Here's the next chapter for our little Thematic Armies series. The Greenskins are probably one of the races that I know the least about, so please forgive my lack of lore knowledge.
1) Grimgor Ironhide
I gave Grimgor a very in-your-face, aggressive build. I was tempted to give him a spellcaster because I usually like to have a caster hero with a melee lord, but ultimately I decided on BOBB.

2) Azhag the Slaughterer
Azhag would absolutely get feral wyverns if you could only recruit them. Stone Trolls are in because he's up near Troll Country. Orc Big 'Uns have anti-large, so I gave him the regular Orc Boar Boyz since they're anti-infantry. Why two shamans? Well, none of the other hero options fit any better thematically, and he starts with one. At least they have different spells.

3) Wurrzag the Great Green Prophet
Before the Greenskin update, I had Giants in Wurrzag's army, but now Rouge Idols seem more appropriate. We're missing a savage orc melee hero so the goblin hero is filling in.

If we ever get Colossal Squigs, then I would swap them for the Arachnaroks and give the big spiders to a (hopefully) forest goblin-themed LL.

5) Grom the Paunch
I'm currently very early in a Grom campagin, but I'm suspecting that some of his goblin bonuses do not benefit Nasty Skulkers, which would discourage me from using them as his primary infantry.

It's tempting to put Black Orcs into every army because they're fantastic, but I guarantee that you'll have more fun if you stay thematic!
As always, I'd love to hear input and thoughts on this topic. WE are next!
