Looks like a well rounded MSU ogres list, altough I'd like to see a dispel scroll or 2 spread among the butchers. A Gorger or two make great harassing/warmachine hunter units if they show up early enough, but I dunno what you'd swap out for those.

personally I'd take out the bloodcleaver, skullplucker, greedy fist and put in some dispel scrolls. see if you can put your leadbelchers into 2x2 units and perhaps put a brace of handguns on each of the maneaters and tyrant so you have some stand and shoot reaction ability if they get charged instead of the other way around

I originally had a dispell scroll on each butcher. Since I'm modelling on the gear on the models, I figured I'd roll with it this way for a few games, and then I could always swap the points for the scrolls later.

Gorgers were also in my original draft, and may well be, once I actually get some Gorger models I'd likely have to sacrifice the 4th Iron Guts squad, or the Leadbelcher's, to filed them.

The hangguns were and interesting idea, but I don't it's worth sacrificing the GreatWeapons to do so.

you get the brace on top of the great weapons!

the magic wpns you picked aren't nessessarily good enough to justify spending points on in a 2000 pt game

*Each Maneater may replace his Ogre club with a Cathayan longsword (+6 points), a great weapon (+6), or a brace of handguns (+6 points).


I do belive that's either or, not both.

As I posted in your plog, nice list I like. To summarize my changes:

- Swap blood cleaver for dispel scroll
- Drop greedy fist (illegal)
- Drop leadbelchers to 2 w/ bellower
- Buy gorger

Then, sweet models happen, faces are beaten, job's a good'un.

- Salvage

Maneater Body Guard (x2) 180pts Heavy Armor, Great Weapons

Shooty Butcher 180pts Bangstick, Blood Cleaver
Irongut Bodyguard (x3) 154 w/bellower

Scarey Butcher 180pts SkullMantle, Siegebreaker

--------------------------

I really want to see how much damage I can inflict with the Leadbelchers before I sacrifice one.

That, and I don't own a Gorger yet I'm contemplating holding off and buying 6 of them and Skrag for the jump to 3000pts
