    2000pt Night Goblin Army - my quest to create the prefect list...

    My quest to bring you the best possible 2000pt "pure" night goblin army to the table. I've limited myself to only taking night goblin units/characters. The one exception I have made is for trolls as I plan on using the metal stone troll models and believe they fit the theme rather nicely.

    CHARACTERS

    Night Goblin Warboss (General)
    - Axe of Stunty Smashin
    - Armour of Destiny
    - Shield
    = 158pts

    Night Goblin Great Shaman
    - Level 4
    = 175pts

    Night Goblin Shaman
    - Level 2
    - Dispel Scroll
    = 110pts

    Night Goblin Big Boss (BSB)
    - Standard of Disipline
    - Light Armour/Shield
    = 74pts

    Night Goblin Big Boss
    - Great Weapon
    = 34pts

    Night Goblin Big Boss
    - Great Weapon
    = 34pts

    Night Goblin Big Boss
    - Great Weapon
    = 34pts

    Night Goblin Big Boss
    - Great Weapon
    = 34pts

    CORE

    55 Night Goblins
    ***Warboss with all big bosses Here***
    - Full Command
    - Nets
    - 3 Fanatics
    = 315pts

    30 Night Goblins
    - Musician
    - Short Bows
    - 2 Fanatics
    = 150pts

    30 Night Goblins
    - Musician
    - Short Bows
    - 2 Fanatics
    = 150pts

    SPECIAL

    Squig Herd
    - 30 Squigs
    - 10 Herders
    = 270pts

    10 Squig Hoppers
    = 120pts

    6 Trolls
    = 210pts

    RARE

    Mangler Squig
    = 65pts

    Mangler Squig
    = 65pts

    TOTAL POINTS = 1998pts

    Da plan is to place all the big bosses and the warboss in the large unit of night goblins with the nets. The unit will be deployed 5 wide with the bsb hanging around in the second rank to take advantage of the +1 LD. The trolls will generally be beside the large unit of night goblins for the LD tests.

    The hoppers are in because I like the models and they fit the theme. I wish they could ambush or scout as that would make them way more effective in my opinion.

    I believe I have made the best list possible with the exception of taking the hoppers. If I really wanted to optimize the list I think I'd drop the hoppers in favour of a night goblin big boss on cave squig. As I believe he does a better job at hunting warmachines etc then the hoppers do.

    Thanks for the comments. Just in the process of putting the army together, plan on getting a game in this weekend with them.

    I've looked at dropping the 10 squigs for the following

    Night Goblin Big Boss
    - Giant Cave Squig
    - Light Armour/Shield/Spear
    - Dragonhelm
    *Either Dawnstone for 3+ re-rollable save or mask of eeee for some terror fun

    This guy comes in at the same price as the unit of hoppers and fills the warmachine hunter/small unit hunter job role better.
