View Full Version : What to do 1500 point Ogres

What should I be getting?! I figure two batallion boxes and a slaughtermaster/butcher.

Two batallions will give me 12 ogres, 12 ironguts, 8 leadbelchers. I can probably kitbash one of the ironguts into a battlestandard bearer.

What would you equip the normal ogres with? Additional handweapons seem to be a cheap option and well ironfists are nice but a 5+ save is generally not seen as a worthy option...

So I was thinking a 1500 list that would have:
A level 3 (edit) Slaughtermaster
A bruiser BSB

A bunch of ogres with additional handweapon and full command
A bunch of ironguts with full command, look out gnoblar

A unit of about 6 leadbelchers.

What you guys think, would this be a feasible 1500 point army that is decent while being pretty cost effective?

Ironfists are great, it's the 5+/6++ that really makes them worthwhile.

You can't take a lvl 3 Butcher, you would need a Slaughtermaster.
But stick him in the Ironguts with the Banner of discipline to give you the LD bump.

Other than yet yeah it's a perfectly feasible army, see if you can find some models for Sabretusks as they are gold.

you could also exchange the Leadbelchers för Maneaters (they are much better and you can easily convert some of the remaing ogres into them):

4 Maneaters, 4 x Brace of Ogre Pistols, Scouts, Stubborn, Standardbearer
+ Gleaming Pennant

That is an interesting list! I was thinking along these lines

Level 3 Slaughtermaster
talisman of endurance,
ironcurse icon

Bruiser BSB
armour of fortune
biting blade
iron fist

8 Ogres, ironfists and full command

8 Ironguts, full command, lookout gnoblar
standard of discipline

6 leadbelchers with musician

1 sabretusk
1 sabretusk

Your list seems to be 'arder though.

It is good at Smashing Face.
