Ogre Kingdoms

Every once in a while I get an itch to mess around with my Ogre Kingdoms again. I haven't been overly happy with them but they are my first army so I feel like I don't want to give up on them. To that end, I am considering making a handful of key purchases that would allow me to field a better, hopefully workable Ogre Kingdoms list in the future.

Current owned models:
24 Gnoblar Fighters
6 Ogre Bulls
4 Ironguts
2 Hunters w/ Sabretusks
30+ Gnoblar Scrappers
4 Leadbelchers
1 Gnoblar Scraplauncher
2 Butchers
3 Gorgers
1 Maneater
1 Tyrant/Bruiser

My current hope is to expand with a unit of yhetees in addition to several more units of gnoblar. And probably a handful of miscellaneous ogres. I will most likely purchase another battalion at some point as it is a great deal compared to the individual costs of the models and I could also use a handful of additional ogres.

This Saturday, I will be playing against a Skaven army. My current plan is to play a fun game with Ogre Kingdoms. Dust off these models that I haven't used in a while, and see if I can do a better job of playing them strategically than I did when I first started out with Warhammer.

Tentative army list (full list tomorrow):

2x Gorgers 150
3x 24 Gnoblar Fighters 144
3x 3 Ogre Bulls 315
2x Butchers 260
1x Hunter 145
1x Tyrant 200
1x Gnoblar Scraplauncher 165
2x 2 Leadbelchers 220
2x 10 Gnoblar Scrappers 120
1x 3 Yhetees 195

This gives me 336 points to work with for magical equipment and unit upgrades. I will obviously have to use some counts as models for this but it shouldn't be too bad.

  1. So convinced that Hunters are teh balls. I'm going to try to get my Ogres running too man, so that we can play some Ogre v Ogre games, and see if we can make them playable! Go team Ogre!
