I know that we can't really know what the best builds will be in 8th ed until we have the final rules and get a chance to play with them a bit. Still, I was toying with my OK list to see if I could put together something so that I at least had a starting point for testing the list in 8th ed, and this is what I came up with:

LORDS (14%)

Tyrant (1#, 311 pts)
. . 1 Tyrant @ 311 pts (General; Ogre Club; Heavy Armour; Luck-Gnoblar x1; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 The Tenderiser
. . . . 1 Gut Maw
. . . . 1 Wyrdstone Necklace

HEROES (23%)

Butcher (1#, 155 pts)
. . 1 Butcher @ 155 pts (Hand Weapon; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 Dispel Scroll

Butcher (1#, 180 pts)
. . 1 Butcher @ 180 pts (Hand Weapon; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 Bangstick
. . . . 1 Dispel Scroll

Bruiser (1#, 189 pts)
. . 1 Bruiser (Battle Standard Bearer) @ 189 pts (Ogre Club; Heavy Armour; Battle Standard Bearer; Lookout Gnoblar x1; Luck-Gnoblar x1; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 Bull Standard

CORE (42%)

Ironguts (5#, 250 pts) <- Battle Standard Bearer in this unit. Sized to take advantage of new Rank and Impact rules for Monstrous Infantry.
. . 5 Ironguts @ 250 pts (Bellower Mus; Great Weapon; Heavy Armour; Causes Fear)

Ironguts (5#, 275 pts) <- Tyrant in this unit. Sized to take advantage of new Rank and Impact rules for Monstrous Infantry.
. . 5 Ironguts @ 275 pts (Bellower Mus; Standard Bearer Std; Lookout Gnoblar x1; Great Weapon; Heavy Armour; Causes Fear)

Bulls (3#, 156 pts)
. . 2 Bulls @ 156 pts (Bellower Mus; Ogre Club; Extra Hand Weapon; Light Armour; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 Crusher (Ogre Club; Extra Hand Weapon; Light Armour)

Bulls (3#, 156 pts)
. . 2 Bulls @ 156 pts (Bellower Mus; Ogre Club; Extra Hand Weapon; Light Armour; Causes Fear)
. . . . 1 Crusher (Ogre Club; Extra Hand Weapon; Light Armour)

Gnoblar Fighters (27#, 56 pts) <- Sized to take advantage of new Horde rules.
. . 26 Gnoblar Fighters @ 56 pts (Hand Weapon; Sharp Stuff)
. . . . 1 Groinbiter (Hand Weapon; Sharp Stuff)

Gnoblar Fighters (27#, 56 pts) <- Sized to take advantage of new Horde rules.
. . 26 Gnoblar Fighters @ 56 pts (Hand Weapon; Sharp Stuff)
. . . . 1 Groinbiter (Hand Weapon; Sharp Stuff)


SPECIAL (17%)

Leadbelchers (2#, 110 pts)
. . 2 Leadbelchers @ 110 pts (Leadbelcher Cannon; Light Armour; Causes Fear)

Leadbelchers (2#, 110 pts)
. . 2 Leadbelchers @ 110 pts (Leadbelcher Cannon; Light Armour; Causes Fear)

Scraplauncher (7#, 165 pts) <- To take advantage of new Warmachine rules.
. . 1 Gnoblar Scraplauncher @ 165 pts (Causes Fear; Chariot; Stone Thrower)
. . . . 6 Gnoblar Scrappers (Hand Weapon)
. . . . 1 Rhinox

RARE (3%)

Gorger (1#, 75 pts)
. . 1 Gorger @ 75 pts (Causes Fear; Killing Blow; Unbreakable)

So, all percentages easily meet limits (I didn't really have to make any major changes there). Tweaked some of the units to take advantage of the changes that seem relevent to the OK. Any comments or suggestions? Any ideas of other 8th ed changes I could take advantage of with my Ogres? :confused:

Thanks!

I also approve - nice overall balance - except for one thing... What`s with the Crushers in your Bull Units? Is there some new 8th Ed rule that makes them better? If not - I always thouht they were waaaayyyyy over-priced for an extra attack. Surely those points could be better spent (on more Bulls or a better banner or on Bellowers).

Okay, I must have missed that rumor. Its a simple fix to swap it out for some other 25 pt magic item.

Yeah, I don't normally use Crushers anymore but I just kind of threw them into this list. Of course dropping both of them does not free up quite enough points for even one more Bull and I already have Bellowers in every Ogre unit except the Leadbelchers, so I need to consider what I might spend those extra 40 points on.

Thanks for the comments! :D

Like the direction it's going. Have you thought about a slaughtermaster? A naked tyrant and slaughtermaster is 400 base allowing u whatever left in ur 25% to equip the both. Seems to me from the rumours shaping up one strong wizard is better than multiple weak ones both offensvely and defensively. I think this is one of the really good changes for OK as now there is the option of finally using a slaughtermaster in regular point games.
