I like the idea. I think I'll sculpt a bunch and make them fit the dungeon range, i.e. put them on 15² bases. For fun at least. Maybe a handful, with axe, mace, club, cleaver, cleave-axe; wearing leather and hide armor, shoulder plates and shields occasionally.

Cheers

Now that could tempt the multiple pound notes out of my wallet!

Sounds good.  I've just bought lots of minatours  as stand ins for WM Ogres but more variety is always good.

The Trolls are excellent. I do already use the Troll Leader in my Middle Earth games. There’s nothing a good piece of custom placed armour here, or a `green stuff` tusk there that a good pair of hands can`t make an awesome mini look even more in keeping with your desired mythos.

Sizes, in fantasy; I mean what is the size of a Rat, or a Dwarf, or a....  whatever?

No, end of the day it’s down to whether you like the whimsical, often inspired, and absolutely different (aka unique) line that Pendraken makes, or whether you want to go for the GW `sheep mentality `"Oh look, my army looks e-x-a-c-t-l-y like your army, oh! and look, so does his.. and his, and his". Personally I like Pendraken for what it does. By this I mean it offers a unique peek into a fantastical subject, offers a comprehensive (all metal) range covering a myriad of creatures and humanoids, and offers them to us for an unbeatably affordable price.

1.60 for a pack of 10 miniatures is a heck of a good price I think.

Naaa, give me a Pendraken Miniatures Troll, or any other mini for that matter any day over 10mm things made by anyone else.

I don`t know about you, but I like to build my collection to be aesthetically complete. By this I mean I like to ensure that when I start collecting a range... I know I will be able to flesh it out and complete that collection - all from just one company. This way the collection feels like a collection and not a hotchpotch amalgamation of thrown together pieces from a series of different non matching ranges.... if you collected “Clare Craft Pottery Cottages”, would you put a John Turner “Made in Clay” one on the same shelf alongside them?  There’s nothing as pleasing as picking off `this and that` all from just one favoured company, and watching a complete collection grow steadily over time. And Pendraken offers me just that. A vast range to choose and collect from, and at a great price.

Of course, this is only my opinion, and each collector is free to choose exactly what they want for themselves. But for my two pennies worth, ROCK ON Pendraken Miniatures.

Happy gaming  Smiley

There's no doubt the Pendraken prices are unbeatable ! Perfectly fair prices.  Shocked

I like the Troll Leader - shame I didn't see it before, should get one Smiley . He's like the big and trolly butcher you can not identify as a member of any known race, who cuts and slices everything his master, the alchimist, likes to throw in his soup (and who's probably the product of a slave thrown into such a soup). But they actually are a bit cartoony. They remind me a lot of what I imagined "The Hobbit" 's troll trio would look like. If you imagine your ogres as cruel and merciless beasts driven by their endless hunger for human flesh that'll creep the hell out of you in a narrow dungeon corridor you need something more ... evil  Evil

Cheers !

I support the idea of armored ogres BUT I do agree with what Sixsideddice said about pendraken. use creativity, the same kind of flair that is seen in the rest of your minies! I am useing pendraken for WHFB, but that does not mean I cant aprrecaite things that dont support GW hegemony.

With you there 100% KOV, and it looks like together well be creating from scratch on this one, you initially on your Empire (if I read correctly) and me on my Undead legions. This is going to be fun.

Now where did I put my Armoured Ogres..... ah yes!

I like you already  Wink  we think alike.

Hmmm, while you wait for your minis to arrive, how about browsing all you can on line about 10mm (sadly, there`s not nearly enough material on this scale, but there are some gem sites and blogs to be found). Its what I did way back when I started in this scale and while I was pacing and waiting for my first order to wing its way to me.

Aye, we do think alike. I sense we are destined by the Gods of War to brothers in nerdiness over the internet.  I will take your advice all the way to the limits of my google-fu

hehe, you probably wouldn`t find it on line; the language is Anglo Saxon; which is often bastardised in movies and by companies (like GW) for their suitably sounding book material.

At last, that unit of Old and Middle English I did at Uni will be useful for something, 20 years later...
