    A butcher and some mournfangs will be just about 1k points.

    And after that, an Ironblaster, those things are destruction on wheels.
    For your 1.5k games, with some other stuff too.
    May the Dragon of Unhappiness never fly up your bottom.

    Sabertusks are probably the most important army piece for low point or high point games. I'd buy at least 4 and run them solo as redirectors / war machine hunters. 20ish points a piece, they are a no brainer.

    IMO, Mournfang Cavalry are just awesome. I run 4 in my 3k list (and did even at 2k) with the Dragonhide Banner. They just annihilate anything they can get a charge on! Equip them with Ironfists for that 2+ armour save and 6+ parry save.

    For a hero, I would buy a slaughtermaster. In lower point games you can run him as a Butcher but as you grow your list, you can run him as a Slaughtermaster (L4). Also, Firebellys are great! Ogre Magic really lacks the destruction that other lores provide. Mostly the lore of the great maw is buffs and such to make your troops better but doesn't really pack a punch from a distance. A Firebelly can help remedy this by giving you access to Fireball which will wreck regenerating monsters and other stuff. I run a Slaughtermaster, a Firebelly and a Bruiser BSB at 3000 points.

    Check my Frost Ogre Tribe link in my signature for a run down of my army. I believe it is very optimal for competition and I have a great record with it so far. Make sure you run your Sabertusks as loners. Meaning, 1 model per unit. With 4 of them, you can redirect and slow stuff down which will make sure your Ogres get the charge (which gives them a very large advantage in combat, especially Mournfangs). Also, slowing down your opponents troops will give your ranged stuff a chance to shine such as leadbelchers, ironblasters etc.

    ****Just in case you are new (I have no idea if you are) to fantasy, I suggest you study this technique - http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2012/...direction.html That will show you how to use those Sabertusks to their full potential. Make sure you read the comments from the people at the bottom, it goes into it a little more. 21 points for a redirector that has the statline of a Sabertusk is just stupidly good. They are probably the best redirector in the game of Warhammer with Chaos Warhounds probably being 2nd, and High Elves Eagles being third (these are great for redirecting because they can fly but they are a hefty 50 points a piece which is why I rank them 3rd). Also, having those tusks will allow you to out deploy your enemy during the special unit placement.

    *******Keep in mind that if your army points are under 3000 points you can only have a maximum of 3 sabertusks (assuming they are separate units, as you should run them). Once you hit 3000 points such as my Frost Tribe list, you can have up to 6 single sabertusk units. There are limits to duplicate choices.
