Start Collecting – Ogor Mawtribes

Peter & I have decided to look at the Start Collecting Boxes and what armies we can make out of them, what’s next and what could be taken to a tournament.

I got ‘lucky’, and immediately said I would do the Ogor Mawtribes on the basis that it’s destruction which I understand. Little did Peter realise it’s also the easiest to do!

Only 5 models, for £55- that’s expensive!

At £55 for 5 models it may seem like this is expensive, but wait until you see the Frostlord on Stonehorn kit. It can produce no fewer than 6 Warscrolls!

  • Frostlord on Stornhorn
  • Frostlord on Thundertusk
  • Huskard on Stonehorn
  • Huskard on Thundertusk
  • Stonehorn Beastriders
  • Thundertusk Beastriders

So, you’ve already got loads of choice when you pick up the box. The other benefit is that the Mournfang are Battleline… if you have a Beastclaw Riders General… which includes the four characters above. How convenient.

I would start with the big monster being a Frostlord on Stonehorn, it looks cool and is very survivable, and assemble the Mornfang with Gargant Hackers for the extra range.

What Next?

So when you’ve completed a start collecting box for these guys, what is next. Well, this is where it gets great – 2 more start collecting boxes!

An you have this:

Allegiance: Ogor Mawtribes
– Mawtribe: Boulderhead
– Grand Strategy: Beast Master
Leaders
Frostlord on Stonehorn (430)
 General
 Mount Trait: Metalcruncher
Frostlord on Stonehorn (430)
Huskard on Thundertusk (335)
 Chaintrap

Battleline
4 x Mournfang Pack (320)
4 x Mournfang Pack (320)
2 x Mournfang Pack (160)

Total: 1995 / 2000
Reinforced Units: 2 / 4
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 98
Drops: 6

You don’t have to paint them in white either… or red!

This is a great fun army… charge forward, kill stuff, fall back onto objectives, try to survive. Sure it’s not going 5-0 too often (or indeed not at all), but as an army for under £150 from your FLGS (£165 RRP) this will be the cheapest Age of Sigmar army you’ll ever buy.
