Default Barbarian Ogres

Okay, I understand that the Vatican Ogres were on the Uncommon Ogres sheet .But I'm a little confused as to if the sons of Nassau had Ogres. Gone thru BATG and may have missed it so I need the help of the group. I know the ARF consisted only of GEVs. I need a count of how many of each. Drew or anyone please help? Thanks.

I have several Sons Mk.IIIs. I don't recall where I got them, though. Almost certainly the Uncommon Ogres.

I counted two with the tiger strips if that is the ones you mean. Is there another color? DO the White Tigers have Ogres?

The tiger-striped Ogres from Uncommon Ogres are meant to be Sons of Old Nassau. The White Tigers are specialist infantry, and don't have Ogres of their own.

I'm not sure what you're asking when it comes to the ARF. Page 6 of BatG shows that the most you'll normally see on the map at once are 8 GEVs, 8 LGEVs, 2 Heavy GEVs, and 2 Missile GEVs.

Walt designed the Uncommon Ogres sheet to complement both my Barbarians at the Gate set as well as Roy's Nihon sheet. Additionally, he added some Ogres of his own that he wanted to see in the game. The breakdown of his sheet is as follows:

Barbarians at the Gate
Vatican Mark V
Vatican Mark III
Vatican Laser Tower, Laser Turret and Admin Building
Sons of Old Nassau Mark III

Nihon Empire
Mark III

"Other" Ogres
Arctic Mark V
Arctic Mark III
Arctic Laser Tower, Laser Turret and Admin Building
Battle-damaged Combine Mark III
"Marauder" Mark III

(While I'm cataloging these factions, please note the Kickstarter exclusive sheets Vulcans & Friends had both a Vatican Guard and a Nihon CP included on them)

The Vatican Guard and Sons of Old Nassau are more-or-less complete, although they are obviously missing most of the forthcoming Battlefields units. The ARF is entirely GEVs at this point, but certainly non-GEV soldiers deserted to their cause as well. The limitations of the counter sheets and the attempt at programmed play for the ARF caused me to limit them to GEVs at this time.

And as ColBosch correctly mentioned, the White Tigers are specialist infantry of the Sons of Old Nassau, and thus do not have their "own" Ogres, as the tiger striped ones belong to the same faction.

I would love to produce additional counter sheets that would "flesh out" the Barbarian factions to their fullest, but that is not a conversation for this forum.

Note: There is a thread dedicated to the contents of all the sheets that is stickied on the Ogre forums. You may also get to it from this link as well.

It breaks down the sheets into exactly what is on them and how many of each unit.

Thanks, that confirms everything. I'm just finishing up that scenario we discussed Drew and it gets its first playtest this weekend at Wintercon in Oakland, MI.(I hope). I'll try and post what I can but this site here won't allow me to post images for some reason so I'll have to like to BGG or FB. Again thanks to everyone that responded.
