Gundabad Orcs

Postby DavePauwels » Wed Dec 19, 2012 12:58 pm

Okay, I am just throwing this out as a starting point. I can think of no better place to get help and advice. I am hoping to make this a reality before Adepticon.

Azog, on the White Warg @225
Now, I'm assuming/hoping GW releases a model in February now that he's such a prominent antagonist. Otherwise, I would substitute Bolg in for his father.

Fimbul on Fell Warg @60

Narzug @50

Heroes @ 335

12 Orc Hunters
4 with Orc bows @36
2 with two-handed weapons @18
1 with banner @33
5 standard @40

3 Orc Hunters on Fell Wargs @48
3 Orc Hunters on Fell Wargs with Orc bows @51

4 Fell Wargs @36

Warriors @262

Total 597

From a competitive standpoint, most will probably tell you that you have too many heroes and not enough "warriors". However, from a themeing perspective, its perfect! It also helps (you) that is a small army and you can get it painted in time :wink:

Quick heads-up he is not on the list to be released in February. GW had accidentally posted up their skeleton of releases for February a week back or so . . . can hope for a March or April release.

Dave, any army you have is fine. I just want to get you playing. We can work on numbers later. :P

Not to take this off topic but has anyone noticed the Orc Hunter Warg Riders are cheaper points and better stats than the old Warg Riders?

The old warg riders were overpriced anyway.

It's also because the old warg riders were Orthanc half-breeds, skulking cowards, riding stunted dogs. These are Gundabad wargs with Misty Mountain Orcs- a whole breed apart!

How much play time have you gotten with the Fell Warg riders? I can assume from their profile that the riders fight better dismounted than mounted due to the extra attack, though being able to charge models you can't see is a nice feature. It definitely makes Elven Cloaks less useful around them.

Well, I'm working on them. My hope is to have enough done to play some games with Jamie next month. I'm starting with a mix of foot and mounted Hunter Orcs, so we'll see how that shakes out.

Here's a "starter" 250 point list:

Fimbul mounted on fell warg @60 points

7 Hunter Orc
3 bows, 2 two-handed weapons, 2 swords @61 points

6 Hunter Orcs on Fell Wargs
2 bows, one banner @129
