I have an upcoming battle, in a few weeks, against an Ogre Kingdoms friend. We will probably play between 1500 and 2000 points. This friend of mine who i will be playing really needs to be humbled. I would love to table him or at least get a mas.
I know that the Ogres are one of the weakest armies out there but I want to be sure I have good units and heros to really pack on the hurt. I have never played Ogres before and haven't even seem them in action.
Any help or ideas would be awesome!!!
Shooting will be your friend. There aren't really any heavily armored units in Ogres, and regular shooting is a reliable way of taking them down.
I fought them once when i was quite new with TK. Their s3 shots, even with poison, didn't do to much. But he had absurd rolls to save. 5+ armor and he saved well over half.
What will make our shooting exceptionally good is the s4 shots.
Would Starfire Arrows with Bow of Loren be worth the investment??
Ehhh not really.
there are better items out there you can buy.
as was previously said shooting wrecks ogres pretty good.
Also any great weapon wielding alter you have toting around will whip them into shape. (just try to hit a flank you dont want attacks back)
The Spirit sword can be used pretty nicely here. Multi-wound creatures with about 7-8 leader ship on your ld10 highborn. You do have a chance of taking some wounds yourself but according to the laws of probability you should do most of the hurting.
Hail of Doom Arrow is all I would take against Ogre Kingdoms. Shoot them to ribbons. Don't deploy too far out, they move fast. March block early. Eagles, glade riders. Redirect. Hit flanks of thinned down units with dryads/dancers/wild riders.
Don't take unit champs as you can get lured into challenges you don't want to be in.
LOTS of shooting, force panic tests.
