Arachnaphobes beware! Warren and Darrell are assembling a hordes of skittering beasties to scare the tights off your granny! But can you make a competitive Orcs & Goblins army using the spiders? Let’s find out…
Great stuff guys! I just wish that Orc week could be every week!
I suspect that the spiders would struggle against ranked up units. The key would be, as you guys say, to send in the big spider and soften up the enemy.
lol awhh i would love to play orcs and goblins but i hate spiders O_o..
I have another arachnophobia waaagghh!!! list:
Goblin Warboss+gigantic spider+armor of fortune+potion of str+sword of strife+luckstone+shield: 218 (2+ armor, 5+ ward, 6 atk S4, reroll one armor save, potion of str) great goblin shaman+lv 4+arachnarok+the other tricks+talisman of endurance: 515 (the enemy reroll ward save!!! vs arachnarok atk, 5+ ward)
Snagla Grobspit: 115 (great ambush) 4*Goblin big boss+gigantic spider+spear+short bow+shield+light armor: 332 (one in each spider unit, Ld and atks)
6* 10 spider riders+bow+full command: 1020 (core units, a lot of light cav)
6 spear chukas: 210 (a little help)
2*arachnarok: 580 (3 arachnarok in total!!!)
what do you think guys??? is not the best army but is a lot of funny army
Really enjoying all the lists you guys are making but I have one request. Can you please show us a complete list showing the total army. You don’t need to post point values or info that would upset GW but just write down 30 orcs with additional hand weapons, 30 black orcs etc. Keep the videos coming!
I really enjoy the BoW-Weeks, they’re just great. Keep up the good work!
To the list: As user “mkamui” mentioned in his list, you can put a Goblin Shaman on an Arachnarok as a lord choice. So you could (and should) put in three in your list!
Here is a list i made, its 2000P. It has 2 Units of Goblins, which would get some bits from the Spider Rider Sprues in order to let them look like Forest Goblins. I included them so that i would have a little bit more guys on the board. Then there are three chariots where i would swap the wolves for spiders. That would make everything a Forestgoblin / Spider Theme. Sorry that its in german, hope you will be able to read it. Thanks again for your great videos!

Perhaps you should remove the points cost, don’t think GW will appriciate it being written down like that…
I would, but i don’t know how to edit my post…
points total will be ok i assume but by model/unit may cause excitement
Really cool list, especially because I think the arachnarok model (bar its undersized base) is awesome, as have always been the spider riders. Excellent fluffy list guys
This is perfect… I have like 40 spider riders from the old battle for skull pass box set… loving the idea of increasing unit costs… keeps an army nice and varied… helps counter spamming… like 10 spear chukkas…
