I really can't think of anything witty to say.
He was asking for help on how to beat ELVES with OGRES, not howw to beat ogres with elves.
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
I'm a dark elf player who has never even seen the orge army list but like anything else just take advantages of their weaknesses. I can't think of many ways but just think that every model has toughness 3 which makes them fairly easy to beat up in combat sometimes (forgeting WS, I and A)
Yeah I can't help you either, I play as Dark Elves- and I've never lost a game against Ogres.
They're just so slow...and there's hardly any of them....
Uh...let me think...
Dark Riders are a big threat, a big shock absorbing unit of spearmen can withstand an ogre charge as you'll get shot up on the way in, and dark riders will just flank or rear charge you and end up slaughtering you.
I'd keep your army tight, but the best way really is to just keep playing dark elves and work out your own strategy- I doubt many dark elf players are going to post how to beat dark elves in the dark elf forum
(eerie shadow whispers in your ear).......Come with No armor upgrades and keep a lot of space between your units. Take as many Leadbelchers as you can and march straight accross the battlefield and take out the Dark elves in a FLURRY of cannon fire! Those pesky Dark Riders can easily be beaten.....just march accross the field backwards and they won't get your rear flank! Likewise, Dark Elves have little to no ranged weaponry and what they do have usually misses with such weak ballistic skills. You should loose few units on the approach and crush them under your mighty Maw! Keep to these sound tactics and all will be well.......You have little to fear........(shadow vanishes into the night)
erm... say that again about DE doesn't have any good shooting!?... they survive by shooting and magic as they wont stand in CC... RBTs will kill of ogers pretty fast. Even massed RxB fire... shure they're S3 but massed they should get at least some wounds, and if the ogers doesn't have armor they'll suffer. Also they need to have good magic protection as DE are one of the better magic user armies in WHFB world. Dark Riders are anoying cause they can shoot and they're fast cavalry... means they don't get into CC very often. And at only 12" range with their cannons they won't shoot anything unitl well after turn 3.Originally Posted by Romulus
I'd say go to CC fast! Cause it's there where DE is weakest. Take a hunter or two and use some gnobar trappers. Use Gorgers and Yhetees as they are fast or have special deployment.
Hunters Harpoon Crossbow are good ranged support and their Sabertusks are Dark Rider hunters... theird job is to hunt down dark riders. Use maxed Bulls (light armor + ironfist) against DE, as you'll then have 4+Sv in CC witch is very usefull. If he got an expensive lord or something charge it with a smal unit of Ironguts... S6 = insta kill elf characters if they take an wound. Have lookout gnobars to minimize incoming shooting wounds. Use gnobar fighters as charge blocks, if they charge... make shure that they charge your gnobars! If you have the points to spare a slavegiant should be nice as well.

Erie shadow......Dark Elf Assassin......whispers lies to the Ogres......get it? :p
Ignore bolt throwers! They aren't that good at all! What you need to do is send your slow moving units after the Dark riders, and don't worry about being hit in the flank by units like witch elves as they aren't very good.
Sound advice to acheive a crushing victory!
