Something a little different (1.5k O&G)
 
Right then, I have a tournament coming up that I was going to be taking my Tomb Kings too but I have yet to crack a list at this points level that I am happy and confident with.

I decided that I'd try something a little different with my Orcs and Goblins and crack out some of the miniatures that are simply gathering dust.

Without further ado, my 'gunline' Orcs and Gobbo's

So I think that this could provide quite a shock to the players taking part, I'm obviously not looking to win (taking O&G) so I thought what the hell, break out something new.

I can still compete at range with the O&G Bows, it sounds funny I know but those few wounds all tot up and at the end of the day they're still Orcs and Strength 4 in the First Round of Combat.

So what do you think? Am I completely mad? (well I know I am a little) but what do you reckon?

Nothing funnier than seeing a O&G outshoot wood elves. Liking the idea, i still think you should have something very heavy hitting for the counter attack. squig riders may be suited to this list for a counter attack.

I would switch the little unit to savage orc big uns with AHW and have the characters sit in the bigger units. That means you would have a unit of ~12 orcs putting out 24 S5 attacks at a higher WS.. there's a serious counter attack for when the enemy gets close :P

I was looking into putting in a couple of small(ish) Squig Herds but not entirely sure what to drop to get them in..... how about

Hmmmmmm SO counter attack unit is not a bad idea at all...

It is a fun list. My older son (21) likes to run orc arrer boyz units. They are clearly not optimal relative to cheaper night goblin archer units and savage orc big uns but are a fun unit to play. I have run a smaller orc arrer boyz unit just as a finishing unit when something has a wound or two left on it or to protect the war machines from light scout and flying units.

I would recommend adding doom divers, they are so much more accurate and potent than the war machines you have. I don't think you need a second shaman. One or two cheap night goblin shamans e might be a fun alternative to teh lvl 2 shaman. Also, mangler squigs are better in pairs and with snotling pump wagons and chariots to provide target saturation. A single mangler is vulnerable to being shot up or someone running something cheap into it and having the mangler blow itself up.

Total 1496

So dropped a Arrer Boy and the Level 2 to fit in the second Mangler Squig and another pair of Chukka's.

I just don't get on that well with the DD, I hear everyone raving about them but for me they just never seem to do as much for me as the Rock Lobba's do, it maybe my meta but I just never really encountered one of those targets that I'd rather have more accuracy and less damage.
