Can a IG army have a fully or many many Ogryn and Tanks ??
PS::: I know nothing about IG rules...
I Love Bad Moonz!!!
Outside of Apocalypse games, no. Ogryns are elite choices and the maximum squad size is 10. Tanks (with the exception of Chimera's and Sentinels) take up a single slot in their appointed categories.
In an Apocalypse game, the only thing stopping you putting together such an army is cost - a full squad of 10 Ogryns would set you back a staggering £120 - much better to fork out an extra £30 and get yourself 10 LRBT's, in my opinion.
i dont see why not?
3 full squads of ogryns, giving you 30
take mechanized docterine and dont give your infantry much(keep em cheap, probably just a special weapon)
take 3 heavy support(your choice)
3 fast attack slots(9 sentinels or 3 hellhounds.....decisions, decisions(i know what i would pick XD)
3 sentinels as part of HQ choice
should be able to fit it all within 2000-2500 pts if you do it right, and it will have
3 heavy tanks(basalisk/leman russ/demolisher
3 medium tanks/9 sentinels
3 HQ support sentinels
and at least 7 chimeras
and 45 men or more
Hellhounds are good tanks
Satan - "**** you Kage! And **** you Jables! I'll get you Tenacious DDDDdddddddeeeeee!!!!!!"
In the Chapter aproved Abhuman doctrine list (not tournament legal) you can pay extra points to make an ogryn squad a troops choice but they lose their ripper gun and get an extra ccw
pretty cool fluff but ull have to spend alot of money to play a list that you need your opponents consent to use
"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
Sounds like a fun idea but the thing is that with the new rules of 5e edition, if they do poorly one round of battle and are forced to fall-back then there all dead is they get swept.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
Hmm that almost makes this Ogryn idea worth it.
Not that I'd what to drop the money on the "real" metal minis but If you have an eye for conversions well I highly recommend picking up some of the Plastic Ogres from WHFB. I think you can get 6 for 40 USD.
Thats 30 for 200 USD instead of 30 for 600 USD>
Fifth Edition Saved 40k for Me. I love my ratlings and my cover saves!
