Hiya

I have a doubt guys. Which are really the maximum characteristics of the ogres?

This one from the Mordheim Rules Review:
OGRE (Ogre Bodyguard Hired Sword)

M WS BS S T W I A Ld

6 6 5 5 5 5 6 5 9

or this from ostlanders and pit fighters warbands:

M WS BS S T W I A Ld

6 5 4 6 6 4 5 4 7

I don't understand why the profiles are different if it is the same race scratch

Greetings

Speaking of Ogre maximum characteristics... I noticed a discrepancy in BTB (Pg 163), the stats are on the left as compared to those on the right (from the Main Rulebook):

M 6 6
WS 6 6
BS 4 5
S 5 5
T 5 5
W 5 5
I 4 6
A 5 5
Ld 9 9

Was this intentional or a typo?

Clearly they're just a slower Ogre, then the wyrd-stone infused ones of Mordheim is all. Smile

The stats in the Mordheim book are based upon the old WFB statline. The BTB stats are based on the statline presented in the Ogre Kingdoms book which is used as the more modern WFB base statline for ogres.

Background wise, I suspect the stats were chosen as a way to differentiate the 2 common ogre types (Imperial or Ogre Kingdoms), as well as fitting the location better.

You may ignore the maximum characteristics for Ballistic Skill & Initiative in the BTB download. These are what you would see if the game itself were being re-released, but it isn't.
