witchhunter.net -> gallery -> ogres
He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
According to the folklore and mythology of the peoples of Northern Europe, the ogres (related to the Latin Orcus, though it purportedly comes from "Hungar" or "Uigur", meaning "Hungarian" or perhaps "Hun") are a race of humanoid beings, fierce and cruel monsters, that eat human flesh; they are also shy and cowardly, and have little or no intelligence and cleverness, which makes it easy for men to defeat them. A female of this race is called an ogress. Ogres are said to be able to change their shape at will into animals or objects, and they often dwell in marvelous palaces or castles, sometimes underground. In art, ogres are often depicted with a big head, abundant and hirsute hair and beard, a huge belly, and a strong body.

The word gained popularity from its use in the late 17th century by Charles Perrault, the author of Contes de ma mère l'oye (Tales of Mother Goose). Since then, ogres have appeared in many works, including "Tom Thumb" and "Hansel and Gretel".


Norse Barbarian Ogres
These buddies are the "heavy support" for my norse barbarian army. I have chosed those miniatures fairly thorough, i wanted to get a troop that looks barbarous and savage. I think, the three fellows are up to requirements, although they are from different manufacturers and sculptors. Click the pics to see larger pictures of them.
