Fantasy Army Chosen, finally!

As readers of the War Room know, I have been debating on starting up a new WHF army for several months now, pretty much since I first started hearing rumors of 8th edition. It was a difficult choice, and without further ado, the chosen army is:

Ogre Kingdoms Cover

Ogre Kingdoms

After intently looking at Ogre Kingdoms, Lizardmen, Tomb Kings, and Warriors of Chaos, I decided to go with Ogres. Why? They seem like they would be the funnest army to play. It seems like most people do not think they are a competitive army right now, but that is fine with me. It will take some time to get them assembled and painted, and by that time, 8th ed should be close to being released. With the rumors I have heard about 8th ed and the rumor that they are one of the next armies to get a new book, there is hope that they will become a competitive army.

I have already picked up an OK Battalion and will start getting the big guys assembled and painted, once I have finished my Ork Deffkoptas that are due in two days, that is. I am also planning on picking up a Tyrant and a Butcher.

If there are any OK generals out there that want to throw me some advice, please feel free to. It would be appreciated.

lol, you may want to spell that out, no one wants to claim to be just an 'OK general'.

An interesting choice of armies. There are not many who choose the Ogres, they are claimed to be uncompetitive. Until you meet a true ogre player, they love it. If you haven't seen already I would suggest the following blog:

Best of luck!
