Gathering the Informations.

I'm really glad that they seem to finally be getting more responsive to the idea of letting us know the material/purchasing venue.

This wonderfully characterful resin Rat Ogre miniature is coming soon, so sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear of its official release date. In the meantime, grab yourself a Skavenblight Scramblers set in preparation for the arrival of your awesome new Big Guy.


So, he'll be Forge World.

That is a solid Rat Ogre. Nothing too fancy, and that's probably a good thing. Great addition, and could see myself getting it to convert for Mordheim.

Agreed. A nice sculpt and will fit right in with any Skaven (Blood Bowl or Mordheim).

That Rat Ogre is nice, if it wasn’t for the fact it’s produced by a company with poor QA that charges a ridiculous price for postage which they then send untracked and poorly packed, it’d buy it.

Don't need them to say that to know. These things are always Forge World and always resin. Personally, the material and price is the least interesting part. My "problem" is I already got the previous FW Rat Ogre (~4 years ago) and converted one from Fantasy/AoS too. This is the best one so far, but way too late for a team that was released in 2016/2017.

I'm surprised he's resin actually. The ogre, troll, and treeman are all in plastic, now we gotta go back to resin for big guys?

And for the difference in price and availability, the Reaper rat ogre, likely sitting in a blister back over on the wall at your FLGS, seems like a really good option still. You don't really even have to do anything to him except put him on a 40mm base.

I admit, I really do like the new resin Rat Ogre but FW means I'll likely never get one...

So this new Rat Ogre replaces the current not-nearly-as-good one?

I think it might be due to how many teams can use them. Ogres, Trolls and even Treemen can be in different teams. Rat Ogres are Skaven and... well they're not Lizardmen or Elven Union, are they?

The new Rat Ogre is a callback to the 3rd ed Star Player Rat Ogre - Headsplitter - shoulder trim, mail hooded head with drooling tongue, chain wrapped fist and stitching. Only thing absent is the club tail.

This is a good thing. And iirc 3rd ed Blood Bowl was the time when you literally had to buy multiples of the same star player on some teams to get what you can get as standard today!

Yes, that's the one. I don't know if Nolzur's or the Pathfinder line have many good substitutes, but the Bones line is really great for Blood Bowl. They have that rat ogre, trolls, a treeman, probably some ogres though you may to cut the weapons off of them. You can buy five bug guys from Reaper for the price of one GW plastic big guy. Or you can drop $500 and order big guys and useful star players from Forge World if you wanna live large. At least there's options. As nice as that new rat ogre is, I don't ever want to order from Forge World myself.

Not surprised at all. On the contrary, I'm surprised ogre, troll and treeman are GW plastic, but they generally used by way more teams than the rat ogre. Well except treeman. If you like the reaper rat ogre, nothing stops you from getting one. I know if I had to choose, it would be the FW resin rat ogre without a doubt.

Technically the sets contain the generic Fanatic and Bomma from the team roster, not the Star Player versions (both within the Secret Weapons set) - I wouldn't say you couldn't use them as the Star Players, but I don't think that's the intended use.

I guess I must be confusing them with these guys, but I could'a sworn we've seen these specific two minis before...
