I am kind of new to the actual game, but I have quite a few models.

This is a quick thousand point army list I made up. I mostly will be playing against high elves.

I realize the shaman is a really bad choice for a small game. Honestly when I played a game with this last weekend, I had no use for a lord at all, my two units of savage orcs destroyed his spearmen.

Any advice would be appreciated.

That's seems like a pretty solid army. Consider adding a bsb for the leadership test rerolls. Also if your playing against elves a lot they hate impact hits. So consider adding some wolf chariots. To pay for these I would get rid of the boar boys and spear chukka. Asf means most of your boys will be dead by the time its your turn to attack back

Go for Hero level characters, and ditch the big stabbas. That way you can get more Orcs in the units, and three characters including a BSB.

I like the list. And magic is pretty important in small games. With 12 potential dice a turn magic could be crazy. I would drop stabas, and sqigs. I would add a bsb and either doom diver or rock libber or even a pump wagon. U could drop one chariot and trim tha savages back a little too

manglers are great against high elves so keep them, drop the big stabbas and get another mangler

Ok, I dropped the big stabba's and put in another mangler.

Anymore suggestions?
