    Ironfists

    It says the ogre club bonus is lost when combining it with any other weapon including an ironfist but it is not entirely clear, if i choose to use my ironfists as shields will i gain the bonus for ogre clubs?

    Either way, you loose the bonus. Just consider the club to be 2handed for the purpose of it's ability, and a mundane hand weapon in any other cases.

    I did not say it is 2 handed. I said think of it as a 2 handed weapon. An ogres who swings with it 2 handed gets the armour piercing effect. But single handedly, he doesn't get enough momentum to do so, this is how GW designed the weapon to be.

    Now the ironguts have a great weapon, wich is totally something else. They gain +2 strength, and can only be used as a 2 handed weapon, this makes to club more versatile.

    Fluff wise, i tihnk that since the ogre tries to save as much blood and meat as possible on the victim, he must know precisly where to hit the opponents armor to kill the victim with internal bleeding as opposed to Ironguts, who mainly just smash the enemy to a pulp. When an ogre bull uses an ironfist, he pierces the armor witht he sharp edge and therefore blood is lost. That is how i tinhk of it fluff wise.


    And to answer your question, if an ogre club was used 2 handed, then it would probably be just armor pireceing. The ogre club isn't large enough to get enough ogre wieght behind it to become stronger.
