Hi all. I'm going to be starting an Ogre army in August when I've finished painting my WoC tournament list and the tournament is over. I've got the book but no models yet and drafted up this list. I'm going for a friendly but still competitive list for gaming with my friends. I'd like to know what people think of this list as I'll be making my first purchases based off of it.

Slaughtermaster - Lore of Great Maw, Level 4, Fencer's Blades, Glittering Scales, Greedy Fist
5 Bulls - Full Command, Lookout Gnoblar, Ironfist

Butcher - Lore of Heavens, Level 2, Dispel Scroll, Ironcurse Icon, Gold Sigil Sword
5 Bulls - Full Command, Lookout Gnoblar, Ironfist

Bruiser - BSB, Deathcheater, Sword of Anti-heroes, Heavy Armour, Ironfist, Lookout Gnoblar.
7 Ironguts - Full Command, Lookout Gnoblar, Dragonhide Banner.

15 Gnoblar Trappers - Musician

15 Gnoblar Trappers - Musician

4 Maneaters - Stubborn & Scout, 2 w/ Great Weapons, 2 w/ Additionals, Heavy Armour, Full Command, Banner of Discipline

Comes in at exactly 2500 points.

Hey pointy,

Interesting list, vastly different from the internet wisdom I see continuously echoed here. Do you have a specific synergy in mind for the army?

A couple of personal-preference ogre suggestions.
:cool:2 units of maneaters might be overkill. Those boys are expensive.
:cool:For low-level support butchers, I like the level 1 beast butcher. The sig spell of that lore is great.
:cool:I like BIG units of bulls.
:cool:The stonehorn has horrible leadership. If you want to use him stick a hunter on him or keep him near your general.

My 2500 pt list is:

Slaughter master lev4, death lore, stubborn crown, and whatever else
butcher level 1 gut
BSB, some cheap armor
16 bulls with iron fist
7 IG
4 MF cav
5 maneaters
2x saber kitties

Its competitive, but not OTT.
