Welcome to the first in a series of Ogre miniatures related post that I am putting up this month. I had thought about doing an April's Fool post for Ogre, but the idea I had left a bad taste in my mouth, and wasn't funny for any definition of funny that made one laugh; more like crying in frustration from the attitude express here; my post and Phil Reed's reply follows it.
So the picture above shows one of the sample models of the Mark 4 that Steve Jackson Games rejected some time back in the 1990s I guess. Now assembled and resting on my workbench in all its massive glory. For me this model goes a little past the line of how big is too big, because it is larger than the Mark 5 and the later Mark 6 models. So I can see why it wasn't brought to market. Not only that, but it would cost a small fortune to produce and an even larger one to buy.
As you can I've used neodymium magnets to connect the two halves of the model together, my preferred method of choice nowadays when it comes to Ogres. The colour scheme for my new Nihon Ogre force is going to be overall pink with purple and orange splinter dazzle, it's going to look awesome.
