The Hill Goblins could perhaps come on the strip (if you do strips)
Yup I'll probably do strips for the little guys actually, so no need for extra ones there.

Different rosters:
1st list
Tyrant
2 Bruisers
Butcher
4 Bull Ogres
2 Leadbelchers
2 Ironguts
2 Rhinox Riders
1 Gorgers - to pursue cavalry etc.

2nd list
Tyrant
Bruiser
Butcher
4 Bull Ogres
2 Leadbelchers
2 Ironguts
2 Rhinox Riders
1 Slave Giant
3 Gnoblars

3d list
Tyrant
2 Bruisers
Butcher
4 Bull Ogres
2 Leadbelchers
2 Ironguts
1 Rhinox Riders
1 Slave Giant
1 Gorgers
3 Gnoblars


BTW - instead of making different standard bearers for each unit type you may make one common bearer with empty banner pole +  3-4 variants of different banner tops.

This would probably my first preference for an Ogre list so models I would look for seem pretty well supplied by Mr E&C:

Warmaster Army Selector
Ogre Kingdoms Army, 1965 points
Warmaster Trial Armies Compendium 2009
----------------------------------------------------------------
4 Bull Ogres
2 Leadbelchers
4 Ironguts
6 Gnoblars
1 Rhinox Riders
1 Tyrant
1 Bruiser
1 Butcher
----------------------------------------------------------------
1965 - 17/9

I've PM'd Vincent to ask if he'll promote this on the French forums, hopefully he will and we might see even more interest in Ogres.

One question - can I ask about timescale (apologies if it's been mentioned). When do you think you'd be likely to release the models (purely so I can start looking forward to it).

Oh, and I'd buy a full 2000 point army (so the basic £60 set plus another pack of Ogres at the very least). I'm also happy to pay the £60 + postage upfront if that helps you out.

pw's mix looks good, though instead of a dedicated army commander I'd include a mounted commander.

That's an excellent idea, it's look very 'commanding'.

I'd say January at the soonest. Possibly later - this is a rather large sculpting job, creating an entire army from scratch.

It seems a shame to shoot down the offer of cannons / launcher or big mammoth monsters because they aren't on the army list. =-P

EDIT Accidentally a word

These?
Quote
- Large cannon or catapult dragged by a woolly rhino
- Woolly Mammoth ridden by an (high commander) Ogre
If wave 1 sells well, I will certainly make these... they're the really fun bits!

I don't really view myself as bound by what's in the Warmaster army list - I'm more looking to make a set of cool Fantasy Ogre models, and I think big creatures like Dragons, Manticores, Mammoths etc. should be part of the Fantasy experience.


Mind you, there's still 2 pledges to go to fund Wave 1, so I won't count any chickens just yet. :-)

I could imagine the list developing in line with cool models.

Are you able to do a size comparison with other wm figures?

See attached:

One picture is a rough comparison for size (I just eyeballed a picture I found on the internet), the second picture is probably more useful, 3 Ogres on a 40mm x 20mm base.

Cool, thanks. They look really very fine indeed. It looks like they're about the same height/size as the current WM Ogres.

1 more pledge and I'll do it!

In the Kickstarter tradition here are some "stretch goals":

12 pledges - Strips of Lesser Goblins
14 pledges - Large Cannon & Large Catapult, dragged by Woolly Rhinos.
16 pledges - Monstrous Woolly Mammoth + Ogre Riders (Commander & Wizard rider options)


Only word of mouth will make this happen. :-)
