Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi there, im just starting an Orcs and Goblins army, and i wanted it to be themed so i came up with the idea that my Orcs (and gobbos) would be from the Mountains of Mourn, at war with the Ogre tribes etc. So far ive converted my rock lobba to have a slave ogre loader, my goblin units are half and half common goblins and gnoblars and alot of my orcs have snow coloured fur on them. The point of this post is, Im currently stuck for ideas for more themed units for the army, im not bothered about winning with it, and i tend to go for funny conversions, so i was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what else i could add to my army and how to convert them to make them more....Ogre Kingdom-ish
Thanks in advance
You could consider adding Ogres as dogs of war, and convert them to look enslaved or treacherous. And gnoblars could be used for various other goblin roles, don't think they're excluded to foot troops.
Is orc tribe is at war with the ogres. I don't see them sending help over to the other side ^_^Originally Posted by Khorne Lord
You can use ogre bulls weapons, the crude swords and clubs make wonderful weapons for orcs.
A Giant with some ogre trophees could be an intimidating sight, especially in front of a slave giant !
That's why I said converted to look enslaved. The orcs picked em up after a fight and in a stroke of genius decided not to eat them.Is orc tribe is at war with the ogres. I don't see them sending help over to the other side
well ya could grab some orgre tyrants chain em and use the troll rules to represent them, theswords as already stated make good orc weapons, noblars could be fitted partially to chariots maybe tie a couple to the tusks of a boar or to the scythes maybe replace the ammo on a doom diver with noblars?

I like the idea of using the gnoblars as doomdiver ammunition. It's the most abusive role of the goblin in an orc army, so naturally passing it on to their Mountain of Mourn cousins is the perfect course of action.Originally Posted by Plague_00
Thanks for the replys, Im definately going to have some slaveogres as dogs of war, and going to have gnoblars on my doom diver, i can't see goblins doing something like that when theres someone lower down the food chain to do it for them. =)
If your conversion skills are up to it, you can also consider giving some of the orcs oriental moustaches, since the Mountains of Mourn have a Mongolian theme. Any way to theme them to appear Mongolian would probably contribute.
Orcs with mustaches?! definetely a new idea.Originally Posted by Khorne Lord
Mmmmm...Snotlings... good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!!
a very difficult be amazingly reward conversion: make your warboss' weapon a large chain with a gnoblar attached and have him swinging it over his head. This is best attempted on a mounted model while the boar leaning to a side to accomedate a flying stand where the gnoblar may be glued.
da boyz could have an ogre head or sumthin on their standard, boar boys would could simply have gnoblars implaed on their mount's tusks.
The doom driver......bout time gobbos stopped serving as ammo eh ?
Chariots could have random ogre kingdom parts ledged into their wheels and spears.
the ideas for using enslaved ogres as DOW and trolls are great.
