Okay, so a quick rewrite if you saw the last list. I am trying to go for the most random and unreliable list that I think can still win battles (just). The reason being... I have never played a truly fun army. Yea sure they are all competeitive and great to play with, but none are as fun nor are they as funny.

What do you think?

I'd drop a shaman, get another squad of gobbos and 3 fanatics, then put the 2 30s in 3 20s, and get another 3 fanatics for 18 fanatics! If thats not crazy enough get even more!

I want this to be competitive as well... I'm going to need the numbers in my spear units.


And the shear amount of Magic will be even less predictable than more fanatics.


If it dosnt work I may change it.





Please note, List change.
Dropped 2 squig herds
Added another unit archers

just some food for thought....

i have seen someone head to a GT with a similar army to this but he had one unit of 200+ goblins with loads of other units of goblins around it with loads of fanatics. he worked it out that to do any damage you would have to charge the goblin unit (had ALL his characters in it) and face the wrath of sooooo many fanatics it got silly - plus he worked it out that the fanatics he had couldnt actually cause enough casualties for a panic check on the big goblin unit


you did say you wanted a fun list, seeing your opponents face when you deploy those units is quite a treat

Well for 40k my chaos armies are my big project. For Fantasy, These little guys will be.


600 points for 200 gobbos.... 800 if i give them spears, 835 with nets, 910 with 3 fanatics.

Ouch...

12 Fanatics = Chaos ;D

Your list will be fun but damn your taking a risk with those fanatics, I had a friend who wiped out two of his own gobbo units with one fanatic was hilarious.
