if i want to put skrag in a unit of ogres and i want them to have 3 ranks of 4 ogres how many would need to be with him.

also if skrag's unit charges, will he get any bonus strength on inpact hits even though there are no ogres behin him but the unit has ranks

Skrag would gain the strength bonus of the unit's rank bonus. That much is simple enough.

Given that his footprint doesn't fit with the Ogres, you'd need 12 Ogres.

really i thought 10 orges would be the max i would need when i put skrag in the middle of the unit

Skrag can't go in the 'middle' of a unit; his base is 50mm x 100mm and doesn't fit the 40mm grid of a unit of regular Ogres so he has to stick to an outside edge, per BRB p.98, particularly the section headed "when footprints collide."

I'm assuming he's on a 50x100mm chariot base, so he wouldn't be placed in the middle of the unit. If the model comes on a 40x80mm base (I don't think GW produce one) then you'd be right: he could be placed in the middle of a unit of 10 for the rank bonus you want.

oh ok, thanks for the info.

if i put skrag on the side will his base length count for the ranks at all

No, you would need 12 ogres in 3 ranks of 4 and then Scragg sits to the side of the unit and is not part of the ranks due to not matching the base size so no ogres can go behind him.
