Just had a chance to sit down and look at these guys, Great minis, great BIG minis topping out at over 40mm each! Nicely detailed with a Sci-Fi option too! link

I believe Wargames Foundry had something like these in metal at one time.

Regarding "classic fantasy" landsknecht ogres, I think Marauder Miniatures may have done them before Foundry did their version. Pics of the Marauder ogres (ca. 1990):


As for these Wargames Atlantic versions, they look very promising on sprue, though I would not mind seeing a few piccies of assembled, unpainted models to see how they look when put together.

My local game store has been stocking some Wargames Atlantic kits, maybe I should ask if they can get these. Need to check first if I have enough spare large bases, though – nine ogres per kit is quite many.

Well, I did find enough spare big bases for at least one boxed set, so let's see if when/if they make it to the local game store.

On another note, the sci-fi "gonnes" and "GI Ogre" heads on the sprues look nice, but I am not really convinced that these would look all that great on frilly renaissance bodies. Would be interesting to see if the manufacturer would be able to re-use them later in a dedicated sci-fi ogre set with some gritty futuristic bodies and other interesting bits (backpacks, canteens, sledgehammers, giant chainsaws etc.).

I bought myself a set and built all available arm combinations once, which means 12 different minis using only "historical" heads:

Inside light:

The painted fellow on the left is a modified Foundry Orge, which are smaller but with larger heads. They Ogres will be painted soon, thus the color on some.
I used Renedra 3cm bases.

Thanks for the pics!

How straightforward were they to assemble? On the pictures the parts seem to fit quite well together.

Those Renedra 30 mm bases look like quite a tight fit.
