Ogres with guns
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:57:10 PM »
Hi Andy

After seeing and like the Deathball ogres.
I was wondering if you had considered making Sci If versions with guns? I thought perhaps modifying existing figures would be easier/less time consuming then sculpting from scratch.
These would make good "count as" ogryns for an imperial guard army.

Regards

Karl

Some decent sci-ogres would be cool, the only GW one I ever liked was the original rogue trader one.

Ooh! Good call! Some Not-gryns would be cool.

Good idea.

I'd also like to see powered armour wearing ogres.

Gun-wielding ogres in the same style as the sci-fi troopers would be an autobuy for me, too. Imagine one with the Edmondson & Mayall SSW slung over his shoulder, Boris-style or one with a beer can in his hand! :D

Keep prodding me, I could be tempted. Not for a month or two yet, but try towards christmas when I've got other stuff out of the way (dragon, etc)

Should say, I do plan some 'GM Joes', which would be big guys that might fit the role but wouldn't have the huge hands and heads that a proper ogre should...

Hm, if the Ogre heads (Deathball) would halfways fit, you could offer them for sale as well as part of the spare heads range, for people to convert their GM Joes into Ogres.

My initial reaction was [diva]'but I want proper ogres'[/diva] *stamp foot*

I'd definitely prefer proper monstrous sci-fi ogres, but I imagine GM Joes would be cool particularly if Andy's more enthusiastic about them than not-gryns.

*stamp foot* *pout* :whistle:
