New ogryns/bullgryns- are they any use?
First of all: I find it rather odd that these two choices exist. From what I've seen, it seems to me that bullgryns can do everything better than ogryns and are not that much more expensive. They both specialise in protecting your units, being able to withstand more hits and charging in melee with brute strenght. Bullgryns are simply better in all this, so I don't really see any point in taking ogryns.
Do you think that there are some viable tactics concerning these two units? In any way I am very sceptic. It seems to me, that taking melee specialized units in guard isn't a very good idea. Any serious close combat oriented unit from other races, will simply wipe the floor with them and there goes a unit that could be replaced with a Leman Russ that has much more firepower.
Any opinions? Do you think there could be some use for them? With Priests maybe?
In my gaming group we found a use for them, which could be quite fun: you put bullgryns in front of a Leman Russ with camo and if I got the rules correctly, it should give the Leman Russ a 3+ cover in the open.
