What do the squig darts do? Not seen that before.

I think you've won the chaff war hands down... but I don't see anything that can really fight other than one unit of orcs. Unless of course it is actually meant to be a stalling list as part of a team, in which case it is just fine (and pretty typical for ETC O&G lists).

The little night gob units should have at least 1 fanatic each. And Doom Divers > Rock Lobbers.

The squig darts are something i am experimenting with. 2 wide 4 deep. gobbos in front. they get in a fight, gobbos die. i do 2 S5 attacks, then flee doing d6+6 S5 hits on the unit that broke them. Seems a cheap way to inflict a bunch of S5 hits on stuff.

Yeah the list is designed to stall and stall and stall until the Savage Orcs do the leg work to get the points.

I agree, Doom Divers are the better choice overall, but this list has no shortage of S5 attacks, what i need is an ability to one shot monsters. After play testing I may swap back to double diver, we shall see.

Would love to get fanatics in all the goblin blocks, but as they most likely will be deep in my lines, i fear they will just get pulled out through my own units.

Thanks for the feedback.

Squig herds are 10+ unit size! What some ETC players do is field units of 8-9 herders and 1-2 squigs.
