I would enjoy to have things nicer on them, but honestly, the reason they cost as much as a termie is because the guard is not a CC force typically. As such, having a unit that provides that for us should be overpriced. That all being said, if you are going to adjust them, I would remove the conflict with Righteous Fury. As far as the armour save, number of attacks, and the ripper gun, those should remain the same.
Some other things to point out though...
-The Ogryn have a toughness of 5. So, the melta that insta kills termies, doesn't on Ogryns. Also, this makes it harder for weapons to inflict the wound in the first place (though a melta would still need the 2+ roll).
-The Ogryn comes with 3 wounds compared to the termies stock 1 wound.
-The Ogryn strikes in initiative order with his strength 5 versus the termies striking last with strength 8 stock.
-The Ogryn has Furious Charge and Suborn versus And they shall know no fear and Combat Tactics.
-Ripper gun versus Storm Bolter stock.
Main reason I defend the current version of the Ogryn is simply because they have always done exactly what I expected and have been worth their point for me. Just got to know how to deploy/utlize them. This is all dependent on your opponent, tactical ideas, and terrain layout.
