Few tips for people whole are struggling against Orc Warriors.

1. Nimble
If character starts with melee def 0, = 0
Every level up put points in melee def, = 20
Holdout + inspiring presence, = 10
=30 and with nimble, = 60

With Heater shield
Character starts with melee def 0, = 0
Every level up put points in melee def, = 20
Heater shield + Shield Expert, = 25
Holdout + inspiring presence, = 10
=55 and with shieldwall +25, = 80

Problems starts with shield when orc breaks them with 2 hits.
Melee def without shield and without nimble will be 20+10=30, with 30 melee defense your brothers start dying.
If brother has nimble and his shield breaks, he will still have 60 melee defense, which is not that bad at all.

2. Indomitable
4 AP, 40 Fatigue, every other turn. Immunity to stun and knock back plus -50% dmg received for 2 turns. This skill is crucial as it prevents orc warriors to push brothers around. With indomitable you can tie down orc warriors while brothers with perfect focus do the damage with billhooks.

Melee defense is the most important stat in the game right now, put points in it every level up. Orcs hit so hard, it is better
to avoid to get hit than try to soak up damage. So it is generally good to get both shield expert and nimble for your brothers.
Try to find brothers with base melee defense around 10, with nimble that is 80 melee defense. Try to find few drunk sword masters,
go killing frenzy and nimble. These guys are broken.
