Daily Episode 95 – Ogre Kingdoms Follow up with Tom Mawdsley

Ogre Kingdoms Follow UpOgre Kingdoms Follow Up

Tom Mawdsley joins me on today’s episodes to do an Ogre Kingdoms follow up from episode 60 where I talked about the sort of Ogre list that I would take to try and make them more fun, Tom took this list and tweeked it to fit his playstyle but tried to keep the spirit of the list.

When I talked about the sort of Ogre army I thought would be fun to play I tried to steer away from the Mournfang and Ironblasters that make an appearance in every army but I still went with a few good combos.  The biggest departure from the norm, other than the Stonehorns, was the fact that I included a Tyrant to lead the army instead of a Slaughtermaster.  I rounded off the list with 3 Stonehorns and that was the theme that Tom wanted to capture when writing his own Ogre army

 

What he came up with was this;

Slaughtermaster, Hell Heart

Hunter on Stonehorn, Charmed Shield, Dragon Bane Gem, Crown of Command

Bruiser BSB, Talisman of endurance, biting blade

9 Iron Guts, bellower, Standard Bearer, banner of swiftness

3 Ogres, extra hand weapon

2 Mournfang Cavalry, bellower, Ironfist

Tom tells us how he found the list over the course of the weekend and what plans he has for it in the future.

Daily Episode 87 – Top 5 Army Power Level

Army Power Level

Army Power Level

In this weeks Top 5 I talk about the order I would rate the Army Power Level assuming no comp.  I think choosing to go with no comp can make a huge difference to the way the lists line up and the reason I chose the armies that I did was due to the fact that not only are they hard as nails but they also have a few different builds that can compete for those places.

The Top 5

In 5th place I went for Vampire Counts.  The Deathstar or a big knight unit with multiple RedFury + Quickblood Vampires (or combos between the 2) is an amazingly powerful unit that can beat almost anything in the game.  They also have the option to fill the front rank of an infantry unit with a Vampire Lords that can easily do 7/8 wounds and a bunch or wraiths to do more damage all while having enough ranks to take away steadfast.

4th Place I went for Ogres.  They have a few different builds all very powerful.  Triple Mountfang units and 2 Ironblasters back up by Hellheart + the Death Fist (Greedy Fist and Death Magic) is a great list, but so is the huge Gutstar packed with characters and Ironguts.

3rd is the Dark Elves.  They have suffered recently due to comp hitting the combos that they need to take on the other power lists and the recent metagame changes but freeing them up with no comp allows the Coldone Deathstar to run riot, but also lets the mixed arms infantry list work to its best when backed up by a Power of Darkness and Sacrificial Dagger fuelled magic phase.  The mindrazor and Searing Doom cast with no cap on the number of dice makes a huge difference.

2nd was a very tough choice.  I was torn between the top 2 lists and in the end I chose Skaven.  They excel at beating elite armies and can really put the hurt on character powered deathstars, but also tear apart the superunits that you often see in no comp environments.  A single seer on a bell or double seer and double 13 are both fantastic options and the rare slots are just filled with great units.  All round the Skaven came very close to being my top choice

1st place went to the Lizardmen.  Party Slann, 100 skinks, terradons and sallamanders is a crazy list to deal with.  Almost every lore of magic can work with this army and the choce between 1 or 2 slanns is not all that clear cut.  Even the combat armies are super powerful,  The Lizardmen have it all and for that reason they are my top choice in the army power level top 5.
