I am having issues countering ogres as hover.
Scalpel are slightly slower and don't seem to out range them well enough.
I've tried using lances to support, but that just ends with a kodachi or blitz rush to take out my frail lances. If I add maces into the mix to defend the lances, it is a 1400 cost to defeat an 500 cost unit, which is not really countering them.
My next attempt would be to try and use halberd. I can have twice as many of them as my opponent has ogres. They are faster, but the splash damage and the range of the ogres may be too much for them.
Any advice on countering ogres as hover?
