Is that heavy armour? If so good, he need protecting and which unit will you put him in? For the Night Gobbos give them full command, these are one of the worst units in the game (they flee reeeally easy). The musicain should help them to rally, and if they get into combat don't expect much. Same with their bows, don't expect them to hit much (they would have problems with hitting a barn four foot away :D ). But other than that good list, although I would suggest a Shaman otherwise you'll be losing lots of gobbos (and mabe orcs) if they have a magic missile.

ok sorry i meant heavy armour. The big boss is going to be in the middle of the 2 orc units so they dont run off. I am not really bothered about the gobbos as they are soooooo cheap :) they are just a distraction same with the wolf riders. the wolf riders are going to annoy them and maybe take out a war machine.

OK thanks

Yeah I agree with you about the shaman. I will customise my army to best annoy my opponent :D . I will probably switch my wolf riders for a shaman if magic is needed. The gobbos are not really meant to get into combat. If needed i will use them to hold up expensive units to really annoy people. In 1500pts / 2000pts I will include 6 spear chukkas ( who ever said you cant make a REALLY shooty orc army!!! ) Any more suggestions? What would be better night gobbos with bows or spears? Just getting some opinions.

Thanks a lot, DaRk-InTeNtIoN

Bows and gobbos mix well as they cost 3pts a model so you can take a lot. I like the spear chukka idea 2. A nice army overall. Why not replace your boss with a shaman if you like magic or are you bothered with animosity? :D

ok anyone else prefer bows with gobbos rather than them with spears or other weapons? I am really scared of ANIMOSITY i hate it!! It is the biggest problem in the orc and gobbo army. If one person stands on anothers toe thats it they will have a big fight for the rest of the turn. But orc armyies are soooo fun thats why i like'em. Any more suggestions????

I am kinda stuck . What should I add to make the army 1500pts?
