Heyhey, i was thinkin of using a few ironguts in my army as dogs of war. But i wonder how good are they? I was wondering how tough are they? I saw something in white dwarfs and ogre on an rino i remember that he had ALOT of thoughness and and wound, and so i wonderer how good are they? They look really brutal! :yes:
whatÂ´s the most positive and negative with the ironguts?
- Like All Ogres they have the Bull Charge
You can give them a magic standard (I use the one which allows you to re-roll all failed to hit and to wound rolls on the Bull Charge)
They have Great Weapons so they are S6 which great against heavily armoured opponents
3 Attacks Each and Unit Strength 3 along with Fear causing means it's possible to break units of up to 20 on the charge with only 4 Ironguts
- They are pretty expensive with a unit of 4 costing around 200 points
They have a low armour save which is easily removed
That's pretty much all I can think of but I would say the positives outweigh the negatives.
I think that they are by far worth putting into a non-ogre army as dogs of war. They are excellent against elitest infantry units that have a good armour save, (think grave guard, Saurus warriors or Chaos warriors) large infantry units (like empire swordsmen or Brettonian Men-at-Arms) or even heavy cavalry. (the Ironguts will have the same movement as most as the heavy cavalry when they take barding, and they will be able to negate that nasty armour save)
Thier one downside is shooting. Handgunners will negate thier minor armour and blow them appart fairly quickly. (for thier points value atleast)
If you are looking for numberous troops that are very simluar I would also reccommend Bulls
Okay, thanks! it help´s alot! =)
