Ogres Thunder Their Way on to the Pitch

Ogre 12

Many years ago when I was a much younger man with no responsibilities, I had the luck to attend the first Blood Bowl tournament held at the GW headquarters in Nottiginham.  Besides playing six nail-biting games over a two day period and attempting to drink Bugman’s Bar dry, I had an exciting opportunity to be one of the first 100+ people to get my hands on the then brand new metal Ogre team.

At the time the Ogre team was something to be awed at.  It offered a plethora of arms, legs, head, and bodies to help create a wide variety of poses.  It also came with a new goblin model and an arm representing an ogre throwing a goblin.  The models wear beefy!  Being completely metal they were always at risk of drops breaking them back into their component pieces.  Their size and bases also made them tricky to use on the game board.  It wasn’t too long before the team was out of production and now 18+ years later a new and improved team takes to the field.  Do they stack up to their forefathers?  Are we seeing an ogre renaissance?  Mr. White and I offer our thoughts on this new team and how we feel they stack up against their history.
