Reinforcements for OGRE

At a Houston game store last week, I chanced upon some OGRE Miniatures boxed sets, the kind Steve Jackson Games stopped producing some years ago, and I picked up this box of powersuited infantry.  I've been meaning to obtain more infantry figures, and this package delivers.  It holds 72 infantry figures (each mini representing a squad of troops in OGRE/GEV) and also comes with 24 heavy weapons so I can add some long-range punch to my infantry squads. 

I don't play the straight-up minis rules; instead I use the figures on the large maps that came with the Deluxe OGRE and Deluxe GEV sets.  With the new edition coming out soon, I plan on snagging a couple of new maps for some huge battles.  And I'll have plenty of infantry to hold all that ground.

Was it Nan's Too? I know they did have some boxes last time I went in there, which was, oh, a year or so back.

Anyway, nice score. What else did they have?

Yeah, it was Nan's. They had a couple of other boxes, but it was stuff I already had. Still, I'm sure I'll be kicking myself for not grabbing it when I had the chance.
