looks very sound, but i would suggest making the the Black orc unit fairly larger, and adding in some Boar Chariots.

Cut down the orc mobs to around 25 and then use the spare points and the points saved by reducing the mobs to make a larger black orc unit. By 5 at least.

Cut down on 10 of those night gobboz if you can to further fuel more points towards a chariot or something.

Yeah, like FH said, drop those orc mobs to at least 25 and the night gobbos. If you need some pts you can always drop a fanatic.

I am not sure, but if I remember correctly, spiderriders are fast cav. If so, I would split tem into 2 units (they don't get rank bonuses). That way you can get the maximum use out of them.

Definitly splurge some more pts on Black orcs! Man, you can never have enough of those guys!

Lastly, Have you ever considered a Wyvern? Damn tose things are scary with a warboss on!!!

Well, there you have it... I its usable advice! :D
