Lol awesome. 3 big bosses per night goblin unit i presume? Hell even with those 3 BB the units is gonna be at the same cost as most other enemies. On top of giving them essentially toughness 5 you WILL win a war of attrition! Id love to fight this with my khorne maruader horde. So much carnage. Il post it later so we can see the matchups.

Im assuming at those number you wont be running them horde formation? so min frontage for heroes and command - oh just saw u dont have any command.... that might help alot lol.

Wheres the Warboss going?

Looks fun and suprisingly nasty.

That's right, just 5 wide. Better for them to provide stubborn while the heros do the killing.

I didn't give them command as it doesn't seem worth it. I'm not planning to win (at first anyway) and being stubborn means I don't care how much I lost by. Only one that might be worth it is a champ to protect my heros but they are a bit expensive so I passed them up.

Warboss would go in one of the middle two units (most likely the one that started with only 40).

Right on. I tend to like the musicians for movement flexibilty at least with the rumored reforming.

Let us know how it goes.

Nope, I have some of the older (and larger) night goblins.

Currently they have spear and shield but I have enough ogre bits to make those all great weapons.

have you seen the new weapon that gives the guy using it +1A +1S for any character in contact with him or his units?

He is going to blow you man, +3S +3A

Why stop there? Stick 10 in a unit! +10S +10A! It works with friendly heroes iirc.

I guarantee he is not going to blow me.

Actually, I would probably include 6 Night Goblin shamans in place of Bigbosses - One for each Little Waaagh! spell.

It also would allow you to decline challenges with minimal losses.

am i being stupid here? the army book states that at that points level, you get 1 lord and 4 hero choices. has the BRB overruled this?

You are not being stupid, but the new edition of warhammer (8th) is out in stores now as advance copies. In just a few weeks, everyone will be trying this type of stuff as armies go back to percentage choices, rather than just allotted slots.

No. It does not.
