I recently acquired some Ogres and am wondering what I should add or do with them to make them usable.
10 Ogre Bulls
1 hunter with 2 sabretusks
1 Greasus Goldtooth
I play High and Wood Elves currently and am looking for a change. I really like the Gnoblars and was thinking of getting a big unit of them and a scraplauncher. What else should I be looking for? I was trying to keep this army small (1000-1500 points) and use it as Mercenaries in large games.'
All help would be appreciated!
Welcome to the Kingdoms!
I suggest getting a bruiser or two (very easy to convert from almost any plastic ogre), and a butcher. Ironguts were the mainstay of the army back in 7th, but now I guess it's anyones guess. Oh, and the Dogs of War rule is gone, so the ogres are no longer mercenaries. You can still use them as such in friendly games, naturally.
Scraplaunchas? Amazin' :]

Do all the restrictions that the army-book has still apply in this edition? like the bulls 1+ and tyrant 0-1? and the gnoblars 1:1 ratio with bulls, and the scraplaunchers with 1:1 with gnoblars? Because with the new edition i was thinking about getting a few scraplaunchers, but i would rather have one really big unit of gnoblars instead of a few...
correct me if im wrong, doesnt that mean that i need a unit of bulls for each scrap launcher as well? I thought that you had to have a unit of bulls for each unit of gnoblars and therefore each scrap launcher? I think...
Once again welcome to the Ogre Kingdoms(more of a tribe, but hey)
My friends and i traditionally kept it down to 1000pts as they were a lot faster and easier to understand for the newer people to understand. i dont have the 8th ed yet but will soon.
I always have a bruier as i need his combat abilities and the extra leadership as hes the general. I also get a butcher as Ogres have some of the best magic in the game, in my opinion.(Getting regeneration and magic resistance 2 is awesome of the roll of a 3+ or 1+ toughness and stubborn).
You have to have at least 1 unit of bulls in any army and i always recommend a unit of gnoblars, 2-1 gorgers and a scrap launcher to deal with large blocks of infantry.
Good luck with your Ogre Tribe and keep killing those pesky elves.
