Shieldwolf Miniatures are going to be taking to Kickstarter early next year to fund a range of different armies for their fantasy world. One of these that has been previewed is their Ogre Mercenaries from Talliareum…
Here’s a bit of a lowdown on their history…
“No one remembers how long ago these huge brutes decided to live among the Humans in the Kingdom of Talliareum. The Ogres do not go unnoticed, standing more than 8 feet tall and weighing some 400 pounds each! It comes as no surprise that they took advantage in the past of their natural strength and physical structure to beat people up, steal, abuse; there was a time they practically did as they pleased. But as the Kingdom of Talliareum slowly formed, the Ogres soon found out they couldn’t deal with the better organised Humans. Highly outnumbered, they consistently got arrested, beaten, imprisoned and even executed. Some Ogres left for far away lands, but many stayed, choosing to obey the Law. Well, in a certain sense at least…”
…so pretty perfect as stand ins for a massive Empire army in Warhammer Fantasy potentially or even a proper Ogre Kingdoms mercenary army. As well as the Ogres there is also going to be an army of Valley Orcs (I hope it’s not similar to Valley Girls!) and much more too.
Some superb artwork and hopefully we’ll see some preview sculpts soon.
What do you think?
