The list looks good. Even though you lack serious, fast-moving hitting power (apart from your chariot and mounted Boss), you have five big mean units that will prove hard to defeat.

I\'m concerned however with your mounted hero. I don\'t think a lone, mounted hero has a great survivability. He risks to get shot quickly, unless he sneaks around and strike at the same time as the rest of the army. Not very Orcish you\'ll say.

But I know how much damage he can deal on a charge (ooh, Tusk Charges...), so you could try and keep him for now.

Just don\'t let him charge alone.

You really lack any magic attack or defensive, which will probably mean that you will get hammered in the magic phase also you are missing a lot of hard hitting units. Also the warboss on the boar will get nailed so put him in a unit or get him a unit

I\'m thinking of getting a unit of Boarboyz for my mounted boss and a unit of Black Orcs for my foot boss.

Depending on their sizes and costs I may also add in a unit of night goblins with fanatics to bring the points up to 2000pts.

That sound good?

Don\'t bother with Boar Boyz, really too expensive for what you get, one of the poor choices in the new book. Put your mounted Boss in an infantry unit, don\'t worry about the lack of mobility, just think of the boar as extra armour.

I\'d change your Goblins to Night Goblins if you can, Fanatics and especially Netters are the future!

I would liquidate one of your Orc mobs and bring the other two up to larger sizes where they\'ll be more effective. With little to no armour these guys will die fast, so the more you have in a unit, the more survivable your Static CR will be.

Use your points to either make your General a Black Orc or invest in a small unit of Wolf Riders with spears to give you more tactical options.

I would say go Black Orcs. They will crumble ranks down fast and easy. Give them a shield and hand weapon so you have a 3+ armour save to keep your boyz alive.

ill tell ya wat u realy need to do is mos. def. take out dem arrer boyz and goblins out and put in some night gobins wit 3 fanatics. make the night goblins go up agenst their opponants strongest model, (like giant, shagoth, treeman etc.)and u will destroy it. NEVER USE ARRER BOYZ there just units to take up ur time by actually shootin them and a big waste of points. think about it... a unit of arrer boyz will at max kill 1 model a turn at long range, and ur probly not ganna get um ito close range, unless u march um up and if u do u would only get 5 shots in if ur smart and wont kill a think.:)
