I have always pondered on what army I would collect if I was going to get into Mantic’s Kings of War and while Dwarfs were a possibility I just don’t like the models. The Ogres on the other hand; now that is an army I can get behind. Making my resolve all the weaker they’ve added the awesome Ogre Berserker Braves and Ogre Warlock to their ranks…
Calling on shamanistic powers the Ogre Warlocks are uncommon in the tribes but are incredibly potent spellcasters all the same. I think they’ve got this model looking just right and the flames in his hands don’t look stupid which is one of thing that plagues other models which do this.
I like that he doesn’t have the bulk that the other Ogres do either since he isn’t a pure fighter instead attending to his duties from further back on the battlefield.
Adding to this frankly awesome army they also have the Berserker Braves. More compact, like a coiled spring ready to strike, these warriors are the youngsters of the tribe and while they might not have experience they are deadly none-the-less.
I think it is the aesthetic choice that I like best about the Ogres with their almost Warcraft Orc look to them. It’s hard not to like the army since I don’t think they’ve got a dud model across the range.
Do you play Ogres in Kings Of War?
