this is a post i put up on the 40kforold men site back in april i believe, but it seemed to fit with this discussion,so here is my 1500pt Orc list (with price comparisons at rrp, cheaper at 40kforoldmen.com)
(note. this may have been before the price rises so it may be a little out)

Krudger (boss) on gore chariot with stabby sneek. 160pts
Krudger on gore with zappy sneek. 155pts
Stik waver (bsb) 30pts

Ax Horde with full command 195pts
Ax Horde with full command 195pts
Ax Horde with full command 195pts
Morax Regiment with full command 170pts
Morax Regiment with full command 170pts
Gore Chariot Troop with full command 115pts
Gore Chariot Troop with full command 115pts

Total 1500pts

Now i'd love to say that i have considered all the tactical options and come up with an uber hard balanced list. The truth is, the ax and morax units, along with krudger on gore, Zappy sneek and the stik waver all come in Gakamak's Green Tide. It's a winner IMO. over 130 plastic orcs plus the metal character set for £100! i compared it to gw prices and you would be amazed at the difference.

£13.80 for plastic warboss on boar and BSB
£ 8.20 for metal goblin shaman
£162.00 for 90 orc boyz
£82.00 for 40 black orcs
£22.50 for orc and goblin army book.
Total £288.50

compared to;

£99.99 for Gakamak's Green Tide
£00.00 for Orc army list (free download)

Total £99.99

total saving of £188.51

No Brainer really.

I dont know the prices for the chariots yet as they are not on Mantics site at the moment. GW's are £15.50 each. i would expect Mantic's to be around £18.00 for three or maybe cheaper.
