Welcome to Librarium Online!
Reckon a Savage Orc army could work? Had this thought lingering in my mind for a while now, and even though the ever growing ease of beating frenzy lead armies i always wanted a Savage Orc army, as it looks fun to play and to paint.
Though could they win games? And what would the army look like? Seeming as they are restricted in what they can take, would i have to use a lot of goblins to back them up, and to control their frenzy?
You could make the list but it would hard to win against any experienced opponent as they will just seperate all your frenzied units and then kill them off by surrounding each unit individually and then mopping up the rest of your un-frenzied army (which isnt that much).
Yeah thats what i thought would happen, though i am an experienced player, and will counter this in some way, by using other units to stop them from being lead off, like a king of sling shot, where there will be only one path the frenzied units can go down, if you get whast i mean.
Yeah i get what you mena. Why dont you post the army list as I would like to have a look at it .
Will do once i've made it
Don't be afraid to use wolfriders and chariots. Just piles and piles of savage orcs and boar boyz the modelcount gets a bit low.
And who doesn't love doing warpaint-goblins?
i am thinking of adding savage orcs to my gobbo list as they might give it a bit of umph!
and i love the models.
that would be an incredibly expensive army though, thats the main reason i dont have any in my army, infact the only reason, i would like to have one but i take big units and that would cost me an arm and a leg so i just take normal orcs instead!
lets agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours are
You could use small units of savage orcs as flankers or shock troops but the frenzy could make them charge unwanted enemies

put a small single file of night goblins with fanatic or two in front of each of your savage orc units. They will block line of sight and then when they get charged just flee with them so the unit of savage orc behind them can get the charge of on the unit which will have just failed the charge.
