    Big stuff and rank bonuses?

    Once again I must ask a dumb question, :p

    How manny ogre do you have to have in a row to get a rank bonus? Is it 4 wide? or 2?

    Do you need 8 ogre to get a rank bonus?

    Or just 4?

    Or do they get any at all?

    Four wide as per usual. All units that can claim RB must be at least four models wide, anything less and no RB. It goes by models not US as many have believed. The only army with an exception to this rule are Brets, in the Lance formation they may be three wide and still claim ranks.

    Swarms don't have ranks no, they're really too small to gain from the rule (also who'd be afriad of a snotling pushing another in the back? )

    Hehe I dident think so.... But an orc player can always dream.....




    Spearman: "run for your lives! the snotlings! Look! the snotlings in the back of the pile are pushing the ones in the front forward! we are all going to die! Run for you lives!"

    Captain slaps Spearman

    Captain: "Pull yourself together man, they are scuffing my boots also, but im not ready to call a retreat."
