My First Tournament?

Well, as I've stated, there's a tournament in less than a month. I'm going with or without an army. I wanna see what the competitive environment is like.

The tournament is 2250, so far my armies are:
Ogres (up to and including 3750 points)
Lizards (up to and including 2000 points)
and Goblins (about 750 points lol)

I promised myself I'd take time on the lizards and never do a rush job, so I think they're going to sit this one out.

Goblins... even on my best days, I don't think I can get 1500 worth of goblins painted in less than a month.

Ogres are ready, but aren't very competitive. I'm bidding on more Ironguts right now, so they COULD become more competitive. Reduce my Bulls to a minimal unit (they're required) and just mix bull models in ironguts units, and call em ironguts. That's my plan. Also, I'm buying a box of Leadbelchers for ONE leadbelcher, so I'll just convert the rest into even MORE ironguts. Thankfully all ogres use the same exact body, and all boxes come with more than enough arms and heads. :)

I think I'm gonna do that, paint up some more ogres for the tourney and take my time on Lizards, as planned, and work on goblins as well... after the tournament.

Here's the list I think I'm bringing:

Lord
Tyrant
Wyrdstone Necklace, Tenderizer, Heavy Armor, Luck Gnoblar

Hero
Butcher
Siegebreaker, Skullmantle

Bangstick, Power Stone

*UPDATE*
I just noticed that i made a 2500 army for a 2250 tournament. D'oh!
What I decided to do to fix that is cut IG units down to 3, since one down causes panic anyway... Probably drop the Bellowers. Cut the LB down to 3 units of 2 with no Bellowers, and perhaps drop the Scrap Launcher.
