VNT3 Orrid Ogres Released!

“Some would say that you would have to be desperate to hire Ogres into your army. After all they are savages as quick to eat you as to knuckle their foreheads and follow a manlings orders. In fact few of the hamlets along the camberly road would allow our men at arms to billet in their hovels for fear of the big brutes that trailed behind cleavers and clubs in hairy hands. It could have put a fine halt to our campaign against the Dwarves and no mistake but our commander was a wily one and did not give the short arses the chance to profit from our choice of warriors. In the dawn of the first day of the march he paid handsomely a farmer for his whole sty of swine. That put things right with the villagers as we marched through. Some of the peasants even came outside to gape at the Ogres. Those friendly, well fed Ogres. Each of them with a whole pig stuffed into the gap between belly and its belt notches!” 


This code contains two 25mm/28mm white metal creatures approx 30mm in height in one piece each. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE. Poses in this code are as follows: 

VNT3-01: Ogre with big cleaver and horned helmet, chainmail armour, skulls and flint blade at his waist. A whole pig tied to his belt! 
VNT3-02: Ogre with spiked club and sword, a ball and chain on his back, skulls and a severed arm at his belt! 



These miniatures are not supplied with bases and are supplied unpainted. Select your choice from the drop down product menu. Choose from a pack or three packs with a 10% saving applied. 

The Alternative Armies classic high fantasy range dates from the period of the late 1980's to early 1990's through to the end of that decade. Designed by leading names in the wargaming industry and highly successful in its day this range has been on hiatus. Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market. We will be doing this work at a measured pace and a weekly rate maintaining high quality and excellent pricing. During and beyond this process Project Darkhelm will see the range continue to be expanded in the mediums of white metal and high grade resin using top industry designers in new releases. Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system. 

Thanks for Reading.
