Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi i'm just getting into Warhammer and me and my friend are both starting with 500 pts, what is wrong with this list apart from the lack of gnoblars?
Bruiser (Cathayan longsword and heavy armour) 142
3 Ironguts 144 (deployed with bruiser)
3 Bulls 105
3 Bulls 105
I wanted to keep the Bruiser as cheap as possible while having as many orgres on the table as possible.
The bulls will flank the ironguts and hopefully protect their flanks.
Also I don't know what army my friend is starting and he doesn't know mine.
I don't think there's anything wrong with this list. When you find out what army your friend is going to be playing, I'd decide then whether or not to put the Bruiser with the Ironguts. If it's a magic-centric army, I'd put him with them for protection, but if not, I'd actually consider having him alone as a one unit battering ram so to speak. With his movement and initiative buff with the Cathay, he could do some flanking on his own. Just remember to keep him within five inches of any of the other three units, so he can't be picked out as a single target.
Thanks Mishra I didn't think of running the bruiser solo.
I now know my friend will be playing dwarfs so I may replace the longsword with a great weapon or am i better off striking first most the time?
Would it be worth adding a gorger to my list in place of a couple of bulls because they are just so cool:w00t: :yes:
I don't know about dropping some bulls for a Gorger ecspecially in a 500pt game. The list looks as solid as a 500pt Ogre list can. Now I will probably be shot on sight for what I am about to say but here goes. I would try and fit in some gnoblars cause I think it would strengthen your army list. Now if you did do that then you could probably squeeze in that Gorger. Then you would have units total and the gnoblars would act as a screening for your Ironguts and that unit of bulls. Just a tought though.
Sorry for being longwinded.
cheers Manakari I think I now have my final list!
Bruiser siegebreaker Heavy armour 164
I will have to see how this fairs against my friends dwarfs now.
