Default Retiring the Metal Miniatures

As we work on the 4th set of plastic minis, it is officially time for the metal minis to fade into the sunset. From now until December 1, 2021, metal Ogre miniatures at Warehouse 23 are priced at 75% off.

On December 2, they vanish.

I’m a little saddened by this, but I completely understand the reasoning. I have purchased several thousand of the metal miniatures over the years, and even more of the plastics. Really looking forward to the Combine plastics!

Yep. OGRE mini enthusiasts are probably some of the most determined collectors out there. (Looks over at two boxes of Ogre "Many Minis", five more boxes of Set 1, Three more sets of Set 2, Three more sets of "Glow-in-the-dark" (two Set 1s and one Set 2), four sets of Set 4 and three "Battle Boxes.")
Not bragging at all. I probably need help. Especially since I hope Phil puts a "4X" pledge level in Ogre Minis Set 4 when it launches.

Daammmnnn, that's a lot of heavy metal.
You have them on the Hexon hexes, right?

Yes I do. I wanted hex terrain that could actually fit an Ogre in 1 hex.
