Title says it all, which do you prefer and why? I myself have 6 Trolls but am leaning towards Ogres because you can give them chaos armour and great weapons. Anyhoo, what's your opinion on both?
Also, I'd planned on posting a poll, but didn't know how. Anyone know?
well im a big fan of trolls for my goblins, where they stand out with their S5 that can be used to penetrate armour saves. In this army i think their vomit choice makes them about as strong as ogres, with the regeneration on top. And the roll on eye of gods is really appealling because you can use it to scare the opponent out of shooting at them if you wish.
Other than that i dont actually have ogre models xD

Yeah, people tend to ignore them or focus all firepower on them. But it only takes 1 failed stupidity check to lose you a game. And it happens all too often.
IF I had to decide between the 2, it'd be ogres. They're relatively cheap, customizable and can tear apart certain units with ease. WS3 is still a big fail in my book though.
Pretty new to the game and I was talked into buying ogres by the store staff. They were decent for fast infantry (guarded my flank) but believe it or not eventually got owned by a squad of skaven slaves! I proxied trolls in the next game but they were baited and ultimately ambled off the battledfield due to failed stupidity rolls. I'm erring toward just playing a Shaggoth!
I'm thinking of getting myself a shaggoth and a few Ogres as well, so I'll tell you how that goes. Something tells me the Shaggoth is going to be a fire-magnet, but that's the point!
I've played a shaggoth twice in 8th. Both games he dominated a flank. I went extra handweapon. I always complained the +1str -1 armor they changed the shaggoth too was a step backwards and while I'd love to have my 3+ armor save back, str6 thunderstomp is brutal.
I chose Ogres because of their lack of stupidity. They can also be given a mark, so if they are marked knorne with an additional hand weapon.... it makes up for their low weapon skill.
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
Got to be trolls for me. As long as they operate in close proximity to you general, low Ld with stupidity sucks, but a BSB and general can make that feel like it's dissapeared.
Not really customisable but they can either deal out plenty of S5 attacks to smoosh through small infantry OR troll vomit to muller high armour/ethereal/etc enemies so they can be a little more flexible.
if your general is on a disc swooshing around [big favourite atm] probably best stick to the Ogres, if you have no Ld buffs, you are likely to fail 2/3rds of your stupidity rolls.
Like all things, peaks and troughs
I must say I like Trolls too.
The Mutant Regen is just awesome, which makes even getting attacked exciting. As Davidian says, str.5 is very nice, especially with Stomp.
Don't forget Stupidity also makes you immune to psychology - they are too dumb to feel any terror at all, let alone panic.
And vomit is just plain fun.

Can you vomit on ethereal creatures???
