Right, Since no-one has responded I'm going to assume it's alright.

Welcome to the forum. You didn't wait very long before posting a follow up complaint about lack of feedback. Please note that you posted on a Friday which will be a work day for many people and this is not a big forum. I can appreciate that you might be excited to get your warband finished so that you can play a battle. Maybe you want to play your first battle this weekend. That is great but please be patient.

For your Black Orc warband you did what I did with my warband and took two Black Orc Young'Uns. However, only one Young'Un can be upgraded to a Black Orc Young'Un. I would also drop some armour (perhaps keeping some heavy armour on your Black Orc Boss if you really want to keep it) and add a few Orc Boyz or Orc Shootaz. You need some cannon fodder to protect your heroes or you will have to lose two heroes before routing and that will be a big loss of income.

I love armour but unfortunately it is not cost effective in base Mordheim. That is another reason why I recommend dropping it initially and buying it later when you are crushing your brother and rolling in gold crowns. You can follow the link in my signature for the house rules that we use to make armour more cost effective. There are lots of threads on this forum that also discuss armour.

I cannot comment on the Troll Brood since I haven't played that warband and neither have I looked closely at its rules.

Welcome here. Smile

I'm very happy you considered taking our Troll brood warband. Smile
Besides one mistake (Cuzzinz cost 35gc to hire) your starting warband is similiar to the one we used in the testing phase.


This was was our take on the starting warband:

Big 'Addy-136
-2 Clubs

Bruvver-118
-Axe, Club

Bruvver-125
-Double-handed weapon

Yung Cuzzin-41
-2 Clubs

Yung Cuzzin-41
-2 Clubs

2 Whelpz-36
-Dagger, Club

Total: 497 gc

With this setup you have 2 Whelpz to sacrifice in bad matches (ie, Gunnery School of Nuln was a nightmare to start against) and enough members to lower the stupidity's drawback. Just stick together and everything will work fine.
Since we are still testing the warband, I would appreciate to hear any thoughts, problems or suggestions concering the rules. Smile

I'll mirror RL's comments on the BO's. No henchmen is a bad move early in the campaign (though a troll can be fun). Unless you are using alternative armour rules, I'd drop the armour on your heroes (except maybe the boss), swap the axes for clubs and buy some boys with clubs (or naked). You don't want to expose your heroes too much so you want henchmen at the front to begin with rather than providing cover fire. My experience anyway, it depends on your playstyle and the amount of terrain you use.
