    1v1 Tower/HH rush (Orc)

    I usually only do this on small maps, but use at free will.

    ° 3 peons to gold mine, 1 build orc burrow, and 1 build an altar.
    ° Train 3 peons at Great Hall [Your main building] and rally to gold mine.
    ° After 2 out of the 3 peons have been trained and sent to gold mine[5 peons on gold mine now] send the third peon to build a war mill and train 3 more peons as soon as you can.
    ° Send the peon that was building the altar to build a barracks and train a far seer, once far seer is out get spirit wolf and scout with wolves[or maphack].
    ° Send the peon that was building the orc burrow to build another orc burrow.
    ° After war mill is done send that peon to gather lumber, send the 2 peons that built the altar and the orc burrow to gather lumber.
    ° Train as many head hunters as you can, group your people up and go to your enemy's base.
    ° Rally 3 peons with you [from lumber, never gold] and train more peons to get a total of 6 peons on lumber.
    ° Charge into your enemy's base with your army and get your 3 peons to build towers right behind it.

    Usually your army will hold up long enough to get your towers up, but that depends on your microing. Have fun and good luck.

    If you're playing human you might want to shift out your burrows a little more to prevent those annoying early tower rushes, it works well. Get an early hero and you win basically since if they tower rush that early they'll waste all their supplies on the towers.

    You can't really tower rush humans, they just call all of their militia and fight it off.

    Not really, because humans will research defend if they see headhunters, that and on most maps the human creeps exceptionally faster than orc players with militia, that means they are running around with lvl 2 water tauren vs heavy army towers, wich isn't good.

    This strat can be used vs all races basically excluding UD, never tried that for myself. VS HU a FS with wolves/lightning can tear the footmen up usually with micro and the towers fire fast enough to help take em down all you have to do is keep the HH's alive and it should be able to give you a win...i seem to have luck vs HU with this at least

    Then again, with good micro footmen and militia can't really catch up with you considering they will be psychologically halted by the fact that you are building towers, making them turn back to attack your towers allowing you to have the chance to turn around and attack them and then micro some more.
