Hi. After playing Dwarfs for a while, I felt the need of a new challenge. So I bought an unpainted army on ebay. I think I will need to supplement this army a bit. So to all you orc veterans out there. What kind of troops should I buy to make a lean and mean army, that can take the fight out of WoC, DE and VC (mostly).

This is what I got:

4 x Orc Warbosses on Boars

1 x Orc Warboss on Foot

1 x Orc Warboss with Battle Standard

1 x Orc Shaman

2 x Goblin Warboss

24 x Black Orcs

1 x Giant

4 x Orc Boar Boys (old metal ones, still in box)

4 x Trolls (one is missing a head)

9 x Goblin fanatics

2 x Goblin Doom Diver

1 x Goblin Spear Chukka

3 x Orc Boar Chariots

6 x Squig Riders

29 x Goblin Spider Riders

20 x Goblin Wolf riders

53 x Orc Boys with various hand weapons/Spears standards/musicians/champions

140 x Gobins with spears/hand weapons - standards/musicians/champions

55 x Goblin Archers

18x Orc Arrer Boyz

2x Snotling Pump Wagon

Please let me hear your comments!!!

I tried this list on ETC comp rules, and LOS rules. VS an well tuned WoC army. And it was a close++ victory for him.

I have to do something with the following:

240 pts 15 x Forest Goblin Spider Riders With full command, is a total waste of points.
Next time I will use the wolfrides, they are 2 points cheaper, and I will deploy them as 2x5 units. And fully focus on them as fast cav, and not a fighting unit. Only as charge baiters, blocker etc.

As I was hit every round with pandemonium, and since the dices was jinxed, I suffered hard since I could not use the leaders LD. This made the trolls to never face any combat, since they failed every stupidity test. Som a mental note here, is to place a charachter(hero) in the unit.

Orc Chariot.
- Will not use this the next time. Will swap it with a mangler squig. To much points for this unit. I will also look into(maybe convert) the chariots to goblin chariots, since these are cheaper, and has unit size up to 3.

Snotling Pump Wagon.
Was hard to play this. I need to figure out som tactics, to make sure I will get the charge. It`s useless when charged (by chaos knights).

Goblin Spear Chukka.
Never made a hit. Low BS, combined with long range and other penealties, I will continue to use it for a while and see how it plays over a couple of matches.

Comments are very much welcome!!
