    Re: orcs and goblins tactica.

    Yeah, Nets are absolutely fantastic. They're BETTER than a +1 Toughness upgrade. Of course, there'll be times you roll 1s for all the nets you have in 3 combats (sigh)... but still, they're great. Remember, however, that they're not cumulative (so getting 2 Net-equipped units into combat with a single enemy unit doesn't give them -2S). However, it's still useful, as if you roll a 1 for one unit with Nets, the other one still gets a chance.

    Re: orcs and goblins tactica.

    I have managed to roll ones for BOTH units with nets.....It's a talent.:confused:

    I like to go for the long, longshots. I keep the Orc characters away from my Gobbo units. My gobbos don't usually/normally win HtH or battles.

    BUT.....when they DO win......It's good for laughs for weeks.

    Speaking of Night Goblins with Nets, I've been thinking about running a Gorbad Ironclaw bunker in a game. Use him for my general, and hide him and his 18" leadership bubble behind the line in a unit of Night Gobbos with fanatics and Nets. The fanatics are fun to throw through your line units and hopefully get people to land on, and the nets help if things go horribly wrong and Gorbad gets into trouble - since you want to keep him from getting hurt as much as possible.

    Sounds pretty expensive for a bunker, more like a layered battle line, but yes that could work.

    Gorbad is still a good fighter though and with +1 toughness you could keep him front line to take advantage of it. Nice thing is if something nasty comes his way his boar is fast enough to get him away from it.

    Isn't he a rather fragile choice due to his utter lack of a Ward Save?

    Re: orcs and goblins tactica.

    Gorbad Ironclaw also suffers from being your battle standard bearer too. If he breaks from combat, that's him gone. That makes you want to put as many eggs into your boar-boy unit as possible to avoid that happening, and then you're over-reliant on that unit.

    The fleeing = death rule for (battle) standard bearers is one of the rules for 8th edition I truly dislike (no idea why they made it like this).
