Hey Guys! So I was thinking about starting an Ogre Kingdoms army after i got the majority of the rest of my armies painted and cases for them)(Man I love these smilies) well anyway what do you guys think? Got any advice tactics that should work? I'm probably gonna by the Army Book when the new Chaos Marines stuff comes out seeing as how that will be the next time im at the store must likely. I already have 1 unit of 4 leadbelchers that i use as DoW in my skaven army. So again any advice or tactics i should think about?
One bit of advice is don't just go with the advance and charge approach. Sure, Ogres are designed to assault and hit hard, but they just can't stand up to ranked units' static combat resolution. You still need to flank, use smart flee responses, and look at what phases you can excel in.
Ogres charge farther than almost every enemy unit, except cavalry. Cavalry is the bane of Ogres, especially Bretonnians. Play smart against these types of armies.
Gnoblars are dead cheap and makeup for the lack of ranks. Also, try shooting loads of sharp stuff at a large target. 20 gnoblars means 40 shots!
Don't forget gnoblar trappers. Marchblocking the enemy gives you the advantage of setting up the charges you want. They can also deal with warmachines well. Plus, they're cool models.
Ok thanks and i will look on ebay thats where i get most f my models from to.
But for $40, I'll toss them on the field and see how they perform.
Moral of the story: search for "oger" or "yeti" or "yetti" or "warhamer" every so often. Something will eventually pop up, and others won't find it.
wow thats a good deal good luck with them ive ssen them used there not half bad if u take advabtage and move them through lots of cover.
awsome what do you run so i get a general idea of what works?
Erm, don't ask me what works. I've only played 6 games or so with my OK army. I've lost more than I've won, though my wins have been massacres. Weird.
Bulls x 5 mus
Bulls x 5 mus
Ironguts x 5 mus, standard bearer, war banner
8 gnoblar trappers
4 gorgers (counts as two special in skrag army)
yea that does look wierd but with the yetis added in im sure you sould be able to win more games going on what ive seen them do.
