Infje, if you order something from Reaper, make sure you order some extra Bones minis you might like. They're cheap, and amazing. As long as you're ordering anyway, why not :P
And remember the import taxes.

I think that it's just the way they should look ;) All they do is eat, fight and eat more :D


Taste differ :D
Besides, they have been depicted in various ways. But I prefer the Wikipedia description:

Ogres (feminine singular: ogress, plural: ogresses) are beings which are usually depicted as large, hideous, humanoid monsters. They are frequently featured in mythology, folklore, and fiction throughout the world. Ogres appear in many classic works of literature, and are most often described in fairy tales and folklore as feeding on human beings. In visual art, ogres are often depicted as having a large head, abundant hair and beard, a voracious appetite, and a strong body.


Just Google "strong body" and see if those results match the stock miniatures :P

cool, are those Ral Partha minis? I like my ogres fat though :P So I'm gonna use my Warhammer ogres, but I think these might be ideal for Infje.

That's a very nice offer Spiky. Thank you. Unfortunately, I'm already in love with the Reaper ones. I'm sure you'll find a nice home for them though.

Bones III came up with a few more Reaper Ogres, and one additional female.

Very big in comparison. Still though, ogres need to be big.
