    Keep the boyz and give spears to your night goblins.

    I agree. Arrer boyz are better at shooting, tougher and can use reform rules and choppas (+1 strehgh on the charge) to be ok in combat. Black horses of Orcs and Gobbos! Better than you think! Night gobbos shoud have spears and fanatics (short bows range is too short, compared to arrer boyz).

    Yeah it's a really simple choice: Strong, tough orcs with bows, or weedy gobbo's with bows...........easy choice

    Id say that an arrow hurts as much when shot by orcs as when shot by goblins. And you get more arrows with the cheaper goblins, no?

    You could use the orcs as a normal orc unit, exept they can shoot to.

    Yeah and don't the Arrer Boyz have Choppa's too?? I would certainly use them since they may survive close combat.....whenever gobbo archers get in CC they're dead (but then, most gobbos are )

    gobbos have more survivability then you may think get a packed unit of 30 or so (run away from warmachines and magic ) and with rank bonus and outnumbering they can actually break some units :rolleyes: waaaaaghhh da gobbos!

    Gobbo archer are cheaper, but a lot of people make out arrer boyz to be worse then they are. Tactically, they give you a lot of options.

    Orc arrer boys have longbows, right?
    Gobbos with shortbows can't shoot very far, so i would go for orc boweneers.

    Personally i dont use either of them.
