I would roll the night goblins in to one big unit with 3 fanatics. You could also get more Orc biguns than black orcs, a unit of 20 even at 1000 pts isn't going to frighten anyone.

Welcome back to Fantasy Mike! Also, welcome to Librarium Online :D

Is there any chance you can shed some light on how your collection stands? What models do you have available? As for your list you posted, Here's some pointers...

1] Black Orc Warboss, this guy is incredibly expensive. He's 25% of your army at the moment and that's a tad too much! You could make do with just a Black Orc Boss or a plain Orc Warboss to save some much needed points. This can/should be reinvested into his unit or into more hammers such as Chariots or Trolls.

2] Goblins. Night Goblins are fine although I'd prefer to have Nets than the fanatic. In small games getting nets into a crucial combat can make the game for you. Chuck these guys into combat alongside your black Orcs and you're golden. You probably don't need 40 of them though, go for 30 or 35.

3] 5 Wolf Riders will do you at 1000pts as you shouldn't be facing too much artillery. Again, reinvest those points elsewhere.


As it stands, your entire list is based around the black Orcs and the unit isn't really big enough to wreck the entirety of your opponents list. You need another hammer type unit in there to cause some pain. Trolls are awesome but at a pinch a couple of goblin chariots will do if you can't get a unit of 6ish in there! You also have Pump Wagons, Big'uns, Squiggs etc.

OR chuck in more black orcs to make it a massive unit! awesome!

30+ blorcs maybe even in horde formation, now thats pretty intimidating in 1.000 points
