I just carefully re read the FAQ
for Ogres and their Army Book and noted one thing I had missed earlier after all this time.
Page 60 says to REPLACE the third paragraph with the FAQ
piece that says
Change the third paragraph to “Butchers and Slaughtermasters
channel and cast spells in the normal manner. A Butcher counts
as a Level 2 Wizard, and a Slaughtermaster as a Level 4
Wizard.” Ignore the fifth paragraph.
So does that mean that Ogre Butchers and Slaughtermasters are no longer bound by the "may only use 2 dice or 3 dice" rule to cast spells?
This whole time I had been limiting my Butcher to two dice and my opponent was easily dispelling everything
Also we can stack Gut Magic buffs over the turns since technically Gut Magic is NOT categorized as remains in play correct? (reference: http://www.ogrestronghold.com/forum/index.php?topic=19007.0
So in one turn I could do +1 str
, then next turn +1 STR
on the same unit etc etc (just not in the same turn because you can only cast each spell once)
