Errors already starting to show. Maul/club with no positive AP? Las cutter with Scarce no longer has Ammo value? How does that work? Quality is going to be sheet.

They're a bit out of the blue, but really excellent models.

They are worth getting a set just to mix into IG or Admech. Glad they are plastic, and nice to see more esoteric units getting models.

The ogryns are fantastic models. I want to get a few just to accompany my tech priest on the display shelf. I'm sure he could use the muscle to replace Baneblade track links, etc. Thanks for the hint about Artel W's version as well, I love that they have one with a Juggernaut helmet.

Yep, absolutely loving the Ogryn gang.

Is it confirmed they're plastic?

It was confirmed on Facebook, according to someone on bolter and Chainsword.

Wonderful minis. Looks to be just two poses, so if we're lucky then we'll get 4 to a box?

The warhammer Instagram posted a pic showing off more of the ogryns. One head is very closer to FW mad dog mono's...I can work with that. They even have the same color scheme.

Options are:
Augmetic fist
Arc welder (fist plus the back coil)
Spud jacker
Storm welder

Helmeted ones are lobo slaves

Storm welder isn't a great weapon for these guys.

Yeah, I think 2 to a sprue, 2 sprues in the box.

Agreed. Very, very outside chance of six to a box (three sets of sprues)?

Vigo. Spain.

In the promotional image, there where three ogryns... so thats how many I believe will come in the box.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

There can’t be three, because there’s 2 different sets of legs and two different torso fronts, so they have to be in multiples of 2.

Two pairs of legs is a bit meh, but I bet you're left with so many spare bitz from one box that converting more from plastic ogryns or ogres is totes doable. I expect Ogryn gangs would be very small, anyway, like 3-4 fighters tops?

It's possibly three, with duplicates of one sprue and a single of the other.

Not likely, mind, just that it's a possibility the one sprue was intended for the named character but instead they figured they'd just throw him in with the normal stuff.

And the parts just happen to be interchangeable between the character and the normal ones? I’d say that scenario is ‘not likely’ to the point of almost impossibility.

The "‘Jotunn’ H-Grade Servitor-Ogryn" brute is 210 credits, so 4 sounds about right.

Like I said, it's a possibility. T.H.R.U.G. 12(Lascutter, Augmetic Fist, Maul) hasn't been pictured yet but his loadout seems possible from what we've seen.

Also worth noting that, as far as I'm aware, we haven't seen the middle Ogryn with a Storm Welder:
Spoiler:

We've seen that pose with Arc Welders though.

"Spud jacker"? What on earth does that thing have to do with potatoes? And since when is "wrench" a not-good-enough name?

It'll be the same as every other Necromunda plastic kit: One sprue repeated. So likely two sets of duplicated bodies.

It's not a wrench, it's an oversized caliper.

The middle body and the one to the right use the same body, just different legs. All of these Ogryn's bodies have a metal stump in their right shoulder, allow you to left it as it is, or put on weapons, and pose it a bit without affecting the muscle definition.

Maybe I'm mistaken but I think saw over on FB more than just those first 3 pictures. It seems they've done up the models to show the different distinct builds and not necessarily reflect what comes in the kit.

As far as gang size goes, if the Ogryn brute is anything to go by, those are ~200 credits a piece without any of the new fancy stuff. So a gang should be no more than 5 models at 1000 credits, but you'd likely have to or want to equip them with the fancy gear in the new kit.... which means you might do 4 for ~800 credits, then spend 200 on better gear for a couple of them. So 2 boxes of 2 to build a gang makes sense... Unfortunately because it makes sense its that much more likely GW will sell them 3 to a box and force you to buy to 2 boxes of 3 to get your 4.

I think this might be the first game where a lascutter was actually something to worry about.

That said, I really want to build one to have double bionic arms, double bionic legs, and the visored head.

There's a bunch of different ones shown in this very thread, but none showing the middle pose with a Storm Welder. That's why I said what I did.
Beast_gts posted some a bit up, DaveC put another.

Now that we have an all brute gang... I can't help but look at the Arachni-rig and see it as notionally in the spirit of Spyrers... easy imagining them being updated as an all brute gang... gives me hope.

Gotcha. I agree it really seems to be the special character or like you said single sprue of that pose and double of the other.

I bet they are going to come in a box of 3, but the the minimum gang size would be 4 - typical GW to force you to buy more boxes...
