So how much more does a Troll eat in comparison with an Ogre? as a side question, has it ever been defined if Trolls are bigger than Ogres (based in WFB stats I would say no)?
It is a bit silly but I asked this myself when reading Gathering the Storm. In warhammer 3 they have "defined" that and Ogre in game terms must eat 1 pound of meet every hour, which makes 24 pounds of meet per day. Then in Gathering the Storm pg 48 you can read
"The troll glutted itself on all the food in the pantry. Within a day it needed feeding again. There were cows, horses and sheep on the farm, as well as the captured humans, but within two days the troll had eaten everything "
So, the Troll there eats in 48 hours cows, horses and sheep in plural!!!!! A single cow is (aprox) 1200 pounds, a horse make it 1100 pounds aprox and a sheep 150 pounds, human 150 pounds. Let's take the minimum of the plural, that is two of each. The troll ate 5200 pounds (ok, this includes bones) so lets take 3000 pounds of meat (although I am sure the Troll takes also the bones) in 48h!!!!! So that is….108 / 63 (with / without bones) pounds per hour!!!!!!!
Is this ok? or just the guys that wrote the adventure does not diferentiate a Troll from a Giant? (I am not even sure that a Giant from warhammer eats that much)
