Color me on board! At long last, Steve Jackson Games is backing a project that brings back the long out of print OGRE MINIATURES LINE (out of print, incredibly expensive in after market) back as plastic miniatures. The miniatures are designed based on the originals, match the originals in scale and look, and have been cleaned up and retooled for plastic molding process. The only models currently in kickstarter are the basic OGRE set– it appears that you will be able to recreate the original OGRE scenario (with an Ogre III and an Ogre V to use). The models are cast in a solid color, blue for the little guys and red for the OGRES.
As you can see they are doing a great job with the sculpts. The molds apparently have been purchased and the deal with China has been made.
You can even buy a reverse set in the primary plastic colors, courtesy of another funding resource
I’m pretty excited about this one– and I backed it! I may add on a reverse set, as well. The mere fact that SJG is calling this SET ONE means they will likely expand the rest of the OGRE universe.. exciting times!
