As the title says, I am going to fight Orcs tomorrow and I was wondering what lore would be best ? I am having 2 different games, one with a lvl 4 fire , and a lvl 2 dark, and one with a lvl 2 fire and a lvl 2 dark.

Would shadow be a better option? if so who should take it? thanks in advance.

Also anything you guys could tell me about Orcs would be great as this is gonna be the first time i will fight them. thanks.

First question: which army will you use?
Second question: how many points?

I can believe I left that out, Dark Elves, Both games will be 2500pt games.

Use a mix of shadow and death

As a DE player why would you not take shadow- it is the best of the 8 lores-

death or shadow....
I would pick death personally. It ruins characters while the sun can get rid of those nasty blocks of troops.

Folks, the OP is taking four Wizards. Unless said person really likes Melkoth's Miasma, they need at least two lores (arguably they only need two Shadow wizards, so three lores).

EDIT - I'd plump for Level 4 and Level 2 Shadow and either 2 Level 2 Death Sorceresses (because Purple Sun of Xereus makes Orc players cry) or a mix of Death and Fire (because it's nice to have an extra way of improving your wound rate when you're playing with elves).

No, I was taking 2 wizards, for the first game, and 2 wizards for the 2nd game,

2 games, 2 wizards in each game. I took shadow and fire for the 2 lvl 2's, and shadow and dark for the lvl 4 and lvl 2.

It turns out that shadow was the best choice, Mindrazor helped thin out some ranks, till time ran out.
