Hey,

I like the all goblin approach.However i do think you need to make your "fighting" units bigger though. Drop the fanatics in the archer units and use the points to make the fighters larger.Are you going to convert the spiders riders? A friend of mine did convert his spider riders into night gobbo`s looks very nice.

My thoughts.

Greetings,

Mark

Units of less than 30 goblins run away ever so fast. I can see the small cavalry units being annoying, and some powerful enough magic, but I reckon I could take it fairly easily with most armies. There are a few too many fanatics hanging about. If one 5 man squad of fast cav runs in front of your lines it'll die, but it'll draw 200pts of fanatics into the middle of the field where they're as much a hindrance to you as to the enemy.

"Who let the dogs out" comes to mind

I love it :)

Altough I'd probably go for fewer but bigger units, gobbos need all the rank bonus they can get. It also makes them less vounerable to missile fire.
But on a table with little terrain you can outmanouver most other armies so I can't really argue that it is wrong to do it your way.

Anyway, good luck! Must be a fun army with all those gobbos and fanatics. Chaos on the battlefield anyone?

Thats not that easy to pull off, since my units are placed next to each other, but not so close so the cav will draw the fanatics of each unit at a time, unless my oponent gets really lucky. But I get your point

I also try to target fast cav units with my magic and shooting hoping they flee

So how about this? I made main blocks have 30 gobbos each, and reduced the flanking units fanatics to 2 fanatics each, i also had to dispose of a unit champion, but who cares!
