    Hello and thank you for clicking and reading. I am new to age of sigmar. Been collecting since June and playing once a week with a friend. He plays ogors with the beastclaw raiders thundertusk things. No matter what I do I just can’t seem to pin him down. Playing around the 1500 mark


    Any advice on what to add would be a massive help was thinks of getting a squad of razordons or salamanders not sure though. This is what what I have.

    Heroes
    Scar veteran on carnosaur
    Sunblood
    Skink starpriest
    Skink priest
    Slann Starmaster

    Battleline
    40 x Saurus warriors spears
    10 x Saurus warriors clubs
    10 x Saurus warriors clubs
    10 x Saurus knights lance

    Behemoths
    Basildon solar
    Trogladon

    Other units
    3 x ripperdactyls

    He tends to field:

    Tyrant
    butcher
    Huskard on thundertusk
    Leadbelchers
    Ogors
    Grots

    Thanks again. If Saurus was a bad move, I don’t mind getting a load of skinks. If this is the wrong place to put this I apologise.


    Kind regards

    Welcome!

    I am not very familiar with Ogors, but if I recall their abilities correctly I think Saurus are a bit slow to fight them. Skinks will have it much easier.
    Anything that can shoot well, move well, and has a lot of wounds will probably a good choice. Teleporting around might also help in that case.
    Perhaps a Shadowstrike fits into a 1.5k list...

    Your main problem there is the Huskard on thundertusk and those ranged mortal wounds.
    Deal with it asap, with teleport or shadowstrike, once it's down you can buff your bastiladon and send it in melee with the brutes.

    Each time I won Vs Ogors, was by keeping them busy with bastiladon and Skinks (Wary fighters is awesome for that) and scoring more objective points.
    It's a bit easier now with our teleport skills. A few Razordon might be cool as well

    Yeah, best is probably to not try and kill them, but to weaken them and keep them busy.
