Welcome to the Last War!

Congratulations on buying Ogre, arguably the best war-game made for over 40 years! Back in 2012 there was a monstrous Kickstarter campaign, where Ogre Designer's Edition was forged. This was the most comprehensive set of rules, units, Ogres and game pieces ever designed for the game. Although these sets have long sold out, Ogre Sixth Edition proudly carries on the Ogre line.

Despite missing out on the ODE Kickstarter, you can get virtually everything you "missed" through currently available options. First, I recommend you read this article, "Closing the Gap":

http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/articles/o6eode.html

It describes how to bring Ogre Sixth Edition virtually on par with the original Ogre Designer's Edition. Some additional links include the following:

Ogre Sixth Edition - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/ogre6e/ (presumably you have that!)
Ogre Reinforcements - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/ogrereinforcements/
Giant Battlefield Map set - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/battlefield/
Sponsored Counter Sheets - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/sponsored-counters/

Don't forget the free Ogre Stream Overlays pdf - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/streams/

Finally, there are a number of Scenario Books that are available to everyone as pdfs through W23:

Book 1 - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobooks/
Book 2 - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobook2/
Book 3 - http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobook3/

There is a lot of other Ogre material on W23 as well which should include the imminent release of Ogre Miniatures Set 1. The Kickstarter for Ogre Miniatures Set 2 is in two weeks . . .

If you haven't already, sign up for "Ogre News". That way, you won't miss a thing re: Ogre going forward. You can find the subscription link here: http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/

Welcome to the battlefield!

Drew,
You reference an Ogre: Battlefields expansion. What is that about and when approximately will it come out?

Battlefields will be an expansion to both Ogre Sixth Edition and Ogre Designer's Edition, fulfilling one of the (few!) remaining ODE promised for the Kickstarter. It should include both G3 and S3 maps, and counters for Combat Engineers, Heavy Weapon Teams, Light Artillery Drones, Ninja, a Vulcan with drones and more. We are hoping to run a Kickstarter for it early next year.

If you have not signed up for "Ogre News", please do so. I will keep you informed of all up-coming Ogre events through that medium. (I try to post here too, but Ogre News is the most consistent). You can sign up at the bottom of the most recent post here: http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/
