    First off, I love that you're doing the hunter in sabertusks, they're sorely underrated. As for adjustments, I don't think you have enough to hold the line as far as bodies are concerned. The dragonhide banner on 6x IGs and the BSB is a lot of points in a small unit, so I'd avoid this. I'd say try to find your focus in making the army. I see a gorger and vanguarding hunter in your future, but these two units alone aren't enough to really be more than a minor inconvenience that even a few single units of sabertusks could provide (albeit not to the same degree). If you want to spend the points on a hunter in sabertusks, make him a threat + support him with more units to make the opponent really have to mess around with the movement of his whole army. a unit of 5 sabertusks + the hunter, 2x single saber tusks, a unit of scouting maneaters and a gorger (or a few MFC) could really make your opponent sweat if you wanted to really mess with him. You should still have enough points for a sufficient mass of ogres and a TT/SH + IB, too. Say:

    Lords: 320
    L4 SM w. GW, glittering scales (maw)

    Heroes: 504
    hunter w. longstrider, GW + talisman of endurance
    L1 butcher w. disp scroll (beasts)
    BSB w. talisman of preservation, warrior bane, IF + HA

    Core: 628
    19x Ogres w. IFs and musician + banner

    Special: 629
    5x sabertusks
    1x sabertusk
    1x sabertusk
    8x maneaters w. 4x extra HWs, 4x GWs, banner with flame banner + musician (scout and stubborn/another better skill depending on the opponent) 482


    This is something I'd recommend to keep the overall flavor of your existing list as it will put a strong initial threat on a flank + alongside a large and durable horde of ogres (22 strong with all the chars!). I traded the TT for a SH b/c it can move up pretty quickly to support the ME's and vanguarding hunter. If you're nervous about other power house units, take a CoC on your SM, axe the IB (i know, gasp!) and add 3x yhetees, 3x IGs, a scrap launcher, or a gorger + Ogre + champ) . People hate on yhetees, but if you can regen bubble to include them and make sure they're not paired up against a flame banner unit, you'll be fine. Plus they'll be low priority, swiftstride, initiative 4 and M7, which will go great with your sabers. I love my yhetees and virtually no enemies prepare for them or feel too threatened until they're on their flanks. Happy hunting!
