Ogryn are elite Imperial Guard units in Dark Crusade. They are essentially human slugga boyz: large, better at melee than ranged combat and able to soak up lots of damage. The key difference is numbers: Ogryn have a max squad size of 7 and a hardcap of 1.
They are produced at Infantry Command with the Ogryn Quarters upgrade.
- Heavy Infantry.
- Powerful melee attack.
- Strong ranged attack but highly inaccurate.
- Can take heavy punishment.

- Large size requires them to use two slots in transports and building garrisons.
Get them in close to deal with dedicated close combat units like Khorne Berzerkers.
