Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm new to Warhammer Fantasy but I've played 40k orcs for 3 years now and I've decided that orcs would be a good army to start.
I like the look of using Black Orcs as an orc army list because Goblin seem to be really weak. This may be wrong of me to say as i'm a begginer but I was woundering how are goblins good at all. I'd interested in all of your opinoins.
Unless you are really into only using orcs, i would say use both. Goblins have low points, and provide alot of numbers to your army (and FANATICS). Orcs provide the backbone and strength of your army. So don't choose either Ocs or goblins, use both I would say.
goblins- numbers , orcs strength

Goblins uses are many. Most commonly the night gobo's are used for fanatics. I nice big block of at least 30 with full command and full fanatics. I've found that Regular gobo's with light armor and shield can prove very annoying with an unexpected 4+ save in close combat. Wolf rider are excellent flankers, wonderful fast cav, and are annoying when equipped with bows. If you depend on gobo's to hold your line or win the game you'll most likely lose. Best bet is a combination, if you want to enjoy yourself though and have a lot of laughs play Night Gobo's. Most people will love to play you, curse you when the fanatics come out, but in general everyone loves playing against you.... mostly because they win

Goblins are very fun ^_^
Sure they might not be the best troops but you get a lot for only 3 points a model. I expected a 3 points model to have 2 in every characteristic expect ld which would be 3 :p
Goblins are so much fun, they look funny, they are funny when they run away, they have fanatics, and they look funny
Orcs are also great units.
Get both, orcs as main untis and gobbos as supporting units.
I'd also look into a gobbo big boss, most people don't like him but an average hero for only 35 points looks like a steal to me
