Black Ogres have arrived ... six more plastic monsters for the collection.

I also got several other items. In preparation for Minis #2, I ordered another 100 1/32" x 3/4" plexiglas discs for INF mounting, and as proxies for LAD, I ordered 20 "Axis & Allies" (Spring 1942 edition) 'Anti-Aircraft Guns'. The Reactor from the Simpson's "Game of Life" has also arrived, and the Springfield City Hall and School may make a good generic Admin buildings. 'Apu's Kwik-E-Mart', the church, and the Simpson's home are less useful. I do like the idea of the residents of the Springfield Retirement Castle rising up and forming a Militia unit though.

My Combine Set 11 arrived today. Mmm, tiny Ogre goodness.

I'll be there also. At some point as Origins grows closer, we should set up a thread for those that are going so we can coordinate some pick-up games and/or getting together to hoist a pint or two.

ABSOLUTELY!!. I plan on bringing my scenario of the Battle of Dark and Light...(hopefully have it totally fleshed out by then) and could use a few commanders. As for hoisting a pint there's plenty of places and being a Buckeye Alum I know some campus ones as well...at least I did back in 1976.

My Combine Set 12 (Ogre Mk III-B) arrived yesterday, so I've now got a full run of the cybertanks released through normal distribution channels. Sadly, the Warehouse 23-only models - Mk IV, Mk VI, Vulcan, Ninja, and Doppelsoldner - can't be had for love or money. I guess I'll just have to wait for them to appear in plastic.

But in other good news (for me, anyway) I also won a bunch of ancient miniatures off eBay for a surprisingly low price. I won't be certain until I check them one by one, but I believe the lot contains examples of all the Martian Metals and early SJ Games armor units through the mobile howitzer. I know it includes at least three of the Martian Metals missile tanks, with the four-piece turrets.

Please understand that I'm practically shouting this the same way Willem Dafoe did in the aftermath of 'one guy with six guns' in Boondock Saints, but...

THERE WAS A TRACKING NUMBER!

Hopefully the goodies will be here before Christmas, otherwise I get presents early next week...pictures will follow, I've held off on showing you guys my loot until that comes in.

I broke down and ordered an Armory Box ... I don't need more sets, but this way I have balance between all the colors.

I also added some metal Hovertrucks, so because the order was then over $100, I got an Ogre Sherpa pen case as a freebie. While nice to have, that's a product that the idea behind it, I just don't get.

Sherpa cases are just a way to take a boring old Sharpie and dress it up as a nice pen. If you're not into nice pens then I can see how it would be a bit baffling, but there does exist a market.

I got my Black Ogres last week and have now assembled them. Is it just me, or does the black plastic make them look even more sinister? I mean, the regular Ogres are intimidating, but in the colors supplied they're still "bright" enough to not be that scary. The Black ones? *shudder*
