Well, as you get some Ancient Knowledge, you should probably grab Healing and a few other spells. Also, you should get Blacksmithing, since you can make the best 1H weapons in the game that way (crafted weapons are always 10 damage better than the same weapon in a store, and with less requirement to wield them).

Other than that, I'd get tireless runner (or some such thing), immunity to poison/disease, resistance to heat/cold and perhaps acrobatics as well. Generally I always grab those skills.

The rest is pretty much simple - put tons of points into strength and hitpoints (you need a large health pool). As for weapons, use 1H where it suits you (in the start, there are very few good 2H weapons available, forging a Bastard Sword is probably the best weapon you can get access to), but later in the game you should always use the Orc Halberd (massive 2H weapon, with incredible damage). Basically, the whole point of any "warrior" build is to get this halberd as soon as possible, because it can tear through packs of animals, orcs, whatever in seconds due to it's very high damage and range.

You might also want to consider getting the crossbow feats as you gain strength, since it's always nice to be able to shoot those nasty boars and what not from far away.

Also, do not underestimate the value of a good halberd early on (yes, I'm talking about the silly low damage ones that rebels use). It's a whole lot better at killing animals than any 1H weapon, simply due to the fact that you can keep them from stunlocking you because of the great range. I'd stick with 1H + shield against humanoids though (orcs/humans/skeletons, etc).

That should cover most of what you need to know.
