Just the other day I got the new Blood Bowl box set and put it together. It’s been funny to see how the models have gotten bigger over the years. I know there’s even more extreme examples out there. So if you’ve got yourself an Ogre for your team, your older figures might not be so big by comparison. But Games Workshop is here to help with a new Ogre mini in their webshop.

From the website:

Able to smash, crash and bash through even the toughest opponents, Ogres provide Human teams with that touch of utter brutality sometimes missing from their rosters. It’s not that the Humans they play alongside are puny, far from it – it’s just that sometimes a wall of linemen needs to be shattered, and an Ogre can get the job done much more quickly, and with much nastier results. It’s just more efficient!

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Blood Bowl Ogre. He comes supplied with a 32mm Blood Bowl round base, featuring a hole to slot the ball into when your miniature has possession.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I like the sculpt but $18 for one ogre?!? Yikes!

    • I wouldn’t think that price would be all that bad, really, anymore. I was personally expecting to see $25 as the price. So I was surprised how low it was.

        Even at crazy inflated GW prices, you’re paying $35 for an entire skaven/dwarf/reavers 12-person team (not to mention the included gameballs, coin, and markers.) So pricing 1 ogre at over half the cost of an entire team is outrageous, even for a company known for outrageous pricing. Unless you’re Polar Bear and you rake in that 6-figure mad cheddar for running TGN. 😉

        Right, their single characters are typically over $20 these days, and this one is bigger than normal.

        I think they’re actually trying to price competitively for Blood Bowl, knowing there are plenty of alternatives out there and it’s too late to sue them all.

        What does a comparable Privateer Press or Wyrd model cost? Where will FFG end up on the price scale with their new game with unpainted miniatures? I think the three of them have been making GW look cheap recently, which is absurd.

        $18 is still terrible.

      In fairness, the miniature is actually made of ogre bone, so it’s quite a bargain.

    I’ll keep using old Confrontation minis, thank you…
    Gotta agree with Davos there, $18 is ludicrous. $10-12 I could see, given it’s it a GW product.
