The goblins and orcs army list seems to be lacking the ... orcs!
OK, fierce warriors can simulate orcs, albeit a lower variant of them. But then, no black orcs and no boar riders (if they exist in your universe).
In fact, when looking at the unit description, I see no unit as fielding orcs.

Think they are classed as the same creature in the rules. You can count boat riders as wolf riders, give the Warriors fierce and/or shieldwall.

Except that the orcs exist in the fantasy range, including the boar riders. And there are crosbowmen riding boars, or boar chariots.
Maybe the goblin and orc list should be a goblin only army list and that the orc army list is different and will be created later.

Orc and goblin was an interchangeable term for Tolkien.  Sounds good to me.   Smiley

I thought this was going to be about Orcs and his missus going on holiday.

Well that's what I thought this thread was going to tell us. I seem to remember him saying something about holidays a while back.

The old Orcs won't be coming over to the newer Warband ranges as they never really matched up very well with the newer Fantasy ranges unfortunately.  The same goes for the Ratmen and the regular Dwarves, all of those were more like 15mm figures.  We may look at adding some new Rats, or extra Orc/Goblin figures further down the line, but there's nothing planned at the moment.
