Welcome to Librarium Online!
Let me start by saying that this is an intentionally fluffy list in regards to the heroes. I know the exalted is not the most ideal build but this is a friendly so I'm more concerned with having fun as opposed to straight up winning. My real question is my special choices, I can take six trolls or six decked out ogres. I haven't actually made up my mind on which I would rather. I've heard good things about trolls and not so good things about ogres. In the end I might just try both builds and see which one I like the best. So if you had to choose which would it be? Or would you dump both for something else?

I just bought my wife a mini-van, the gods of Chaos have nothing on reality.
Ogres are nowhere near as good as they look on paper. Same strength as warriors, but half the weaponskill, makes them pretty useless. I've had a 6 ogre unit with ahw, mok and armor, struggle to chop through clanrats. Go Trolls or go Warriors with ahw and mok, both will be more effective.

Ogres are basically your S6 option for a Warriors army. They have a low initiative, so you're not wasting anything by giving them Greatweapons. I'd spring for Chaos Armor because they are going to get hit, and they're not particularly resilient. MoK is nice, but don't underestimate MoN when you're WS is that horribly low. You'll be hitting most guys on a 4 still, Elves on a 5 (we're a bit spoiled by hitting nearly everyone on 3's with Warriors) so you're not going to be doing that bad. Remember that you get Monstrous Support, so you'll get 3 attacks from the guys standing behind your original 6, and your front rank does get Stomp. At the end of the day, 6 Ogres with GWs and MoK are going to rock forward 30S6 + 3S4 attacks. If you keep Shadows around to knock out enemy WS, you might get a few more kills than you would with a similarly equipped block of Warriors. Furthermore, they "erode" better than those Warriors- 1 wound on a block of Ogres doesn't mean -1 attack and lose a rank bonus, it means that you've still got 2 wounds before you even pull a model.
With Trolls, I like them, but not as a Special Choice. Toss Throgg into the mix, drop the unit down to 5, and use them as a Core choice. If you wanted, you could even drop a block of Warriors and try boosting the Trolls to Horde Status. Never ever laugh off the ability to Horde up a regiment of Monsters. 18 of them is downright hilarious, 42S5 + 6S5 attacks.
Trolls are just Awesome.
