i love black orcs, probably because im trying to run a mainly infantry army and they are good general purpose infantry, and not TOO expensive. then again im keeping regular greenkins out ( i dont like any orc or goblin models produced since GW hired brian nelson).
Im thinking about buying one of the new box sets. I quite like the minis (better than all other orcs anyway) and i have been told to get some for my CD’s. If they arent that good ill just use them in my Night Goblin army im planning on building for a bit of fun.
In 6th ed I used to run a unit of 12 for a more supporting role and they quelled animosity (best thing ever!!!) Though now I very rarely bring them out. Will give them another go in the near futre an see if my tastes have changed and mix it up a bit. 2 units of standard orcs are better IMHO.
