OGRONS – DOCTOR WHO INTO THE TIME VORTEX EXPANSION

PrintE-mail Written by Ed Fortune

Back in the ‘70s, the terrifying and unstoppable Daleks did have one notable limitation; the budget of the BBC. John Pertwee’s Doctor was probably well aware that in theory, the Daleks could not be stopped by stairs, but alas the BBC did not have the budget to have the pepper-pot dictators ascend. Worse, anything that required carrying or moving stuff was difficult, given that Dalek’s don’t really have hands. Enter the Ogrons, bestial humoids who did the fetching and carrying for the Dalek Empire. They also happen to be the subject of Warlord Games’ latest expansion for their Doctor Who miniatures game.

The set comes with three differently posed Ogrons. Each one resembles some sort ‘70s disco murder monkey monster with a Klingon style moustaches and a mullet that only a murderer would wear. They’re carefully detailed but in a way that isn’t too difficult to paint. The poses (and mould lines) are clean and required little prep work. In addition each wields one of those funky Ogron pistols and a patient hobbyist could easily adjust the pose or weapon if needs be.

They are very uniform in design as well. This works as they’re supposed to part of a discrete military unit within the Dalek Empire, but it does make them a little samey. Painting will be required if you want to mark one model out as the leader; they may have different poses but much like the Daleks, it’s hard to make them stand out from each other without a drop of paint. The sculpt is spot on, however. They could have stepped straight off of the TV screen.

These are welcome addition to a Dalek army. They’re not as iconic or as scary as Daleks but theoretically they’re more versatile. A lot of the scenarios in the Doctor Who Exterminate! Starter Set require you to sacrifice units and these primitive looking dudes are perfect for that.
