That would be from the 90's version of "Gofgag's Mercenary Ogres".

I'm using plastic Ogre Bulls in my replacement set, with the Iron Guts parts for the Champion & Chieftain.

As I'm using an over-sized board, the Ogre Lord is an Ogre Tyrant, but for a normal board you can do more with the Iron Guts to make a third distinctive model.

I have. Look at reapermini.com and use their search bar. It actually works pretty well in their webstore.
Reaper is always a good starting point when looking for minis as their range is humungous and they vary in style (because fo their work-for-hire sculptors).


Thanks!

Thanks!!

Now I do also have mini's from Citadel, GamesWorkshop, Grenadier, Spoontiques, Reaper and some I have no idea who made. I think that the old school pre slota and pre steroids looking mini's are the best.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Check out drathe's thread on HeroQuest Compatible Miniatures. Lots of good proxy suggestions there.

The cheapest (while still workable) proxy I've ever seen are the Tim-Mee cavemen sold in dollar stores, the scale is pretty good (especially since Warhammer ogres' sizes are all over the place) even if the detail isn't:
