    Ok, first off, I've never played Ogres. I do however play them regularly so might be of some help (seeing as this board is fairly dead any response is better than none). So, here goes....


    Characters...
    I think you might be better off with a Slaughter Master and a BSB. In regards to magic you have the same number of levels but you're getting an extra +2 to cast/dispel. The loss of the Tyrant wont make much of an impact as the re-rolls to LD from the BSB is far better than the LD9 the tyrant brings. The killing power between the two aren't that huge anyway. You can always put the Banner of Discipline on the Slaughter Masters unit to bump him up to LD9 anyway. Lastly, you can't take 2 dispel scrolls any more.

    Ogre units...
    These are a bit small really. 5/6 Iron guts don't really scare me at all. 8 should really be the minimum for a main fighty unit I reckon (I may be wrong though!). Small units never last long against my Orcs/Chaos. Personally, I'd go for units of 8-12 Iron guts and forget about Bulls as str4 doesn't kill anything. I hear units of 3 bulls can be handy for chaff though.
