This is my first Orcs and Goblins list and after lots of debating I decided to play NightGoblins. Here's the list I came up with:

Doom Diver
5 Spider Riders w/Bows and Musician
20 Night Goblins w/Spear&Shields and Full Command & Netters
20 Night Goblins w/Spear&Shields and Full Command & Netters
3 Night Goblin Fanatics (1 to 1 squad and 2 to the other)

Im not sure wether to get 1 squad of 30ish NG and then add in a NG Big Boss or to keep or this way. All advice accepted!!

PS not tryin to go for a competitive list just something that's fun to play but I would be going up against Skaven most of the time and would like some advice on how to make this list more Anti-Skaveny.

I would suggest Bolt Throwers and bring a minimum of two fanatics per unit.

You mean Spear Chuckas and I squeezed a Fantaic in there.

I'd suggest bringing along a Common Goblin Boss (or two) or Warlord. Night Goblin LD is pitifully low. Also, iirc, the general view is that Wolf Riders are a bit better than Spider riders (and also cheaper, points wise. Shame about the models though).

Squigs. Squigs are a night gobbos best friend, a best friend that eats them but when you are a night goblin you don't get good friends.

So this is the list so far (I really like spider Riders and will keep them and Wolf Riders look pretty bad):

20 NG w/Shield&Spear and Full Command & Netters (2 Fanatics)
5 Spider Riders w/Bows and Musician
Spear Chucka
Doom Diver
8 Cave Squigs 4 NG Herders
NG Big Boss w/Great Weapon and Dragonhelm

I'd drop the netters tbh. They are great but it equates roughly to paying 5 points per model for a T4 night goblin, I only put them in units of 50+.

My 500 point Night gobo list was:
2x20 night gobs, standard, fanatic
squig herd, 10 squigs and 9 handlers
warboss, light armour, enchanted shield, warrior bane
big boss, light armour, dragon helm, shield BSB

I was sticking to theme though.

EDIT- the space wolf fenrisian wolves can make for great and easy wolf rider models if you really want to.

Get rid of the squigs, they wont be doing enough at this point level, get rid of the spider riders, put the points into a unit of wolf riders with bows as your chaff, redirectors and general annoyances to your opponent.Then invest in either a shaman or a mangler squig. I would also drop the netters and add another fanatic if the points allow.
