Ogre Miniatures Set 1: Kickstarter Closes Soon, New Reward Level "Many Minis!"

7 likes

The Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter project closes on Wednesday, and at the moment we have the project has broken through ten stretch goals and are closing in on the $70,000 goal. Each box currently includes over 40 plastic miniatures, and we have opened a new $150 reward level that includes over 240 minis. As a bonus, we have also added Ogre: Objective 218 to the "Many Minis!" reward level.

If you've been looking for Ogre miniatures, please check out the project today.

Ogre Music Is Here!

Remember this?

$425,000 - GOAL ACHIEVED! More Tom Smith music!

We do. And we have just one word to describe our reaction: Wow!

Ok . . . we’ve got a lot more words. Evocative. Amazing. Haunting. Inspiring. Ogresque!

We are pleased to present to you the fruition of years of work by the esteemed Tom Smith, completing another stretch goal promise. We think this album of music from Tom was well worth the wait! 17 tracks in total, including “Decision Tree”, “Little GEV”, “The Combine Infantry”, and “Lament For the Dead.” (Did Uncle Al manage to slip in a radio spot?)

All applicable backers (those backing at $25 or higher) should soon receive, if you haven’t already, a link to download this album. You can find it in your Warehouse 23 download library. 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. 

If you have any questions, or feel you should have received Tom Smith’s “Ogre Suite” and haven't, email kickstart@sjgames.com and we'll help sort it out.

So the next time you’re “Setting Up the Board”, be sure to have Tom’s music playing in the background. Because killing Ogres deserves a soundtrack!

And speaking of killing Ogres, another one of our promises is doing really well too, crushing numerous stretch goals of its own under its treads. Click over to the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter and check out our newest pledge level: the Ogre Starter Bundle. Get new opponents to play with, and some great miniatures to boot!

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!

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!
