Isn't redsigning the miniatures a bit like redoing all the Star Trek or Star Wars spaceships to make them a bit "funkier & modern " ?

When the designer has layed out a timeline and a set of designs for an alternate history, where is the logic in redesigning everything every few years (other than sales !!)

No-one seems to suggest resculpting WWII Sherman tanks because they look a bit high sided and easy to target…..

POLL DESCRIPTION

The Ogre Mk.III is equipped with a single main gun.

In the original boardgame, the Ogre can fire all of its weapons in any direction.

However, when using the model on a miniatures tabletop, the main gun - which is in a ball mounting on the front hull - appears to have a limited field of fire. It looks like it could only fire to the forward arc, and might have a limited depression.

If you were designing miniature rules for this model, how would you handle the main gun?

let it fire 360

Let the main gun fire in all directions, just as it does in the boardgame. No explanation needed.

superscience 360

Come up with a plausible reason why the gun can fire in all directions, despite the limited arc of fire. Apply this superscience technology throughout the game.

give it a limited arc of fire

Only allow the main gun to fire at targets in its limited arc of fire.

let it fire 360 and redesign the model

Let the main gun fire in all directions. Redesign the Ogre model so that the gun has an unlimited arc of fire.

not familiar with Ogre

I'm not familiar with the Ogre games from Steve Jackson Games.

not interested in sci-fi gaming
