View Full Version : 1000 Point O&G

So last weekend I played my first 8th Ed game, and my first game in at least 10 years. It was a 1000 pt "beginners" game at a local gaming shop. I ended up winning pretty easily against HE with the following list:

29 Big Un's (2 weap, music & standard) - 281pts
- Orc Big Boss (BSB) - 80pts
- Standard of Disipline - 15pts

19 Orc Arrer (music & standard) - 153pts
- Level 4 Orc Shaman (General) - 200pts

15 Black Orcs (full Command) - 215pts

1 Goblin Wolf Chariot - 50pts

Total: 994

I think I was able to dominate because of the level 4, the high elf general was a level 2 (and was killed early). Also I think he made some poor decisions early on as he was a beginner as well. Just wondering if this is a decent list, cheese, or no good. It would be cool if I could build off this list for larger point games.

It looks pretty great to me.
Except that small units of Black Orcs aren't too good. I'd drop them and get some Goblins and more Chariots.

At 1000 pts I think a lvl 4 is a little over board if your opponent only has a level 2.

Yeah the black orcs were the only real casualty, they got whooped by swordmasters.

It did feel one sided with the level 4, even with mostly poor winds if magic rolls.

Thanks for the input.
