I gave this list an outing today.
I didn't take enough notes for a proper battle report but I will do a breif one here.
30 Black Orks with BSB
30 Savage Orks with L2 and a hero
2 Goblin Charriots
It performed very well. Although I forgot about my spellbreaker and AoK thanks to not having looked at it for ages and not having them in my 1k list.
One of my fiends performed well, sacrificing itself to kill the mangler squig. The other didn't do much he didn't have a lot of chaff for me to target and the one charge I made against a chariot failed.
My, bloodletters. one unit was a let down, it needed 4" for a charge and got a 3, so it got minced by 2 charriots and a unit of black orcs. Not really their fault but I thought I had lost at that point.
The other unit performed brilliantly, it was blocked from charging in my second turn by my flamers which was frustrating as it missed a flank charge on the savage orcs but it eventually butchered the black orcs chariots and savage orcs in 2 turns.
The bloodletter unit was tied for most valuable unit with the flamers (which I ran as 2 units of 3) who killed the trolls with shooting and then finished them off in combat then got through most of his savage orc unit allowing the last few bloodletters to finish them off.
The horrors completely underperformed. They didn't manage to sucessfully cast once, although that could still be considered a contribution I guess as they did draw some dispell dice. Other than that they just bunkered my herald.
I will probably try them again as it allowed me to be more agressive with the flamers than I could have if they had the herald, but I think 10 more 'letters would have served me much better.
Both heralds performed well, although my HoT had me baffled every magic phase as I had no idea what to cast with all those spells.
The furies performed poorly due to a failed charge and getting stomped by the savage orcs as they had the animosity result that lets them turn around march and charge, but that wasn't really their fault.
All in all I was pleased with how the list performed. I had some horrible luck and forgot about my dispel scroll and still won.
I think if I wanted to make the list more competetive I would make the 'letters up to 2 blocks of 30 and maybe drop a fiend for more flamers, but I might suffer against more chaffy armies then.
