Gundabad Ogres £56

99021487004_GundabadOgresbundle01

Within the ranks of Azog’s Legions, the Gundabad Ogres will often fight in pairs or sometimes whole packs. Whilst some Ogres will charge their targets head-on, others will attack from the flanks, ensuring that at least one of them will make it to their prey unscathed – one bulldozing through the ranks of both friend and foe, whilst the other attacks their true target.

Gundabad Ogres are both a Monster and a Warrior for the Azog’s Legion army list, allowing you to take multiples of these vile creatures in your force. These mounds of heaving flesh wield great wooden clubs used to smash aside the broken corpses of their unfortunate victims. In the game, the Gundabad Ogres move further than most Warriors and can run through their own models, forcing their way into the fight – meaning that it is all but impossible to block them in and prevent them wreaking havoc upon their foes. This bundle contains one Gundabad Ogre I and one Gundabad Ogre II. The heads and club-wielding hands are completely interchangeable, allowing for a degree of customisation between the models.

Rules for using these models can be found in The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy™ There and Back Again.

This collection contains two complete, multi-part resin kits. Two 50mm round bases are included.

 

Gundabad Ogre 1 £28

99551466001_GundabadOgre101

The Gundabad Ogres are utilised by Azog™ as a means of rooting out and destroying the war machines of the Iron Hills. These hulking beasts rampage through both friend and foe in order to fulfill their master’s orders, leaving a trail of devastation in their wake. These foul creatures care not what they trample, Orc or otherwise, as they careen towards their target with malicious intent, and when they meet their enemy’s ranks, they waste little time in crushing them beneath their huge clubs or flinging the crumpled bodies of their foes across the battlefield.

Gundabad Ogre 2 £28

99551466002_GundabadOgre201

This kit contains one Gundabad Ogre II, and also includes a dead Iron Hills Dwarf for the Ogre to put its foot on. The head and club hand are completely interchangeable with Gundabad Ogre I.

Gundabad Line-Breakers £100

99021487005_GundabadLinebreakers01

The combination of Gundabad Ogres and Gundabad Berserkers has proved to be a deadly and effective asset to Azog’s forces. As the Ogres smash through the ranks of their enemies, leaving their foes crumpled upon the floor, the Berserkers pile into the gaping holes left in the Ogres’ wake, exploiting the newly created wounds in their enemies’ defences with malicious delight. There are few armies that can stand up to an onslaught from the Gundabad Line-breakers – most will fall from the first strike of an Ogre’s massive wooden club, and those who are ‘fortunate’ enough to survive will soon be set upon by the vicious Gundabad Berserkers.

The Gundabad Line-breakers set is an excellent addition to an Azog’s Legion army list, providing a selection of its most fearsome Warriors in the form of the Gundabad Ogres and Gundabad Berserkers. In your games, the high Movement value of both of these models means that they can close in on their foes faster than other infantry, and when they arrive, both the Ogres and the Berserkers are more than capable of ripping through their foes, crumpling armour and slicing flesh with a variety of wicked-looking weaponry. This bundle contains two sets of three Gundabad Berserkers, one Gundabad Ogre I and one Gundabad Ogre II.

 

The Ogres are bad! How bad? GUNDABAD!

  • Rainthezangoose

    Its a god damn shame the “bundles” don’t have discounts, these and the iron hill dwarfs are BEAUTIFUL, but out of my price range ; _ : and its not like you can get them cheaper else where like normal GW or other wargames.

  • Aezeal

    Are these expensive even for GW/FW standards?

    • CMAngelos

      For their size they seem to be on par with everything else in their size class.

      • Rainthezangoose

        These are actually not too bad. It’s the iron hill dwarfs that are over priced. £40 for 12 models, from a range that sells 12 dwarfs for £15 or £20.

        • ZeeLobby

          Yeah. Way too pricey those dwarves, but damn beautiful.

      • Aezeal

        Are they that big? I mean my Kurnoth hunters are 46 euro/ 3 and you get very nicely detailed rather huge dracothian guard for 40 pounds.

        seems like this is much more expensive.

        • Morgrim

          Resin models are always more expensive than plastic models of the same size, due to higher material costs and the extra labour in casting them. They’re priced similarly to other FW resins of their size.

          • Aezeal

            Haven’t bought FW so I was comparing them to the GW plastics indeed. Guess FW is just a bit expensive for my taste. (I have the feeling.. but correct me if I’m wrong that their Dragon etc are closer to GW big models prices (usually still more pricy but also bulkier in most cases.)

          • Morgrim

            Big chunky models in relatively few pieces are where resin casting techniques excel, so prices don’t ‘scale’ as badly for larger resin models than plastic. Or rather that small fiddly models are hell on the casting molds and that means more work and more frequent mold replacements, which doesn’t help with the price.

            Once you go above a certain production run plastics are cheaper to produce for small models (hence Finecast being characters only) but due to the challenges of making large plastic model molds that crossover point is a LOT higher for big things. I think I read once that you need about 20k units sold over the lifetime of the mold to break even? Given the improvements in injection casting that may no longer be accurate though.

  • ZeeLobby

    I can safely say that these Hobbit minis are the best fantasy minis GW is putting out right now.

    • Matthew Pomeroy

      pretty much yep, looking forward to more 😀

    • Aezeal

      Hmmm well.. I think these are rather simple and very pricy.

      • Rainthezangoose

        Rather this nice realistic aesthetic then age of sigmarines over designed eye swores!

        :imirightladsandlasses:

        • Aezeal

          Nah I’ve got the basic set and I love the Stormcasts in there. Chaos does less for me but I never like the chaos vibe in general. And the most recent woodelf models and my new Sylvaneth are just great.

      • ZeeLobby

        The only real anatomical realistic AoS models released so far are the fyreslayers (everything else is covered with armor and doodads, though I guess fyreslayers are as well with the runes, but whatever). And yeah. These are definitely pricey, but they also didn’t require a plastering of stuff. Of course my comment is totally IMO. Personally I think the dwarves they recently released for The Hobbit are some of the best looking dwarf minis I’ve ever seen. And these look pretty threatening and imposing without requiring massive weaponry or spikey armor bits. I don’t know whose doing this ranges sculpts, but it’s the first time I’ve ever considered buying some GW models that I have no intention of ever playing their intended game with, haha.

        That said, I’m hoping AoS’s duardin look as good. It’s really the faction I’m waiting for (or the humans).

        • SupPupPup

          Urrgh. Im converting up my fyreslayers at the moment. They have the worst anatomy.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. Especially with their starfish poses.
