I've got a 3000+ point Orcs & Goblins army sitting around gathering dust, and it seems like now is as good a time as any to revitalize the army. I'm not really concerned about what changes are on the horizon with 8th Edition-- I'll deal with that when I have the book in front of me.

I originally put my Orcs away because I was playing them like they were Warriors of Chaos-- lots of Black Orcs. It wasn't playing to the army's strength or play style, and so I lost literally 99 of 100 games I played with the army.

I really like the new Boar Boyz models, however, and I was thinking I'd center the project around those. I'm not sure it's a "good" army though, in so much as that it may or may not actually play to the strengths of the army. Basically, the Boars go up the middle and smash stuff, the Goblins act as flankers and screening units, and the shooty 'fings shoot. Simple enough. So let me know what you all think.

I do like a full cav army, but I've played against a few similarly built like this and you need the first charge or your wrecked. IMO id replace one of your wolves for a Spider rider unit. their fast, go through obstacles, and have poison which is amazing for any army to have!

I would drop the doom diver's :/ considering your a cav army and you will be in combat by turn 2 so you will not get many shots, i must be honest i wouldnt know what to spend those extra points on, spear chukas are ok but they have a low balistic skill :/ if you dropped these as well you could afford another boar boy unit :) oh and i would recomend recomen pork's pigsticka :) extra attacks for the rank of your enemy :) and its a spear :) plus ur gnash's thats one mean boss :) hope this helps :)
