    Hi everyone!

    I'm just fishing for some cool ideas for an Ardboyz list. I currently have the following models available, so any input for an effective list from Orc veteran warbosses would be greatly appreciated.

    Heroes:

    Grimgor
    Borgut
    2 Warbosses on Boars
    Orc Shaman
    Orc Shaman on Boar

    Core:

    3 Orc units up to 30 each
    2 black orc units up to 20 each
    1 unit of 5 boar boyz

    Special:

    6 Stone trolls
    Rock Lobba
    2 Spear Chukkas

    Rare:

    Giant
    Doom diver

    Just to give you guys a bit of flavour for what I'll be up against, most of my friends play DE, VC, Dwarves, Chaos and HE.

    I look forward to your input guys!

    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    First off you can forget about Grimgor. He's a Lord choice, and you can't have a lord in a 1000 point army. However, Borgut is a great fighter (his four strength 6 attacks and re-rollable 1+ saving throw will put him in good stead against most foes) and with his Leadership of 9 he'll make a fine general. I'd have him lead a unit of 19 regular orcs, since he has the special ability to automatically upgrade them to Big Un's for free (which should save you almost 40 points). Giving this unit spears and shields will make them quite hard.

    A unit of Black Orcs armed with great weapons and carrying Nogg's Banner of Butchery (once per battle each model in the unit gets +1 attack) will be quite tough as well (I recommend great weapons since they'll be invaluable against tough, well armored foes like dwarves and chaos). You could put a Black Orc Big Boss (armed with whatever magic paraphernalia you think best) in this unit if you wanted to make it really hard, though I think a plain vanilla boss upgraded from the rank a file will work fine (and save you a bunch of points).

    As for your boar boyz, personally I believe a cavalry unit should be at least 10 models strong. A unit of only five boar boyz probably won't last long, so I'd forget about using them.

    2 Spear Chukkas will work great and they're cheap to boot, so definitely take them.

    I find River Trolls to be much better than Stone Trolls, but Stonies will still work fine (especially if you're worried about magic). I usually field three or so.

    I love giants. However, they're very expensive for a 1000 point army and will take up your only rare slot, so it's up to you on whether or not to include one. Do you have something to represent an Effigy of Gork? If you decide not to use a giant then you should go for this. I find it a Godsend (Gorksend? ) when it comes to dis-spelling hostile magic (since I tend to field a lot of Black Orc characters).

    Good luck in your battles.

    Please post such threads in the army list forum if you want an evaluation and response.
    I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

    Boyz should be in squads of 25 models minimum,any less and you arent playing like a true horde army which is what orcs are. I'd reccomend against grimgor,and shamans should be kept to a minimum and given dispell scrolls. Magic isnt for the 'ardboyz list except for bound spells.

    You have both a giant and a doom driver. You only have 1 rare slot in 1,000 points, and you are taking 2 rare choices.

    Don't warbosses take up 2 hero slots? Or are those just black orc warbosses.

    This isn&#39;t a list, this is what all of the models he has.

    Black orc big bosses. Very powerful hero. Unfortunatly, they take up 2 slots, so you can only have 1 in 1,000 points. You can have your last slot be your shaman. A little magic can be very helpful. 3 units of orcs at 30 each? take the lot of them. A unit of black orcs, the giant, and those spear chukkas should be your basic army. I&#39;m not sure on the point costs here, but if you can, more orcs&#33; ORC SMASH&#33; So just have fun smashing those puny hummies.

    WAAAAAGH&#33;
