What point limit are you looking at? Is it for friendly or tournament play?

Well a decent start for an army would be something like this

Savage Orc Warboss - 245
Basha's Axe of Stunty Smashin', Armour of Silvered Steel

Black Orc Big Boss - 165
Battle Standard Bearer, Sword of Battle, Talisman of Endurance

Savage Orc Shaman - 155
Level 2, Lucky Shrunken Head

33 Savage Orc Big'Uns - 398 pts
Extra Hand Weapon, Full Command

It comes to 963 Points so plenty of room for what ever else you want in your army, the whole unit has a 5++ ward save so is fairly durable. The SO Warboss has a Leadership 9, 2+ save (with 5++ ward save) and hits with 6 S7 Attacks in the first round of combat and 6 S6 attacks after that. The BSB will allow you to have the same ward save as the rest of the unit and hits with 4 S5 attacks in first round and 4 S4 thereafter, more importantly he allow re rolls to tests and can negate animosity rolls (trust me you'll learn tot live with these)

The only thing that I'd add is, for a 2k point list you still need to spend 102 points in core, its not the most competitive but can (and will) cause a lot of damage when the unit hits and I feel that it'd be a good start point for a new fantasy player especially if you're not used to playing with low(ish) leadership armies.

If you have the time feel free to look under some of my older posts regarding the Orcs and Goblins as well as a list building tactica that I made some time ago https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=110375

Hope to have been some help
