Update #103

Classic Counters!

Three containers of Ogre are now on the water! To celebrate, I thought it a good time to share photos of the Classic Counters that will also start shipping in October. Enjoy these pics of the counters shown with the Ogre Pocket Edition counters.

      @ Phillip Reed - Just pulled down the classic counters PDF. Having a digital version of the classic counters was an important part of the project for me. I am very happy to have them.

      Easiest way for address changes is just email kickstart@sjgames.com with the new address (and the email address used to respond to the survey if sending from a different email address). -Brandon

      @Phil, Keith -- I find a comment from Phil about a classic counter PDF, but haven't found another reference in the SJG or Phil comments on Kickstarter:
      http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/ogre-designers-edition/comments… (maybe the link will work)
      ***
      Philip Reed on May 10, 2012
      Free PDF of classic counters. Yes, this is still happening.
      ***
      .
      It looks like Phil's comment was in response to a question by Keith Carter:
      ***
      Keith Carter on May 10, 2012
      When the classic black & white counters were announced as the $500K stretch goal on May 3rd it also said that a high resolution PDF of the same would be made available at some point. I have not seen any mention of the PDF file since. It is not in the extras text of the Kickstarter project home page, not in the Goal Achieved! text for $500K, nor is it in the PDF list in the unofficial Ogre Pledge Configurator!.

      Is the PDF of the black & white counters still in play?
      ***
      .
      And here's the promise: Update #21 on May 03, 2012, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/ogre-designers-edition/posts/220318
      ***
      We will also make those files available as hi-res PDFs, for those who want far more than they can afford and don’t require super quality . . . and against the day when we sell out.

      @Poi - UK delivery should be happening roughly as fast as packages can make their way around. All shipping starts October 21, but between the number of packages we have to ship and delivery times I'm unsure of specific delivery dates. I don't even know how many we'll be able to ship each day once we get rolling.

      Creator Philip Reed on August 22, 2013

      @Keith Carter - Keith, I don't have the master list here at home so can you point me to where we stated the classic counters will be released in PDF? If that's something we announced then I want to get instructions sent off to staff ASAP. Thanks!

      Creator John H. on August 21, 2013

      @KevinR: The silhouette is clearly a mono-chassis, so any MCP will be on a MSL or MHWZ chassis, not a MCR chassis. I just need to get a feel for which chassis makes more sense.

      The Hovetruck chassis is the same as the GEV-PC, based on the classic silhouettes..

    12. Ogre.small.small

      Creator KevinR on August 21, 2013

      @John H: there are official HCP and CP minis in Warehouse 23 now:
      http://warehouse23.com/info/ogre.html
      .
      For MCP, I would probably consider a NAC CP or PE HCP on a missile crawler. For the GEV-MCP, maybe you could fit something on a hovertruck: maybe one of the canvas tops with a dish from a PE HCP or a Mark I tower?

      I spy, with my little eye:
      D1 MCP
      D2 MCP
      GEV-MCP

      If one were to model these things in Ogre Miniatures, how big are they? MCP on a MSL chassis? GEV-MCP on a GEV-PC chassis (like HVR-TRUCK)?

      Pre-punched Ogre counters? What is this world coming to?

      Why in my day, you had to cut the counter sheets with scissors.

      And not these new-fangled scissors with the wide plastic grips.

      Oh, no. It was thin metal scissors that made your fingers ache.

      Kids, today.

      Shouldn't that be "Three containers of Ogre are now crawling across the seabed!"?
      Nice to see the classic counters at last. Now we'll have to ask for full scale B&W maps to go with them. :)

      Huge. Awesome.

      Just a quick note from my Gen Con visit.

      I've read so much "oooh it so huge!" and "ooooh it's so awesome!" so I'd kind of started tuning it out.

      But man, when you see it in person it really is THAT impressive. It is so huge and it is so awesome.

    You are sponsoring a whole 8" x 10” counter sheet, which will go into every copy of the game. We’ll work with you to determine what goes on the sheet and how it will be colored. The unit design will have to fit Ogre canon (no clown faces on the Superheavy Tanks, no overt advertising on the Ogres . . .) but that still leaves a lot of leeway. Your name will go on the sheet as sponsor, and we’ll send you at least a dozen extra copies of the sheet. This also includes everything at the $100 level. (Again, shipped anywhere.)

    Your own exclusive 8" x 10” counter sheet. Want an Ogre with your logo on it? Want a squadron of pink GEVs? No problem. We’ll work with you on colors, design, and choice of dies. You’ll also be able to print your logo, name, or other stuff on the margins of the sheet. This could be a promo item for a convention, distributor, or big retail store. These sheets won’t go into the actual game. We will ship you at least 3,000. We’ll own the remaining copies but (unless you wish otherwise) they’ll stay in our warehouse for at least a year after the new Ogre game is released. If you want to resell your sheets, rather than just give them away, you’ll have to sign a licensing agreement to use the Ogre name and images, but that won’t cost you extra. This also includes everything at the $100 level. (Shipping free in the US. You will pay actual shipping costs outside the US.)

    Your own exclusive 10.5 x 17.125” counter sheet. You must use one of our existing dies; your best choices are Combine armor, Paneuro armor, or a sheet full of Ogres. Time is short, so you must either provide your own art to our specs, or make the "paint" job simple. You’ll still be able to print your logo, name, or other stuff on the margins of the sheet.

    Your Own Ogre Convention. Steve Jackson will attend your 2-day Ogre event anywhere in the US or Canada (you can ask about other locations, but no promises!). You will need to cover Steve’s hotel and travel costs separately, and dates have to fit his existing commitments, so factor that in, and please talk to Steve directly (post a comment with your contact info) before you pledge! You also get four copies of the Kickstarter edition, your choice of $600 worth of Ogre swag or extras, and naming rights to one Ogre in the Designer's Edition as described for the $200 level. Steve will bring a large stack of party favors (including three of our prototype 3-D Ogres which you can use as prizes), run events, talk about upcoming projects, sign things, and other general convention stuff. Or you can do it as a house party and only invite a few people. Your call.
