A problem's been nagging me: how do you competitively play Ogres in a 1000 point game. Here's my best shot:
Tyrant w/great weapon, jade lion
Butcher w/dispel scroll
8 Bulls w/musician, standard, lookout gnoblar
4 Ironguts w/musician, standard, lookout gnoblar
10 Gnoblar Trappers
The tyrant normally goes with the bulls, and the butcher with the ironguts. If the enemy has a lot of shooting, both characters go with the bulls, and ironguts will run in front.
In any case, both units will stay to one side of the field, so they aren't easily surrounded.
The gorger hunts war machines.
I feel this is really the only competitive list at this size. You need at least 3 units besides characters, a good sized unit of bulls and ironguts, a way to kill distant war machines, and a source of gut magic. The jade lion is there because if you roll bad and panic at any point in the game, you're probably screwed.
What do you think?

I don't see why you need a tyrant in 1k. A bruiser with some magic gear would be sufficiently deadly, and allow some more points for troops, maybe a block of gnoblars.
It's the only way to get gut magic into the list. You can't take a butcher unless you have a bruiser or tyrant, and you can't take a slaughtermaster unless you have a tyrant. You could take a bruiser and a butcher, but that'd be over the 25% hero cap at 1000 points.
It's either tyrant/butcher, or no gut magic or dispelling at all, and I don't think that's a good idea.
After some playtesting, I've decided to switch the gorger for gnoblar trappers. They're better at warmachine hunting.
Can't you just take a butcher as your only character?
Nope, butchers can't be the army general, so if you want a butcher in a 1000 point game, you'll need to also take a Tyrant.
I would prefer more units, by maybe cutting the bulls to 3 and insert another unit of guts, or at least splitting those 8 bulls. Wev got M6, lets use it to flank!
yeah, my ogres got raped but nightgoblins, there were just too many of them, and ogres are to soft. You really need either magic or armoured ogres, which makes them very pricey.
I have a very simular list...
enchanted shield, cathayn longsword,heavy armour
thats 1001pts, would this be better as you can have multipule tokens on bulls now, yep that's right you can have strength 10, toughness 10, regeneration, magic resistance 2 ogres! a cannon needing 4+ to wound would be hilarious.
