Cheap Ogre Alternatives

I have always been disappointed in the new design of Games Workshop Ogres and the teeny legs Mantic design also doesn't interest me. In looking for a cheap alternative which wasn't semi naked and more Old School design I stumbled across these on sale from a company called Tehnolog based in Russia who sell via Ebay. There are 4 `Orcs' per packet which scale nicely with GW figures, for £2.35 a packet plus £3.92 postage I'm very pleased.

I don't think that the rest of the range will be of much use to me as a gamer but I've ordered a fair few packets for my 5year old Grandson.
Here is a fantasy toys soldiers review showing what else they do.

Asgard Miniatures FG5 .. wanted

         I am currently trying to locate the very first miniature I bought way back in the early 1980's, the Asgard Miniatures FG5 Giant Orc in plate armour. Now this cost me the princely sum of 30p  and the figure came with a separate spear or axe, not the sword a shown. I never threw my figure out, it was lovingly painted in Humbrol enamels - black armour with a green face, and a hand painted 5 pointed star on the shield but somehow it has gone missing.
Asgard miniatures was taken over by Tabletop Games in Nottingham and at some time the moulds were sold on. Some moulds went to Alternative Armies and Gavin Symes doesn't have this figure in his stock. Some moulds went to Viking Forge in Virginia USA but Lorn doesn't have the moulds either.
My daily Asgard miniatures and preslotta worldwide searches on Ebay haven't yielded one yet.
Bryan Ansell was asked on my behalf at the recent BOYL weekend but he can't remember the figure.
I posted on the LAF( Lead Adventuer Forum) but although some people remember it and some have even owned one in the past they have all gone to other homes.
I was wondering if anyone in the blog-o-sphere has one or knows of one for sale.
Many thanks.
