View Full Version : Can you even kill this many orcs?

Here's the horde list I'm putting together. Standard deployment is chequerboard with goblins up front and orcs behind. Any thoughts welcome.

Orc Warboss-grt wpn, Drog's armour 146pt
Orc BSB-Nog's Banner 117pt
Night Gobbo Shaman-lvl 2, 1 dispel scroll 120 pt
Night Gobbo Shaman-lvl 2, 1 dispel scroll 120 pt

23 Black Orcs - grt wpn, full command 309 pt
23 Big Un's - Sh, Full command 212 pt
23 Orcs - sh, full command 172 pt

25 Gobbos - LA,Sh,mus 79 pt
25 Gobbos-LA,Sh,mus 79 pt
24 Night Gobbos - Sh,mus,2 fanatics 102 pt
24 Night gobbos - Sh,mus,2 Fanatics 102 pt

2 Gobbo Chariots 120 pt

10 Wolf Riders-sp,sh,mus 126 pt
10 Wolf Riders-sp,sh,mus 126 pt

2 Spear Chukkas 70 pt

1995pts 206 models 6/4 casting

I was thinking of replacing all the gobbos with night gobbos - the same 79 pts gets me 25 Ng with Sh and 1 Fanatic. I'm also not sure that the ratio of gobbos to orcs is right yet, but I think more play testinng will tell all. Thanks for any advice you might have. Waaaagggghh!

Cheers, V

WEll i would at least be _very_careful on heavy terrain game boards, and against marchblocker. This could possibly bottleneck your army and make them block eachother. And then let the enemy pick one by one off.

But with good deployment and use of the wolfriders to take on the marchblockers, you should do fairly well i suppose. At least my mortal chaos army would have problems with killing all of them ;)

add another orc to each of the bigger units, and rank them 5x5
6x4 may give more attacks, but if you lose a few, !poof! there goes your rank bonus.

change the wolfies to 4 of 5 for more manuverability, or 1 of 5, and one of 15 as medium cav.

You don't have to kill that many Orcs. Just have to make them run away.

I guess that means to kill the big uns, the Black Orcs and the Chariots, and then force some panic tests.

I could, I did, I have.

To the list, it needs more Dinnas, so Night Dinnas fill that area, and more Dorcs, so Dorcs with Shields fill that area, instead of Black Dorcs and Savage Dorcs, then people would have trouble killing all them Dorcs!

Goblin - Dinna, ;)

Another big unit of Orcs IMO.

think about the LD though

i'd give it a go when i get that daemonic legion :evilgrin:

seems good, but animosity could scupper the game plan and the loss of a shaman wouldn't be healthy for your army

my whole army causes fear so i think i have a respectable chance at making them run :)
