    the priest is completely useless by himself, I would know im how for more saurus they need to be bulky to tkae the ogre charge without breaking.

    Why not some Saurus cavalry, they'll get the charge on them and wound alot, and ogres aren't known for their saves. the mounted saurus will hit on 3s and wound on 3s!

    Use many scouting skinks. The poison simply slaughters the naked ogres and if they turn around to charge the skinks that reveals their flank. Salamanders are also quite good.

    also despite the ogres' shortcommings in larger games, i think that ogres are amazing at the 1000pts. or less scale

    that's true, small scale limits the number of warmachines you can field, and the fewer the better!

    My friend played a lizzies player and got ultimatly slaughtered by poison dart and being way outnumbered by the time he got into combat and was cut down by the sauri. like bruiser117 said take lots of blow-pipes and saurus blocks and you should get the last laugh :p

    u def dont need pratically ne magic in 650 points, yea just get a block of saurus with scar vet n skinks, the saurus would com 2 210 for 15 of them n fc n then the scar vet shuld b aroun 100 points, a unit of 12 skinks 72 points (3 of those) unit of 10 skinks (1 of those) n fill in the gaps with a salamander huntin pack n well thers the list lmao, if the scar-vet is exactly 100 points (most likely less) it turns out to be 651 points ive spent 2 much time on this lol happy gamin

    Kroxigors will be VERY nice. (if you can afford them pointwise) They're highstrength and ability to charge through skinks make them very vertasile against ogres, having a very high chance to damage and kill them. Just remember to hide them with the skinks so the ogres don't get a first charge, cuz if they do.... No more kroxigors.

    I would take a unit of 3-6 of kroxigors to cause enough damage to wipe out the ogres. However, this may prove costly in such a small game so if you decide to delude that path, just get a hero or more skinks :lol:

    although I wouldn't recommend a hero in such a small point list with such an expensive pointwise army against orgres.

    Just my thoughts

    THE.

    well i think i will take the advise of taking some cold ones riders....but i was adding up his basic point cost and it was at 688 and i was at 650 so thats like one whole ogre...and in a small game like that its alot...
