you should drop your squig hopper units to sevens apiece, and use those points to add to your orc boyz blocks. you want the orc boyz to be 25+. you can get some points from cutting bullies and champions of units that won't be protecting shamans

with only 6 pd + 1 bound, you aren't going to be getting many spells off. i would drop both level 2's and trade the bitty ring and scroll for sneaky staff

river trolls are better than stone trolls imo

but other than those things dose it look pretty solid?

I made a Random Name Generator (http://www.avianon.net/misc/namegen.php)


Army list looks okay, but I have some tips:

A boar for the general is a great investment.

When a magic item can backfire and cause a S5 hit on your guy, put it on the T4 guy and not the T3 guy.

And your goblin big boss is rather pointless. I'd make him a Battle Standard Bearer instead and have him be useful for helping out da Boyz.

The Boyz units are a bit small.

Gobbo units are probably a bit too expensive. I'd like to keep them at around half the cost of your units.

Wolf Riders really need musicians.

You can go with around 7ish Hoppers per unit and do well.

Spear Chukkas don't really need bullies.

I'd personally just field normal Trolls instead of Stone Trolls. For 20 pts less you can get four regular Trolls, which are significantly better than three Stone Trolls.


I also have an article on my website that might be useful to you: Starting an Orcs & Goblins Army (http://www.avianon.net/tactics/greenskin_starting.php)

I tried your Orc name generator, and to be honest, I find the results a little odd... this is what it spat out:

Sharotk al Futhark
Haban uk Narhug
Tonkbakka ok Domar
Dushgor al Saklash

Doesn't exactly strike me as typical Orc names... maybe a tribe located in Araby...?;)

But it's a nice idea. Your site is a place of great wisdom and I always enjoy my stay.:p

They are more LotR / Grunts names than GW names, that is correct, though it will generate all the GW special character names. ;)
