how do I protect Skrag from missile/magic fire? I m hoping that this number of gorgers coming on at the same time, will do some damage, get some rear charges off or seriously disrupt the lines of the enemy. Anyone have any experience playing with this many gorgers?

should I ditch the handguns (since I probably won't do much damage with a 5+ to hit) and get another leadbelcher or gnobars? I would like to make the hunters a bit bigger squad and I am concerned about the gorgers. In pairs, they rarely come on at the same time and usually die before they get to charge. I could replace them with a giant, or some maneaters.
sorry this isn't in the army lists, but it wouldn't let me post anything there.

I love Skrag, and he's the general of my OK list.
But how do you protect him? Well, about the only way is to screen him. Under 7th ed. rules he can be singled out from a unit because of his own unit size. He's just too damned big! That means everything can be thrown at him: bolt throwers, cannonballs, magic missiles, crossbows, you name it. He's a big fat target.
So you can do one of two things. Run him behind another unit and move him into the front unit before combat. Or do something to screen him.
Or you can just not tell your opponents that he can be singled out, reasoning that they should know the rules, and why should you point out your army's biggest flaw? To be honest, I go with the second reason, and it's worked fine so far. I'd feel slimy about it if I didn't know how my regular opponents play. They wouldn't tell me either! :rolleyes:
I'd drop a bruiser for a butcher. In my Skrag army, I use only Skrag and it's fine, but another butcher would really add some bang to the list.
The bulls and ironguts should be broken into smaller units. Three or four each.
I use four gorgers in my Skrag list. It's great. They really confound the enemy. They skew battle lines, hold up even really tough units. They don't always generate a lot of kills, but they are a definite tactical advantage.
And I try to get Skrag into combat ASAP most of the time. It's only then when his abilities really start to shine. He's a killing machine once he gets rolling.
sorry, I did have another butcher on the skrag list, just for bangstick (which damages the opponent or they have to waste dispel dice on it) and the cookbook. I must have erased it when I was taking the points off. One of the things I like about skrag is that when you get that first kill all the gorgers deploy. I was going to wait til skrag got his kill, then four of them deploy at once. There is no army that can kill all of those. By then, they'll have to either get a rear charge from my gorgers or one from the front. My problem is, they don't do all that well by themselves I have found. They are just a minor distraction in the balanced list as I ve seen from playing against them and watching my friend play.
As far as screening, maybe I can place him btwn the gnoblars and the ironguts and behind a gorger, that way I can still use the runemaw to deflect magic and psychologically threaten. Then charge the gorger (if he's a live) and skrag at the same time
just so the moderators aren't offended, I put this in the regular forum because you can't put a tag with your army list and it won't let you post amry lists inthe army list section. I'm not the only one either, because I've seen others complain of the same thing.
