Ok, so we were having a battle earlier today, and there were three teams, but only two are relevant to the question. The ogres, and the undead. The undead player had a spell that allowed him to zombify dead heroes. The ogre player lost a hero, and it says that his guys get to eat their dead. Who gets priority on the dead? I'd sort of been reading the rules more conservatively, with dead undead heroes being buried, rather than zombified, and the ogre rule also states that he gets any heroes he kills, which seems fair to say that he stole it from the undead. However, in a situation like this, who gets the hero? Does the ogre get it, because his special ability says he gets to eat it? Or does the undead player get it because its one of his spells?

We ended up determining that both players get it, because the carcass is large, but in the case that a hero that the ogres did not kill is slain, who would get it?

Hmm, on which page of the ogre rules is stated that they eat their dead?

Are you using the Btb rules?

I only find in these rules that they may eat their comrades to gain experience but not that they eat their dead comrades in general.

I would say the undead get their ogre zombie ( which is really evil).

But maybe i overlooked the section in the rules.

We had a player with an Undead Centigor after the first game. Halfway through, he stole my Vampire. Unless consolation is that he was unarmed at the time, so he had a powerful S5 T5 monster running around with one dagger.


In this situation, you both have a fair claim. I say roll off to see who found the body first.

The thing is, when a roll-off was suggested, the ogre player didn't want to roll for it, stating that "Its my guy, and I get him." He claimed that, since the wounded were removed from the field upon routing, the dead must have been too.

And I suppose that it also says explicitly that dead heroes must have been killed in hand to hand combat with an ogre. So that settles that specifically. Also the ogre was a runt who hadn't leveled yet and was poorly-armed. Better than nothing.
