ogres with pikes sounds great.  I have some Chariot 15mm orcs  (MM) that may scale well for this, I'd ike
to see sensible Wm lists that reflect current WFB armies, but ring-fenced classic lists from back in The Day.

scrap launcher and mammoths  would be a fun additions.

True - there are some hideous hideous additions. The steampunk dwarves that have appeared absolutely make me shake my head.  The Empire laser beam wagon makes me grit my teeth.  But I think the Thundertusk and Gnoblar scrap launcher would be acceptable additions.

I agree with you on the Thundertusk and Scrap Launcher. Are there any trial rules available yet?

Maybe just use the rules of the Norse War Mammoth for the Ogre Kingdoms Thundertusk/Stonehorn?
And the rules of an Orc Rock Lobber for the Gnoblar Scrap Launcher?

Hi.  With the current kickstarter making it possible to make an OK army, what is everyone thinking of using the rules for Peasants for Gnoblers?  That way, Gnoblers don't count against the armies break point as the Ogres will ignore what happens to them.  Thoughts?

The reason why it is so is simple - ogres army is elite infantry army and therefore suffers of breakpoints lack. Pure ogre army is very hard to play and an adding of gnoblars units is only way to increase the breakpoints. And to keep the spirit of the army bkz I can't imagine ogres without their little servants.
