Hah!

I got a deal on 3 Ironblasters/Scraplaunchers. Is there any good Mawtribes builds using either of those units? Wasn't sure about the subfactions and battalions or even if any of those would make that unit viable. I can always use them to make Legion of Azgorh stuff (make great magma cannons!)

What sort of Ogor units do you already have?

Underguts with Tyrant's Gutguard (reduces deployment drops and you need the extra artifact & cp for this builld) with the Tyrant having the Gruesome Trophy Rack artifact (it affects ranged attacks too) and 4 Ironblasters within 12"; use the Underguts command ability and it is 8 shots with +1 to hit heroes/monsters rend -2 d6 damage. Snipe all the enemy monsters & heroes then mop up whatever is left. Added bonus is the Gutguard battalion lets you have a unit of Ironguts intercept wounds for the Tyrant, you won't want to camp them nearby every game but if the enemy has strong sniping ability themselves it pays off to keep the Tyrant alive.

What is extra nice is this build actually stands a -shot- against Coalesced Seraphon, which most Ogor armies do not.

Edit--Corrected, thanks Stux!

I believe you're thinking Underguts, but aside from that all of it applies.

I run 4 Ironblasters in Underguts with the Tyrant and Trophy Rack and it's very nice.

Cool! Maybe I’ll get the battletome then. Sounds like a more viable army than legion of Azgorh. I have no other Ogors at the moment but have been considering getting back into destruction. Seems like Ogors and Sons of Behemat might get along once they come out too.

TBF, almost everything is more viable than Legion of Azgorh.

Tis true, however I'm still gonna kitbash another 3 Skullcrackers and use them while they still have rules. Maybe I can magnetize the Sky Titan cannon bits for Ogor purposes too. Without them they could also be Gorebeast Chariots. Such versatility with those Ironblaster kits!

It is a pretty great kit.

Is there a consensus on Huskard's using more than one prayer? The data sheet states that only one of the two listed can be selected, but then another can be added from the army prayer list. I always thought it was just one and done, but I recently saw a battle report where the player used one from the data sheet and one that was selected. Thoughts?

The prayer granted by allegiance can be performed in addition to what is normally allowed by the warscroll, this is detailed in the first page of allegiance abilities (instead of with the list of prayers) making it easy to miss.

Many thanks! That does make the Huskard slightly better to me, but it still needs a huge points drop to be viable. All Thundertusks need to drop by some points for them to be viable. The delicate balancing act though, is not making them so cheap that the Thundertusk Beastriders become overpowered. Maybe 40 to 60 points would be enough to make them viable without making them stupidly good?

It depends on where you put the bar of how powerful armies should be. Are we bringing things up to match stronger armies, or bringing stronger armies down to match average ones? Where that bar goes makes all the difference in the world as to what points need to go up or down.
