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.

My First Solo Game of AoS

So those who have seen my previous articles on Solo Wargaming in the Age of Sigmar will know that I’m developing a card draw system to determine an armies movements and actions on the tabletop. This will allow people to play against an automated army, which is especially good if you can’t find regular opponents or you want to test our your army lists.

Pre-Game

The battleplan played was Savage Gains, deployment for the AI units was based on the card shown above. This resulted in a strong right and left flank for the ogors with only the Icebrow Hunter holding the centre objective. To counter this I placed my Gunhaulers and one of the Frigates with the Endrinmaster in the centre (hoping to be able to counter any opening moves from the Ogors).

Deployment

Kharadron Turn 1

Choosing the Battle Tactic Aggressive Expansion, I started strong with a Frigate moving up my left to claim the left hand objective and a Gunhauler and my other Frigate moving t the right objective. The Frigate on the left managed to get lucky with its sky cannon and completely removed the Frost Sabres turning them into red mist.

Ogors Turn 1

The Ogors drew a tactic card at random and received Ferocious Advance. Following the instructions on the card, the Icebrow Hunter was chosen as unit one while the nearby mournfangs and the Huskard were units two and three respectively.

I then drew cards for each of the AI units and followed their instructions. Unfortunately the three units didn’t quite make it to within three inches of each other and so the Ogors failed the Battle Tactic for that round. The other Mournfang units circled the trees on the right heading for their right hand objective. Luckily for the Ogors they were able to get one of these units within 6″ and so contested the right with my Frigate and Gunhauler. No battle tactic for me after all!

Kharadron Turn 2

Feeling buoyed after the early lead and removing the Sabre Tooth’s I chose the Conquer Battle Tactic, thinking that I could wrestle objective from the hands of the Mournfang.

The Frigate on my right turned to try and take some shots at the Huskard but didn’t hit a single time. The Frigate and the Gunhauler didn’t fair too much better and only removed a single Mournfang meaning that the Ogors still contested the Kharadron left.

Ogors Turn 2

This time the Ogors drew Aggressive Expansion. Both of the objective markers would be the left and right side objectives. I felt fairly confident that the Ogors couldn’t shift my forces this turn.

The Ogors advance and charged and unleashed a world of paint on my poor sky ships! They utterly destroyed the Gunhauler on the right and scored multiple wounds on both Frigates. The only saving grace for me was that as the Ogors are an aggessive army, the Mournfang failed its check to remain near the objective in the centre and instead chose to charge after the Gunhauler on the right.

Ogor Turn 3

With the Ogors winning the initiative, they drew Slay the Warlord as their Battle Tactic.

Advertisements

This turned out very well for them, all the Mournfang Cavalry charged the Frigate on their right and utterly destroyed it and the poor Endrinmaster sat inside! While the Huskard then decide to reduce the other Frigate to a pile of metal. Tactic Achieved, and this only left me a single Gunhauler to mount any defence with. I had little option but to concede the game to the A.I.

Conclusion

The cards worked really well, so well that the A.I. beat me to a pulp and if I had carried on I have no doubt that I would have been tabled eventually. I’m happy with the cards, there are some minor changes I would like to make to some of the wording here and there, but overall a very successful first test.

I’d like to take the opportunity to all those who are helping me playtest this system and feeing their comments back to me:
