To be blunt and simple, get the Batallion boxed set. It becomes a lot of points quite easily.

Agreed. With a bit of conversion to make characters, the battallion box will run you 1000 points. It's also a well balanced and effective 1000 points. Check out http://www.ogrestronghold.com/forum/ For great ogre advice

I bought 2 batallions today and been doing some assembling to make this...

1 Tyrant Tenderiser, Wyrdstone Necklace 306
Heavy Armour, Longstrider, Luck Gnoblar

1 Butcher Bang Stick 155

1 Butcher Dispel Scroll 155

1 Butcher Dispel Scroll 155

3 Ironguts Bellower. Standard, Look Out Gnoblar 179

3 Ironguts Bellower. 154
3 Bulls Light Armour, Iron Fists, Bellower 139
20 Gnoblars 40
2 Lead Belchers 110
2 Lead Belchers 110
2 Lead Belchers 110
8 Gnoblar Trappers 48
1 Gorger 75
1 Gorger 75

Butchers are dead easy to convert, but I am going to need lots of greenstuff for the Tyrant.

Gorgers may prove too much for me, so I'll use Hordes Dire trolls perhaps.

Also 20 spare official gnoblars, with about 20+ on the ogre sprues that could make a 3rd unit of 20.

So with 6 spare ogres and 40 spare gnoblars you can get about 2200 points from 2 batallion boxes.


Cheers,

Gazzor

The Ogre Kingdoms army is a very rewarding army for converters and painters, but a little tricky to play. Seeing as you've checked out the stronghold, you should have no shortage of inspiration for a theme, and advice on how to accomplish it. A great tactical resource is Avian's Ogre tactics page @http://folk.ntnu.no/tarjeia/avian/tactics/ogre_index.php, you'd probably come across it eventually like I did, because he is a member of warseer and the stronghold, but here it is. I've found it to be an excellent resource, as I am tactically challenged.:D

The ogre battalion is one of the best deals games workshop offers IMO.

The Ogre box is great and can give you about 1200pts if you use it right.

One day Chaos will get a battalion. Probably when the new books are released. Maybe even later this year if my GW friend was correct...
