Yesterday I had a chance to play for the very first time with the new O&G army I've been painting. Just a normal pitched battle vs. LM's skaven with 2000 point limit. I didn't have much choise of troops as I have just a tad over 1000 points of rank & file ready.
We used full deployment rules and as I had my wolfboys as an advance force I was able to make the skaven set up first. It also allowed me to designate a flanking force.
All pictures by me and LM.
The situation after scouting moves and skaven turn 1. The skaven line from bottom to top: beastmasters with giant rats, ally chaos dwarf mortar, clanrats, a jezzail, slaves, clanrats, slaves, ally chaos dwarfs, behind trees a jezzail, stormvermins and scouts.
Gobbos before being mortared.

Goblin stickas after being hit thrice by cencer bearers.
At that point more than half of my troops in points value were either killed or running and that was the break point we had agreed on. Orcs and goblin fled the field. The skaven were victorious.
Thank you LM for a good game once again. I´ll be back!
This was my first time playing 3rd edition WFB with green skins and I learned a lot.
- Goblins are not as bad as you would think
- Orc arrers are pretty useless as missile troops, I´ll use
them as bow wielding boyz in the future
- I sould have contested the center with my best troops,
it takes a way too much time to march from the flanks
to get to where the action is
- Don´t expect your orcs to manouver like elves
