Im new to warhammer fantasy and am thinking of starting up with Ogres, so I have a few questions before I buy any models.
A. Is it ok to have JUST an Ogre army with no gnoblers?? I think they're called just Ogres and nothing else?
A. I hate the new Butcher and Tyrant do you have to have either of them?
A. How much would a small 1000 pts cost to play with my friend?
1.) The only basic unit that you must have in your army is 1 unit of Ogre Bulls. Everything else is optional. You also need a general.
2.) Your general must be either a Bruiser or a Tyrant. If you don't like the current models you can always create one of your own from a bulls or Iron Guts sprew. You could also use a different model altogether as long as it is on a 40 x 40 base.
3.) a single battalion box should be able to get you near 1,000 points depending on what upgrades you take. One extra unit (like another Iron Guts box) should put you at 1,000. So...it should 'only' be 150 dollars or less if you buy models at listed price.
Hope that helped.
I'm just starting Ogres as well, with a battalion box, 9 extra bulls, and 4 extra lead belchers. I'm planning to play around the 2000 point level.
What I'm wondering is if it's worth getting a scraplauncher. The Ogres don't seem to have any other artillery, but they're fast enough to get into close combat quickly. I wanted to know if they were worth it.
Also, is it worth getting more than one unit of gnoblars?

2. The Tyrant actually looks good once painted. Check out the Blood Gruel thread in my signature to see the one I painted. The Butchers I don't like so much, but you can find the Reaper model I used instead.
3. I don't know, but you can visit the GW site or a store and just add it all up. Get the army book first so you know what you want. Get some bulls, a bruiser, some iron guts, and maybe some leadbelchers.
The model is an absolute witch to assemble and paint. Beware the scraplauncher assembly and painting process.
3. Buy the ogre battalion box. You get well over 1000 points worth of ogre's and with a bit o converting everything you need to play.

scraplaunchers are great against horde armys and perfect for disrupting enemy late game shooting as youll probably end up in one of their front line units anyway, just remember not to leave it stationary for more than 3 turns, after a while his shooting will lose effect as their numbers dwindle and youll want to get him stuck into anything that still needs killing.
gnoblars are wonderfull but before you take a second unit try taking trappers, theyll usually lead your enemy into trees or march block allowing you to manipulate your opponent just a little more so you can get the charge, personally i only ever run one unit with the trappers, 2 units just get in the way sometimes, especially when playing wood elves, but most of the time are just as effective as ever.
