Bingo - thx very much - Are these allowed in tourney play often?

Don't know if they are the same as in one WD though.

I've not heard of a tournament that disallowed them - though your local scene may be different.

ok am i ignorant, or am i reading that correctly and correctly inferring that a unit of riders can be taken in non ogre armies for two rares? please tell me i read that right cause if so i might convert some for my orcs and gobbos army

I can not imagine a GT would allow these. I could be wrong. I would check all the rules twice involving the fielding of these in what ever tourny you enter.

The rhinox riders rules that appeared in white dwarf are legal, but many tourney's don't allow rhinox riders AFAIK.

hey there - you can also go to the Gamesworkshop website, click on Ogres, related articles. They include their rules and background. They also have special army lists for them, including the giant rhinox!!
even better is you can bitz order the rhinox from the scrap launcher WITHOUT having to buy the scrap launcher.
Then take plastic bulls and mount them - but you'll have to green stuff the thighs (which is easy as ogre legs are simple, no detailed work req'd (and I ain't good with the greenstuff so if i say its easy, it's easy!).
hope it helps - and i don't know if they are tournament legal, sorry

I don't think the forgeworld rules are the same as those from the WD, but its been a while since I've looked at them.

Looking again at these FW rules, I see you can take AHW's on the Rhinox Riders. It makes no special exception in the rules, so would they recieve the +1 A?

Not according to the rule book but obviously the intent is that they do get the benefit.

I believe the Forgeworld rules are experimental. The rules published in White Dwarf can be found here:

Someone at my local has 3, and he has used them at the GT I believe

Tournament rules tend to specify which army lists can be taken. The current range of fifteen army books are implicit, but lists such as Dogs of War, Chaos Dwarves, or other additional units such as Rhinox Riders should be specified.

Rhinox Riders would not have been legal at the most recent UK Grand Tournament.

Local tournaments seem to allow them as a way of helping Ogres out. Not sure if they are using WD or Forgeworld rules however!
