You're the best :D! those unit descriptions were top-notch.

While I certainly understand the point in not kitting out a character, I really believe that Lords should be kitted out. Heroes, maybe not... but your lord? yeah.

Well that was all I had to say :)

Thanks! I had fun with it. :)

Oddly enough, the lord was kind of an after thought; notice that he's the cheapest character. In my original army conception the goblin shaman who nobody listens to was the general! After all, Ld9 is a lot more useful to units that aren't frenzied...

So, if I did kit out the lord (I'm thinking amulet of protectyness and armour of gork - the great weapon is fine if he actually gets to swing it), what do you think I should drop?

im not sure what you should drop but definatly kit him out, porkos pigstikka and a chariot or boar is a nice combo, then some defense (may be hard due to the fact we have 2 magic armours lol) and a nice ward save.

No way am I putting a frenzied warboss on a mount, that's just asking for trouble. :D

Wolf Riders probably. They're one of the kind of unit that isn't too small or too big unless the model count is 8+ :)

I would probably take: Martog's Best Basha, Effigy of Mork and because I don't have the book and there doesn't seem to be a scan of it out yet, I don't know what else... though the Ironback Boar seems to cause Impact Hits and I'm a huge fan of those, so I'd probably take it if I could. Perhaps put him with the Savage Boar Boyz, screen them with something and let's roll! Btw, might wanna bump the SOBB's to 6?

This is of course my idea, and it makes them quite a pincushion - though a nasty unit. gl hf

Id drop one unit of wolves and one unit of lads with spears, you dont really have any strength in the list - everything will just "get on" but not break anything.

possibly add a couple of snotling pump wagons for more ramming, a boar chariot to soak up some fire (and keep it off yer wolf chariots), effigy of mork and best basha will do nicely on the warboss to keep his points down, dont forget his 6+ ward already (a 6+always saves for me, a 1+ does not!)

make the boars big uns if poss and increase to 6, then watch em steamroller stuff!

a bolt thrower would be nice for a laugh and yer set!

Amulet of Protectyness, armour problem solved.

Nice list otherwise, certainly not heard of.
