A Sci-Fi whiz's wargaming blog about Ogre/GEV, Battletech, and Heavy Gear amongst other things.
I've already got more minis than are practical for me to get on the table for a single game. I'm sure it will make others happy, though.
You are very far from being alone on that front!
So say we all, but I do wish SJG luck.IMNSHO this is what they should've done in the first KickStarter.
I get the impression that they've got the production chain for this kind of plastic manufacture sorted out relatively recently, and Ogre alone might not have justified the volume – I see this as a useful spin-off from the work they've been doing for the new edition of Car Wars.(To people who know me: I have no inside knowledge.)
@Desert Scribe: No one in their right mind ever described the tabletop miniatures hobby as practical! :) Go for it! The ogres call for you *insert inception horn here* @Ashley: I saw this advertised on dakka and figured I'd swing by just in case to let you know. Looks like I'm too late!
In this case my connection to SJG as a MIB meant I was ahead of the curve for once.
I missed the opportunity to get them without paying eBay prices the last time they were available...Not making the same mistake this time!
Unless they do a Vulcan and the Combine laser turret and tower I really don't need any more minis. Want on the other hand, well that's a different matter! ;-)
Oh, don't get me wrong, there's a lot of things I'll be needing for a proper OGRE game: Laser towers like you said, hovertrucks, etc. but for generic 'red vs. blue' sci-fi wargames? Get me some 1/300 mecha and I'll be set :)
Have you seen the rules for mech in Ogre?http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/miniatures/ogrmecha.html
Hmmm, Now I don't have to write the rules and I can move onto the next thing. Thanks for pointing these out!
