so i've stopped orcs for about a year now and I want to have about 1000 points just to have so I can go back to them every now and then to my big green friends. I want to run all orcs or 95% orcs in my army. And I want a horde of orcs so I'm copying the common tactic of the green tide.

Orc Big Boss - heavy armor,shield, martog's best basha, kickin' boots (121)

Orc shaman - level 2, 2 scrolls (150)

Boyz - 20, full command, shields (150)

Boyz - 20, full command, shields (150)

Boyz - 20, full command, shields (150)

Boyz - 20, full command, shields (150)

Boar Boyz - 5, boss (127)

Total:998
Models: 87

Comments and critique are welcome and needed.

Seems pretty straight foward but looks fairly good for 1k.

Yeach, tactic is simple. Rush and kill.

I would drop one unit of Boys for some fast cav or snotlings or something though. Something to divert charges. This is what I would do at 1k (ish)

Black Orc Big Boss - Heavy Armor, Shield
Black Orc Big Boss - Shield, BSB, Spirit Totem

Boys 24x - Shield, Full Command - 174
Boys 24x - Shield, Full Command - 174
Night Goblins 20x - Fanatic 1x - 85
Night Goblins 20x - Fanatic 1x - 85
Spider Riders 5x- Musician - 76
Spider Riders 5x - Musician - 76
Pump Wagon 2x - 80

some modifications i would make to your list:

trade 1 20 shield boy w/full com block for 2 10 choppa boyz w/music blocks
trade 1 20 shield boy w/full com block and boar boyz for 3 boar chariots
add 1-4 shield boyz in the other 2 blocks
trade level 2 on shaman for single troll

i think right now your list is too plain, and lacks real punch. sure you have the boar boyz, there's nothing else for anyone to shoot at besides them...

I totally agree with rtunian, you need some other units for better tactics. I meet a big orc army on foot with my WE and i won easily.
