Gearing up for Ogre Kingdoms Release

By now you have probably heard that the new WHFB Ogre Kingdoms book will be released this week and I am very excited about it. My ogres are so ready for it. I have been following the rumors on the Internet, especially over at the Ogre Stronghold forums, for the past few weeks about what the new book has and I think I have a pretty good idea of what to expect. With that in mind, I have taken inventory of what I have so that I can start planning some lists when the book comes out. Here is what I currently have.
  • Lords & Heroes
    • Tyrant with Great Weapon
    • Butcher
    • Bruiser with Brace of Pistols
    • Hunter & 2 Sabertusks
  • Core
    • 8 Ogres with Iron Fists & full command
    • 8 Ironguts with full command
    • 48 Gnoblar Fighters & 10 Trappers
  • Special
    • 8 Leadbelchers
    • 3 Yhetees
    • 4 Maneaters (Female, Pirate, Paymaster, Araby)
    • 2 Gorgers
  • Rare
    • 3 Rhinox Riders
    • Slave Giant
I will most likely be using the Rhinox Riders as Mournfang Cavalry at least until Forge World releases rules for them. As for what I have that I still need to build.
  • Slaughtermaster
  • Battle Standard Bearer
  • 6-8 Ogres
I am waiting on building the Ogres (I miss calling them Bulls) until the book comes out to see how to equip them.

As for what I am planning on buying for the new release, I definately want both a Stonehorn and a Thundertusk. I will probably be picking up an Ironblaster and a Scraplauncher. I really should get the two Maneaters I am missing (Ninja and Imperial) as that will give me a unit of six (Maneaters are a Special choice now and are really good from what I hear). I also want a Firebelly. That will probably be more than enough stuff to keep me busy for a while.
