Hello!
I've played with Vampires for a few years but they aren't a challenge to me anymore. So I've started with Ogres. :) I heard they are difficult to play with. I have played about 10 games with them so far and I lost 7 of them (good average ain't it :eyebrows: ). My army looks like tkis.

Any suugestions?

at 2500 points theres going to be alot of high class mages around so there the perfect defense, he has 3 which is not alot at this points level ......

A few things.

Magic makes my ogres very, very unhappy. Very. I find that three Butchers is really utilitarian for shutting down your opponent's magic phase(I run three, with a scroll each+the five dispel dice) and making the spells you want to happen, happen. With eight chances to cast your 3+ gut spells, most opponents won't be able to stop all your spells from happening.

I'd ditch the maneater. Unless you're going to field a unit of two, one just seems like wasted points. Either he's shooting fodder, or he WILL be run over by ranked units(and I haven't even mentoned cavalry units..).

I just don't like the scrap. I don't know why, when I took one, I found myself charging people with it rather than shooting. Odd, I know. I'd also divide your leadbelchers into two units of two, with musicians. Use them as bait units! Get em up front, fire off the cannons, and flee from charges!

Hopefully they can blast a few fast cav. units, and set up some advantageous charges for your bigger blocks of ogre infantry.

hope this helps!
