View Full Version : 1k Ogres for 1st tournament

04-07-2008, 12:54
Hello there

I've started a new army in Ogre Kingdoms and have my first tournament coming up in a couple of weeks. It's a 1k tournament and so far, the only other armies I know of at the moment are Wood Elves and Dwarves.

At the moment I have the batallion box, a box of ogres and the bruiser and butcher models and don't really have the option to get more (I can probably put together an extra 3-5 bulls and 16 odd gnoblars with the parts I have), so the list looks like this:

Great Weapon
Heavy Armour

Dispel Scroll

4 x Ironguts

3 x Bulls

3 X Bulls

3 X Bulls

2 x Leadbelchers

8 x Gnoblar Trappers

999 points

Any opinions would be gratefully received!

Also a couple of questions:

Is it worth taking the Dispel Scroll or would adding a Bellower to the Bulls units be a better move?

Are the Trappers worth it at all at this amount or are the points better spent elsewhere?

Many thanks for your help!

gnoblar trappers are great for marchblocking ect. but imo you should take larger units of bulls

At 1k the dispel scroll may be unnecessary (you get 3 dispel dice). A determined magic opponent will only have 3 level 2 casters at most (which would eat up an insane amount of points).

The musicians for your bulls are handy in rallying from a feigned flee but in such a small army even that may not be overly relevant.

Army looks really good, though 4 IronGuts is a bit much, but since this is what you have built I say stick with it (I prefer a lot more Iron Guts than Bulls, but in terms of #'s of units, not models in a unit which I almost always keep at 3 per unit w/ a Bellower).

I don't use trappers, but they are pretty handy and can really throw an opponent for a loop, especially if you know how to set it up so they flee just right and use the skirmisher rules to throw a unit way off track facing/movement wise. I suggest you read the 7th Edition Rulebook FAQ on how fleeing skirmishers work, if you don't know how it works already.

I would take Longstrider and/or the Weirdstone Necklace on your Bruiser, but it's not 100% necessary (take the wierdstone first if you have to make a choice).
