    New Player to FB, 500 Pt Ogre Army for Friendly Games

    Hi, I am starting a Fantasy army and after looking over the model lines and hearing some testimonials at a local GW, I think I am going to play Ogre. I will be starting out by acquiring a 500 pt army to be used in friendly games. My first opponents would be Dwarfs and Vampire Counts (my friends), so any advice on tactics and/or army composition would be great.

    Thanks in advance!

    Personally, a 750pt list that I've had some success with looked similar to this:
    *Cheap Bruiser as the general
    *Unit of bulls (6 with a banner and champion, and ironfists)
    *Unit of ironguts/leadbelchers (drop this unit to get 500pts iirc)
    *Big unit of gnoblars (like, 30-40)
    *Gorger
    *Maybe a unit of trappers.

    Against gunlines, this list tends to really excel, since it's so quick. Never tried it out against VCs, since I don't know anyone who uses them, but I have managed to win a massacre against a list with three level two chaos sorcerors because I was able to hit quickly, and force a few units to flee which really worked in my favour.

    6 bulls in 1 unit!? Maybe against gunlines... but otherwise id say run simply 2 units of 3, no command, and just the Add. HWs (not ironfists)

    Otherwise, the above should see you good

    Actually, you're right. I think that unit may have been four or five now that I think of it. (the problem with units your size is #1 they come in 3+ units, and #2 you want at least four to increase your chances of landing a bull charge. Units of three never work).

    The flexibility afforded by the ironfists is a really convenient thing.

    Hehe, fair enough, my thinking is possibly a little too much towards TK chariot units (where i always use 3). Still, can you afford2x4 and the rest at just 500pts?

    And iirc, ironfists can act as an add HW or a shield (in combat only?. Using the shield gives you just a 5+Sv. Personally, poor armour saves are a waste of time to me lol. Extra attacks all the way! And its a tiny difference i know, but its an extra couple of gnoblars here and there lol.
