My quest to bring you the best possible 2000pt "pure" night goblin army to the table. I've limited myself to only taking night goblin units/characters. The one exception I have made is for trolls as I plan on using the metal stone troll models and believe they fit the theme rather nicely.

CHARACTERS

Night Goblin Warboss (General)
- Axe of Stunty Smashin
- Armour of Destiny
- Shield
= 158pts

Night Goblin Great Shaman
- Level 4
= 175pts

Night Goblin Shaman
- Level 2
- Dispel Scroll
= 110pts

Night Goblin Big Boss (BSB)
- Standard of Disipline
- Light Armour/Shield
= 74pts

Night Goblin Big Boss
- Great Weapon
= 34pts

Night Goblin Big Boss
- Great Weapon
= 34pts

Night Goblin Big Boss
- Great Weapon
= 34pts

Night Goblin Big Boss
- Great Weapon
= 34pts

CORE

55 Night Goblins
***Warboss with all big bosses Here***
- Full Command
- Nets
- 3 Fanatics
= 315pts

30 Night Goblins
- Musician
- Short Bows
- 2 Fanatics
= 150pts

30 Night Goblins
- Musician
- Short Bows
- 2 Fanatics
= 150pts

SPECIAL

Squig Herd
- 30 Squigs
- 10 Herders
= 270pts

10 Squig Hoppers
= 120pts

6 Trolls
= 210pts

RARE

Mangler Squig
= 65pts

Mangler Squig
= 65pts

TOTAL POINTS = 1998pts

Da plan is to place all the big bosses and the warboss in the large unit of night goblins with the nets. The unit will be deployed 5 wide with the bsb hanging around in the second rank to take advantage of the +1 LD. The trolls will generally be beside the large unit of night goblins for the LD tests.

The hoppers are in because I like the models and they fit the theme. I wish they could ambush or scout as that would make them way more effective in my opinion.

I believe I have made the best list possible with the exception of taking the hoppers. If I really wanted to optimize the list I think I'd drop the hoppers in favour of a night goblin big boss on cave squig. As I believe he does a better job at hunting warmachines etc then the hoppers do.

Nice list are you going to put a battle report of this army and how it preforms in battle it would be interesting to see.

Thanks for the comments. Just in the process of putting the army together, plan on getting a game in this weekend with them.

I've looked at dropping the 10 squigs for the following

Night Goblin Big Boss
- Giant Cave Squig
- Light Armour/Shield/Spear
- Dragonhelm
*Either Dawnstone for 3+ re-rollable save or mask of eeee for some terror fun

This guy comes in at the same price as the unit of hoppers and fills the warmachine hunter/small unit hunter job role better.
