Hi, ok, so I am collecting my 2nd WHFB army along with a friend of mine and we're doing it as challenges in a blog called "Construction of destruction" its a whole "tale of gamers" thing.

I am going to be picking Ogres for my army (officially we pick tomorrow but i'll be loosing my internet for a week after today so thought i best get on with it!)

The list i'm going for is more "shooty" than a standard list.

But being completely new to ogres and having never played aginst them any help with what to pick would be great - though i intend to theme the army one of 2 ways

1) go for a northern tribe and an icey feel - lots of sabretooths and thundertusks

2) go for a crazy eccentric ogre tyrant thinks he's karl franz and have loads more guns than my existing list (a medium) and also more gnoblars (his peons)

The medium list is as follows



Lord
Ogre Tyrant (Brutus Giantbreaker)



Giantbreaker BIG name



Thunder mace



Dragon helm



2sword gnoblars+1 luck gnoblar



brace of hand guns



heavy armour






Lord
butcher



3 tooth gnoblars1 luck gnoblar



dispel scroll






Hero
Firebelly


Hero
Bruiser Battle standard






Core
10Bulls w/ Ironfists & FCG + look Gnoblar


Core
5 Ironguts


Core
40 Gnoblar + Groinbiter






Special
3 Leadbelchers

Thanks for your help :)

Are you using the older book? It seems as though you may be, since characters no longer take gnoblars, with exception of Look Out gnoblars on the Standard Bearers.

You seem to have some odd unit totals here. I can tell you most people run Leadbelchers in units of 4.

Not sure how you plan on running 10 bulls.....5x2? If so, drop it to 9 and go 3x3, it helps the Ogre Charge strength.

Gnoblars are not worth it, for any reason. If you need chaff, stick to Sabertusks. They act as awesome re-directors and can stand in combat vs. most chaff.

I also find Yhetee's and the Scraplauncher to be trash. The 3 Mournfang are excellent. Add an extra one with saved points.

If you want, I can post a sample of what I would do.

Hi - yes I am using the old book I'll be buying the new one today. Points wise stuff not in the new book I had to use totals from a battle report in old white dwarf issue.

Leadbelchers in 4's is fine I ordered 4 off ebay last night to start my collection I'll probably go with 3 unit of 4. Thanks for the advice and yeh I'd like to see the kind of list you would use :)

Althought I'll almost certainly include a Gnoblar unit just because I have a lot of ideas for making mini-diorama's in the unit.

Is taking 2 Ironblasters worth considering?

Thanks
