Hi

I have a small-medium Orcs and Goblins (But mainly Goblins) army and I'm wondering what to add next. I'm quite new and haven't played many games so I'm not really sure what's good and what's not but I've found that I need more punch in the army. I have the numbers, but not the oomph that I want.

My army is:
Orc Big Boss on Boar with Spear

Orc BSB

40 Night Goblin Spearmen

10 Spider Riders

20 Night Goblin Archers

19 Orcs with Full Command

Troll (Don't like to use because of terrible paint job and low LD)

Night Goblin Shaman and Big Boss.

Now I know I can;t use all of these units in one game (too many characters) but the rest of it seems quite legitamate. Now I'm thinking more Orcs and some Black Orcs, maybe adding in some War Machines. As soon as I hit the 1750pt mark I'll add Grimgor Ironhide and another unit of Black Orcs (I love 'em!). Alternatively, I could go down the route of some Boar Boyz to put the Big Boss with, as the new models are really great, and from what I'm told they pack quite a punch on the tabletop

Any advice? Money is a limit, but not that much of one.

Thanks, great. Should the Black Orcs have a Magic Banner or no? Nogg's Banner of Butchery looks devastating on 'em, but It might be better on some more normal Orcs via BSB.

For a second unit of Orcs, should they too have shields or two choppaz?

Giant

That comes out to 1998pts. I was at a loose end by 1793pts, so I added the Giant for a bit of fun. It's mainly for taking on things like Trolls, Ushabti, Treemen, Varghulfs etc. The reasons I have Nt. Goblin Archers are: it saves money, as I allready have them (and buying a regiment of metal models is just terrible) and that They are a similar points price, hence more bows for the money. Admittedly shorter ranged, but that's balanced for the higher number of shots.

Any comments?

UPDATE: Added more Black Orcs, got rid of a fanatic, the Magic Banner on the BSB, and put the Night gobs as one unit. I would deploy it with the Black Orcs in the centre, flanked by the Boyz to stop flank charges. Spearmen and one Spear Chukka hold one flank, whilst the Archers and the other Spear Chukka hold the other. The Giant and the Rock Lobber both go behind the main battleline, ready to counter attack/wear down tough enemies.
