bullies? in an army with no other orcs? meh it's your army but that's kind of odd...

as posted in countless ng threads, raggedy banner is generally not worth it for ng army.

spears + skarsnik unit = mistake. you want this unit to be durable. go with nets and hw+s

night goblin shamen can't ride in chariots

mad cap mushrooms are an option that characters take, a unit doesn't upgrade with madcap mushrooms, nor do fanatics. only characters may take them. same with collar of zorga, only a character can equip that

I would drop the spears on Skarsniks unit.
Push your bow gobbos up to 21 in each unit, this way they will need to take 6 casualties before they panic.
Sometime you should think about putting just one fanatic in with the bow gobbos.
You have no fast cavalry, you need those fast flanking units.
Drop your shamans back down to level one, level 2 is a waste of points.
Drop the bullies.
Thats all I can think of right now.

Lorcan

Those full commands, do you really NEED the banners in 'em? (Sorry, but I say this every time I see an all-Goblin list.) I mean, those are basically 100 VP's on a pretty flimsy unit.

Just some food for discussion/thought.

Humm....Okay first of all, rtunian you have been a great help, and i agree bullies in a goblin army is very odd.......with the raggedy banner i only added it becouse many people said that it were a must have in any gobbo armies but i'll remove....
and with skarsnik and the spear unit, ill put him in another unit with hw+s....
With the shaman, well im pretty new i actually didnt know they couldnt ride in chariots but ill check my rule books and find one something else.....and with the items, well that were just me being stupid :P anyway ill make a new list but still feel free to comment me becouse as i said your a great help :D

Split the spider riders into 2 units of 5, and drop the FC.

Hmmm.....wouldnt it atleast be and idea to keep the musician?

you got to keep the musicians for the spiders! but give them bows - you will LOVE the bows on the spiders - i got 60 spider riders all with bows!
Split the squig hoppers into 2 units of 5 - dont forget the bolt throwas are a 2 for 1 deal (2 bolt throwers = 1 special)
otherwise a cool gobbo list!

Hmmmm i'll remove the chariot becouse nothing else can keep up with it.......then i can split up the squig hoppers......i'll need more fanatics.....the spider riders with bows sounds pretty cool, ill pick up a box in my GW store in next week.....

can't keep up with a chariot?
chariots can't march, by the way.

Dont remove the chariot! Its amazing! The army can keep up as the army marchs 8" wereas your chariot has a basic move of 9" (as it cant march).
the main thing is though the chariot is deployed BEHIND units - I will place it between 2 units, but make sure its behind the front line so it's harder to picked out by enemy fire.
Then you march forwards, unleash the lil whirring fanatics and sit back! Now while your fanatics are going mental on the dance floor you start peppering the foe with artillary shots from bolt throwers/rock lobbas/bowfire.
You also use this time to re-posistion your units so they take charges better.
Then when the foe charges you - or you charge them - you can also run the chariot in to counter-charge or support charge your main units. The D6+2 impact hits at Str 5 will really come in handy to help win a combat. I'm sad as I only own 1 chariot for now, but it's a mistake I'm aiming to rectify!
Have fun
