Welcome to Librarium Online!
Today I was up at my LGS again (A spending trip was in order) and I met several new fantasy players all of whom I greeted with a warm welcome. Until I told them I played greenskins. All of them (About 5 in total) either sniggered or broke out into laughter when I told them. All of them had similar reactions, ranging from "Oh, your're serious? Oh." to "You must really like loosing." I was seriously annoyed at the arrogance of these people. Most of them played Elves of some degree or undead. Why do we Greenskins have such a poor rep? I've played many a hard fought battle and my faithful (Yet unpredictible) boyz have almost always come out on top.
Has anyone else had troubles like this?
Well, the warhammers gamers at my store are a tight group we all know each other and know what each other plays. And they all rip on me for playing greenskins and for how much they suck, and then I use an unbalanced greenskin list to shut them up and they then complain that orcs & goblins are too good.
Play them with 6 goblin magic users 4 spear chukkas, 2 rock lobbas 2 doom divers, and a mess of basic orcs and night gobbos with fanatics. Then listen to them *****
arr dont worry bout it , i live in brisbane and must have kicked there butts the day before , they are jealous . i think they think goblins are weak and orcs are stupid , i dont no how they could say that , elves are poncy gits and undead suck. smash em good bobby.
"Fight like gobbos"- Skarsnik
Only good way to prove them that they're wrong is winning over them, innit?
Seems you have very immature players down under. I don't think anyone would even snigger here if you had a gnoblar list
A word from an ememy. ANIMOSITY
By day he fought with sword and shield.....
By night he fought with pen and parchment.....
He was....The Warrior Poet.......
Fear the ANZAC Clan!!!!!
ORDER OF THE SHADOWY FLAME!!!
Do you have uber micro...????
... but animosity is part of the fun of playing O&G...
But really, in game terms, a 5/36 chance of standing still for a turn (since it's not hard to avoid the problems that rolling a 6 on animosity would give you) and a 1/36 chance of getting an extra move is NOT a particularly bad thing. Especially since we get it factored into the points cost of our units. If you think that's a weakness that's really worth mentioning, then you either don't know O&G well enough or have fought too many O&G players with bad luck on their animosity rolls.
Don't blame elves we're good folkOriginally Posted by Bobby_Wokkerfella
beat em up in a few games and make em respect you.
after that show them how fun O and Gs can be ^_^
"Heresy is like a garden weed, it won't stop feeding until you... BURN THE WHOLE DAMN GARDEN WITH A FLAMER, BURN IT, BURN IT TO HELL!!!!!" "Is there a wittle puppy in the garden? ITS A DAEMON! BURN IT!"
Where I play though O&G players are all nice guys with great senses of humor. People play us to enjoy playing a game thinking "they're not that good, I always win" Most non-O&G players couldn't spot a competitive army until after it whooped them honestly. If I want to have fun I play my Night Goblin horde, not a lot of shooting, and watch the fanatics and squigs bounce. If I want to be competitive the Orc Boys come with them, and Borgut uses his axe to hack off a generals head.
Take it in stride..... everyone's jealous because we're green and green is da best!

What do those prissy elves know? Orcs and Goblins ahve the potential to nearly beat anyone!
ANd Silvermoon, undead do NOT suck
Thers nothing wrong with Orcs & gobbos. In my opinion they've got one of the most diverse army lists of any army, and are fun to use.
some days your army will just sit at the back and squabble all game long, and others it will be ripping you opponents army to pieces.
One of my best experiences involed 2 Fanatics wiping out a unit of Grail knights - not bad for a supposedly 'pants' army.
