View Full Version : New to Warhammer Fantasy, Thinking of Starting Ogres

25-08-2005, 19:43
As I said in the title I'm new to Warhammer (I play 40k) and I'm thinking of starting Ogres. I have a box of Bulls and I am thinking of buying the Battalion box as well as a Tyrant to start off. My question is how many points would all the units add up to. I am just trying to gauge the cost of this army. I would have a Tyrant or Bruiser, 2x6 bulls, 4 ironguts, 4 leadbelchers, and 24 gnoblars. I would probably give the bulls light armor, iron fists, and full command, and have the rest of my units similarly tooled up (unless this is a terrible idea). If I could get the amount of points these models add up to that would be great. I don't need individual units point costs, just this is about a 1500 (or whatever) point army.

I do no think that is against the rules, but I could be wrong. Sorry if this is the worong forum for this.

With a Bruiser, that comes out to about 1300 points depending on magic items. Adding a Butcher and another unit of Gnoblars would bring you up to the 1500 mark.

If you take those:
Bruiser, 2x6 bulls, 4 ironguts, 4 leadbelchers, and 24 gnoblars

and add a butcher in it (which is a very good idea) you would get pretty close to 1500points.

And you can't get a Tyrant because he's a Lord and Lord can only be taken at 2000points or more.

well, tryants are fairly costly, so with atyrant, bruiser, butcher, and what you have there, along with another unit, or a hunter, could make a nice 2k

i played a similar army today and beat them though....
eh, its all down to tactics i guess...

Thanks for the quick replies, guys! It looks like my ogre force will be started...someday...after my Lost and the Damned...and then there's the Black Templars...oh well, eventually.

Oh, am I correct in assuming that 1500 points of fantasy is about 1000 pts of 40k, and that 2000 of fantasy is about 1500 of 40k?

Pretty much, I don't play 40k, but thats the picture I have gotten.

2000 points is the 'standard' and its when you can include a lord choice.
