Steve, Under Box

Douglas Morse has launched the Kickstarter for his book of game designer bios and portraits - you can see it here - I have seen the insides, and it’s great.

My own picture was taken at Origins 2013 and shows me crushed under an Ogre box. Prescient, what? You can see it in the intro video.

He’s got a really reasonable support level, so go over there and see if this is a book you’d like.

And In Local News

. . . we are just a few bucks away from another stretch goal on the miniatures project at the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter. This one will put another missile tank in the box. We've also crested the 1,000 backer mark - quite a feat!

If you don't have a Warehouse 23 account, the email you received includes a link that will work for three downloads, and expire in 30 days.

We're also happy to report that the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter is rolling along nicely. We just unlocked the third stretch goal: an extra Heavy Tank for each set! We're climbing towards a lot of extra miniatures, so if you want a plastic upgrade to your units, swing over to that Kickstarter and check it out. 

Thanks as always for all the support!

Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Launches On Kickstarter!

9 likes

Hello backers! We are proud to announce the launch of our Ogre Miniatures Set 1 on Kickstarter!

This collection of unpainted, unassembled miniatures is an attractive and affordable way to upgrade your existing copy of Ogre Designer's Edition. They're perfect for painting, but come in PanEuropean blue (for defense) and Combine red (for the Ogres) if painting is not your thing.

Campaign closes on November 30. Thanks for all of your support!

Early October Update

We’re plugging away here at CP Fnord. Two of the promised scenarios from Steve, “GEV Escort” and “Dogpile,” have been up for review and suggestions at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenarios/, and a third, “Gauntlet,” has now been posted. Please have fun with them and then come back to the forums and give us your battle reports and feedback. Definitely more to come here as we anticipate a steady stream of scenario releases over the coming weeks.

New Unit rules – the last of the “new” units, the Ninja, will be posted soon on our website at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/new-units/. This unit has gone down a path that Steve always envisioned, but only now has seen fleshed out. Even more so than the Vulcan, it has departed from what has come before. Please take it out for a spin or 30; we’re hoping for lots of play-test feedback on this! Your input on the forums will be invaluable. Each Ninja should be a unique creation; now they can be!

Those of you who don’t frequent the forums, or check in on the “Ogre News” at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/, may have missed the announcement about the Ogre map generator. Tom Cornwell has created an impressive tool to create your own Ogre/G.E.V. maps. Check it out at http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=146041.

As per the last Update, we’re making headway on the plastic minis. Look for an announcement on this very soon!

Speaking of more to come, it sounds like Tom Smith is close to completing the final tracks of the Ogre music. We look forward to getting this out as a free download to everyone who sponsored at $25 or above.

The scenario contest pdf is in its final stage of production, and should be sent out in the near future. Thank you everyone for going over the recent draft and offering your suggestions. Ogre Scenario Book 2 is truly a compilation of amazing ideas by some of our fantastic fans!

Like the Ogres themselves, the renaissance of Ogre support marches on. Stay tuned!

Plastic Ogre Miniatures Update

We're getting closer to making an official announcement, but we thought many of you would want a peek at the test shot of the first plastic Ogre miniature. We're still working with the factory so this may not be 100% final, but we're getting close to nailing down Sculpt One. Additionally, we've reviewed CAD files for other units, and the project continues to move forward.

More Ogre news to come, as we're now about one week from the pre-mortem for Ogre Reinforcements. Once that's knocked out, the files will head to print, and we'll continue moving forward on the set of plastic Ogre miniatures.

In other news, the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game has surpassed its funding goal and already broken through the first stretch goals. If you're a GURPS fan, please take a look at the project today and join in on this big GURPS boxed game. We've reduced shipping costs for EU and Australian supporters, dropped shipping costs by $10 for all backers thanks to stretch goals, and are on track to deliver the game on schedule.
