Main thing I would change there is to get rid of the command for the arrer boyz, and take 2 10-armourless-orc units with musicians only, and give the night gobbos and wolf riders spears. Short bows are mostly useless except against chargers, and who charges a night gobbo unit when fanatics are afoot?

Apart from that, you might wanna drop the chariot big boss for another lvl2shaman, otherwise you'll suffer horribly against magic-heavy armies until the boyz get stuck in. Then you can use the leftover points to give the warboss a magic weapon and beef up some of the units, maybe add an extra troll if you have enough.

You can free up alot of points there, but since you seem to have short time painting, more troops would make more bad.

I would get rid of the full comand on some of it anyway :Wolf riders, Common goblins,
Nad arrer boys. But how many units have you finished? since there is no changing then.

I think you should split up the arrer boys anyway(if you don't have them as a fighty unit with bows)

the problem is only 1 mage for a tourny, meens yuor going to get smoked. Get at least one more mage, as orc ones do have sme fighting ability.

The only unit I have left to paint is the spear armed big uns, the other option I was thinking of was getting rid of a few things, like the trolls, & chariot big boss, and putting in 3 maneaters. The arrer boyz split sounds a capital idea, and not too hard to model. I am seriously thinking of another shaman as well, magic is an area that I haven't really seen much action with my main opponents being dwarves & empire. The tournament could very well be a different story.
