Default What to do with Ogres

So it appears they obviously need a make over. I've just dusted off my old ogre models which I'm beginning to sort out but I was wondering what everyone thinks should be included, updated, redesigned etc etc when the Ogre army book eventually comes out?

Better magic!!! They dont have too much going for them there. also need some new plastics, having one kit that alters around for all our main units is kinda lame.

Something to Counteract killing blow. I've seen Khorne Demons rip through half a ogre army because of that.

I hope they get some finecast models at least. Gut magic really needs sorted especially with this new expansion.

They also need to have more special characters Skarag is ok but who wants to use the Overtyrant he looks stupid imo and not to be used on the battlefield. Need a big mean tyrant.

Overtyrant looks like he's not seen a battlefield in years, and couldn't raise himself to waddle to one if he wanted to. Most of all, I think the Ogres need a way to protect their numbers from being too readily thinned. Search116 mentioned Killing Blows for one. Magic *cough*purplesun*cough* is another that will eat through the Ogres' limited numbers far too unchecked at the moment.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Luckily Ogres are immune to killing blow as they're monsterous infantry unfortunately they die in droves to anything that requires a characteristic test as their basic stats are piss poor.
Hopefully the new book will drop the dogs of war rule that drove up the cost of the models to make them almost unplayable.
When GW did the first OK book it seemed as if they really didn't want to upset anyone with the armylist meaning it was underpowered and only worth taking as mercenaries where the high cost was ofset by the fact that it covered a weakness in it's allied army.
Some armour would be nice and less self destructive leadbelchers if we're wishlisting.

IIRC, Ogres aren't stubborn. They need this. and probably and extra pip of leadership as well. A points reduction across the board, and then some form of magic defense is in order (something along the lines of the Lizardmen Becalming Cogitation, or alternatively the ability to knick PD a la dwarfs/high elves). An improvement to bull charge wouldn't go astray, or alternatively simply drop bull charge in favour of points reduction.
