    its pretty smallish for a 2000 pts game. IMO, you could use a rock lobba,spear chukka to add a little punch. I can see that your going for the HTH army style, but i've found a little range helps greatly. Maybe 1 less unit of Boar boys, and add in some regular orc boys to increase the size. Just my 2 cents.

    Your army general doesn't need a shield as he has drogs armour, meaning he has a 1+ save that can't be improved. Likewise in the case of the other 2 characters carrying great axes, wouldn't bother giving them shields as they are likely to charge so the minus of striking last won't apply. Noggs banner is great but I have found it works better in mounted units so you can activate it the turn you charge and get attacks from all the models before you get hit. It seems to lack any oomph from shooting as well, you can never go far wrong with a couple of spear chukkas.

    Well the reason why i didnt include any shoting was because i thought it wasnt needed, before i had a lot of shooty stuff eg arrer boyz spear chukaz rock labaz. But the more i used it the more i thought it was a waist of points.

    also about the small army, it doesnt seem small to me you should really see a small army, unless your talking about an orc small army. Im talking too much.

    any way thanks for the advice ill conseder it, in the meen time keep em coming

    I agree with my army general not needing the shield, but im not quite clear on the other two heroes. i wanted the armour save for orc big boss, scince hes a target most of the time.

    I would really consider dropping the wyvern. It makes your general a large target and its too many points. I would guess that he is likely to be lead astray from the main army as he can fly. I would spend the hundreds of spare points of rock lobbas and chukkas. However I love the small boar boyz units. I might even suggest going down to units of 5. Anyway, see how it goes.
