The color scheme on the Ogre is nice, but I sure as hell hope that other thing is a logo on it or something, and not one of the counters/units.

Given the number of people clamoring for some sort of giant lizard during the Kickstarter project, it would not surprise me if that is indeed one of the units.

Why? With the 9 custom counter sheets sold, there's already going to be a preponderance of Mk VI Ogres so everyone can say "I got the biggest one swinging"... why waste more space on a unit that there are no rules for, and doesn't fit in the game anyway? I'll reserve final judgement until the sheet is complete, but so far this one is a 'Pass' for me.

I say, since there are going to be so many optional sheets, bring on the weirdness! If you want it, buy it! If not, fine. Not everything on these sheets has to be canon.

I was leery of how chintzy the "ernie" counter might turn out... but this is right on.

PS Bring on the giant lizardness!

I might think of it as a Chinese attempt to totally freak out the Nihon city infantry when it bites off the top of a block of flats. Inside that Mechzilla may be 20 Chinese pedaling hard

Not canon, but potentially quite fun.

Thanks for your feedback, Brian.

Just to clarify a few things:

- The BGG 4.5K sponsor sheets will not come in the Designer's Ed. box. They are an entirely optional separate purchase from BGG.

- AFAIK, this is the only Mk VI Ogre on the sponsor sheets (at last count, I think there is also 1 in the box and 1 in the KS bonus sheets, though I'm sure someone will correct me)

- The awesome lizard thing is not canon. It's no different from some guy printing a godzilla model out in photoshop and using it in his/her own game, except that this way BGG gets some income, Ogre DE got $4.5K more sponsorship, and those who want to pay a modest amount to get a premade awesome lizard thing model can have one.

- Quite a lot of folks out there want an awesome lizard thing... and it might even help attract some BGG folks who don't know Ogre to get interested in it...

I hope that helps!

Best,
Tal

I have never seen that link! Dammit you people, I was happy being all offended and indignant and superior, and look what you've done. Now it looks like I might have giant monsters and who knows what else tramping about on my boards. Next thing you know I'll have PE units as the attackers in the Smash the CP! scenario :shudder:

As to the Mk VI, I was just expressing that I figured everyone would prolly want one of those beasts in their custom colors

The Deluxe Ogre Miniatures has NAC units and CP. The Mark III included "speaks with a French accent". So as insane as it sounds, it's canon to run the game backwards. War is strange.

Also, note that these are only a couple of the things on one of our sheets... there's definitely more!

I always though Ogre needed Goshzilla rules before it needed Cthulhu rules. It just seemed more fitting to me.

I also think Crush, Crumble and Chomp needs an iOS update/release.

Is the critter going to be a 3D unit?

I love it! One of the things I like about the OGRE system is that it works for cyber-tanks and giant lizards. Count me in for one (or two)!

1. I really like the paint job on the Ogre.

2. What in the holy heck is the big lizard? Or is that the whole story...it's a big lizard?

3. Anybody got stats for the big lizard?
