Hi , I have a few questions on putting together my Iron Guts.

I originally have 17 of them with 1 Bruiser deployed at 6 wide 3 deep
with Dragon Hide Banner.

Is that over kill? how well would they do with 3 units of 6?

I personally like units of 8 or 12 for the Ogre core. A horde of Ironguts is good but its very expensive.

I run 17 as well with the dragonhide banner And the bsb with the runemaw. It's a very tough nut to crack and makes the most of your buff spells and both banners

remember that the runemaw also effects your own spells so its pretty useless to throw buff spells at them exept if it is aoe spells

Even then it is useless. Rune Maw now makes it so that any spell that "Targets" the unit bounces or has no effect if there is not a suitable alternate target in range of the spell, providing you don't roll a 1 when checking the Rune Maw effect.

Greenspeed is WASTING his buff spells if he runs a Horde with the Runemaw.
