November 29, 2016: Ogre Miniatures Set 1 - The Final 24 Hours
We are just entering the last 24 hours of our lastest Kickstarter, this being Ogre Miniatures Set 1. Impressive stretch goals have all fallen before this beast. We've added ten units to the base set, unlocked a hunter green set, added a free glow-in-the-dark Ogre Mark III to many pledges, reduced the shipping, and more! If the next 24 hours are similar to the last 24, we may see a free glow-in-the-dark Ogre Mark V and the possibility of glow-in-the-dark conventional units (the elusive "Ghost Army")! Plus you can purchase additional glow-in-the-dark Ogres. To quote a long-time supporter of the game, "If you can't light the map in the dark with the units, you don't have enough." Well said, GranitePenguin!
We've also added new support tiers, including a "Many Minis" level, where backers will get two each of the standard, reverse, and hunter green sets (and one glow-in-the-dark set if we reach that stretch goal!). Not only are these sets discounted from retail, but the Ogre Veteran and Many Minis levels have even further discounts!
But these fantastic additions are only possible through the actions of our fans, and we humbling thank you for the amazing support you've shown. If you are still sitting on the fence, jump off and click on over, because this Ogre Kickstarter is just about to crush the CP!

Ogre and its sequel, G.E.V., are tactical ground combat games set in the late 21st century. In 2085 A.D., armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks and infantry slug it out with tactical nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's the giant cybernetic tank called the Ogre.
Ogre was Steve Jackson's first design. It was originally released in 1977, as the first Metagaming Microgame. Since then, it has appeared in Pocket Box and "Deluxe" large-board editions, as well as a miniatures version and a computer game from Origin Systems (now long out of print).
