35 years after the first publication of OGRE, we're coming back with a massive new edition, and YOU can make it better.

Ogre Minis Reprints: Lasers, Missiles and Buildings

We're delighted to announce the Wave Two reprints of Ogre Minis, now on sale at Warehouse 23. This helps fulfill our $450K stretch goal promise. 

These award-winning 1/285 miniatures are perfectly scaled for the maps and counters in Ogre Designer's Edition, the Ogre Miniatures rules (which many received as a Kickstarter reward), or other 6mm scifi rulesets.

This wave's theme is "lasers, missiles and buildings." Previously rare and highly-sought-after rereleases: the Combine and Paneuro Hardened CPs, the Paneuro Laser Turret and Tower, the Paneuro "Draco" Missile Crawler, and many more. (The humble cargo Truck and Ogre Repair Kits also make a return!) 

There's one completely new piece: the Combine "Unity" Missile Crawler. 

If a mini sells out before you order, never fear -- we'll get more printed! Thank you to those who've inquired about Infantry Bases -- we're working on getting them reprinted.

If you need units to round out your collection, many of the existing boxed sets are still available at the fantastic price of just $19.95, until sold out. Hot tip: the Fencer cybertank is low on stock and going fast!

      @John H - Plastic isn't a realistic option for this line. The numbers simply don't work.

      @Paul, classic Ogre is 1/2" chits on a hex map, like any of a number of 1970s hex battle games.

      Ogre Miniatures upgraded to 6mm scale miniatures for a tabletop miniatures game, as Kevin describes.

      Deluxe is classic game, upscaled to use Minatures; it's like upgrading from tiny standees to 28mm heroic figures.

      It is a shame that SJG isn't converting the miniatures to plastic. Even Bones would be better.

      @Paul -- both. There are Ogre Miniatures rules, which roughly parallel the hex-based system but on an open table (basically distance is measured rather than counted at 2 inches to a hex and the terrain rules are tweaked from hex/hexside-based to map-based). However, many people just use the minis on the hex board in place of the cardboard.

      I've never played Ogre. However, I did Kickstart this project. Had I played the game between 1977 and now, I might understand if the mini's are a game in itself or a 3D version of a cardboard chit...like an upgrade to a meeple from a wood cube or something?

      @Jerry Emery - We have no plans to release these minis in plastic.

    6. Creator Jerry Emery on August 22, 2013

      So, when will these be available in plastic? ;-)

      Good to see the Missile Crawlers available for both sides!
