So the new dragon ogres are pretty awesome and have some massively destructive potential and I still cant decide whether extra hand weapons or great weapons would be best. Whilst mulling this over I thought what would make them more deadly, and thought a mark of khorne would be nice but seen as they cant be marked is there another way to frenzy them? I might try adding an Exalted battle standard bearer on a chaos steed with a flail and Banner of Rage. So in a unit of 4 dragon ogres there is a potential 17 WS4 STR7 attacks (I would take a champ!) or 21 STR5 attacks not included the exalted's 5 WS7 STR7 attacks (flail!) Its an expensive unit that would suffer from the downside of frenzy but should it hit anything...
I had the same idea, it might be useful to put the EC on a jugger, becuase of the magic resistance and extra protection. Great weapons would be more useful than extra hand weapons, since then they can take on the hardest units out there. You could also try following it with a warshrine or two, that would make the unit incredibly awesome, though it might make the unit very expensive.
And if you don't take a jugger, give the BSB the MoN, it will really help in combat.
Wow thats a nice unit build there of dragon ogres. The only thing I would worry about with a unit of those guys is how many you can actually fit into combat - all four dragon ogres and an Exalted should be too wide for 5 25mm ranked up units.
Good point - they are on 40mm base - I kept thinking 50mm for some reason. Course dwarves, elves, dark elves, wood elves, etc all have 20mm, (185mm vice 100mm).
I just can't get over the points cost though - for 1 Dragon Ogre with GW, your already looking at 2 chaos knights, not even counting the marks. Sure you get 2 extra wounds, same movement, less WS, little stronger depending on if they take a lance or magic weapon, lot less armor save.
Maybe if it was a 3000 pt game or so I'd look at taking them - 2000 pts or so - I'll stick with the knights.
Don't they still have their ''Immune to Lightning -> Gain Frenzy'' rule? In which case, just find a way to deliver a quick shock and let the destruction begin!
PS, id say go with GWs
hmm, don't have by rules with me, but would it be possible to zap you own unit with a friendly lightning bolt? I can't remember if Chaos Sorc's have access to them, or wether you can cast offensive spells on your own unit, but it would be pretty cool to pull off.
Maybe get that one free spell magic item and put it on an Exalted Hero nearby...
