View Full Version : 2400 Ogre Kingdoms for a tournament first try

28-01-2013, 12:44
I've got a tournament coming up soon, and I want to nail down my list so that I can start practicing. This is my first tournament list with this army, so tell me what you think.

LVL. 4 Slaughtermaster (Lore of the Great Maw)
- Fencer's Blades, Glittering Scales, The other trickster's shard

LVL. 2 Butcher (Beasts)
-Ironfist, Dispell scroll

Bruise BSB
-Rune Maw, Ironfist, Heavy Armour, Giantkiller big name

13 Ironguts w/ Full Command, Look Out Gnoblar, Standard of Discipline

4 Mournfang Calvary w/ Standard, Musician, Banner of Eternal Flame, Ironfists

5 Maneaters w/ musician, standard bearer, 5x brace of ogre pistols (sniper, poison)

2x Sabretusks




So I have a few points to play with. I'm concerned about having all of my characters in one unit, so I had thought about dropping the Ironguts down to 10 and getting a small unit of bulls to escort the butcher around, or just dropping the butcher entirely. Thoughts?

Looks like a pretty solid Ogre list to me. Personally I would take lore of beast on the Lv 4 rather than the lv 2, but that's just preference. I'd also replace your scroll with hellheart as well. I play a few ogre players regularly and they don't run into to many problems with 2-3 characters in a single unit so you should be ok.

If your worried about the butcher, stick him in maneaters.

Agree on beasts on the 4/maw on lvl 2. If you roll a 1,2,4,5 on Maw you get a decent spell. On beasts it's only the sig or 3,4,5 that are decent ( assuming TfoK isn't what your interested in), and the casting levels are a bit more difficult for beasts AFAIK.

first up drop four ironguts and replace with two or more units of 12 gnoblar trappers which you will use as redirecters they cost 55 points which is a bloddy bargain they force every unit/model type to take a dangerous terrain test and if your clever with your firebelly there units will fail on 1s and 2s.

I would personally drop one maneater and stick in a firebelly I think you should have enough points spare and also how often is a flame banner going to come in useful give them mournfangs the dragonhide banner if you can squeeze the points also just use those sabretusks for warmachine hunting thats if you take the gnoblars.

good luck mate

also drop a level off the butcher and go with signature spell every time I mean the slaughtrrmaster is going to be getting strengh or toughness every time so how about T7 S6/7 mournfang (bloody scary) 12S6 and 16S7 plus impact hits and stomps jesus.

get rid of the bigname see if you can squeeze hellheart on someone and the runemaw you will end ip directing the spell on to mournfangs or maneaters not good lose it.
