Ogre (1981)

This little dude is also an ogre, from Dimensions for Children’s Dragon Riders of the Styx line. You may recall (or you can scroll back in my feed to re-read) that DFC lifted David C. Sutherland’s Monster Manual illustrations as the basis for sculpts for a number of figures in this line (naga, orc and shambling mound). The ogre, while reminiscent of the MM illustration, is a unique design.

Highlights for me are the pointy helmet and the wavy sword. I also appreciate that fact that he looks like someone’s surly uncle who had been convinced to LARP.
