I will say that, from my experience this past weekend demonstrating the game to new players at a wargames show here in UK, the 3d Ogre models are quite well liked by children. So it may be worth keeping a few back for that role, if you plan to do anything similar.

I'd like to see a set of One Hex flat OGREs AND flat OGREs like we have from the KickStarter Edition in:
COMBINE Red
PANEUROPEAN Blue
Vatican Guard colors
NIGHTFALL Black

If we have those I would feel as if my chipboard collection were truly complete.

The flat OGREs like from the KickStarter really are nice to use when stacking. As awesome as the 3D OGREs are, that quickly becomes problematic trying to stack with them.

My flat OGRE can only shoot horizontal. It doesn't even have a conning tower it's so flat.

Flat Ogrerthers unite!

I love the 3D units but the back hex overhang always bugged me. Is there any thought to making 3D 1 hex Ogres?

I understand this, but I actually like the two-hex Ogres. It really makes them stand out on the map.

Explaining to new players just which hex an ogre is is a bit of a hassle.

Bigger hexes sound like a better fix.
