In my opinion the bulls units look a little thin but maybe a bit of insight into your tactics will explain this

I think you have 6 mediocre units, many an enemy army will have 1 very tough unit, which of yours is capable of taking it down?

Though I suppose with the number of units you have a combo charge might work.

The 6 strong bull units are ok if they lose 0 on the way in, fairly poor if even 1 dies to shooting as you can assume some will die before they strike with their slow init.

I would combine the bull units, maybe drop a few for a few more guts.

dropping 1 bull would buy you 2 magic banners.

Say flaming banner and swiftness. Worth it imo.

You don't have a BSB, I would say they are pretty much mandatory for Ogres in 2k.

2 arcane items on the slaughtermaster are a no go.

I wouldnt say 6 mediocre units. 3 i can accept, my core units
Units of 2 mournfangs hit like a done of bricks and sniping maneaters are pretty solid in my opinion

Banner idea is a good idea, that is official pinched

Funny this, when i was reading around people kept saying its border optional in 2k and a compulsory in 2400pts. Now my list is out they say its needed and i would like one but i dont know where to trim the points whatr do you suggest?

My bad, havent written a list in a long time

If you swap the two 6-man Bull units for one slightly bigger one, you should be able to afford a BSB.

Yep if you field a 9 man ogre unit you can then field a BSB that can sit in the second rank!

Should that be bulls or ironguts?

The Bulls would be better as they get a +5/++6 parry attack, makes it a much more survivable unit imo.

Cheers,
