Lots of plastic, and some metal

I sorted through my batches of Kickstarter plastic Ogre miniatures yesterday, just to get an idea of what I have and how many years it will take me to paint all of it. I ordered a batch of the black plastic Ogres (III & V) from Warehouse 23 as well, and I also picked up some of the last few metal miniatures they had in stock.

I still have a few hundred metal miniatures left to paint as well. At my current rate of painting, I should be done in 2045. Might have to speed things up a bit.

What's in the box?

I opened up a box of the plastic Ogre miniatures to see what is included:

Lots of plastic bags!

2 red Ogre sprues (Mk III and Mk V)

7 Blue unit sprues

A copy of Ogre Miniatures Lite, an assembly guide, Record cards for the Ogres, and a glow in the dark D6.

Plastic Ogre minis have shipped!

I got an email this morning that my Ogre miniatures from the Kickstarter had shipped. Sure enough, the FedEx driver just dropped them off at my house...

Ogre Miniatures Set #1 Kickstarter Successful!!!

The Kickstarter for Ogre Miniatures Set #1 closed yesterday, fully funded (and then some!).

Final total was $124,628. The goal was $15,000, so I would say there was some interest in seeing these get done.

Kickstarter for Ogre Miniatures!

Steve Jackson Games has created a Kickstarter for Ogre Miniatures in plastic. It's almost over, and I have been remiss in not posting about it sooner.

They are already talking about set two, so here's hoping that happens. It would be so nice to be able to walk into a FLGS and actually buy Ogre miniatures again. Apparently the new Ogre 6e (smaller box) will be in stores soon as well.

Japanese Ogre

It's been a while since I posted on here, however, I picked up an interesting item on eBay the other day and wanted to share:

This is of course, the Ogre microgame, translated to Japanese. What I found interesting is that some of the manual illustrations do not appear to have been used anywhere else in the Ogre product line. Since I can't read Japanese, I can't tell who the artist is on these.

An interesting take on the Paneuropean heavy tank:

A slightly different Mark V Ogre:

 A very different Paneuropean missile tank:


Definitely a howitzer, but which side?

 A very different looking Mark III:

I'd love to find out more about these.

On an unrelated note, Origins 2015 time has arrived, and I am loading up all my Ogre miniatures stuff to play on Saturday, if I can get a table in the open gaming area...
