Ogre Kingdoms Tactics: Thoughts on my Tournament List


So you may remember a few weeks back, my friend challenged me to come up with the nastiest list that I could, which led to me writing an article about it.  I've played quite a few games with it since then, and revised the list a bit to maximize it's killing potential.

Slaughtermaster: Level 4, Lore of Death, Armor of Silvered Steel, Greedy Fist, Channeling Staff, Great Weapon

Butcher: Level 2, Lore of the Great Maw, Hellheart, Great Weapon Bruiser: BSB, Deathcheater, Runemaw, Heavy Armor, Iron Fist

15 Ironguts: Full Command, Lookout Gnoblar, Standard of Discipline

4 Mournfang Cavalry: Full Command, Heavy Armor, Iron Fists, Dragonhide Banner 1 Sabretusk 1 Sabretusk

Ironblaster Ironblaster Stonehorn

Total: 2,494

After testing this, I haven't found any opponents so far that really can handle it well.  The last game I played against was an Empire Gunline with 3 cannons, a volley gun, steam tank and pope mobile, but I still managed to pull out a victory, despite having a large chunk of my army shot to pieces before I ever got to his lines.  In general, I've found that the Runemaw, combined with not having many other viable targets for big spells, has produced a unit that is down right devastating.  Now, if you manage to get Troll guts on top of that (roughly a 44% chance with a level 2), then you're really going to hurt some heads.
