April 27, 2017: New Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Previews

I am a huge fan of miniatures and minis wargames. So when we got the test shots of Ogre Miniatures Set 1, I was like a kid on Christmas morning. So many sprues! So much plastic! So much Ogre

While these are not final, they give a good idea of where the models are going. The infantry clip system is one of the coolest things I've seen, and from what I've seen of Ogre Miniatures Set 2 will play a role there as well. But I'm a fan of the classics, and the Howitzer looks amazing to me. I love the textured base, and just the size of that gun. Of course, the Ogres look incredible, too. Some small details on the designs will get tweaked . . . again, these are not final.The red color, in particular, will be darker.

We liked this batch enough that we sent Ben Williams, one of our production artists who is also a renowned miniatures painter, home to spiff up the Ogres. As you can see, the results were incredible. Ben created masterpieces in a matter of hours, with stellar shading and highlighting. His work was so good that some posters thought I had Photoshopped them, but I can assure you, I held them as you see them, in my own two hands.

Look for Ogre Miniatures Set 1 at your local game store later this year (after it ships to Kickstarter backers).
