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 OGREand Deluxe GEVsets. 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.
