Hey Warseer, just started playing orcs and goblins and finally wrote up a list after much thought. I am also fairly new to 8th edition so any tips on general gameplay will be appreciated, I know it is a lot different than 7th. The guys I play against use some pretty powerful armies including High elves and the Khorne-dog list.

So here it is with-out my heros and lords (im still figuring that out)

50x Night Goblins- netters, musician, standard and 2 fanatics- (265)
24x Black Orcs- musicain, standard, and shields -(332)
3x Spear Chuckas- (105)/ "For the big stuff"
1x Doom Diver- (80)/ It was either this or some form of squig unit to deal with harrassers like fast cav. and stuff like skinks.

This leaves me with 218 points for Heros and lords. I originally wanted to field a warboss and a bsb for leadership purposes. Im kinda scared about taking a goblin hero thought because if hes the general or the bsb he will be a easy target.

I havent actually played this army yet so anyone that has any tips on past experiences with with this army will be apprciated.

Thanks in advance all!!!

for 750 points, you will need a level 2 caster. Even if you don't care about landing any spells at all, you will put yourself in a precarious position without the magic defense.

So ive thougth it over and I think the heros im going to go with are gonna be:


1x Goblin warboss- Armor of Destiny, enchanted shield, and sword of might-140 This gives my NG mob more of a bite and he himself is pretty hard to get rid of.
1x Orc big boss- BSB- 80
(question on the bsb, can a BSB also weild weapons with both hands?)
50x Night Goblins- netters, musician, standard and 2 fanatics- (265)
24x Black Orcs- musicain, standard, and shields -(332)
3x Spear Chuckas- (105)
1x Doom Diver- (80)

I didnt want to take a shaman because I feel it will be too point heavy in a low point game such as this(and I didnt want to skimp on any combat potential), and with all the shooting I have, im sure that my opponent wont hesitate to get into combat with me.

Let me know what you think, I in the process of adding the next 500 to the list :)

I would drop the spear Chuka's.
with the points freed up, I'd add some Wolf Riders of a Wolf Chariot (you COULD keep 1 spear chuka tough).
this gives you some manouvrability

drop doom diver and a spear chucka, and some gear off warboss and you could atleast add level 1 gobo shamen and another black orc or something
