Haha in all seriousness they all have there benefits; Durburz has the extended stand fast range meaning if you're broken (and he passes his courage test) a lot less of your guys will be fleeing. Druzhag helps beasts, a lot, so he has good synergy with them. Groblog makes fury amazing! He helps make your Goblins a lot more resilient. and Ashrak helps bump spiders and is a shaman (always handy ).

The best? I couldn't really call it. They all bring different things to the army but most useful from a glance is Groblog The best hero though is the Goblin captain, 35 points for 2 might points! Bargain!

He is an orc but he is pretty amazing in the right situations. He has a rule which allows him to call heroic actions for free if an enemy hero within 6 inches calls one (it has to be the same action though) but free heroic moves/fights are just mighty fine!

What is fury? I haven't got the sourcebook for the green critters yet Just a mounth and a half left though

The way I see it is that:

Durburz can help your goblins once they are broken but groblog (from what I have just heard) can stop them from getting killed in the first place ; Druzhag is usefull if you have a beastly based army but ashrak is usefull if you have a spider based army and finally, dragons are too expensive for a swarmish army

One more question, can Druzhag help dragons, watcher ect...?

Any comments on my view of things?

If you have the rulebook it is in there under magical powers

No he can't. Fury only helps the same types of models as the shaman casting it (in this case Goblins)

Yeah, I suppose he is seeing as he is the last one left.

Deathstreak Druzhag has a special kind of fury that does not affect goblins but affects wargs and spiders (I think)

Goblins are useful, but remember;

"Quantity over Quality, as Quantity has a Quality all of its own."

Goblins must use this too their advantage, Durbaz allows the cowardly nature of the Goblins to be slightly boosted and is a OK fighter, especially when accompanied by Shamans and such.

This. But only goblins can use this rule of thumb, all other armies can't pull it off.

Basic Orcs, but you have to be careful with gear and such, and if you want a 'cheap' troop army, just go with 'dem Gobbo's.
