TsukeFox, what kind of closeups would you recommend? Zoom in on the combats, more intro pics, deployment closeups?

Nor should they... it's just filthy. I'll be packing two of those boys away after the tournament. After declaring the 3rd and 4th cannon shot per round, I always felt dirty. Then again, that didn't stop the brets from taking 4 trebs and making it rain rocks.

That is exactly what I am hoping; it is tricky for an opponent to know what to expect with the ogres. I can tell you the high elf player for sure wouldn't have brought out the dragon if he had known ogres had cannons.

Close ups of battle- your intro shows your models but we never get to see your opponents models up close.

Melee pics would help in showing both armies.

I try to such picture shoots in Djekars Reports

Man what was that tomb king player thinking when he left the hierophant all alone with no buffers or support-? Sad showing

OgreWargaming
19-10-2011, 03:35
You would think that he would deploy more safely given that he knew I had so many extra drops.

I"ll see about more "action" shots :)

I liked the reports a lot until I got to the pre-tourney game and all the proxies.

Although there were a lot of unpainted minis before that, many were painted and a continuous progress could be seen, so I was ok with that. And the gameplay was interesting, I felt that victories depended on deploy, manouvre and decisions, which I liked a lot. But than the huge amount of proxied stuff was quite off putting.

Demanding to actually have minis (preferentially painted..) for the units in the lists would go a long way to curb the "filthy" lists and keep things more in the spirit of the game, as people would have a hard time keeping their collections always on the "optimized" range of models.

I appreciate the work on the BRs and would like to keep watching them, but would rather have smaller games with fully painted armies than ever bigger games (why is 3k becoming so popular now?:eyebrows:) of primers or even proxies.

Cheers

OgreWargaming
24-10-2011, 04:30
Well, good news then Tupinamba; The 2400 pt season will be starting soon, which should make the armies more painted and balanced but still leave some of the new toys.

I think that the problem was not so much the points leading to the filth, but more the grand armies rule at 3000 points. I have been thinking in general that when doing higher points, to keep the same unit limits.

Tupinamba
24-10-2011, 20:59
Look forward to the next season then!

And I agree with the grand battle issue. In general, I actually agree with Matt Wardīs interview and the suggestion to keep games at 2000 points. People cry that than itīs not possible to have all the options, but imo thatīs exactly the point.;) Smaller games would change the General + lv. 4 + BSB standart of ALL games with ALL lists. This problem is of course accentuated at 3000.

Still, the proxy question would also be a way of dealing with it, and I particularly dislike proxies (Iīm not saying anything against alternative mini, stuff that is in theme etc.), as it ruins the visual aspect of the games, and this is a miniatures game, after all.

Anyway, kudos for providing us with interesting videos and battles.

Cheers

Seems like chaos should have used there warhounds to set up counter charges instead of trying to get into combat even if it means taking a charge-an awful super charge

Second that.

By the way, your miniatures are getting better every report. The stone horn and the firebelly are very beautiful. Kudos

Also, as posted above, I love having batreps playing in the background while I finish painting my Tomb Kings. :)

I really really thought the WoC player was going to wreck you. But then he removed the Warshrine... lol Excellent report. I know it was probably a let down not getting your big guys in, but him being so afraid of them I think did enough. :)

I am just so glad our WoC doesn't use Gateway or Puppet. :)

OgreWargaming
08-11-2011, 00:26
@Feefait It was a bit of a letdown but they got their chance in the 1k battle ;)

Thanks for all the nice comments, been basing and painting with the wife (who did the firebelly).

Brets coming up this weekend. I'll see if I can sneak another game in.

Havn't watched all videos, but you army is turning out nicely. This picture-video-comment battle report style is awesome! Your opponents, however, seem to keep making stupid mistakes :P

Coolio almost a fully painted army-
Never scene a chosen star disappear so quickly

brother_maynard
13-11-2011, 20:27
awesome report vs the warriors! i love seeing ogres in action, and boy was it good to see those chosen get stomped into paste lol. just a couple of minor notes-

1. on the ironblaster shot into the warriors, cannonballs never hit more than one model per rank, so only 3 warriors from that unit would have been hit rather than 5.

2. the other trickster's shard would cease to work while the slaughtermaster was transformed, this is explicitly stated in the spell's rules. the FAQ that you referenced clarifies that while items and equipment stop working, special rules do not.

neither made a big difference so no harm done but just figured it was good to know. awesome games, can't wait for more!

