Hi all, I just started Orcs and Goblins, and Fantasy for that matter. I bought Gorbad Ironclaw because a client wanted me to paint it. The deal fell through and I ended up with a kick ass model, both in looks and stats. I have a few questions. (I dont have the rulebook yet so bere with me)

Can I take an all Orc army, (no gobbos)? If yes is this a stupid idea?

I am looking to make a 1000 point army to begin with, can I use Gorbad? In
40k most heroes have a points limit (eg. Azreal can only play in armies over 2000pts) Is this a good choice?

And last, what would be a good starting point. I dont want to get a huge box set, because I like to take my time and slowly build up an army?

Doubly last, I dont know the points values, so is this close to 1000 pts, and is it good?

So, thats it. So sorry for asking so much in one post, but I am making the big trek to GW in two days, and want to know what to get. Thanks!
