Hey guys, I never played beasts of chaos but i already started to paint 2 beast herds as it is one of the armies i'm planning to play later this year.
I'm about to head out to the games day france and i'm planning to buy some stuff there as one out of 4 blisters is free so I was wondering if Dragon Ogres were worth it or if i'm better of taking some more Minotaurs.
I'm considering buying some warhounds and a chariot but i'm unsure whether i should buy minotaurs or dragon ogres. Dragon ogres look awfully expensive in points but the extra wound might make it worth it.
So i'd like to hear your opinion people, knowing that i'll mostly play 1000 points army lists.
fyi atm i have 2 beast herds boxes, 2 minotaurs w heavy weapon, a wargor and shaman so what do you think i should buy ?
as you already have 2 minos, it would be cheaper to just get 2 more of them. i dont get why there so much better than ogres but only 5 points more! anyway, saying that, D.ogres are hard! im not a big fan of the models, get some, but in small games (<1.5K) id suggest only running either the minos or the D.ogres, just experiment to see which you prefer (personaly id go with dragon ogres) hope this helps.
Well if I look at it from my perspective, I would rather by The Dragon Ogers, so maybe get 3 Mino's and the 4th blister make it a Dragon Oger.
If you compare stats though, the Dragon Oger is by far better with more attacks, a better save, more wounds, better Leadership( I think ) and better strenght(Great Weapons) so personally I would use Dragon Ogers but Minotaures are very good for their cost.
3 Dragon Ogres with great weapons and light armour cost 237 points
3 Minotaurs with great weapons cost 138 points and a chariot costs 85 points, adding up to 223 points.
I think the last option sounds the better...
I'm with Auere here. More numbers and better CC capacity for the same price. I've tried dragon ogres, and they die just as easy as any other monster unit if they get outmaneuvered and flanked. Minotaurs + a chariot will be difficult to outmaneuver.
