My friend collects Dark Elves and beats me nearly every time. Since I'm starting Ogres I want to try and build an army ideal for stomping the dark pansies, but what should I take in the army? This DE player likes his magehammer, and takes a cavalry army with lots of dark riders, cold ones and chariots backed up with crossbows and bolt throwers. he is also planning on expanding it with elite infantry. Can you guys help me with tactics/army selection?
Leadbelchers are very nice versus cavalry, wheras yhetees and hunters are you best bet for taking out the bolt throwers/crossbowmen.
charge as fast as you can! take plenty of standard troops and watch your ogres throw elves in every possible direction maybe your tyrant should be armed with great weapon and "mountainstrider" bigname, and make sure you aren't outflanked by chariots/cavalry
never forget, never forgive
Going against High elves ive used a long unit of 6 bulls as a screen... As they move faster then gnoblars it works well and if your rushing flanks arent open to bolt throwers. There should be about 3 bulls that can tie up chariots or horses. If your running a 8 unit bulls or iron guts behind that screen you smash into them and do very well, also use gnoblars as a screen for leadbealchers so they dont get shot up. gnoblars panic and run off or get out of the way at the right time alot of times and at 2 points a piece that doesnt matter O yea i forgot if you add 1str and 1T with a slaughtermaster and a butcher they can take out a chariot with 1 wound... ironguts then become str 7. I also recommend a butcher and slaughtermaster then you can cast +1 str on iron guts with 4 powerdice, that will be extremly hard to dispell and will last awhile. once you get into combat ranged wont matter and its hard for them to wound with high toughness especially with gut magic.
