Orcish Mooks

There are lots of new 4e previews on the Wizards site at the moment including the full Orc entry from the new Monster Manual, complete with various different versions of everyone's favourite humanoid opponents. I thought these Orc Warrior stats were interesting:

Orc Warrior Level 9 Minion

Medium natural humanoid
XP 100
Initiative +3 Senses Perception +3; low-light vision
HP 1; a missed attack never damages a minion.
AC 21; Fortitude 19, Reflex 16, Will 16
Speed 6 (8 while charging)
Battleaxe (standard; at-will) ✦ Weapon +14 vs. AC; 6 damage.
Alignment Chaotic evil Languages Common, Giant
Str 17 (+6) Dex 11 (+3) Wis 10 (+3)
Con 15 (+5) Int 8 (+2) Cha 9 (+2)
Equipment leather armor, light shield, battleaxe

Orc Warrior Tactics
The orc warrior charges into battle, cutting down its enemies with its battleaxe.

This guy, has only 1 hp but a decent +14 attack bonus -- a bit like Cannon Fodder in Skull & Bones. Note the standard 6 points of damage if he hits too.

What do you think?

Re: Not liking where this is going (gone, I should say)...
Well, firstly, they're AC 21 and magic missile isn't the spell it once was:

Magic Missile
Wizard Attack 1
You launch a silvery bolt of force at an enemy.
At-Will ✦ Arcane, Force, Implement
Standard Action Ranged 20
Target: One creature
Attack: Int vs. Reflex
Hit: 2d4 + Int force damage.
Special: This power counts as a ranged basic attack. When a
power allows you to make a ranged basic attack, you can
use this power.

Secondly, we haven't seen an xp table so 100xp might not be very much for a 9th level character.

If you want to stay ahead of the game and min/max your 4e character, you'd better get swotting right away!
