I had an interesting Kickstarter campaign pointed out to me yesterday. A company called Word Forge Games is running a campaign for new Ogre miniatures to be used with a forthcoming game called Gore Ball. Gore Ball sounds like yet another riff on the “Fantasy Football” tabletop game genre (i.e. another Blood Bowl clone), which I am not usually interested in. The reason I am not usually interested in them is because I figure I have Blood Bowl, therefore I do not really need tons of Blood Bowl-like games. However, I am interested in this Kickstarter due to the fact that the Ogre minis that the campaign will be funding look like they would fit in VERY nicely with the newest Games Workshop Blood Bowl Ogre.
I have to admit that I actually skipped the last round or Made to Order minis. The reason I did not pick anything up last time is that there was nothing in the releases that I needed really. I already have all the Undead/Necro minis, I am not a huge fan of the Lizardmen team, and I have never really had a desire to play High Elves. This round is a little different for me.
