So these are two lists I've committed to painting during the Tale of AoSPainters, and wanted to know how others think they might stack up against each other:

Night Goblin Great Moonclan
NG Warboss
NG Shaman
5 Squig Hoppers
20 Night Goblins (Spears and Shields)
20 Night Goblins (Spears and Shields)
20 Night Goblins (Bows)
3 Fanatics

Bretonnia Peasant Militia
Paladin
10 Men at Arms
10 Men at Arms
10 Bowmen
10 Bowmen
Field Trebuchet

It's a little leaning toward the Night Goblins, but the Brets have one model too many for an immediate sudden death.

In my experience the night goblins are pathetic. But I could be wrong.

Long time goblin general here. Combine the two units og spear-gobs into one horde and you should take them to town anyday.

At this level, ditch the wiz and put a BSB in the gobbos. It's far more beneficial ;D... or essential... yeah, running away can be easy... and infectious with panic XD

The squighoppers are ideal for chewing through cheap unarmoured humans. Skirmishers to boot so further -1 hit. You could balance that up by adding defensive stakes from somewhere.

I've used lists like this against similar empire lists only with mortar>treb and outrider/rifles>archers. The age of the Bret book is it's real weakness :( pity.

God forbid you lose initiative and don't get to attack first. The saves for gobbos make it hard in my experience at least.
