The club where I play is holding a FB tourney and I've decided to dust off my old Ogres and throw them into the fray once more. (the Backstabber Tribe)
What do you fellows think of this? It's a bit of a departure from what I normally play, in that it verges more towards an MSU strategy. I used to play extremely Gnoblar-heavy with only a few large and heavily screened and armored infantry units.
The idea is to use speed to encircle the enemy. The two Ironguts move up the center, with the Gnoblars screening for the huge Ironguts unit. The flanks are guarded by the naked Bulls and the Leadbelchers. The Yhetees, the Hunter, and the Trappers move along the flanks to steer the enemy towards the Ironguts. The Gorgers come in from the rear to take out war machines and lone casters.
Does this look good? Does it look like complete rubbish? I welcome and encourage all comments, complaints and suggestions.

Umm dude your tyrant has 110pts of magical stuff + bignames....
tenderiser bullgut wallchrusher tailsman of protection.....
Other than that its a good list. though Id say a bit light on magic, but still good.
Other than what Gil said I would also get rid of the bang stick for either skull mantle or a second dispel scroll. Reason being while you will have 4 (well really 5) Power dice you really can't hope to get any spell off just to easy.
That said giving him skullmantle means giving improving fear checks and potentially affecting CR for the unit he is in, in a way that cannot be dispelled. Making him a scroll caddy is self explanitory.
Other option is to scrap him altogether and make the butcher a BSB with some Thiefstones to give the unit he is MR or whatever..
On magic items, fists of laurels or jadelion can be priceless for the tyrant....I never lose my tyrant to combat...I lose him when he breaks...extra rolls there are always good.
Lastly move the bellowers from the IG's to the bulls....That will allow the bulls to bait and flee easier.....
