PostSubject: An Alternative Ogryn Model   Tue Nov 23, 2010 2:46 am

So in my bid to cleanse the galaxy of the Ork menace, the ork menace suggested that I might win a game eventually if I had an ogryn. However I think ogryn's are silly, however robots and mech are cool. So I was thinking about just using a sentinel as an Ogryn, it's big and has a gun voila! But then I started thinking that since Deathsquads isn't a GW game anyways I might as well branch out. My first two thoughts were the mech suits from Avatar and AT-43 walkers. However after looking into it they are both sort of hard to find however I did come across this guy.

I had know about Incursion from before and had even downloaded there trial rules (NAZI Zombies? doesn't get much cooler and more evil than that). But the thought of starting a whole new game system with no opponents was a bit daunting. However I am now seriously considering adding and APE to my Death Squad and for half the price of an ogryn I might add.

Very cool and great prices. I've been waiting for a few more models to come out before I think about building a squad from these guys. Slugger Murphy is perhaps my favourite of the APE models.

Laney Very Happy

COOL STUFF! It's taken quite awhile for the Incursion Game to come out...looks to be worth the wait. While I was at it I checked out some of the other minis; the Nazi Babes look pretty nice. Under the Junk Heading, the SID Robot are REALLY COOL:

Well... this topic just earned a "sticky"!!!

I love that model. As a matter of historical fact, when we were first toying with the concept for Death Korps, THAT is what I suggested for their 'big unit'. I got me a model... ONE day I will work on it! HA!

Death Squads allows you to substitute models... for game purposes, you are an 'Ogryn'. For YOUR purposes, you can be an Albatross for all I care (although the Ape is WAY cooler! Cool ) If it helps you to create a better story... GO FOR IT!!!!

Edited for for being a dumbass by assuming and being completely wrong . Disregard it turns out the mini is only 25mm tall...sorry.

These might be pretty good base models for an Ogryn (Mechanicus maybe Idea ) with a simple weapon swap. I like the bulky armor look. From the pic the base looks to be maybe 30-40mm.

Alternative ogre model from Studio McVey. It looks to be about the right size, but I haven't had it in hand, though.

Could probably also work as a scaly for Necromunda, while you're at it.

You can't pick them up separately (but you may find someone selling 2 spares as you can field them in units of 3) but the Privateer press Ogrun Assault Corps might be an option: - Actually you probably can pick them up separately in their bits store!



How about this from Mad puppet miniatures Smile

While this is technically a fantasy miniature, I've used this figure to make an Ogryn to good effect! A weapon swap, and perhaps a head swap...