TheDrugLordX

Haha nice, it's more fun if it isn't so easy :P

Continuing on brother_maynard's post, what might have had a impact on that last fight was how you overran (wrongly). Overrunning into a unit counts as a charge, so you have to maximize your frontage and you're not allowed to reform during the charge - hence you may not switch over your chimeara to the other side of your irongut unit. Since the chimaera does NOT have the same foot print as the ironguts (ironguts are 40mm x 40mm while chimeara I believe is minimum monster base, ie 50mm x 50mm) you're not allowed to "make way" into the irongut unit. He's simply stuck there on the end and so wouldn't get to attack.

Probably wouldn't matter much anyway since you pretty much crushed him, but good to know for future games ;)

Nice report as always.

TsukeFox
14-11-2011, 00:41
Once a mage transforms is it no longer considered a character-? Are not characters always allowed to make way if they are not in combat-?

brother_maynard
14-11-2011, 01:08
You're right that he's a character tsuke but no, characters are not always allowed to make way, they must have a compatible footprint to do so. Good catch Druglord

Saw the report against the Dark Elves, and I have to say that I was disappointed with what I saw there. Your little trick when you charged the sorceress with the gnoblars so your ironguts could make their charge against the warriors was both bad mannered if the charge distance was too far and you moved them wrong. First off, looking at it your gnoblars. They were stood at an angle not even facing the sorceress after the charge move was made. They just seem to have moved towards some invisible object just to clear the way for your ironguts. How this is really done, is that you pivot towards the desire target and move them there after. You may only wheel once after the initial pivot to clear any obstacle, however, if the charge is too short, you just move straight up towards the intended target, alas the ironguts would have been blocked. Secondly, did you even measure the distance to make sure that the charge was even possible? If not, the result of the game would have been a massacre for the dark elves since you would be disqualified.
Be grateful that your opponent didn't smack you in the head with the rule book, I hear they can deal some massive blunt damage :o

OgreWargaming
14-11-2011, 05:59
@brother_maynard For part 1, the ironblaster was in the flank of both units, and so each unit's files counted as ranks per pg 113 BRB.
Part 2, we ended up 4+ing the rule interpretation since we didn't have access to the faq. However, reading the language again, I agree that all his magic items would cease to function.

@TheDrugLordX BRB pg 100 and I completely agree with you. I think in this case, either the mountain chimera pops tight to the north of the unit or the south of the unit, either case he is not in base contact with the nurgle chaos warriors. However, if he pops to the north, then the overrun into the chosen (supposing the nurgle warriors break from combat) would have functioned effectively the same. I think there is a good chance the nurgle warriors break from combat; After all his attacks and before the bruiser, ironguts, and stomps (and no chimera), he was down by 2 after impacts, flank, rank, and charge.

@jloop My opponent and I were very slowly and closely watching that maneuver and I am certain that we played it by the book. The gnoblars moved exactly as if they were going to complete the charge and they were certainly within their 16in charge range. I agree that they look a little "askew" in the pic as the outer-leftmost gnoblar should have been on a collision course for the center of the sorceress's base. I'd guess that this was due to the movement tray being rotated accidentally underneath the ironguts tray as they ran by (but really who knows). I am disappointed that you would rush to accuse me of cheating and offended by "Secondly, did you even measure the distance to make sure that the charge was even possible?". I am happy to discuss rules errors and poor strategy, but I expect you to give me and the other players the benefit of the doubt that every move was made in good faith and agreed upon by both players.

@brother_maynard For part 1, the ironblaster was in the flank of both units, and so each unit's files counted as ranks per pg 113 BRB.

indeed, for some reason it escaped me that the shot was coming from the flank. as someone who does their own video battle reports, i find it extremely annoying when someone corrects me and are themselves wrong, so i apologize for doing this to you. anyway like i said, great game, subscribed and waiting for more!

I'm a bit relieved that the tournament is done and I can set that list aside... for good.
The last 3 lists have been interesting. Twice with lore of Heavens and once with two units of maneaters :)

Mid'ean
08-12-2011, 12:41
Hey M8. Just a comment on the game vs the Bretts. When the gnoblers broke on the hill they would not have caused the IB to panic. Gnoblers don't cause any panic by being destroyed, breaking or fleeing through friendly units. But other than that really enjoyed the report and watching it go back and forth. Live by the sickle-die by the sickle.....:chrome:

Curse me for forgetting Beneath Contempt! Boy would those 170 points helped, not even to mention the rounds of shooting. Plus, since the other sabretusk only fled because of the gnoblars fleeing through, he could have stuck around and run interference on the left flank. Gah!
+1 for you Mid`ean.

