Does anyone find it strange that for the points cost of one ogre bull with iron fist you can get an entire unit of 20 gnoblar fighters? And if you give him light armor he costs more than that unit with a champion?
I just thought it was funny.
I've always wondered what would happen if you took 6 huge (35+) units of gnoblars and then some bulls/guts to back them up. If you don't have something that can give tons of attacks, they're quite formidable. stand and shoot and then tons of bodies and ranks.
gnoblers are in my opinion (which is the only one that matters /flex) Gnoblars are the best unit for the points cost in any army list. I would take alot more then my single unit if i didnt have to take more bulls to do so as Bulls are terrible.
On the flip side OK units are overpriced for what they do which lends alot to the comparison.

Really starting to love these gnoblars. Today I had a single rank of 20 gnoblars in front of my ogres. Stand and stood killed 2 knights of the realm. They got massacred in CC, but i lost 40 points and killed like 48 worth of knights. Next game I put them on my flank and left them there. My opponent just ignored them earning me 100 points for the 40 invested.

Hopefully the OK book will be redone after the Hordes of chaos books, we eed a re-evaluation on points costs.
But all in al gnoblars for the win as any oppenant with under estiamte the power of sharp stuff.
Unit of 18 gnoblar trappers massacaring a unit of 25 white lions, was awesome.

Not really. What is funny is that soo many people don't value gnoblars. I have been in the habbit of buying a unit for every unit of bulls I take. I see it as a 40 point upgrade on the bulls. Probably one of the only upgrades worth taking except maybe x-hw's and bellower.
So anyways I usually take 2-3 units of bulls so 2-3 gnoblar fighter units too. I ALWAYS take trappers.
Btw here is a list of units that I think are better than gnoblars point for point:
1. Tomb scorpion
2. Goblin Spearchucka
3. Dwarf Bolt Thrower
4. Anvil of Doom
5. Beastmen chariots
7. Pegasus Kights
gnoblers are much better than the anvil of doom 1 anvil or 250 gnoblers?
Loki's quote about best unit for the points has generated some kind of debate!
I'd like to put in my vote for Skaven slaves. They're still 2 points each (because why would you ever give a shield to a slave???), and they can have a leadership of 8 with the rank bonus!
