My friend is starting up an Ogre Kingdoms army, and GW is telling every one the way to win is through massive volleys of missile weapons. What are us Bretonnian players to do with are poor selection of missile weapons??? my army is a mix of KotR and peasents, will some one please tell me how i can overcome this Ogre Threat with the Bretonnains lack of fire power.
What GW are failing to tell you is the other way to win against ogres - cavalry in lance formation! Your weapon skill is level, but you have better strength and an insane amount of attacks on the charge. You will break ogres most of the time you get the charge in with knights, and with your higher armour save you can usually weather any return blows. CR should do the rest for you and you should be able to overrun them when you purse 3d6".
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

If you read the "Against the Ogres" article on the GW website, you'll find that there are more than just volleys of artillery to take out ogres. The three best ways were artillery, cavalry (of any kind) and flyers. Guess what, you have all of them! The treb will do wonders if you can hit them, pegasus knights can actually out speed the big boys, and your basic knights of the realm unit can smash through a unit a turn.
Just be sure he doesn't set you up for a flank charge or heck, any kind of charge. Your two ranks and standard can only go far against the armor piercing goodness of ogres. Be sure to get the charge off, and make sure he runs. That way it's a lot harder for him to set up flank maneuvers.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
