Army Name: Hagburt's Ork Punishers

Special Notes
- I'm testing this tonight. It's a "This is what's painted" army, not a "best practices" army. Let me know what you think should be changed, upgraded, discarded, etc! The three mounted lords/heroes go with the Black Knights to make a 10 man unit. The spear-Kapitan goes with the spears, Helga goes with the Great Swords, and the Battle Wizard goes with the Free Company. The warrior-priest escorts the Flagellants, of course!

Well, they were punished by the orks. I was doing fine until the Free Company decided to retreat in the face of the enemy, and then there were the Fanatics. Went from nine knights to...one. Damn fanatics.

What's everyone's opinion? More Flagellants, more Spearmen, more Greatswords?

I dont think greatswords will earn their points back most of the time, a basic mans profile and ASL doesnt exactly equal win IMO, but you know there stats already. I would say more flaggellants, dont know where to free the points as thats up to you, but nothing says Rawr like a bunch of unbreakable self mutilating guys with flails!

If you are facing O&Gs as your main opponent, then you should invest in a mortar or rocket battery. In my opinion, FC should only be used as an attachment, not as a separate unit. You also don't have the very common choice of Halberdiers (maybe on purpose) that would help against the T4 orks that would be in the O&G armies out there.

Also the cannons are Special Choices, not rare.

No, I didn't choose halberdiers cause they're not painted yet. I have 40 waiting on the prep table, so that's going to be a choice later. I like a big block of pirates, I know, it's a theme thing. Though likely they're going to retire into a 20-man detachment of my halberdiers.
