OGRE...the Next Generation

This week was Right Stuff's birthday and nestled amongst his gift goodies was this little treasure - the recent reprint of the original OGRE pocket edition.

I remember buying a slightly later 2nd edition (the one in a plastic pocket) at his age too as my first war-game and have loved it ever since.

So it was with quite a bit of nostalgia that I thought it would be an appropriate present for the lad as his first 'real' hex and counter style war-game.

He is off reading the rules now getting ready for our first showdown tomorrow night...

So very tempted

Its been a long while since I cracked any OGRE or GEV goodies out, but I was very tempted when I saw this 13kgs of awesomeness at the CanCon game show last weekend...

Mk III: L'Hero

Ogre designation: 9038 HRO
Allegiance: Paneuropean
Credit: OgreMarkXXX
Mark: III
Nickname: L'Hero
Details: Unit HRO earned its nickname during its first tour of duty when it routed the remnants of a Combine task force before it could destroy a french town. After recently engaging a Combine defesne force and destroying their command post, it embarked on a mission into the heart of Combine territory. It's current whereabouts are now Classified.
The first picture is simply of the ogre. The second is a picture of it engaging elements of the 51 Combine Armored Division. They are kind of fuzzy but that's what they are. The third is a picture of the ogre hitting a 51st GEV. I plan on adding decals to it so I might send you more pictures in the future when I finish.

Mk IV: Lucious

Name: Lucious
Allegience: NAC
Modelling notes: This is another German WW II camo scheme. After a spray base coat of Floquil white, I airbrushed the model with Vallejo Yellow Ochre. I then airbrushed the stripes with Testors Model master Medium Green (1713), and Rust(1785). Once dry, the model was washed with GW brown ink, then highlighted with GW Bleached Bone. After a coat of Testor's Glosscote, the decals were applied - these were model railroad decals that I picked up a hobby shop. I finished the model with another round of Glosscote, then Testor's Dullcote.

Mk II: Winter Camo

Allegience: PanE
Modelling notes: The paint scheme is an actual WW II German winter camo - I saw it on a Panzer IV, online.
I managed to lose part of my airbrush, so this model was done with aerosol spray cans. I did a base prime with Floquil white spray. This was followed by a base coat spray of Testor's Model Master Afrika Mustard (I think)..
I then cut lots of very small pieces of rectangular masking tape, and applied them randomly. I lightly oversprayed the whole madel with Floquil white primer again, let it dry, then removed the masking. This was followed by a black wash, then white highlighting. After a coat of Testor's Glosscote, I applied the red decals to the turret (they are from GHQ - Russian WW II markings).
I gave the model a final spray of Glosscote, to seal the decals, followed by a coat of Dullcote.

Enemy Jamscreen neutralised

Friendly connectivity has suffered major interruptions over the past 10 days due to heavy electromagnetic jamming.

The recent strategic cruise missile offensive has neutralised the jamscreen installation responsible for this intereference (as well as several million hectares of enemy held territory) and normal services are now returning.

Have an OGRE day!

Mk VI: Bun-Bun

Designation: BNB 60018-B Name: "Bun Bun"
Allegiance: North American Combine
Notes: "Bun Bun" was built in the continental United States. Its' initial deployment and "shaking out period" required that it cross into the Eurasian Theater by crossing the Arctic Circle, thus his white and gray "winter" camo pattern. This unit was self named upon finding that the technicians at the proving grounds where its' weapons were zeroed in were fans of a pre-neuronet electronic "comic strip".
