Can't believe there isn't more love for LAF/Ratnik's Brugelburg range on this site.

To be honest, if I wasn't perpetually broke lately I would buy & paint a ton of:

Brugelburg
White Knight Dwarfs
Foundry Ogres/Great Orcs

Those look pretty cool.  I don't do Post-Apoc stuff, but it looks like their quality is starting to improve.

I am a big fan of Wargames Factory - they are cheap and cheerful models. They certainly aren't up to the standard of GW, but I do like them. And the price is VERY good.

OK - I give in.

 I have pinged Foundry with three photos of Merc Ogres I know about that they haven't shown yet.

I am surprised White Knight hasn't chipped in - I mean him and Kev Adams are in business together ..............   :closed-eyes:

I might have some spares for trade too.

Update after my email:
(I sent three pics, I had, of ones not listed)

Quote
Hi Mark,

We seem to have made some of those orcs available despite not having the moulds here (unless they are hiding). Ive almost certainly seen the two painted orcs whilst searching for the others.
My present inclination is to not touch anything until we can assess what has been done in error.
The last chap I do not know though. Those I know will definitely be on their way back!

Cheers,

Alex. (Marcus is at college)

2 painted were:
Gnothagam the Proud or Yamizorgl Dragonbreath
and
Drogathog the Vigilant and Watchtower

The last one was a Merc orc with a halberd / polearm in his left hand - a picture from White Knight

So some of those shown may not have moulds - I hope you haven't ordered stuff only to be disappointed guys.

Isnt Drogathog this one? Hes been up for a long time, but in the orclings section.

About Orcs displayed without having moulds....well, well see. I ordered all the new ogres and all orcs except ORCP089. Hope they wont let me down.

Oh that's a good spot - (genuine thanks)

Never thought to look in that section for a Mercenary Ogre  (Sarcasm at Foundry placement)

I've sent you all I had ages ago.  :engel:

And Kev doesn't have pictures or even copies of those models.

Though they do complement the goblin landsknecht range I'm doing with him perfectly.  :closed-eyes:

True, but those orcs could use a nice command section, don't you think?  :engel:

I'll consider it. Though there are already a couple command figures in the packs and you could press a couple of the war orcs command figures into service as well (which is what I did, though I converted them to have more puff).

If you look at the separation Foundry have made between what is an ogre and what is an orc I find some of them questionable.

Some of the ogres are on the small side, and some of the supposed orcs are quite large.

Fustabrook for example is an orc apparently, but would make a good unit champion.

The Drogathog the Vigilant is a good standard bearer option, and there are musicians as well.

In the end, you can just make your own separation based on what looks right. Kev Adams himself said initially they were all just orcs. It just turned out that some ended up bigger than others and the distinction was operated post fact.

Ratnik strikes again with greatswords!



http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=46677.0

So, they have sculpted and released cannons and crews, halberdiers and xbows, and they have WIP sculpts of handgunners, greatswords, swordsmen, and also sniper teams.  Pretty much just need some cavalry and they got most of the empire covered in the Bruegelburg range!

Well, they have a pigrider in the pipeline......

The best thing about them is how well they mix with the foundry orcs, in my opinion.

I am very tempted by the landsknecht cannons of Ratnik. Nothing short of ace.

I was just going to post those!  Kislevites rejoice!

I think the models look great.  I hope to get a unit, but will wait to order them from maelstrom or something like that at a discount.

Does anyone have any experience with / comments on Warlord Game's models? I am specifically asking about the metal figures, the ones from the Immortal Miniatures line they bought in, and also the Imperial Roman Civilians. The Immortal ones look very nice, but the Imperial Roman Civilians don't look quite as nice - but that might be a poor paint job.
