Which are better for a main unit in an army?
At his feet a dying Tarkanan warrior urtered the words, 'Long live the Dragon King....'
what army lets trolls be main choices?
Yeah, this is excellent! TY Angel of Rust!

Neither. Minotaurs are a MUCH better choice than either of them. They have better LD,the ability to be marked,higher WS,pursue enemies 3d6. They rock.
Minotaurs are the best, for reasons already stated (and then some). After that, I would say trolls (out of the 2 remaining options). More attacks, they don't need armour, the only downside is they have to be babysat by the army general. Sure, ogres are a little more reliable, but pack less of a punch generally.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
Yes, Minotaurs are just a million times better than either. First of all, they can be core, so they actually can be the center of your army. They can be given a mark, which is extremely helpful. Make them Nurgle and suddenly they have a 4+AS along with their T4 and W3. Make them Khorne and they suddenly have as many attacks as a Lord, EACH!
-My Warrior Priest will challenge your Chaos Lord
-OK, my Chaos lord will slaughter you
-My warrior priest with Van Hortsmen's Speculum will take his 7 Str 8 attacks. You die.
-Take your model off the table, he's dead
Yep. Minotaurs are absolutely wonderful. The BoC list is so starved for units able to be marked that minotaurs are just amazing. I also cant tell you how many times that 3d6 pursuit move has helped me too,in some cases catching a unit and destorying it for enough victory points to win me the game
Trolls are horrible. If your using a beastlord their LD is at most 8,meaning you will fail your stupidity test 2 out of six turns. Thats bad. If you have a doombull,i suppose you could buy trolls,but IMO you should still take the minotaurs since their core.
trolls can be good if you use the slaanesh luxurious torment spell but thats the only time they're any good.
orges are really bad, they should be only used if you actually like their fighting type, in other words dont play BoC, use a orge kingdom army as they have good orges.
minotaurs without a question, if you already have them and were just wondering whoich of trolls or orges would be good to add, id say jus use the points for another squad of 'taurs.
