    Ogres in mortals

    I started playing ogres recently, and wanted to experiment with them in my chaos army(1000 pt undivided). I don't know if they just got unlucky, or if they really aren't that good, but they got killed pretty badly. I used a unit of 6 bull ogres, and they got matched up with VC black knights. He got 5 wounds and i got about 2 and i failed leadership and ran away. He chased me down and i got pretty screwed by that(about 300 pts gone).

    I wanted some other opinions on it to see if i should continue using them.

    ogres aren't meant to take on heavily aroued units. They are troop munchers, lot's of attacks and -2 to armour save.

    Also, 6 is a pretty bad number. 4-8 in a unit, either you get a full frontage, or get a US of 24 and a rank.

    Did your opponent use his Killing Blow? Because it's not supposed to effect ogres.

    Black knights still have S6 or the charge, and a banner of barrows makes a quick work of anything.

    He didn't have a wight lord in it and he didn't use killing blow, and he used the banner that lets him hit on 3's. i had hand weapon and ironfists(used as a shield) with light armor.

    so if i took 4 of them(i only have one box) and made sure they didn't go up against any heavily armored units, they would be good?

    they would be IMO if you got to charge them in (most likely with a 12" charge) because you would dish out 12 attacks at strength 4 with those iron fists if you use them as hand weapons. Remember tho against a ranked unit they will likely have +5 comabt resolution, 3 ranks, standard and outnumbering. You still need to inflict at least 6 kills to win assuming none strike back. However yuo also have the 4 impact hits from the charge so you will probably do enough.
