Hi all,

This army design has the same basic structure as my Skaven (4 combat units, 4 sacrifical units) with Orcy tweaks.

Orcy Horde

1 Black Orc Warboss Ironback Boar, HA, Shield, Best Boss 'At 219
Ironback Boar for boss as marginal cost over boar 11 points, for D3 S5 impact hits.
Big Boss has 2+ save, T5, 5+ ward. Not too bad.

1 Black Orc Big Boss Boar, HA, Battle Standard 180
Mork's Spirit Totem
BSB has T5 and 3+ save. Not bad for a BSB. Also provides 0-3 dispel dice for the army

1 Orc Shaman 2 dispel scrolls, Boar 131
All characters mounted. M7, +2AS and S5 attack on charge, why not?

25 Orcs Standard, Musician, Champion 180
25 Orcs Standard, Musician 165
25 Orcs Standard, Musician 165
25 Orcs Standard, Musician 165
Orcs are like harder clanrats. S4 (1st round) and T4 with 4+ save. Not bad. Sadly they don't get ratling guns. But as it's 7th ed, who cares?


20 Night Goblins Short Bows, Fanatic 85

Gobbos are my slaves. 50% more expensive, but with a tiny bit of dakka and some surprises in 3 of the units. Probably should have all 3 fanatics in one unit, maybe.

1 Spear Chukka 35

4 bolt throwers for anti big stuff duty.

6 Squig Hoppers 90

4 pump wagons for comedy and the faint chance they'll add 2-12 S4 hits to a combat.

Not much magic at all. Just 6 dispel dice and 2 scrolls.
Lacks a hammer unit, although the boss unit does D3 S5 hits + 3 S4 attacks, 3 S5 attacks and 4 S6 attacks.
You'll note the multiple redundancy (Duplicates). With only 2 units I can rely on each turn, I need back up for plans failing.

One idea I was considering was 10 savage Orc Big Uns with extra choppas. 140 points for 15+ S5 attacks on round 1. Sadly they are not allowed to take magic banners. Perhaps the thought of 4 S5 attacks per model, with Banna of Butchery, forced the restriction...

But 25 Orcs with standard + muso is about the same points and a bit more reliable. Hmmm...

So, how would you filth it up?


Cheers,

Gazzor
