    What is the plan with the ogre units? You've got 2 decent sized units which is good, but I can't tell what the purpose of the small one is.
    How will they form up, 5x2 or 3x3+1?
    The Mournfangs and the Tusks are good at that point level, and 2 Ironblasters is possibly a little cheesy, but not excessively so since you don't have any other shooting in the list.
    Honestly, with all of a Butcher's buff spells, he's better off in a larger unit, with more ogres getting the benefit.
    Adding up the points you've given, you're at about 1465, but rebuilding myself, the list my points have you at 1548.

    I would almost try this list, it keeps the same essential feel of the list (at the cost of the small ogre unit) and leave you with 60 points to spend on items for the Butcher and Bruiser, and possibly a standard for the Mournfangs (I'd go Gleaming Pennant if you do)

    Butcher @ 138.0 pts (General)
    Level 2 Upgrade; Ironfist; Lore of the Great Maw

    Bruiser (Battle Standard Bearer) @ 138.0 pts
    Ironfist; Heavy Armour

    8 Ogres @ 276.0 pts
    Bellower; Standard Bearer; Ironfist

    8 Ogres @ 276.0 pts
    Bellower; Standard Bearer; Ironfist

    3 Ogre Mournfang Cavalry @ 230.0 pts
    Bellower; Standard; Ironfist; Heavy Armour

    1 Sabretusk
    1 Sabretusk

    1 Ironblaster
    1 Ironblaster

    Total Roster Cost: 1440.0

    Thanks for advice, my Idea for the small unit was to run with the Butcher so when he eventually miscasts he only takes a small squad with him. But I like your list far better, I can see how much better it could work. Not sure about points did it on Battle scribe will check it.

    I've got the latest version of Battlescribe on my tablet, and it has a few problems, primarily with things like Ironfists, but it's not the only one.
    I use Army Builder by LoneWolf to do my lists.
