Welcome to Librarium Online!
Now, I don't want to trash talk Ogres, as I play them and love them, I would just like to compile into one thread all of the items/rules/units/stats that are completely useless or pointless. Kind of like a, laugh at yourself and point out your faults sort of thing, nothing insultive.
So, I'm going to start.....
The Dragonhide Standard
Immune to ICE MAGIC, really?
10 points for a thing we can get free in an club
for the emperor,for the great maw,blood for the blood god,
for the horned rat!!!!!
Hey, Kislev has nice magic... Too bad maybe 2 people in the world play that army.
tooth gnoblars: all teh spells are 3+ to cast, if you get less than 3 auto-fail so +1 aint gonna help
sword gnoblars: 5 points for str2 attack?
bullgut: yay US6 and armour piercing bull charge, perfect for lone flank charges.....'cept bull chage don't work if there are less than 3 ogres?
I think what is forgotten about the Dragon Hide Standard is that being immune to ice magic...is a footnote to its true abillities, which is on the turn the unit charges (and with 12" will be nearly all the time) they can all reroll 1's to hit, wound, and armoursave. Useless, no, slightly overpointed, maybe.
I agree with the biting blade though, as a magic item it cant even be used with a mundane handweapon so given an ironfist the fist can only ever be used as a shield and not an extra attack, unlike the club which although will loose -1 to armour will get the extra attack from the ironfist.
Being that gut magic is relativly easy at the moment to dispell unless its a butcher force against an army with little magic deffense getting those +1s to the value for only *tiny amount*pts is actualy really good.
The sword gnobler on the other hand. all it needed was to be a poisend attack and the little guy may have been worth it, but as it stands, if i had *tiny amount* pts left over and nothing else to upgrade i still wouldnt take one.
My biggest upset is the Greyback Pelt! Potential here for an amazing unit by putting a hero/lord in some yetees and watch them fly through terrain....but then if you take it you cant have any yetees in your army! EPIC FAIL!
