|1200pts of Ogre goodness|
As for my Ogres they were SO MUCH FUN to play!!! Yes I missed having my High Elf re-rolls, my Dwarfs L9/10 and WS3 was horrible all of the time but honestly watching Mournfang chomp through everything was just great. Impact hits (especially D3 impact hits), movement 6 or 8, multiple attacks and then stomp all backed by Lore of the Great Maw give you a fantastic combat army.
As for how each unit went during the day it was a mixed bag at times with the Mournfang a stand out.
Work well as units of 3 although and there were only a couple of occassions another few bodies would have made a difference.
Really hurt by their low AS when they are shot at but great in combat. Unfortunately they only managed that a few times - their main advantage seems to be the ability to take magical standards which with the Standard of Discipline gives them L9. But at 1200pts 5 of them gives you a solid punch and allows you to hide the BSB in the 2nd rank.
Helped me win my first two games by taking out enemy warmachines, reasonably Ok in close combat but without support it dies quickly. GNOBLAR POWER is not to be underestimated - he nearly wounded a Demigryph in Game 4!!!
As soon as finances allow it I am going onto Bitz Barn and grabbing two more of these guys so I can run two units of 3 as they are simply awesome. Pistols on Champion didnt offer anything in shooting but did offer an extra attack that really came in handy. Think these guys were responsible for 60%+ of all my VP from the tournament
Butcher & BSB
The Maw is a solid lore but I needed something else to help e.g. Ruby Ring, thinking a Firebelly would be better as the stock spell for that lore is very effective. However, that being said being able to put regeneration or +1S/T on units really helped. BSB's simply kit out worked perfectly and he didnt miss the WS I usually give him.
Club Mate performances
Reagan, Adam and Caleb from my local club also had a good time. Reagans first tournament experience gave him a couple of wins and Caleb picked up the Sportsmanship award which was great for him (and based on personal experience well deserved). Adam unfortunately didn’t have the results go his way (he also had to play against me and another Dwarf army which wasn’t the best draw for him) but he was his usual laugh a minute throughout the day particularly as we plotted to flood Pete’s next tournament with as many Dwarf armies as we could muster (at last count we had 10 available which would mean 40-50% of the field – boring but damn irritating for non-dwarf fans) - Pete as always is doing his best to hide his real feelings about Dwarfs
