), fast cav (wolf riders) and FANATICS!!!!!!!!
