I'm hoping to attend a tournamant in about a month's time, and saying 'it's been a while' for me and tournaments is a slight undertstatement...

I intend to take my Orcs and Goblins and, although I doubt I have much chance of winning, I'd like to be as competitive as I can with my list.

I have a limited amount of models, and can't really afford to buy more. I also don't have all of it painted. What I do have painted is:

20 Orc Boyz- Additional Choppas, Full command- 170pts
20 Orc Boyz- Spears, Shields, Full command- 170pts. Can be used as Big Uns- 250 pts.
10 Orc Arrer Boyz- 60pts.
25 Night Goblins- Spears, Shields,, Netters, Full command, 3 Fanatics- 230pts
10 Wolf Riders- Spears, Full command- 160pts. May have shields- 170pts
20 Black Orcs- Full command- 298pts
5 Savage Orc Boar boyz- Spears, Shields, Full command- 168pts
2 Orc Chariots- 160pts
1 Doom Diver- 80pts

What I have not painted:

20 Orc Boyz- Additional Choppas, Full command- 170pts
16 Orc Boyz- unassembled (I'm planning on using these to boost my other units to 24 in size)
20 Orc Arrer Boyz- 120pts
65 Night Goblins- Spears, Shields, 3* Full command, Netters, 3 Fanatics
20 Night Goblins- Short Bows
10 Wolf Riders- Spears, Full command- 160pts. May have shields- 170pts
5 Wolf Riders- Bows, Musician- 71pts
20 Spider Riders- Spears, Shields, 2* Full command
5 Orc Boar Boyz- Spears, Shields, Standard- 124pts
1 Goblin Chariot- 60pts
2 Spear Chukkas- 70pts
1 Rock Lobba- 70pts
1 Giant

I have a lot of characters, and can fit in almost any kind of character. The exceptions are: No Wyvern, no mountd BSB, no Regular Goblin Shamans, No Great Squig or Giant Spider.

The points aim is 2500.
I'll edit this to add in a list of my own soon. Help in list design would be greatly appreciated.

Edit:
One possible list-

22 Orc Boyz- Additional Choppas, Full Command- 184 pts.
23 Orc Boyz- Spears, Shields, Full Command- 191 pts.
26 night Goblins- Spears, Shields, Netters, Full Command, 3 Fanatics- 234 pts
10 Orc Arrer Boyz- 60 pts
10 Goblin Wolf Riders- Spears, Shields, Full Command- 170 pts
5 Goblin Wolf Riders- Short Bows, Musician- 71 pts
20 Black Orcs- Full Command, Gork's Waagh! Banner- 323 pts
5 Savage Orc Boar Boyz- Spears, Shields, Full Command- 168 pts
1 Goblin Wolf Chariot- 60 pts
2 Goblin Spear Chukkas- 70 pts
1 Goblin Doom Diver- 80 pts
1 Giant- 205 pts

Black Orc Warboss- Boar, Heavy Armour, Spiteful Shield, Bigged's Kickin' Boots, Warboss Umm's Best Boss 'At- 260 pts
Black Orc Battle Standard Bearer- Heavy Armour, Mork's Spirit Totem- 164 pts
Night Goblin Shaman- Level 2, Staff of Sneaky Stealin'- 135 pts
Night Goblin Shaman- Level 2, Mad Cap Mushrooms, 2* Magic Mushrooms- 125 pts

Total- Exactly 2500 pts

Swap Spiteful Shield for Ulag's Axe >> Black Orc Warboss- Boar, Heavy Armour, Spiteful Shield, Bigged's Kickin' Boots, Warboss Umm's Best Boss 'At- 260 pts
On boar +2 AS (remove a gobbo & a magic mushroom ??) >> Black Orc Battle Standard Bearer- Heavy Armour, Mork's Spirit Totem- 164 pts

Personally I go for magic defence in OnG @ <3000, so I would drop shamans to lvl 1, remove mushrooms & add a Dispel scroll or two (or a sneaky enchanted item - Baubles is a favourite)

If possible always add a musician to your Arrer Boyz & bully to Spear Chukka will help in rallying & panic tests.

To be honest, there is very little in the army list you suggest I would field.

Too much stuff (and the wrong kind of stuff) and too few units. I'd aim to get something like three or four extra units on the table.

Thanks for the link Avian

I can field most of what's in your 2500 pt list in that link, but I'll have a lot of painting to do...

BlackVomit-
I don't have a mounted BSB- I may be able to convert one- I'll look through what I have.
I know 2 level 2 shamans isn't a lot of magic, but at least it's some magic. I like magic, so would prefer to keep these as is (with maybe some equipment swaps).
