Oh and you realise thrug wont have a look out sir save in the units of trolls. A cannon will make a mess of him.

I imagine he goes in the 5 ogres for Look out Sir. Seeing as they are geared for defence and there is 5 of them.

It may be worth considering taking OK DoW ogres; they don't have as good a save, but with a look out gnoblar you only need 3 models for look out sir.

That makes sense but 6 monsters is an odd unit size. Plus shouldnt he be in trolls :P

Oh and not to be pedantic but its hardly impossible to kill a ogre before hitting thrugg with a cannon now is it?

That's why you have Throgg in an army led by Kholek Suneater:

Kholek
605 points

Throgg
175 points

4 trolls
180pts

4 trolls
180pts

4 trolls
180pts

6 Dragon Ogres
390pts

Giant
225pts

Total
1935pts

Add marks for the giant/equipment for the dragon ogres to take up the remaining points. The best part is that Trolls actually can't get worse by rolling on the EoG table since there's no such thing as "really, really stupid,I mean you wouldn't believe", nor having to test twice either.
(it's a stupid army, but someone's gotta do it...)

no matter how exciting it sounds, the idea of playing only 20 or so models in 2000 pts game just make me feel very uncomfortable :(

Ogre kingdoms?

My planned 1K Throgg list:

Throg - 175

3 Trolls - 135

3 Trolls - 135

3 Trolls - 135

3 Trolls - 135

Scyla - 105
820 total

5 Marauder Horsemen - 86
-Musician
-Throwing Axes
-Flails

5 Marauder Horsemen - 91
-Musician
-Throwing Spears
-Flails

997 total

The unbreakable Scyla holds up S3 infantry blocks that I want out of the picture for a while, the horsemen marchblock and plink off ranks, while having the hitting power to take out other common screens on the charge. Throgg and the trolls form the main battle line, using their M6 to get to grips with the enemy, and their resilience to survive the shooting they are sure to endure. The bsb effect from Throgg helps keep them in the fight against ranked units, and causing fear prevents them from being autobroken by undead. You could make one big troll unit and a couple small ones so Throgg has a safe place to hide from cannons, but he has regen anyway so he will probably make it into combat.

For larger games, just bring in Kholek and some dragon ogres. Throgg and his trolls work perfectly with Kholek and his kin, and these choices keep the army very mobile and hard-hitting while being able to shrug off most missile fire (trolls love repeater crossbows to death, let me tell you).
