Which, of the two units presented, is better?
4 Chaos Ogres with Great Weapons (164pts)
3 Chaos Trolls (165pts)
If you have the Mark of Khorn go for the ohgures but if you have the mark of Nurgle go for the Trolls and the outher Marks it doesnt matter..... :cool:
I'm not sure how marks came into this, but Nurgle and trolls does make sense.
I think ogres are the most useless of the monsters in the beasts list. Trolls have better stats, and regnerate which can keep them alive for days. More attacks, higher strength, and troll vomit is a nice little tool against knights. Ogres are only nice because they can get a 3+ save in combat, otherwise, minotaurs are much better. Minotaurs can do the great weapon and two hand weapons configuration, so if that's your weapons of choice, take minotaurs.
Of those two, I think trolls fit the beast list better. Use them as flankers or in conjunction with a beast herd (much like a chariot) and they should excel.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
