Hi,

I'm fairly new to Warhammer Fantasy, but have player 40k for 7 years. I need help with my Orc list, before I go commit and buy everything.

The reason I chose Orcs is because the sheer number and troops + solid colors to paint. I want a pure Orcs army (Black Orcs, Orcs, Boar Boys) but no Gobbos. (Little nasty annoying things) Here is my list. Please help!

Lord
Black Orc Warboss
-Boar
-Martog's Best Basha
-Heavy Armor
-Dispel Scroll
-Shield
Total 218

Hero
Black Orc Big Boss
-Heavy Armor
-Battle Standard
Total 114

Black Orc Big Boss
-Heavy Armor
-Shield
Total 91

Core
Orc Boyz
-30 Boyz
-27 Shields
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 207

Orc Boyz
-30 Boyz
-27 Shields
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 207

Orc Boyz
-30 Boyz
-27 Spears
-27 Shields
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 237

Orc Arrer Boyz
-20 Boyz
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 150

Orc Arrer Boyz
-20 Boyz
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 150

Special Units
Black Orcs
-20 Black Orcs
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 298

Black Orcs
-20 Black Orcs
-Musician
-Standard Bearer
-Boss
Total 298

Goblin Spear Chukka
-Bully
Total 40

Rare
Goblin Doom Diver Catapult
Total 80

So as you can see, I'll be running around approx. 90 Orc Boyz with 40 Arrer Boyz and a hardcore unit of 40 Black Orc Boyz, and still have a little room for artillery.

So comments? Thoughts?

One thing I notices is that you can not take only 27 shields or spears in a unit of 30, you have to take all or nothing in the unit.

But does the Boss, Musician and Standard get them.

Yea, command figures have to be equipped the same as the rest of their unit (even though it is common to model them to look differently).

For example by arrer boy musician is modelled with a hand gun but he is still treated as carrying a bow and choppa. Likewise my musician in my unit of orc boys isn't modelled with a shield but ruleswise he counts as having one anyway as the whole unit is upgraded to have shields.

The warboss can't take a dispel scroll, has to go on a shaman.

Yep; only a wizard may take an arcane item. If your looking for magic defence Mork's Spirit Totem may be a good addition to your battle standard bearer.

I heard in the new edition of Warhammer the magic phase was cut down. I guess I do have to invest in either a Shaman or that Spirit Totem for some magic defence.

What about the troops? Is it enough or should I add some more?
