I got a pretty convincing victory over an Empire army with this list (even killed a Steam Tank*) but I'm not completely sure this list is as amazing as it could be. The Pump Wagons let me down unsurprisingly and I think the 2nd SO Big Boss could use a different item load out but but beyond that I'm not sure what deserves replacing. Opinions, comments and outright criticisms would be appreciated.


*Only required multiple bolt thrower hits, a wyvern riding Savage Orc Warboss and the charge of the Savage Orc Boar Boyz.

I have no experience with Savage Orcs, but you taking a Wyvern at 2000 points with your general is pretty gutsy. Play an army with Cannon, and you may be looking at a leaderless horde.

Almost 800 points (1/3rd) in heros may be pricey, but if it works for you then great.

Excellent, much needed criticism. Thank you Goldenwolf.


True enough a mounted Warboss is a loaded proposition but the Savages are generally able to carry on without his guiding influence. A LD8 Big Boss as acting general, battle standard and being frenzied (as such immune to pesky psychology tests) should be enough to keep the horde on the march.

In retrospect though 800 on characters does seems a tch much. Its just he's such an excellent attack character, what with the flying and being in close combat by turn two much to the delight of all involved. Or just my amusement.

Bah, oh well. Anyone else have any thoughts?

You will be asked to take the point costs of items out of your post. Just givin you a heads up. Its against forum rules. Other then that, I think you will find your general to be baited around alot. Same with your boyz units, as goblins are easy to kill.

Thank you for responding to a thread made over a year ago about an army I no longer use?
