The idea of the army is using the bulls to set traps for opposing units. I can use the small three man units to re-direct fast moving units towards the ironguts and maneaters. the yhetees are great for flanking and being able to go over all terrain with no penalty is amazing.

Tyrant is setup to get ahold of big nasties, Greater demons, STanks, Treemen, Giants and so on and so.

I use the BSB as a added combat modifier, and with the sword of might it gives him 4 Str 6 "magical" attacks to go after wraiths and those pesky slaan who always seem to be immune to mundane attacks.

and of course the best unit in the amry....the MANEATERS!!! These guys can be a real pain in the enemies side, 5 attacks at Str 5 in combat and 2 shots each in the shooting phase at Str 4, that have the range of Empire handguns with the rules for pistols.

But, they are Ogres and they will have problems against the top tier armies. they are some other things i could do to make the army a little better but i though i would play an army that doesnt completely use every tool in the book that is good.

This is of course i actually do the army.

I like the fact that you haven't used Skragg. I guess you could take 2 units of 3 Maneaters if you wanted to drop something.

Leadbelchers are ehhh. I used to play with 2 units of 2 and they did okay. The tenderiser is great with his high str of 7 and the fact that he has a lot of wounds, you can actually do something against big nasties. He also has magical attacks. I would really like to play with 9 yhetees but thats a bit much for the list idea.

I could have taken 2 units of 5 like i did when the book first came out, but again i wanted to not exploit the best units and goodies of the list. You know since we have been having all this talk of nice lists and to play lists that show off your tactics and generalship Laughing

Oh and on the Leadbelchers, you all know how i roll (well at least scooter does) i dont like the chance of rolling a misfire, which i used to do often.

I will take the 8 shots out of the maneaters. really good at clearing fast cav, and even hit skirmishers on a 4 normally.

I like the idea a lot joe. Its looks like something that I would probably design if I were to play orges. Good hard hitting units, flankers and baiting units. I think it has some good potential and should test your skills as a general.

Later,
