Has anyone used Orge mercenary's in a Dwarf army ?

The Orge models are cool and I fancy a change from painting stunties

I'm building a aggresive based dwarf army , has anyone tried adding Orges to this for a faster punchier element ?

I would be thinking maneaters or ironguts ?

your thoughts and ranting appreciated

I have Ogres, and they provide a function similar to either heavy cavalry or a chariot. Dwarves don't need them for either fire power nor combat power, but it gives them a manoeuvre element that doesn't look too out of place, considering the deliberate lack of mounted units in a Dwarven list.

Generally the best choice is Ironguts - you don't really need the staying power of Maneaters in the Dwarf army, they're loads cheaper, can flee (something they will probably need to do often) and are one rare choice as opposed to using two. Bulls in general are just crappy, and as for leadbelchers - let's just say Dwarfs can handle the gunfire.

My two armies hat take Ogres most frequently are Dwarfs and Vampire Counts.

Dwarfs can really use the speed and heavy hitting that Ogres provide, and the rare choices in the Dwarf list are not must-haves anyway. Maneaters are a good choice for me. The fact they take up two rare slots does not matter in the Dwarf list.

My Vampires always take one or two small units of leadbelchers. Having shooting, the ability to flee, and somthing that can flank and not take wounds from combat resolution is fantastic. Again, the rare choices in the Vampire list make Ogres an attractive option.

I would go with Ironguts, and then use warriors with HW/S. The Warriors can take the charge from anything on the chin, and most likely aren't going anywhere. Then, the Ironguts counter-charge in the flank, with Gut Charges and multiple S6 Great Weapon attacks equally death for the unfortunate victim.

I have used them together. The Dwarven Anvil troops mixed with Ogres as a fast moving Hammer works very well.

And here I was expecting an OK army with DoW Dwarves. Actually, that could be rather interesting to see...

Dwarves are selective who they work for.

Not when there's Beer and Gold involved:p