Nice reports, as always.

Just to comment the battle versus the Helves; the banner automatically dies when you break from combat, so your irongut death-star would be dead ;) Probably wouldn't have given him the victory, but instead turned it into a draw?

Slyphor
30-12-2011, 02:41
Hey Man,

I just want to say thanks for all the good double-Warhammer time I've had painting my ironguts while watching your bat reps. I'm really looking forward to seeing more 2.4K matches, since that's where I tend to land, and fewer IBs, since I'm not buying 3 more in order to emulate your strategy!

Lots of fun - looking forward to seeing what's next!

Sly

OgreWargaming
03-01-2012, 03:55
TheDrugLordX - The standard bearer survived with 1 wound (and never broke from combat) amazingly. He just duked it out with the spearelves for two more rounds.

Thanks sly. Don't worry, there will be plenty of 2400 and <= 2 IBs ;)

Poor guy deployed too close-
Your opponents seem to underestimate how deadly & quick your ogre units can be if not redirected or blown up by magic/artillery

OgreWargaming
14-01-2012, 20:57
@TsukeFox I completely agree. I tend to accentuate the speed with banner of swiftness, and fangs/tusks/stonehorns.
I see a fair number of great eagles, warhounds, peg knights, and now mounted yeomen - but not enough I think. But redirectors have been gaining popularity in the local meta, so hopefully we'll have new challenges in the movement phase.
Artillery and magic (specifically dwellers) does just fine however ;)

In other news, non-warmachine bret game loaded.

TsukeFox

You should model on "dead bodies" onto the bases of the mournfang-they are on a killing spree-!!

So I have yet to see you battle Skaven or New Vamps. (I do not recall an O&G game, but not sure.)

Further no gorgers Or Yhettes have made it in your list yet either.

Nor dwarves, wood elves, daemons, or beastmen. Good news is that I've tapped into another gaming group, so should be seeing some new armies coming up.
I suppose I could fluff up the lists even more (it's not like they are particularly nasty) with some yhetees and gorgers. I've got two interesting lists with yhetees and had a notion for those gorgers... hrm...

Sarael

Virtue of Heroism is NOT HKB. It's against Large Targets and with a non-magic weapon. It has no effect against Ogres (unless it's been errata'd). It has no effect with the heartwood lance...

Walls
20-02-2012, 00:56
Yes, it IS HKB. Check errata first.

Sarael
20-02-2012, 01:16
The multiple charge phase late game was hillarious :P

Sarael
20-02-2012, 01:20
What errata? If it's on the website (which it should be...) then it's not in the Brett Articles section, where it should be... So, where is it? Also, does the errata remove the restriction against magic weapons as well?

Walls
20-02-2012, 01:45

In the day and age of Ogres ruling the roost, this is so awesome.

OgreWargaming

I wish more units had HKB, it always makes those battles more strategic.

Uploaded the empire getting lost in the mountains.

Daemons on deck. And after that a game with gorgers, yhettes, a scraplauncher, and a giant!

TsukeFox
27-02-2012, 11:01
Poor humans. Unless it was a tourny really should have let the guy refoll his miscast cause that battle really did become a non event- you got off like all your buffs it seems every magic phase save for 1 turn.
Sad that without flesh to stone your army just kicked over his minatures like they were standing still.
Maybe the new book & better war priest will help out.

Gahh I squirt the musk of fear at the sight of 8 man eaters-!

OgreWargaming
28-02-2012, 00:21
I actually offered to ignore the miscast (considering that it was only on a couple dice for flesh to stone, not like he 6 diced dwellers). He said that he wanted to let it go and and run on as if he was in a tournament - I guess we can pretend that the same thing would have happened when I activated the hellheart.
I don't think my magic actually had much of an impact. The str buffs didnt really come into play since he was making so many armor saves anyway, and the toughness or regen hardly saved any wounds.

TsukeFox
28-02-2012, 00:50
Guess it is good practice for what if my "Mage blows up 1st turn-?"

Slaughter is what happens-maybe one cannon can be dropped for a lvl2 ?
The steam tank & 1 cannon should be enough.

OgreWargaming
11-03-2012, 08:07
Daemons loaded, intersting list I thought. So many strong single models, plus harpies and 2x flamers.

TsukeFox
11-03-2012, 10:29
Close-!
Yet it seems like the daemon player should have been more agressive with his plague unit once your fire belly used his breath weapon.

