Default Any rumors of post mini set 3 new products?

I am seeing lots of things from Fantasy Trip and Car Wars to keep me broke, but not anything from Ogre. Did I miss some rumors about new products?

Ogre Minis Set 4: Combine basic armor units and Ogres Mk 1 and Mk 2 was pre-announced at Fnordcon 2. It'll be a crowdfunding campaign, but discussions are still being had as to whether it'll be IGG or KS.

Thanks. That is the ogre mini set I want most. I can't wait to replace my metal minis with the great quality plastic. I got the Paneuropean sets for completeness. But the Combines are just so pretty.

Nice. Have something to look forward to!

Hope KS, I like the way they do things better.

This is very good news. Sorry I missed the announcement at the online Fnordcon2.
While I would have loved an "All the Ogres" project (MK I, II, III-B, Ninja and Vulcan) I actually prefer to get the basic Combine units (HVY, MSL, GEV, HWZ and INF, I presume) along with the MK I and II.
I'll take KS or IGG. Either is fine with me. I suspect they will go with IGG simply because there will probably be few if any stretch goals on this project. OGRE Minis 3 proved that a very short, sharply-focused project can work. And the workload for an IGG project will probably be less for them.
Having said that, I really, really hope there are stretch goals as I would dearly love to have GitD Combine minis. Especially Ogres.
Phil, I am totally in if you put up a "Too Phookin' Many Minis" pledge level.

This is great news!

What I would like most of all would be an add-on bundle of "Too Many Mk.Is and Mk.IIs". Or at the very least, have several of each model type within each standard force.

Speculation is 1 Mk II and 2 Mk Is on a separate mold, just like every other set, so they can be run separately from the conventional force.

Quite likely. The question being how many of those sprues get bundled with each set of conventional sprues.

I can use a whole lot more Mk.Is and Mk.IIs than I can whole Combine armies!

Once we get MK IIs, we have all the minis we need for "Operation Icepick."
I know "Iron Mountain" gets all the love, but I would LOVE to see a playmat for Icepick.
