Heya all,

I recently started an Ogre Kingdoms army and I would like to have a thread running about the tactics (if they even exist) on how to play with these big baddies.

I started with buying the army boxed set and have painted about 850 points worth of it. I plan to play against our storemanager next saturday with everything I have painted up till then, so I won't have a butcher which may prove to be problematic. But maybe I can persuade my opponent to play a special scenario of some kind.

So, for saturday I'll certainly be playing the following:

- 1 Bruiser with a brace of handguns

- 4 Ogre Bulls with full command (and lookout gnoblar) armed with those special extra hand weapons (the name escapes me now)

- 4 Ironguts with full command (including the mandatory lookout)

- 3 Yhetees (I might upgrade one of them to a greyback, but I'm not sure yet)

- 8 Gnoblar Trappers

If I'm lucky I'll be able to paint my Hunter with his Sabretusks and another unit of Ogre Bulls by saturday, if so they're going in there.

I'm not a real big fan of lots of magic items, so I'm not sure whether to include them, maybe just to bump my points total up to 1500 points.

So if anyone has played with or against the ogres, this is the place to rant about them.

Gobbles.