Special chars seem ok in friendly games but in tournaments?? Better hope no one dust off their Teclis model

Akkaryn
11-03-2012, 13:29
I'd have thought with Epi he'd have had a much more Nurgle centric list. IMO he's one of the best special characters in the game.

OgreWargaming
11-03-2012, 16:57
I liked his rules, really added a dimension to that unit (more interesting than the typical regen stuff). Minotaurs, skragg, epi - I like all the rules that persist and get stronger over time, forces a whole new strategy component.

Thanks for good battle reports! I watched twenty in a row while building my new ogres.

I recommend trying European Team Championship rules/restrictions (http://http://warhammer.org.uk/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=99850&sid=6db96f7a01787c61148d342778a9c45b) in some games. I think they make the game much fairer even though some people whine that they cannot field combos/units they don't see overpowered.

Or, you could just keep playing with the Warhammer rules which are fine. I look forward to seeing more videos, I think your battle reports are the best on Warseer.

Sorta- I would wait for the 3rd draft. It seems like a lot of the Team Captains were not satisfied.

I'm not really sold on ETC yet. So far I haven't run into enough armies that can't be battled in a fun game with a normal all comers type list with some tactics.

New video now with more vampires and skaven. And chaos dwarves in the pipeline...ooh.

Have you lost a battle?

Wooo team Skaven!!

Good luck with the chaos dwarves-going to be scary. Hopefully the player takes the high road and not take the Destroyer-who is such a crutch.

Chaos Dwarves obliterate Ogres on paper, so that'll be an interesting sight. Thanks again for the excellent reports!

I'd like to see more match ups against HE and DE, at 3k the elves should really be doing more with their magic and elites. I've seen OK getting demolished by HE with a mixture of clever movement, bows and of course magic (without Teclis). I am starting an Ogre army and I'd like to know more about what their weaknesses are against the various opponents. I really think DE and Skaven are the toughest when they're played well.

I'm liking the reports greatly and it's like a season finally of CSi...I can't wait til the next one ;)...(great painting too)

Thanks guys. Quick game against the Chaos Dwarves up. Felt more like a tactica.

Ya the Destroyer is such a crutch- once it goes down the rest of the army has nothing else to back itself with.
Chaos dwarf players gotta learn to build a balanced army and ignore the easy build.
I hope your opponent gets a rematch with a list that does not make his warriors into statue cheerleaders for the Destroyer.

Again, great reports, this is my favorite BR thread.

Have you had a chance to go up against the new Empire armybook yet?

Funny you should ask - I just played an 8000 point battle against the new empire :0 (with ogres).
If I have a few hours to spare I might put a batrep up

All these videos get me all fired up to do my own. We've been playing some different games lately too. Just did Storm of Magic. Tonight we're doing a NO MAGIC AT ALL game. Then I don't film it because I am lazy. Maybe I need to watch WHILE playing to keep motivation really high!

even at 8k greasus goldtooth is a questionable choice ;)

Aw come on that turn of making the Franz stupid was game changing.

He just doesn't work well with ogres - it is bizarre. He is M4, doesn't fit in the footprint, his auto rally ability is mostly wasted on ogres (though useful for sabretusks), as is his +1 combat res bonus since ogres are rarely drawing or losing combat by 1. Top it off with his 3 attacks, no impact hits, and I 1. Yes his few attacks are S10 and D3 wounds, and he can cause stupidity in D3 models each round, and has a 4+ ward save and ITP - but I don't think he is better than 2 kitted tyrants for the same points.

Alright, go back to work and post more battles. I've been working on my converting my Mammox all weekend long and your battles have been the perfect way to keep a brutish focus. I've never had so much fun cutting my fingers to pieces. So, if you would have another 26 posted by saturday, I'd be much obliged.... ;)

Congrats on the victory with the Overtyrant. In mega-large point games, we all usually grab the "king" of their race and blow stuff up. I got stomped against last edition Settra, somehow pulled off the win against Thorgrim and have stomped Karl twice (once in hth with Greasus!).

Yes, so back to the videos. I need that motivation!

Finally got a game in with the Wood elves. I have to say I really enjoyed facing them and think I'd like fielding them as well.

Hm- if you would have hunkered in your ironguts into the tower I think the wood elf player would have been hard pressed to get you out.

That was a great game to watch, and it sounded like you had a good time with it as well sir. I found your thoughts about what to do next time very well thought through as well.
