Warhammer: Ogre Kingdoms 8th Ed out now!

Finally got to finish a new book! Clocking in at 136 pages, this version of Ogre Kingdoms adds a ton of new content compared to the 8th ed book, with a bunch of new units. I'd also like to give a big shoutout to Stefan Wolf who once again helped me out a great deal with both rules ideas and background for these new units, thanks a lot!

Note that this is only the 8th ed version, I'd like to get feedback on all bugs before I make the 9th ed version, which should be out within a week.


This update changes the following (compared to the RH list):

  • New Hero unit: Yeti Rimespeaker.
  • New Special unit: Rhinox War Chariot. 
  • New Special unit: Gnoblar Skewerslinger. 
  • New Special unit: Cragbeasts.
  • New Special Character: Jhared the Red.
  • New Special Character: Braugh Slavelord.
  • New Special Character: Groth Onefinger.
  • New Special Character: Ghark Ironskin. 
  • New Special Character: Morg Magmaborn.  
  • Greasus 395 pts.
  • Skrag 455 pts.
  • Golgfag 235 pts.
  • Bragg 175 pts.
  • Added Gnoblars upgrades for characters (including the new scalp-gnoblars and name-gnoblars).
  • Added Bicker to Gnoblars.
  • Added "Down to the Ironguts" to Ironguts.
  • Leadbelchers moved back to special, which fits better with their fluff.
  • Gave Ogres back LA by default to represent the gut plate (although they otherwise are unarmoured). 
  • Slaughtermasters may take a "Butcher's Cauldron" to aid in spellcasting.
  • Removed Head Honcho (who will be included in the Gnoblar Hordes list instead).
  • Big Names moved to a separate pool, added Daemonkiller.
  • Thundertusks may be taken as mounts for Hunters. 

Enjoy! Next month I hope to have the Tomb Kings book out, or at least updates for Bretonnia and Beastmen (which I have also been working on side-by-side with the OK book).

Coder/programmer needed!

I'm in need of some help in order to improve the menu of the blog to make it easier for people to access the various books, which will become more important as the project grows. With 32 army books about to be available, having a single drop-down menu would make it impossible to access all books on the screen as some would be cut out. As such, I'm in need of adding a multi-level menu instead. Unfortunately, despite my own attempts at doing this myself with the use of many guides online, none of the results have worked out, making the end result a jumbled mess. I therefore turn to my readers for help. Is there any one with programming skills who could spare an hour or so to help me fix this?

The code below should give you an idea of how I mean to implement it. Alas, while it looks fine when opening it directly in the web browser, trying to implement it into Blogger causes it to go haywire, and I have no idea how to fix it.

In case you need more information or source code, just shoot me an email and I'll get back to you.
