if your going that way i wouldn't bother with the pump wagons, get a doom diver in there. would drop a lobber for another doom diver as well.

p.s. also watch it with the points values, your not meant to give individual points for things

you have 2 itty rings. don't know if you can dupe items in 8th...

your character cap is done wrong. you get 25% for lords and 25% for heroes, not 25% for lords and heroes. so there is no reason for your blorc warboss to be naked. if you are min/maxing (which it looks like you are) then fine add him in. if you are worried about fluff, having a black orc warboss leading skarsnik's army is the opposite of fluffy.

you add your caster level to your magic rolls in 8th, so you really want to find the 35 points to make your lv1's into lv2's, assuming you want to have a magic phase.

units of 20 bowgobs really would benefit alot from adding 1 more bowgob. at 21, they require 6 deaths to panic instead of 5. if you arrange them 7x3, then the first 14 will shoot, and 3 of the back rank will shoot as well (salvo fire). trades a few shots to save a few inches (assuming you were going to do 10x2). just an idea

unit of 20 is probably 10 too many for fast cav. better split into 2 units. possibly 4 units of 5... i'm not sure how fast cav should be in 8th, except that >10/unit is probably too many. fast cav champ is also prob a waste.

i think you have 1 too many units of goblin infantry. drop the smallest

i disagree with castlesmadeofsand that you should get 2 doom divers. 1 maybe, but not 2. not when you have 3 rock lobbas and 6 chuckas already. if you are min/max you should add bullies to your war machines. for 5 points you get +1 ld, +1 orc, ignore goblin panic. quite a bargain. not fluffy in an all goblin army though.

if you are playing a 2999 game and not a 3000 game, then you will be obligated to drop 1 rock lobba. you can only have 3 of the same special in games under 3k.
