Although it feels a bit late, I'll chime in as well. I *like* most of the existing designs, and in fact, recently bought a PILE of the Combine units to use with DSII. The few designs that I don't like are:

Combine GEV
PE Missile Tank
PE Light Tank

Hm. That's actually about it.

Now, that said, I would certainly not object to *additional new designs* of existing units. A second heavy tank model, an alternate missile tank, etc. I mean, if you look at things historically, it's only been very recently that nations have started to really consolidate on designs. The US M-1 is a good example. It's our ONLY BMT. But then, look at WWII. Germany had how many versions of PzIVs? PzIIIs? Only a handful of Panthers and Tigers, mostly being design details, and not major *capability* changes, but still, it would allow for easy justification for additional models.

I have been talking to a local guy about doing some OGRE minis gaming, and may actually use some DSII minis I have in OGRE minis roles. No reason that my Wolf MBTs can't be Heavy Tanks. :)

So, my vote is (and was) not to redisign. But I'd support new, additional designs with my wallet, which is where it counts.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Are the Ogre (Steve Jackson Games) vehicle designs "classics" that should continue to be produced?

Or are they dated concepts, that should be re-imagined for a modern audience?
