I have lost both of the spear chukka's, as much as I like them I feel that I either need to take more (5-6) or none, I also lost the additional crew on the chariots and dropped the spears on the Boyz.

With the points I added a NG Shaman with dispel scroll (Purple Sun'd in a game that wasn't IF'd but failed the dispel roll, it hurt. Bad) I also through a few more gobbo's into the tarpit to use up the additional points and gave the squig herders another rank of NG's as they exploded very close to my lines, which was funny but not all that effective

i would drop the fencers blades on the shaman, dont see much point in them, but dont know much about O&G in the new edition

Ratvan 05-22-12 06:22 PM

They make him WS10 with T5 and only 3 wounds but 4+ ward and therefore a lot more survivable in my support unit, thing is I need him in that unit to make them stubborn as the unit of big uns is typically smaller as they're not a front line unit (also because I tend to throw them forward when I should really hold back a tad)

khrone forever 05-22-12 06:24 PM

why dont you jsut move him to the back of the unit?

Ratvan 05-22-12 06:30 PM

Its not very Orcy, plus it really surprises people when I cast Fists of Gork on him (makes my shaman, WS10, S7, A5)

khrone forever 05-22-12 06:40 PM

i would love to see someones face :biggrin:
