Don't be so hasty young 'un. :) Here are some things for you to consider:

1) Your warboss is quite vulnerable with just a 4+ AS and he's not that hitty either. I'd suggest you mount him on a boar, ditch the ring and give him some nifty magic weapon.

2) The orc shaman does not really need extra protection as he should not be in a fight. Throw the amulet away and give him Nibbla's ring. Also, four mushrooms is a bit of overkill with the night goblin. He'll just blow his head with the first or second shroom and then the rest will be useless.

3) I've found 25 orcs to be the optimal size, though some people prefer 30. It's just a matter of taste really, but I'd suggest dropping a couple. Same goes for the NG unit. Sure they're goblins and there should be a lot of them, but I would not be comfortable with a unit that costs over 200 points and has LD5.

4) Divide the spider unit into two units of five with a musician in both units. Use them to harass the enemy and redirect charges. Bows are quite useless, but it can be fun to take a few pot shots at the enemy so do as you wish.

5) 10 Squig hoppers is way overkill. I'd go for a unit of 5 to 8.

Otherwise looks good. Happy gaming. :)

i've been playing with orcs for over 10 years and this is by far one of the best armys i've ever seen, those night goblins good move, as for the general they come in real handy, other then that, good army!

Put this on your Black Orc Warboss and he is a machine:
Ulags Akrit Axe, Warboss Umms Best Boss At, Biggeds Kickin Boots + Enchanted Shield (that is with Heavy Armour 3+ Armour Save, 5+ Wardsave and he kick butt with 5 S6 attacks with reroll in first round of combat!!!)

Maybe a chariot instead of stone thrower (never any luck with mine)

When it comes to shaman use either 2 goblins or 2 orcs (you have a better chance to get waaagh with 2 orcs)

Put nets on night goblins!

When you use pumpwagons - take 2 for one choice!!!

Seems like a good setting to me, but Akrit axe gives S6 in the first round of combat and re-rolls all the time. Also, I'd add a boar to this. 1+ save is just so much better than 3+ and its not that pricy either.

Mate, listen to the advice you are given! ;)

Split the spiders up into 2 units. The extra 5 do not add a rank bonus, they are fast cavalry! You will use them to bait enemy chargers and die horribly, so a min unit is required.

A spider musician is useful so drop an orc or two to pay for it.

If you lose a few more orcs and take the units down to 25 you can afford a wolf chariot, which are the best chariots in the game for their points.

And just my opinion on magic - 4 levels is not going to cut the mustard. Either go magic heavy and get a few spells through or just take a level 1 scroll caddy. Lets face it, you aren't going to be hanging around - if the boyz are not in combat at the latest by turn 3 there is something wrong. So you may have to weather 3 turns of magic - 3 DD and 2 scrolls will be enough to do that IMHO.

Ok ok ok ok. Spiders have been changed. Understood.

The orcs will stay at 30. Size matters for these guys.

Ive already got a couple of armies with chariots, so ill not miss em. Plus the pump wagons are cheaper and way cooler.

As for magic, i have 4 levels, one bound spell, 3x magic mushrooms. Thats plenty.
