After digging out my Orcs & Goblins from the depths of my attic, i've decided to paint them all up and put together a 2500pt list. I'm not after a power build, but an army that I can improve my tactics with and have some fun. I haven't played a proper game before so please let me know any glaring flaws, thanks.

generally I suggest taking a black orc warboss instead of a regular orc and drop him in a unit of black orcs with the standard of discipline, If you keep your BSB near as well thats a LD10 bubble, which is huge for O&G, your build however on you warboss is very similar to mine, i like it.

That's a good idea, thanks. I could drop a river troll for the extra points. I was going to use the black orcs to kill trolls & monsters, but I guess 4 war machines could handle monsters and a horde of orcs with flaming could handle trolls.

They are really good for killing monsters, but with m4 they're not really going to get a ton of control in the movement phase. I generally prefer to use a spider for that roll, but your war machines might be able to handle it just as well.
